Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 4 July 2016 24 July 2016

This new group is organised via Meetup, and I went along to the initial meeting in the Churchill Tap.

Which suffers from trendy lighting, so Mysterium may not have been the best choice – but people were enthusiastic about it, I still had it in my mind after Stabcon, and with some torches we made do. (A loss at the final challenge, but the players enjoyed it anyway.)

In the tail end of the evening I played Ricochet Robots, definitely out on the puzzle-solving end of game design but with some intriguing bidding and timing mechanics. I'll give this another go some time.

It was only a short meeting to judge local interest, but there seems to be quite a bit. The current plan is to meet on first Mondays (ideally in brighter pubs) and see how things go.

[Buy Mysterium at Amazon] [Buy Ricochet Robots at Amazon] and help support the blog.
