Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 3 October 2016 18 October 2016

Having been evicted from the Two Brewers for not drinking enough, we gathered at the Marlow Donkey for the fourth meeting of this Meetup-based boardgames group.

We began with several rounds of 6 Nimmt!, which I really ought to buy as I enjoy it when I play it. Even though, with two really terrible rounds, I came solidly in last place.

Then on to a couple of games of The Resistance, slightly odd with six players – but still in Avalon mode. This time we had two old hands, three who'd played last month, and one novice - and both games came out fairly close again.

We ended the evening with six-sided Scrimish, which is never going to be my favourite game, but thanks to a bit of beginner's luck and I suspect my opponents' misreading of my strategies I ended up winning. Considering that this is largely a memory game, and I'm usually terrible at those, I'm amazed. I worked out some key things to try to remember through the round, focused on kicking people when they were down, and got lucky.
