Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 2 October 2017 22 October 2017

This Meetup-based boardgames group continues to meet at the Marlow Donkey.

I arrived a little late, while people were playing Eco Fluxx. It did what a Fluxx game should, and ended in about ten minutes. (If Fluxx did that reliably, I'd like it a lot better.)

What turned out to be the main event of the evening was Artificium, a game I'd missed completely when it came out. It's thoroughly un-thematic but quite enjoyable, with cards that let you convert things into more valuable things. I was even briefly in the lead, though of course I didn't win.

We had a few rounds of Codenames, for which I probably shouldn't be the clue-giver even though I enjoy it, and then finished the evening with Concept as the last bell was rung.

The bar staff like us, which makes a nice change from a previous venue where we got un-invited for not spending enough. The beer's usually the same, but well-kept, and the food's not bad at all.
