Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 18 December 2017 22 December 2017

This Meetup-based boardgames group continues to meet at the Marlow Donkey. This time it was a fairly small session; people seem to be in a pre-Christmas sort of mode.

We started with For Sale, which makes little sense in thematic terms but is quite fun once one gets the hang of what's going on.

We tried Magic Maze, though as at Thirsty Meeples last month I fear I enjoyed it rather more than the other players did. (And as usual I didn't get round to photographing it; it's quite an intense experience.)

I got Quantum out, one I haven't played for far too long, but which I still found great fun. It's perversely un-thematic (your spaceships are dice, and at times you re-roll them), and yet the theme leaks through anyway.

We ended the evening with Augustus, at which I did terribly as usual, though I think I'm starting to see why.
