Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 21 May 2018 04 July 2018

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

Having a group of six cut down the options slightly, but we still had plenty of games available. We began with Startups, which it turns out we played slightly wrongly at Expo – but interestingly it still stood up well.

Arguable classic Elfenland next, in which you're trying to visit twenty cities via paths through various terrain types and modes of transport. I think perhaps there's one level of indirection too many (do thing A to be able to do thing B which gets you thing C), but it's still a pleasing puzzle.

Finally, Augustus, in which I thought I was having my worst game yet… but turned out to be about half-way up the pack. Hmm.

[Buy Elfenland at Amazon] [Buy Augustus at Amazon] and help support the blog.
