Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 3 December 2018 07 December 2018

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

We started with Secret Hitler, one I haven't played for a while; indeed, while I liked the game, I've sold my copy. It's OK… but I'd still rather play The Resistance.

We had another session of Human Punishment, which certainly takes longer with eight than the five-player games I've played via TTS, but is still my second-favourite social deduction game at the moment. (I don't suppose The Resistance will ever fall off the top spot, given how much variability one has with the various expansions.) It could really have used a native English speaker to write the rulebook, though.

Finally, a couple of games of One Night Ultimate Werewolf: still not really my thing, though I think it would have worked better if we'd all had a better understanding of just how the roles worked.
