Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 17 February 2020 26 March 2020

This Meetup-based boardgames group continues, in normal times, to meet at the Marlow Donkey.

At a new player's request, we started with BANG! The Dice Game. Yes, all right, he was one of the first to be eliminated. I actually did rather better than usual, ending up in a one-on-one showdown with the sheriff; but arrows did for me in the end.

Several games of Codenames next, which we haven't played for a while. Still works well, though I'm still unlikely to want a copy for myself.

We went on to Celestia, a push-your-luck game in which I could see how the strategy might evolve but I don't think it would have much replay value. Lovely bits, though.

Finally FUSE, in which everyone did terribly badly, but it's that rare thing a game with a reliable length. Still didn't get any pictures though.
