Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 1 March 2021 07 March 2021

This Meetup-based boardgames group remains on-line for the moment; as usual we got together on Jitsi and then played some games online.

First a couple of games of Draftosaurus: drafting dinosaurs into one's park (apparently that's normal enough not to be worthy of notice now, after the flood of dinosaur-park-themed games over the last few years). With five players only the very first hand would come round again. This has a surprisingly roll-and-write feel to it, I think perhaps because of all the constraints on placement; and it would be much more fun with the actual dinosaur meeples. Still, enjoyable and I'd happily play it again.

On to Welcome To…, which I've only played once before (late in an evening at Essen 2018). This time I felt I was slightly more on top of things, and did a reasonable job.

Also at the end of each turn BGA shows you where everyone else played, and puts a hard hat over their user picture.

Finally, The Crew, which gets played last because once we start playing it we tend to keep going till the end of the evening. Definitely more challenging with five, but that just means we get to play it more…
