Thirsty Meeples November 2022 10 November 2022

Back to the boardgame café. Yup, last time we went was in December 2019.

And we started with a new roll and write, Dice Hospital: ER – Emergency Roll. Unlike many of these, there is some player interaction: one player each round gets sole use of one of the available dice. There's some commonality with the full Dice Hospital, but there are also some false friends for the unwary. A pleasant diversion, but I felt I'd seen most of the game in this one play, and wouldn't seek it out again.

Sub Terra, a game I quite enjoyed last time I played it, but with lots of little points of friction - the odd symbols, the randomness, the way the game seems to be won or lost more by choosing the right amount to spread out than by the actual decisions you make while exploring.

And finally the traditional Timeline: this time British History and Music and Cinema. I think we may start looking for another short light game to close out the evening; this really has outworn its welcome for us.
