Facebook Event

We had ten people and three parallel games going for most of the evening. The place was extremely busy, as it is every day, so the games guru wasn’t there to help us choose games initially. We picked our own and eventually dealt with fascinating questions such as “How do we ever get to 100?,” “Why is this so &%$*£! complicated?,” and “Where do you want to put that living room?”  One new game, Azul, impressed with beautiful playing pieces and a simple central premise.  Much fun was had by a mix of new punters and familiar faces.
