Drakon - quick and easy game where you play one of 6 characters (each with a different ability) and steal the dragon's gold. Game really needs 5 or 6 players to work well but is lots of fun.

Citadels - card game where you build districts in your city by selecting different characters each round which have different abilities - sometimes to benefit yourself, sometimes to interfere with others. I really like this game. Only played 2 and 3 player so far. This weekend will be 5 or 6 players.

Quartermaster General - WW2 game where the Axis take on the Allies. Played 3 games. Won the first easily then flogged twice in a row having got simply shocking cards. I really like this game but the luck of the cards do have a big influence.

Thursday night braved the depths of Africa with Ticket to Ride - Africa map. Managed to win by wife selecting ticket to complete when both down to almost all carriages done and I’d done my tickets. So I just completed a long route to get down to enough carriages to trigger end game and hope she didn’t have the ticket already or almost already done. She didn’t so won (and got called some names for doing an obvious move to have her having to take points off 🤪).

Today, only bit over 3 months since my birthday, but finally got to try out Tidal Blades Heroes of Reef, that I got for it. Both of us no clue what we were doing so rulebook and guide continually consulted. We both enjoyed it, so will reset for us to play again now we have some idea on how to play it.

We played Dominion twice (I won the first against two really experienced players, but they did direct me twice when I was unsure of my move) and then a quick game of:

Recently purchased Dominion as I’ve heard lots of good things. And Escape from Atlantis is on my to buy list!

It's quite a simple game, good for kids but also pretty fun for us.
Great family game, though everyone needs to be prepared for brutality! I like to use the extra modules and variant rules to really crowd up the board.

A couple of games of Quacks of Quedlinburg today. Split with a win apiece, for the wife and I.

Three games of ‘Shadow Kingdoms of Valeria” and one game each of “Trick Shot” and “Rollercate”

Afew games nights planned this week so fingers crossed for even more to share. We’ll plat TfM, Azul, Dice Command and Nidavellir at least.

Games day Saturday with friends.
First up Welcome To.

Then Just One. Two games of 10 of 13. That bloody elusive perfect 13 still eludes us!

Then onto Flash Point. First time as a five player. Unlike our pathetic four player effort awhile ago, where we lost 4 victims quickly, we succeeded in saving the required seven.

Then the main game of Age of Empires III. Too long since played (one of my favourites). When the hostess offered this as one of the 5 player games she has (as one more than our usual 4 yesterday), I jumped to put my vote for it. I'll be very un-PC and take pride in the Dutch conquering the new world, for a narrow victory.

Lastly some Similo. Some with combined sets, some alone.
