Here comes Daves Boardgame report from Sunday (yesterday):
Hello everyone! Well, we had a good, lively session last night with six members in all. Two members got sick at the last moment and had to cancel and Robert also remained at home for personal reasons. So, let's get started....
On the left and around the table, we have Don, a new member Darren, Christine, Marco, Andy and I fill in the gap. On the photo is just another view of the same fine folks as we're about to play a card game called 'Set' which, sadly, everyone else found easy to play and I was left floundering around like a fish out of water. Just thinking about it gives me a headache.....
We had started out the night with three players - myself, Andy and Darren playing a series of the game 'Obsession' followed by the game of King Oil. The game was evenly matched for most of the game but Darren got hit by fire and some greed by Andy and myself and went down in flames. After that, Andy went after me with a vengeance and I was forced to concede defeat. Don showed up and introduced 'Kill Dr. Lucky' to the group and I could be wrong, but I believe Don won this game. By this time everyone had arrived and we moved on to 'Keythedral' Pro Ludo. Of the games we played, I think we all enjoyed playing this game, which is similar to 'Settlers of Catan', and I believe the team of Marco & Christine won that game. You know how it is - two heads are better than one!
We decided to move to a lighter game and played 'Set' and then the infamous 'Flash 10'. Here, I'll take a moment to make Marco & Christine cringe and just say '45 minutes!' ha ha. If you don't ask, we won't be forced to tell this story. We finished out the night by playing 'Acquire'. (Did you read that, Julia? You missed out!)
I admit that Don and I have played this game many times but others of the group had not and had a hard time grasping the financial aspects of the game which took their enthusiasm down a notch, but didn't prevent them from doing quite well in the game. I thought I was losing throughout the game but I won, I won, I won! Call Guinness Book!
I hope you all had a fun night and a safe drive home. Come back again, y'hear?
Optimistic, curious, human bee.
