Yesterday, I had friends round to play boardgames, and I planned to cook some burgers, as it is fairly effortless with the pellet grill, and doesn’t keep me away from the games table. Mindful of what I said on Saturday, I visited my butcher, only…

I’m just going out to collect a new eBay purchase: This is a coffee table that converts into a full height dining table, about 3.5′ x 4.5′ – slightly smaller than my oval dining table, but perfectly usable. The idea is to have another table…

Played an interesting game last night – Risk Legacy. It is a version of Risk, but one where the board, factions and rules change from game to game, based on what happened in previous games. I haven’t come across anything like it before – a…

Had 4 of my board gaming buddies around today for an all day session of Android. It’s a wonderful but complex game, set in a “Blade Runner” type world. I was providing lunch, but I wanted something that I could prepare in advance, and require…

Last Saturday, I was due to host my gaming group on an all day + BBQ gaming day. However, I had to postpone it a week, due to my being ill the previous week – I knew if I made it to the Gadget show…

Last week I popped in to see my friends Robert and Janet, as I was working in their area. We had a very pleasant evening, during which we played Tobago. It’s a delightful game, where the players collaborate in adding clues to up to 4…

I played an interesting game on Saturday, called Android. The game is based in a futuristic world, with distinctly cyberpunk overtones. I felt we should be playing it while listening to the theme from Bladerunner. It involves a murder, and the players are supposed to…
