We managed three games with another run out of Hick Hack to start (a game where the foxes eat the farm birds trying to eat the best feed – it’s silly but great fun) , this was won by Ben shortly after saying how badly he was doing!
Dominion which was unfortunately hindered on this occasion by an incorrect interpretation of the rules – my fault. However it was a pleasant surprise that Gwen was enthusiastic about this game and thought that it compared well with Fresco, a game I thought she would prefer. Somewhere along the way we managed to squeeze in some chocolate panatone as the munchies for this evening, sorry no photo’s.
undesirable given the object of the game. This inevitably leads to much hilarity, as players try to find creative ways of using components that will impede the next player’s attempt to extend the tower further (the variant of the game we were playing meant you gained a point if the next player knocked over the tower). I will leave the pictures to give a sense of the tension and fun this game offers.
|Why would you try and put an egg on top of a pinnacle?!!!|
|Precision is called for as another absurd object is placed on an amazing tower|
|Crispin looks on in amazment at the tower|
|I struggle to place another object where the base is a pyramid - a silly game!!!|
|Yet more objects placed on a pyramid|
|Alex has nearly done it but laughter doesn't help with a steady hand|
|You have got to be kidding, particularly as it's my go next!!!!!!|
