Alhambra with many references from Crispin to the need for his palace to have plenty of Seraglios! Gwen, unsurprisingly, emerged victorious.
Kingdom Builder was played by Robin, Claire, Brian and I. This game again proved popular and, whilst far from being my favourite game from Essen 2012, it is growing on me due to its simplicity, speed of play, replayability and the balance of tactics to fun. Robin again won this game, although in part because I spotted a strategy that whilst I loused it up myself I had pointed it out to him. He obviously took the guidance with open arms and profited mightily from it!

My group then embarked on one of my Christmas presents Survive: Escape from Atlantis. A game that will appeal to those who like the ability to mess their fellow players up and will equally not appeal to those who dislike the more confrontational type of games. A quick explanation of the game will shed light on the reasons for these comments.
