1. Fog of Love – 2
2. X-Wing Second Edition – 4
3. Revolution! – 1

Introduced a complete noob to X-Wing last night with a simple game of 1 X-Wing v 2 TIEs. Over two hours later he finally beat the more experienced player, and now seems hooked!

Another four netrunners.

New corporation deck is ok, runner deck shit.

4. Love Letter — 1

A 2+ player card game of deduction and risk-taking. Each character card has a points value and a special ability, and you need to use them in order to finish the token with the highest points value. Simple to learn but really fun. I’ve only played it with two but I imagine it’s better with more (title).

Sal and I played this a couple of times in the Short game length and felt it was just getting going as the game ended, so when Gaz and Jem came to visit we thought we’d up it to the Medium length. This was a mistake. Two extra (new) players plus the extended game length meant it took far too long. But we learnt something I suppose.

Card game where you need to gain one card from each of five different categories by challenging a random opponent around the table to a particular challenge like skill, luck, courage, etc. It didn’t really grab us, unfortunately.

4. Love Letter — 1
5. Dinosaur Island – 1
6. Game Off – 1
7. Dixit – 1

In this the first player chooses a card from his hand (all pictures) and tells a short story in a couple of sentences. The other players have to guess what they think it is. Everyone else then chooses a card from their hand that could also feasibly be mistaken for this story.

The clever part is that you don’t get any points if no one guesses right, but you don’t get any if everyone guesses correctly either, so you need to make it reference the card somehow, without being too obvious.

It’s quite short too so doesn’t outstay its welcome.

1) Forbidden Island - 3
2) Fluxx - 2
3) Trivial Pursuit (Harry Potter Edition) - 3
4) Codenames Duet - 3
5) Dixit - 3

Another game of Dixit, this time with actual sentences rather than one or two word setups - much more fun this way, it seems.

Love Letter's a great game, one of our mainstays - especially with the kids, although Olly seems to be much better at the deductive reasoning side of it than Izzy.

8. Love Letter - 1

I played the Baron to trade hands, received a guard in return, played it, then immediately forgot what I'd given the other player. It was the Princess.

9. Insider - 2 :D :D

What happens when 'Mafia' meets '20 Questions' and they love each other very much. One player is the secret "Insider" and unbeknownst to anyone else also knows what the mystery word is. He has to help the other players get towards the answer, but must try to avoid being detected.

Mrs Fop can always be depended upon to make a similar move and forget entirely what she gave away. (Though you trade with a Prince I think).
