Played Catan for the first time in at least a decade last night. It pains me to say it, but the mechanics felt really clunky.

Someone hit 10 points, we said "well done", and that was that. Like going back to a favourite childhood TV programme, sometimes you just can't recreate the past.

That said, having wood and needing sheep remains as hilarious as ever.

People were talking about the Birmingham games expo over the Jubliee weekend, and after checking my social diary I booked a ticket for the Friday. Quite excited as I've never been to an expo before and it's just up the road from here.

And in "Kern looking guilty in hidden role games" news, none of the fellow Brits in Tortuga 1667 refused to believe me despite my repeated claims and actions to prove otherwise. I think I'm being persecuted.


Ironically, I played Catan for the first time in probably a decade, as I've always hated it and I actually quite liked it. There was loads of trading going on that really elevated it all - but yeah, the honest truth is it isn't great.

Really need to get back into board games. Covid and having a kid killed them for me. Soon though, soon.

I played a really funny quickfire card game over the weekend called Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza.

It's just Turbo Snap, but great fun.

That looks great fun, if likely to get very violent.

We play that quite a lot here, it’s one of the kids’ favourites.

I am terrible at the three action cards, always get the wrong one first.

Doesn’t take long before your hands and forearms are fucking wrecked.

Hello, welcome back, good to see you. All that jazz.

Yeah, I always found Catan to be not exactly a fun experience.

I went to the UK Expo a few years ago and had an excellent time...an expensive excellent time.
