Shrewsbury Boardgames Club session reporting
19/06/2016 12:53 PM
In advance of my house move out of the area and the fact that, from July, my ability to host / attend the club is likely to be even more limited, I thought it was time to transfer how we record the games we play to BGG. This will allow anyone (n ...


Three new games
19/06/2016 12:30 PM
This week, I got hold of three new games. The Last Spike is one I’ve been interested in for a while due to comments from geek buddies, Doug Adams and Mark Johnson. It looks like an interesting take on Acquire with a railway building theme ...


Brief Expo-sure
06/06/2016 09:53 AM
I managed to get to the UK Games Expo for a few hours on Saturday morning. Pity it couldn’t have been longer but I had other stuff that needed doing in the afternoon. Arriving just before 9.30, having parked in the train station car park, ...


May 2016 roundup
01/06/2016 02:02 PM

26/04/2016 02:03 PM
Having challenged myself in 2015 to reduce my collection by 365 games, which was about a third of my total collection and succeeded in selling over 400, this year I’m going to see if I can get my collection down to below 400 games, which m ...


Two new card games
21/04/2016 09:02 PM
  I arrived home tonight to find a delivery from Philibert had arrived. The overly large box contained two small card games that I’ve been itching to get hold of. Arboretum is a clever puzzle-like card game, the English Z-Man version ...


March 2016 roundup
02/04/2016 05:10 PM
In March, I managed to play 15 games of 12 different titles, 8 of which were new to me. The new games were: TIME Stories: A Prophecy of Dragons – The third scenario was better than the second and adds a second level to the exploration. Pre ...
