  • Anyone interested in going to this event at Reading University at the end of the month. Could make it a club outing on Sat or Sunday if a few of us want to go? http://www.gencon.com/2008/corporate/

  • Its interesting you make this suggestion. I have recently gone through the rules of a game I picked up a while ago called Blood Feud in New York which is a mafia domination game for six players who are all bosses of a family. The snag with it as individuals is its a player elimination game so someone will end up watching for half the game unless you invent a house rule. Playing as...

  • Dave, Bob and I played the new edition of Talisman at the games fair in Tring last November. It was exactly the same as the previous version as far as I could see except for artistic design of the board and some of the bits and pieces. Fun game but too luck driven even for me.

  • I would like to try, if I ever get round to reading the rules, Twilight Struggle, Blood Feud in New York and also the WWII games Axis & Allies/Tide of Iron/Combat Commander. I played Diplomacy for about 2 hours on Christmas Day one year when I was about 12 but we stopped for dinner and I never had the chance to play it again. Always the problem with board games unless you play in a...

  • We should not take the suggestions for worst game too seriously, they will probably reveal more about our tastes in gaming than the games themselves. I doubt there's any game all the members dislike. Anyway for me: Containers - too much like hard work doing all those computations about prices and profits and victory points. I'm a qualified accountant I should like this but it does...

  • Funny that, Bob finally finds a game he wins every time and then he wants to set up a league table for it. No seriously I think its a good idea, I had once thought of suggesting we record the results of the games at each session and devise some sort of rating system along the lines you've suggested, but then thought it would be too complicated and would be taking it too seriously...

  • Are you going to get this game Neil? Was George going to get it? I would be happy to buy it for club play, as it takes 4 players. I enjoy playing online PC arcade WW2 games (mods of Battlefield 1942, Call of Duty etc) but have never played a WW2 board game so I'd be interested to see what its like.

  • Did you play Apocalypse with two targets last week and if so was it better than the "normal" game? Andrew
