Finally managed to play Louis XIV on Friday and I have to say it’s a great game with plenty to think about. You can read my session report and why you shouldn’t ask me to count beyond the number three here.
Last Friday saw us enter the world of H.P Lovcraft’s Cthulhu. Arkham Horror is Fantasy Flight’s new game and you can read the session report here.
I’ve added a few reports from recent sessions of the club to my Trickylight site. Click on the links to go straight to the reports for Palazzo and Mac Robber from the session on 15th July and Typo and Detroit Cleveland Grand Prix from 29th July.

Manila Players: Nige, Phil, Mark G, Mark K, Garry A new batch of games from Adam Spielt arrived this week, so I was keen to try a couple of them.

Mark had played it at Christmas and had enjoyed it so I was keen to see how it measured up. The game… Read more »
