Quick update tonight because I am beyond tired.
Women in Toys meeting this morning was interesting but very sparsely attneded. I think it is worth following up for information about any Australian groups (including, I think, a WiT chapter).
Next was a brief chat with Peter Eggert at Eggertspiele, followed by a longer chat with Guido Teuber from Mayfair. Very successful and interesting.
Meanwhile, Fraser played Cable Car and Montego Bay with Ann, Ageeth, Martin and the girls.
A drink run took longer than expected but should be worthwhile.
We played Hansa Teutonica but I had to stop playing to take a child to the toilet. I am getting sick of being at the mercy of 3 people’s bladders instead of just my own.
I think it was a bit late in the day for me to be trying the game. I’d like to try it again, but it felt surprisingly like I was placing arbitrary bits of coloured wood on a board. I was definitely too tired to try it, though.
Later, we tried Koplopers & Dwarsliggers. This is a dutch game and is not bad at all. Our game was interrupted by one of my daughters’ bladders. Again.
Last try of the day was Such a Thing, from Valley Games. This seemed pretty funny at the booth but really came into its element back in our room when we were playing something quick before bed.
Here’s the set of descriptions we came up with during our session.
