No fly's on me, well maybe a few.
Holiday gaming was a bit light but I did manage to gets the guys together for one nights gaming. First up was MOW! which has become my favorite card filler game. It's a basic game of putting numbered cards in sequence and not being caught out with no cards to play. One of the guys hadn't played it before and really enjoyed it. It can get bit vindictive as some cards allow you to change the direction of play, but its all good fun.
After this we played Endeavor another new favorite. For a 5 player game it played out different than I expected. Only 3 of the regions opened up and then only in rounds 5-6. There was not much shipping going on and more attacking than usual. I managed to score the win, but I have played it more than the others so I did have an advantage. Some of the others were stuck on low level buildings and slow population growth, next time they will have a better idea.
The only other gaming has been with the kids new Lego games. Between them they have 4 and the quality varies. The best one so far is Minatourus, its a maze navigation game that also has a Minator that can attack the players and movable wall pieces that you can use to block your opponents. There is scope to add to the maze and use additional rules, but for now its enough of a game for the kids.
