A casual conversation by Sarah-Lee with some of her friends produced the radical revelation: they played games. Some more than others, but they played. And so, this week’s gaming session featured newcomers Erez, Omri and Yoni. Sarah-Lee, Laurie, Susan, Yehuda and I made the numbers up to eight.
Yehuda, Laurie, Erez and Yoni played Lords of Waterdeep. Yehuda was the only one who knew it, and he did his usual excellent job of explaining the rules. From what I saw from the sidelines, it looked interesting and enjoyable, and the players were all focused on the task at hand.
I think it was Erez who said he thought it had not very much to do with Dungeons and Dragons (which is what it says on the box front) but that made no difference. It was just a good game. Yehuda won, but there were smiles all round at the end.
Omri, Susan, Sarah-Lee and I played Dominion first. Omri picked it up quite easily, but none of us could match Susan’s play and she won, again. Susan has an amazing winning record at this game. We really must hunt down more of the expansions.
Next the same four played Through the Desert. Again, no problem for Omri. This time I won, though just by a couple of points ahead of Sarah-Lee.
Susan dropped out and Omri, Sarah-Lee and I played R-Eco. Again, Omri did well, In fact, so well that he won!
Thus ended another great night’s gaming. Thanks to all who came.
