As we look to transition from Old Town Kopitiam to new OTK, another Friday evening was well spent with the first play of ERUPTION (lava flow anyone?) and IMPERIAL being the main course. Innovation, Nightfall, 7 Wonders with Leaders, Kaigan were also seen on the tables.
2 Days, 16+ Hours, 20 gamers, close to 40 different games – GAME SIX now brings us to the finale of this awesome Retreat. The most talked about game TROYES receiving the closing ceremony honor on Table #1 while two of the MASK Trilogy were on the next two tables – TIKAL & MEXICA. Table #4 saw re-emergence of GIANTS, another popular game from last year’s Retreat. Five gamers (Teddy, Junyet, Lee Ching, Kareem & Daren) are still in with a chance to win this semi-competitive tourney; three of them are in Table #1. Find out who’s the eventual winner!
GAME FIVE moved the pace up a notch with EL CAPITAN (formerly TYCOON), FRESCO and ACQUIRE seeing play-time while THEBES & CARSON CITY graced two other tables. Can Junyet climb back into Table #1 for the next & final GAME SIX? Let’s read on to find out which four gamers shall fight for the last battle in TROYES.
GAME FOUR in the 2nd Day brought out all the Super Heroes (and Heroines) as they started with an early morning trek up the treacherous K2 while some battled pirates in JAMAICA and a few were desperately trying to SURVIVE off a sinking island? No, it’s not LOST (TV).
The Aliens have landed! And I don’t mean these guys: Although that would have been cool too. 😀 But in the form of Alien Frontiers and a whole bunch of games that arrived on our shores in BGC’s new shipment. This week also featured the appearance of the 2010 SdJ and KSdJ winners – Qwirkle and 7 Wonders. So what did we have in store for our night owls? 😛
ALIEN FRONTIERS finally here with TROYES and LETTERS FROM WHITECHAPEL. Find out what else came with our July New Arrivals.
