A Merry, Merry Christmas to you all.

Please take the time to boast or lament about the games you or your loved ones got you this festive period.

Hopefully you'll get them played in the New Year.

Although it seems that a disturbing amount of last year's festive gifts never did get played? Lanarkshire Gamers: Christmas 2018

Get Gaming Gang!!

This was my BGG Secret Santa gift this year.

It had been on my wish-list for ages and having had a few games with Jamie and Julian Brennan I was delighted to get my own copy.

But, for those who know the game better that I do, is the Ta Seti expansion essential?

Part of GMT's Fast Action Battle system (or fiddly amount of bookkeeping system). A block game at heart, I'm looking forward to learning this.

More of a present to myself, but I couldn't resist when I noticed the hefty discount on Zatu Games. Now I just need to find a willing group!

A lovely unexpected gift from my dad. Apparently it's also known as the Viking Game and the version I received has an excellent cloth board and quality wooden pieces. I'll need to look up the rules though as these were not included!

We really like to play Above & Below with my wife and wanted to try Near & Far (with Amber Mine extension). Adding the campaign & "rpg" twist to it along with a co-op mode. Can't wait to try it!
