I had Mystery Express, we played it twice at LoB but it went a bit flat both times. I have Age of Industry, Fresco (+ Expansion) and Vonhos

Fresco has shown up a few times: it seemed to get a fairly negative response, although it has a few defenders (JohnB?). I wasn't crazy about it but thought it was fine. Anyway, you should be able to get a game going. I've got an interest in Mystery Express, Nuns on the Run & Powergrid: Factory Manager as well.

I've played nuns on the run, and while its ok to play, it seems that almost always, someone will make a mistake unless everyone is experienced, and thus the poor matron nuns get cheated out of a possible victory, which only gets found out at the end of the game.

Oh right, so all the input so far is that they are not being played because they suck a bit :D Good to know.

I have Fresco (in my opinion very good but you need to add a brace or more of the expansion modules otherwise it is like playing with training wheels) Mystery Express - Not a bad deduction game but would question whether the environment at LOB is a good fit (based on only a couple of visits so may be insufficient data) but there are parts of the game which could be limited by poor visibility/space - most notably displaying the time cards - with the game as a whole I would rather play Mystery at the Abbey for a similar experience but both have merits I also have Factory Manager - a big brain burner this one and I am happy to bring along next time I am in town - the bad news is that may not be for a few weeks as current client has killer hours and is at least an hour from the venue - hopefully next gig will be back in the city I would like a game of age of industry - one of Mr Wallace's creations I have yet to play - with my still sealed copy of London waiting for father's day this could scratch an itch

Oh ok great. Looks like I'm going to go regularly to the Sunday ones and as often as I can to the Tuesday one. And I tend to show up early. Probably not Wednesdays as the bus route to Red Herrings is a bit messy at the moment so I'll spend Wednesdays keeping in touch with some others.

Ok, Age of Industry out of the way. Can you do strikethrough formatting on these boards?
