Next week's meeting, "The Unseen", got me thinking about games I own which I haven't seen played at London On Board yet. I don't make it to every meeting, so I'm sure some of these have been played. Perhaps you can help whittle the list down by letting me know which ones have been played. Then, if there's particular demand for any game I can bring it along. None of my games have been played at LoB (it's tricky to find space to bring them down from Sheffield), so it's about time I contributed! Here's the list, in order of their BGG rank. I've put my favourites in bold. 11. El Grande 21. The Princes of Florence 29. Shogun 30. Die Macher 75. Amun-Re 87. Tikal 121. Carson City 140. Thebes 142. Reef Encounter 143. Princes of the Renaissance 146. Web of Power 149. La Citta 150. Maharaja 152. Torres 169. Louis XIV 171. Hollywood Blockbuster 180. San Marco 186. Medici 189. Antike 208. Attika 219. Domaine 245. The Sceptre of Zavandor 246. Arkadia 258. Liberte 260. In the Shadow of the Emperor 264. Hansa 277. Mykerinos 279. Medina 282. Ys 299. Leonardo da Vinci 302. Ricochet Robots 326. Witch's Brew 328. Himalaya 329. Factory Fun 330. Expedition Pyramide/Ubongo 343. Can't Stop 353. Peloponnes 362. Hermagor 368. Gulo Gulo 370. Edel, Stein & Reich 382. Elfenland 383. The Princes of Machu Picchu 402.

I have and really like Himalaya, too, and I have brought and played it a couple of times. I would like to try Witch's Brew and Royal Palace if you bring them - as well as Graenaland for the upcoming Czech / Vlaada themed night maybe.

I'll bring Witch's Brew and Edel, Stein & Reich, as they're both small (although I suppose they're fairly similar games too) and I'll see what else will fit in my bag. Would like to give Antiquity a go one day, since I've heard such good things about it. That's another epic, isn't it?
Posted 2/20/11 6:33 PM
We did it 4 pl starting at 6:30 ending at 10 incl some rules explanation so moderately epic but not too bad.
Posted 2/21/11 11:13 AM
i have played Way out West at London on Board (about 3 years ago i think with Scott ,Steph and ?)
Posted 2/22/11 8:03 AM
I've played Shogun, Reef Encounter, Carson City, and seen Antike played.
