Running Rings Around – Thur

Thur night was a night of stealth and deception.  First up we played something that’s been on my shelf for a long time but never dusted off Lord of the Rings – The Confrontation I’ve never been a massive fan of Reiner Kniza’s LOTR games, they’re fine but the whole happy happy co-op thing justContinue reading “Running Rings Around – Thur”

I was THIS close to winning Dracula, damn those meddling kids (and by kids I mean a bunch of old blokes and one young fella) We didn’t get to game last week so it was great to get back in the saddle, meet some good* friends* and try out a few new games.  First up was aContinue reading “Back to Thur – Being a Drax Report”

Spartacus a big favourite of the group (and more importantly me) was supercharged on Thur with the addition of the first expansion for it “The Serpents and the Wolf” http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/134466/spartacus-the-serpents-and-the-wolf-expansion-set The group had been watching this with anticipation so when it was released we pounced on it like a starving cat in a lifeboat.  firstContinue reading “My Thur Rages on – Being a Drax Report”
