Christmas Games Night

Andy, Phil, Izzy, Mike and Bruce played some games.

We started with the Hobbit Card Game (a trick taking game).  Evil Mike and Phil won the first game.  Good Mike, Andy and Bruce the second.

Then we played a game of the French Revolution; Guillotine where Noble Cards were beheaded in bloody revenge.  Andy won that.

Next up were two games of horse racing Giro Galoppo.  Izzy and Andy won a race each and Phil came last twice.

Then we played Bruce’s Nightmare Course in Snow Tails.  Phil started last after his poor showing in racing and had a dreadful start finding his way blocked, suffering damage then careering out of control, veering to the left of the track on a right hand bend.  Izzy raced off first leaving everyone behind and led the race for most of the game with  Bruce and Andy closely following.  Mike was doing well until he ran into a spot of bother (a cliff). This allowed Phil who had actually brought his sled to a full stop earlier to sneak by him. So Izzy won, then Bruce followed by Andy.  Phil was slightly catching up at the end and Mike decided to walk and carry the remains of his sled home.

Finally a quick game of Bluff in which Phil was somehow victorious, probably thanks to a dram of Auchentoshan Whisky.

So all in all a fun set of games played for Christmas.
