Saturday 1st October: Spectre: and then Mermaid and the Hare   Leave a comment

First up was Spectre. We chose to play without the Traitor. Phil managed to grab and hold onto an early lead.

Second was an intriguing game of Intrigue and War in the time of Mary Queen of Scots. Phil managed to be the last one to be in control Mary in Edinburgh whilst still holding a viable army. This was a fun game with 2 pages of rules and simple printed counters and cards. Does not even have a BGG entry but it does capture the feel of that period of history in Scotland. Some gaps in the rules of course and difficult to reach an end so we carried on until all sides were exhausted. Recommended if you ever get a chance to play but probably won’t play it again!
