A bit late posting... But over the Christmas period I was showing my family how to play the Pyramid games, including:

Martian Coasters

Launch Pad 23

Pink Hijinks

Zark City

World War 5




Martian Chess

The favourites were Martian Coasters, IceDice, and Treehouse, and the least favourite was Martian Chess. People really enjoyed IceDice, with many people being caught out to shouts of "go…

Chrononauts Demo

We've been taking along fun, quick (ish!) games to our regular Magic the Gathering play group, at Fanboy 3 in Manchester, so this week I decided to take along Chrononauts.

It didn't take too long show the group how to play the game, and everyone picked it up really quickly, and the game lasted well over an hour! People enjoyed the strategy, and the stories on the cards (which we read out when we won). 

There's a plan do play Uberchrononauts next time, as I now…

Fluxx Demo

As I play Magic the Gathering with a regular play group at our local game store Fanboy 3 in Manchester, I decided to introduce them to some simpler, quicker games that we can play when we need a break from Magic.

After a couple of longer boardgames, everyone wanted something without a lot of rules to learn, so I broke out the Choose One.

A group of 7 of us played for over 2 hours (with 4 observers at one point), and much laughter was had! We had to skip a few cards, as some of the cards were felt to be a…

Gallifrey One -A great surprise for the 25th year!

February 14-16, 2014 at LAX Marriott in Los Angeles saw in the 25th annual convention of Gallifrey One, celebrating the last 50 years of all things Dr. Who. Of COURSE there were at least a couple of different Fluxx games in play throughout the weekend, except for when my Monty Python version went to be signed by Andy Looney. The best surprise EVER was when Kristin and Andy walked into the game room I was running on Saturday night and introduced Loonacy, a small travel Fluxx and had congoers…
