The game looked really interesting as well as the card designs being gorgeous and I'd quite like a go at some future NoBoG (hint!)

more developments than everyone else.

|SO CUTE! LOOK AT IT!!|

|My goodness, that's a lot of dice! Note fallen-over|
Dracula-figurine, because trying to keep them
stood up was just too much effort.
|Lewis tries to serenade a swarmling.|
I don't think it's working.
|I acquired quite a lot more dice than this over|
the course of the game: you can see why it got
hard to roll them all at once!
|Once mostly cleared of dice, the pokey size of|
the 4x4 game-board is revealed.
Still, for this first game it was definitely enjoyable — perhaps could have done with some refinement to the mechanics, but we suffered no terrible frustrations. So hurrah! John won, and then only bloody won Port Royal too, continuing a winning streak he said stretched into last week! So your task for next week, NoBoGgers, is clearly to beat him at any game you can. Not that I'm bitter for coming two points behind him in Dicenstein and three in Port Royal. Shush!
