Record-tying and punctual attendance meant that we had four tables going most of the night. I had to get a photo of this epic game of Seven Wonders:
Seven Wonders saw everyone trying different strategies, but at the end only 7 points separated first place from last place.
Because of the success of Bang! we’ve purchased Ultimate Werewolf, which was played at the last GNOIF, and Avalon – Resistance, which was played at this GNOIF. They’re all excellent party games because they’re relatively quick, engage a lot of players, and are very interactive.
Fortunately we’ve hosted enough game nights that people are fairly familiar with many of the games. 20 cats is too many to herd.
Thanks to everyone who played!
