It’s all over until next year when we do it again. For those who attended Winter Retreat, we hope you had a great time gaming. Please get in touch with the club committee with any comments you have, positive or negative.
A gaming week-end hardly seems like time enough. Lots of games were being played, lots of Game of Games slips filled out. Winter Retreat is a great time to discover a new board game to try out. This year three titles stood out; Kingsburg, a strategy game that was rarely unused in the time we were there. Kingdom Builder, and interesting strategy game based around map control. Also Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mount Skullzfyre captured imagination with its fast, ruthless and wacky gameplay.
My favourite of the week-end was undoubtedly Finska, a strategy peg and skittles game. This game managed to do what even natural disasters cannot – get large groups of gamers congregating outside! Both tactical and fun, this game is great for gamers of all ages.
I saw numerous cameras around the hall, so expect so more Winter Retreat reports to hit the website soon!
