Board Games

Last night, I went to a board game night I found through It was in the basement of a pub, where we had our own separate bar, with staff, and we had the whole basement to ourselves, to lay out board games on the table. It was great fun, and it was wonderful to hang out with some new people finally. I played a game called "Pandemic" with 3 guys, Martin, John, and Jason, after a woman (who's name I didn't catch) gave us a crash course on the rules. It's a very interesting game, being co-operative, rather than competitive. It's the 4 of you against a number of diseases, and you have to try to cure them before they get out of control. We played twice, and lost twice, but had loads of fun in the process. I'm really looking forward to the next one, next week. It's incredibly nice to finally have found at least one way to meet some people, though playing board games did make me feel rather homesick afterwords.
