Last Thursday's gaming

There were three tables' worth of gamers on Thursday, spread throughout the pub, serenaded by the ukulele group that's established itself in the far end. I didn't get to see what other people were playing, so here's what I did:

I took part in a four player game of Alien Frontiers, in which dice represent your spaceships, you build your fleet by acquiring more dice, and use them to colonise a planet. It seems to have potential, but there's considerable downtime as each player considers their options.

I then moved to another table for a quick came of Nile -- the "deluxor edition". It's a card game of planting and harvest in the presence of flood, locusts and pesky opponents. Very enjoyable, although I suspect victory is more in the hand of The Fates than in strategy.
