On my table we played a couple of simpler games as Liam had indicated he was fairly new to boardgames. The first was Thurn & Taxis, which hasn't been played on Wednesday for sometime, although we did play at the last Saturday session. Liam seemed to pick this up well, but was caught out by the number of houses he had left at the end of the game. San Juan was a fight between my early Harbour and James's Chapel and demonstrates why I'm, not fond of the Chapel because it can compromise your ability to build unless you're constantly over the hand limit, whereas the Harbour constantly builds up points throughout the game every time you trade without losing any cards from your hand.
Finally Scott had another prototype in play, The Kingdom of Kiralysag, the name is Hungarian which I suppose is unsurprising. I can't make any comments other than to note that the game did not come to a conclusion and there was much discussion going on at the end of the game.
