There were 10 in attendance this week, splitting into 3 tables of 4-3-3
On one of the tables, Dave D, Rob and myself opted for a game of Deus, which turned out to be a surprisingly fast playing unusual game of Deus
We all started in positions away from each other and was able to opt for a strategy fairly quickly and unopposed
Rob opted for a coin strategy, so much so he was able to buy any resources he pleased and quickly surrounded 2 barbarian villages unchallenged and looted all the VP's located there
It appeared Dave went for a resource strategy as at one point had a huge pile of resources to hand and again was able to build anything and similarly surrounded a nearby village
I opted for a bit of everything, at one point I was worried I would be blocked but fortunately my one and only 'ship' card came out which I was able to build and subsequently on my next turn a 'military' building which allowed me to move 0-4 spaces and spread out from my location
What was surprising is that not one temple was built the entire game, I think at some point we all had the opportunity to build one but opted for something different - I have not played a game where this has happened before!!
All in all a very close game with Rob and myself sharing the win as there was no mention of a tie breaker
Next up was Priests Of Ra, this was new to me and I enjoyed it very much, I was very fortunate to pick up double Ankh's on the first 2 Epochs which saw me get the win - definitely beginners luck though I feel

Someone has dropped out of the Agricola tournament taking place this Saturday from 9.30am at the UK Games Expo. This means a ticket is likely to be available. If you are interested then please contact me at: email@example.com
