My weekend

Saturday was a day of board games.

Thanks to despotliz and coalescent talking about it on Twitter I picked up Dominion a couple of weeks ago. I've played it in the past with a meaningrequired and also with marrog and erindubitably and decided to introduce my brother's gaming group to it. It went down well, and everyone seemed to enjoy it. There was certainly plenty of swearing at bad card combos coming up, as well as extreme happiness when a plan came to fruition.

We also playtested a new game my brother is working on - with one orc chieftain apiece we headed out to see who could pillage the most human villages, towns and cities. Good starting point - it was good fun - and then plenty of discussion of how to fine-tune it.

And then we played an F1 game called Formula D which, despite not caring even slightly about racing, was exceptionally good fun. Judging what speed/gear to be in and how tightly to take corners, how much risk to take, etc. was actually very gripping. I'd happily play it again.

Sunday was spent chatting to Julie on IM and the phone, and then headign to Endiran. If you are the kind of person who likes ridiculous action sequences, massive numbers of identical robots forming themselves into giant snakes, and five minute breaks for gratuituous pop videos, then this is the movie for you. And if you're _not_ that kind of person then I pity you.
