Last night was games night and we played a couple of games, first off was our first play of New World, the latest Carcassonne incarnation.
Between us we have all the previous editions and it is always interesting to see how the new versions vary and how they stand up against previous ones!
The game does have some new twists, with tile laying generally moving in one direction across table, rather than being totally at the players discretion. The new mechanics all seem to work well and drive the making it possibly more competitive that previous games, good fun and well worth a try.
Secondly I got out my copy of Mensa Connections (also know as Ingenius). This is an excellent, abstract dominos style game and was great fun without too much brain hurting going on!
