    Sure was! I have a bad habit of leaving my games there and forgetting about them

    I’ve been waiting for awkward guests since I heard about it on the dice tower. Instabacked

    I saw you then! Sorry I didn’t read this before- would have said hello proper (you were the person that said they enjoyed themselves and would return yes?) and given you a lift back to your car. I was late due to bed assembly, played Le Havre and some others I don’t even remember I was so tired. I did ask Jim if Auztralia had a loan mechanism though!

    Just FYI symbol of avarice and gold serpent ring don’t stack

    Dark Souls Remastered

    Undead Burg, between the bonfire and Taurus Demon is my favourite. It's so straightforward looking back on it now, but I was there for hours and never gave up. Least favourite: The Great Hollow. I was killed regularly by the camera there before I switched off wall saving.

    Civilization VI - Civ on the streets, Civ in the sheets

    Warning- if your trade income relies on pretty much one trading city, especially with the Great Zimbabwe, make sure it’s got a spy protecting it. I moved mine to my spaceport, and spent money upgrading troops, only to be told another country had siphoned £1900 from me! For the following turns my money steadily dropped to 0, despite a supposedly +ve income. Eventually my troops disbanded, barbarians appeared, all yields dropped massively, I sold everything I had for pennies. All other countries were denouncing me for being weak and sending troops forward when my final spaceship set off.

    Picked up Kamiko, SP: Stick of Truth & some pinball tables. Couldn’t decide on Minit. Then went straight back to Civ VI

    Unlike other ranged attacks you click on the attack first, then the enemy.

    Last thing regarding Civ VI- it's £37 on the Russian e-shop. Not a massive saving, but that'l get you the Nubia dlc for free effectively

    The screen is fine, you can zoom in and out quickly and easily, not that I've felt the need to yet. Compared to mouse and keyboard there have only been a few instances which I've found worse- when my apostles have 2 upgrades (martyr +1) I can't see an easy way of checking the second promotion. I have tapped on another unit to select them, only to move my current unit there instead. There's no quick 'skip a unit's turn' like the space bar, you have to manually select it, which isn't massive, but I'd like it. However, this is all with the caveat I haven't looked into changing controls yet. Otherwise it runs just as well as on the laptop, better actually, seeing as how I have to turn off animations to get it playing on mine. edit- a lot of the controls are sensible or clearly signposted, but I'd advise to press '-' upon beginning, unless you already know what every symbol means.

    Just to warn you, Civ VI on the switch is Civ VI on the switch. I’m concerned about the lack of sleep and missed train stops which will now occur.

    Finish Dark Souls. Think I can now start to tackle the backlog. Civ VI released and pinball boards go on sale. FFS
