Yes, I managed to find more geeks like me!!!! And yes, we had a great day playing what we like, board games!!! :D
We played a classic and much awarded game Settles of Catan (http://www.catan.com/) and then a recent game base in the fantastic TV Series, BattleStar Gallatica. (http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Battlestar_Galactica:_The_Board_Game)
The Gallatica game is quite interesting because it's a cooperative game, meaning we all play against the game not against each other but there are 1,2 or 3 traitors between us. So there is a lot of intrigue and acting.
I've met Karl and Melanie in a board game event and so they have come already twice to London (they live in Woking) to play with us and our italian flat mates.
We had a hell of a great time!!! And the Humans lost....
