We had a games evening, just because that’s why.
A big hello to DA who joined us from all the way across the road having found out about us on the TableTop Gaming website. Thanks guys!
KV brought round Alderac’s deck-building game:
so we played that.
DA went into the Fertile Soil business in a big way.
KV showed how pushing your luck can actually work.
MC early on acquired a 3x VP field that generated a nice tidy pile of VPs during the game but found that pushing his luck was always a disaster.
DA joined with MC in the acquisition of the VP tokens with KV getting in there at the last minute and taking the last ones. Being the 3rd play of the round, the game ended there and then without any chance for DA or MC to try to catch up.
The final scores:
Well done KV winning the game you brought with you.
A fun variation to the deck-building game. MC was too engrossed to take a piccy of it though.
Next up DA chose Gamelyn Games’
The usual dice rolling stuff happened. KV was often thwarted at his attempts to colonise a planet.
MC was the first to get 21+ points. Like with the previous game, MC happened to be the 3rd play of the round so there endeth the game.
DA (Red): 16
KV (Green): 18
MC (Black): 25
Huzzahs to MC.
To finish up, we played two rounds of
by Calliope Games
After bending the rules a little to allow DA the chance to move the dragon in his path (they did like to follow him), MC rolled a 2 and took himself out with a dragon. DA soon fell foul of a dragon making KV the winner of round 1.
Round 2 saw MC rolling a 2 and taking himself out with a dragon…again. DA and KV then played on for a good while leading to this pivotal moment:
KV banked on DA not having a tile that would get him out of that situation but DA did and KV disappeared off the edge of the board.
Yay! DA won something!
