Co-operative games evening.

Phil, Izzy, Mike and Darryl.


First up was Forbidden Island. Our first game. Seemed fun but everyone drowned before we could get the last treasure.

Next was Lord of the Rings: Battlefields. (We started with Sauron at space 14). Seemed to be going pretty well until we reached Shelob’s Lair at which point we only drew Event tiles so went straight to Shelob’s attack before we could do a thing. Darryl raced forwards 5 spaces and Sauron advanced another 3. Then everyone was destroyed except Izzy so that was that! Nasty. We used up all our axes and star cards on the Battlefields it seemed so we really struggled on the Scenario boards. Nasty. Maybe it would actually be easier with Friends and Foes.
