Saturday 24th May: Firefly goes Pirate   Leave a comment

We played the Firefly pirate expansion with the Pirate PvP quest.  Phil took an early lead by picking on Andy to grab Goal tokens but not as much money as he needed.  Bruce and Darryl carefully built up their forces, biding their time.  Mike then picked on Phil and stole his hard won tokens to claim Victory.

Not sure about the Pirate expansion.  Certainly this scenario was all about being mean which is kind of hard in a building game.  It feels like kicking down people’s sand castles.  Perhaps a different scenario will make it less of a problem.

Saturday 10th May: Lords of Waterdeep, Various   Leave a comment

Mike, Phil, Bruce, Andy and James the Younger.
We played Phil’s Waterdeep game with the Undermountain expansion. Phil had been practicing on his ipad but only narrowly avoided coming in last place. James beat Bruce in a winning tie to claim Victory. Well done.

We also played sharks and swimmers game called Get Bit which Phil won and a Tides and Sheep game and finally a game of Bluff both of which Mike won.
