Saturday 26th September: Star Wars Imperial Assault   Leave a comment

This time Darryl played the part of the Evil emperor as Alex, Mike and Phil began a new campaign to save the galaxy from tyranny.   Jedi Warrior, Stealth Fighter and Sly Smuggler took on the Imperial Storm troopers backed by their shadowy spy force in the first scenario Aftermath.  The Heroes took out the first set of sentries easily enough but then found it impossible to actually damage the reinforced terminals.  They did however open all the crates: though knowing the cards in Darrl’s hand he had already played was useless.  On the last attack of the last turn the Jedi Warrior (Mike) finally destroyed the last terminal and the Heroes somehow won!

Now they have an extended haft for the Jedi and a better blaster (DL-44) for the Sly Smuggler.  The Sniper (Alex) obtained better supplies using Xp whilst the others saved theirs for the future.  Hopefully Bruce can join later and maybe claim 1XP and 200 credits should he do so or he could use one of the characters if someone is missing that week.

The players decided that the Imperials had been doing far too well in the first campaign so that ended with an Imperial Victory.  Hopefully the Rebels can do better this time.

We then finished off with a couple of games of Cthulhu Fluxx.  I think Alex won one and Mike the other (by trumping Phil’s win with a Secret Cultist).

Thursday 24th September: C and C Napoleonics   Leave a comment

Darryl and Phil played C and C N.  Phil had a copy since launch but had never played.  Darryl was imperiously victorious the first two games.  The second was memorable for the massacre of the Portuguese in the narrow gully.  But with some advice and luck Phil managed to rescue the situation in the final game.  This time Phil was on the attack again but with the French and his Heavy Cavalry just sneaked the final flag before it was too late.  Very enjoyable days gaming indeed.
