Saturday 17th September: Fortune and Glory plus X-COM   Leave a comment

Michael, Mike, Phil and Alex went to Bruce’s to play F and G followed by X COM-two co-operative games.

Fortune and Glory

The Nazi’s had a good start and were rapidly moving up the VP chart.  Michael’s Lord and Alex’s driver started an adventure in W Europe and were soon joined by Phil’s Scientist to complete the quest.  Lord Dudley then went shopping in Paris.  Meanwhile Mike got beaten up in a bar in S Africa whilst the Nazi’s escaped with Thor’s hammer.  Bruce crashed into a mountain just outside LA.

Next Bruce and Mike tried to complete the quest outside LA but were pipped at the post by the same female villain evil Nazi after being chased by a Jeti.  Phil and Alex travelled to America too and spent a long long time negotiating a temple complex until the Zeppelin brought even more evil Nazi’s to once again thwart them and steal the artefact from under the noses whilst they were distracted by the Crimson Guard (who knocked Alex’s driver out whilst Phil escaped only to fall off a cliff).  Meanwhile Lord Dudley grabbed the Blue shield from the British Isles and sold it at auction in Moscow to great success.  Then Bruce and Mike’s stange author got delayed and badly chewed by sharks in Eastern Europe.

Nothing seemed to stop the Nazi’s who began occupying Venice and dropping solders off all over the World whilst the players struggled to make progress except Lord Dudley of course.  Finally the Nazi’s won. Well done Game.

X-COM

We played X com next.  The tutorial was challenge enough for us.  Mike’s good money management supported Bruce’s excellent squad leader tactics.  This allowed the team to survive with just South America in Panic as they took on the final challenge.  Boosted by Alex’s clever tech the final four soldiers alive took on and defeated the Final Mission assisted by Phil’s satellite support tech again from Alex.
