Saturday 12th November: Dead of Winter   Leave a comment

Bruce hosted a night of post apocalyptic perils for Mikes DeaD of Winter.  Phil, Alex and Darryl joined in.  The first game finished before the second turn with a defeat for all players.  The team needed to get plenty of survivors for the VP.  So they did not hold back on playing survivors.  This would have been okay but each time a new character tried to move they rolled for exposure and got bitten.  Morale was low in the colony.  Then Phil drew the Prison guard and then tried to move safely using fuel.  However the secret event card said that if he moved a prison revolt occurred and he needed to roll 4 times or eight for exposure.  This of course caused more survivor characters to die and the team lost.  Phil wamost upset because Blue the Chimp had a flamethrower and a drone and was looking like an interesting new character.
Second game was better.  This time Alex had the chimp and turned him into a banana demanding vampiric demonic super weaponised search monkey.  He even bit Phils character and scared away bruce’s from the laboratory.

Together the team were able to get plenty of survivors especially using a secret tunnel to the grocery.  With so many mouths to feed they only had one starvation counter just in the penultimate turn.  Then quickly it was looking like the end and probably a solo win for Phil.  However DARRYL who in fact was the traitor tried to unsettle things on the final round of the final turn.  This allowed the other players to redraw their failing secret victory cards .  Alex drew one that allowed him to join in with phils victory.  But at least Mike and bruce were on the winning side.  Well done team colonists under the benign leadership of phils politician.
