Saturday 9 September: doctor who and mashup   Leave a comment

Lots of fun playing Darryl s doctor who game which Phil somehow managed to win pipping Mike to the post on the last card played! Then Mike introduced us to mashup which Darryl’s undead team won . Phil s dinosaur and ninja combo really did not work which is kind of obvious when you think about it . Alex played robots which were really cool and Mike had fun as the gnome team .

Saturday 16 September : Pandemic legacy and 6 nimmt   Leave a comment

Bruce hosted his excellent new pandemic legacy game . Mike Phil Alex Darryl and Bruce played this four player game. First round went reasonably well. Bruce’s researcher fed Phil a scientist lots of useful cards such that Norwegian blue was rapidly cured and eradicated. Mike medic and Alex generalist kept everything under control.

However obviously trying to avoid spoilers second round not so easy as the researcher was dropped and the team chose a base which they then lost . So a loss .

Next time someone else will take the upgraded scientist so hopefully victory will follow . Spookily the medic in the game shares the same birthday with the medic in our group !

The legacy game is great with lots of stickers and secret boxes and scratch cards which increase the difficulty and unveil the story as the campaign progresses. Makes me really impatient for gloomhaven which has got stuck in production and shipping but should arrive soon .

We then played 6 nimmt which Mike won of course but actually it was quite close with second player just three points behind then Darryl and Bruce had mega scores.
