Saturday 23 December: Gloomhaven   Leave a comment

Sadly no Mike or Alex this week. However Bruce, Darryl and Phil managed to get together to introduce Bruce to the wonders of Gloomhaven. He soon had it sorted out taking on the Scoundrel and joining Phil Spellweaver and Darryl Mindthief on a side quest. Slightly out of sync with the campaign as it turned out they hired the scoundrel to help them loot some chests containing bite root from the vibrant grotto in order to supply an enchanter back in Gloomhaven in return for some valuable scrying . Any way it was lots of fun and with the Spellweaver on the verge of exhaustion with Mindthief close behind they managed to loot the final chest having dealt reasonably well with the monsters. The Spellweaver having chosen some heals had less attack power but was able to keep the scoundrel in the front line. Was interesting to see how well it scales for three. Another great game which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Wednesday 20 December pandemic legacy game two   Leave a comment

Another game of the second game of pandemic legacy. Dispatcher, quarantine specialist, medic and scientist. We played two games. Quick too. I think February and March. First game was okay but a bit of a shock when you know who appeared. Then in the second game they took over a lot of black and spilled over into blue which we had chosen to make easier to treat so somewhat frustrating there. A tense game and with a big explosion in red it looked to be all over but eradicating yellow on medics turn and with all three cured it was all over with a victory. Interestingly no love from this team for the ops guy and the military buildings yet. Worse to come though!
