Since my last post what have we played?  We went to Michaels to play an old favourite not tried in a long time.  Descent version one.  Was fun but we only really made it to the first giant brother .  However we were well armed so probably would have finished okay with a bit of luck.

Then we played Mike’s new History of the World in Five epochs.  Phil led from the first which is never good so paid for it in the last round.  Michael however held back and got a 68 point huge score with France following Spain immediately to win by a mile.

This week Mike, Alex, Phil and Darryl reprised their roles for another Gloomhaven adventure.  This time they were off to the Lair of the Necromancer and a level 2 adventure.  First room went too easily but good cards were squandered then the second room was a bust as the open door and then I will stun or muddle the monsters for you plan failed miserably when the night demons used the handy dark magic we created to turn invisible.  Thus the door was blocked by the tinkerer of Alex  who suffered two rounds of attacks before we could help.  Nasty.

This meant giving up on the chest and going all out for the Boss.  It looked bad at first as they crowded the door and the Boss just kept creating more elite undead but then Mike jumped into the room creating an opening and we were able to get some big hits from Darryl’s Mind thief onto the Boss plus some poison.  Then it was just a matter of time and our heroes won through.

Next we go under the city to visit the sewers.
