Red planet rocky hill   Leave a comment

Stage 1. The hill has been carved from foam and affixed to a foam board base . Then woodland scenic plaster of Paris strips added and when dry covered in sand on pva glue.

A hill for our grim dark sci fi games .

Tainted Grail

Back to board games again .

Our first meet up since lockdown . We played Tainted Grail. We had not played before but went in full for the first scenario using 4 players . Phil hosted. Mike, Michael and Bruce joined in. The first scenario is quite a gentle start so you can learn the rules and especially the card play for encounters so we focused on those with the three player settings. Went well and the app was a nice addition with the voice actors. Hopefully we can play again some time and be stricter on our second play through .

Then we played a great new dice game that Mike brought along which Michael won .

Was great to see everyone again!
