New Years Eve games   Leave a comment

First off labyrinth with Link and Izzy. Link won! Open card variant.

Next up Mysteries of Old Peking.

Link guessed wrong and Izzy and me both knew the answer but she pipped us to the post and won !

Interspersed with these board games it was time for Hero Kids with Link. Brave Chris assisted by Kevin the Hunter found themselves in the midst of the village when it was struck by a maelstrom of fire. Kevin rescued a girl using his trusty rope, they then healed injured villagers giving up their healing potion. Finally Chris tried to smash through the door to the bell tower to raise the alarm and Kevin tried to strike the bell with arrows but both failed. Finally Kevin picked his way through the burning debris and rang the bell calling for aid.

Whilst the villagers struggled with the magic fires our heroes saved the apothecary shop from some thieving bandits. Finally they discovered the fire starter and persuaded her to put out the fires. True to their word they kept the girl’s identity secret. She may join them on a future adventure.

Well done Link!

Bruce played One Ring RPG. We played the starting adventure and Link joined us in the afternoon. It was good. The conspiratorial hobbits made it through in the end.
