Attack Wing Eddie

I’ve added Eddie from Iron Maiden into three of my favourite games.

Meet Captain Eddie, Starship Captain U.S.S. Reliant. He’s a very hard captain to kill.

The battle for Borg technology in full swing.

Eddie made it away with all the information, for a Federation victory.

Arkham Horror

I think Arkham Horror is my favourite board game of all time. Bold statement, but I think if I was left on a desert island with only Arkham Horror, I’d have enough material  to keep me busy for  awhile.

Below are a few snaps of a game from a few weeks ago. We played with: Arkham Horror, Dunwitch Horror, Lurker at the Threshold & Miskatonik Horror.

Set up, and waiting for players

Being blessed helps to close gates and kill monsters.

After a rough start of lots of monsters on the board and some narrow escapes from the Dunwitch Horror, we won.

Because of our heroes, humanity gets to survive another day.

I got clobbered in this game. But had great fun!

Two fantastically painted armies battling it out always equals a good time. And a few beers consumed too.

Thanks for the game John!

 

Saga Battle Report

A few weeks ago I headed down to Seattle to see Bolt Thrower play. The show was FANTASTIC!

While in Seattle Carmin and I visited the Green Ronin studio and we challenged Chris Pramas to a game of SAGA. Following is a brief of what happened.

We played the Feast For Crows scenario 4pts each

Turn One

Turn Two: Chris moves his Vikings forward.

Turn Four

Turn Five: Chris & Carmin have their first fight.

Turn Five

Turn Six: Shit hits the fan! Fights across the board. Carmin Kills “Fatso” my Anglo Dane Warlord. And my warriors pop “Lords of Battle” and I think “Shield Wall” , miraculously killing Carmin’s Fanatics. Chris and I also had a small battle.

Turn Six

Turn Seven: We were a few beers in and I forgot to take a photo. We were a bit pressed for time at this point. I believe the score was; me 13 pts Carmin 11pts and Chris 9pts.

Chris’s Vikings! 4pts
