A big welcome to JA who was rewarded for being so much earlier than anyone else by being treated to a quick game of Fluxx. He proved to be a natural and won in under ten turns.
PH soon turned up with 3 extra games and PM wasn’t that far behind him. With so many games to choose from and each one only having had a single vote each, JA was made to choose (being the new guy and all). He chose Star Munchkins, being the only game on offer he recognized.
Having not played this in quite some time, we fumbled our way through the first round seeing PM accumulating 10 levels far too quickly, though was thwarted briefly by a wandering monster courtesy of JA.
Round two saw a better level of play, though JA did end up getting killed in his second turn. MC went for the win, and was accosted by all manner of wandering monsters, buffs and other such things. These he deftly swatted aside with the various rebuffs and counter-measures he’d accumulated and went on to a well-earned win.
It was deemed that there was just enough time to fit a game of Gloom in. Turned into the longest game of Gloom we’ve ever played. The deck was very low by the game’s conclusion. JA got right into it and was downright ruthless. Inspired by this, we all followed suit. Family members were given rotten days, dispatched, reanimated, cheered right up, then put through hell again before JA played the finishing card that removed 1 family member from each family leaving MC, PH and PM with no survivors. The scores were tallied up and the result was: JA -105, PM -130, PH -140, MC -145.
