A very warm welcome to TS and BS this week.
Started to play a quick game of Star Realms by White Wizard Games with DA while we waited for the others to turn up.
They turned up so we didn’t finish but DA was clearly going to win.
This week saw us play a 5-player games of Fantasy Flight Games’ most excellent
BS – The Overmind
DA – Arturus Mengsk
MC – Tassadar
PH – Jim Raynorr
TS – Aldaris
The first round saw each faction happily settle on a neighbouring planet uncontested. The next two turns were uneventful as the players’ built up their forces. The Overmind garnering the most points at 4 points a turn and Tassadar a close second with 3. TS managed all of 1 point a turn. Hostilities started up between the two Terran factions with Raynor invading Mengsk’s world and then being repelled. Aldaris and Tassadar clashed with the Overmind on a world of depleted resources. Both Protoss factions maintained their foothold on The Overmind’s planet but were unsuccessful to invade further.
At the game’s conclusion:
Tassadar had 18 points
The Overmind had 16 points
Both Terrans had 12 points
Aldaris score has been repressed for being so small.
However, being at the third phase:
Both Terrans had achieve their special victory conditions, but it was James Raynor who was able to break the tie by having more resources.
Well done PH!
I’m quite impressed we completed a 5-player game in under 3 hours. I still maintain this is up to 30 minutes a player, with a quicker game when all the players know what they’re doing.
