With the evening full of the expectancy of four players and Firefly: The Game being the most voted for, TS turned up with two unexpected plus one’s: BS and Vis. A very warm welcome to Vis and welcome back to BS.
Eventually we settled on:
by Fantasy Flight Games this time with the newly added Cosmic Storm expansion which added Space Stations and even more aliens to the mix.
BS picked the Worm and chose Red
DA went for the Wormhole and chose Purple
KV became the Tide and chose Yellow
MC played the Arcade and chose Green
TS decided on the Bulwark and chose Blue
Vis was the Converter and chose Black
MC randomly chose himself to start. Very quickly the pattern emerged of everyone allying with the offensive side and overwhelming the defender. By the fifth turn (TS) everyone (except for MC and TS) was on 4 points. TS had already survived an attack lead by V. TS’s first round against KV saw MC reach 4 points (the only player who he could ally with without giving them the game). His second round was a hazard round, which reversed the direction of turn order, leaving KV never getting a turn.
Vis helmed the attack against DA who crumbled under the overwhelming numbers.
BS, KV, MC and Vis were victorious.
Noteworthy players were:
BS who held 3 space stations at the end of the game
KS who achieved victory despite never getting a turn.
Next up we played
Only KV and MC had played this one before, so there were some interesting plays…
The final scorecard looked a bit like this:
|VPs from Conquests||15||7||14||7||-1||2|
|VPs from Coins||3||5||5||5||2||6|
|VPs from Wonder Built||0||10||10||10||10||0|
|VPs from Blue Buildings||8||17||13||17||20||6|
|VPs from Yellow Buildings||0||3||7||3||0||10|
|VPs from Purple Buildings||3||14||7||14||0||7|
|VPs from Green Buildings||2||0||0||0||9||1|
Well done KV and MC! KV double-checked the rules regarding ties and pointed out the player with the most coins broke ties. This helped him none, as MC had 17 coins to KV’s 15. Hooray for MC!
