A very warm welcome to HG this week. Her addition to the group brought the grand total of players for tonight up to 3.
To start off with, we attempted to save the world from the sniffles, barnacles, crazy itches and death with:
by Zman Games.
With HG being very new to the gaming world, she opted for the easier game.
DA was the Dispatcher (can move other players on his turn)
HG was the Medic (can treat diseases more efficiently)
MC was the Scientist (can find the cure quicker)
The BREXIT HYSTERICS was the first to be cured, MC very quickly amassed the four cards he needed and hopped into the research station and did whatever one does in those places to turn cards into a cure. HC used her super powers to completely eradicate the BREXIT HYSTERICS, giving us a little breathing room when EPIDEMICS broke out. Meanwhile the horrific FLAMING TOENAIL DISEASE had grown considerably in north African and west Asia. This was the source of the first OUTBREAK.
All three intrepid germ busters flew into the middle east and managed to equip MC with enough black cards needed to cure it. In doing so the sale of replacement footwear dropped considerably.
By this time, the OVERWHELMING STUPIDITY had reached a critical point in South America with a potential massive chain reaction that would exhaust the yellow OVERWHELMING STUPIDITY cubes imminently, particularly after another EPIDEMIC card that moved the card marker to 3 with only five cards to be shuffled and placed back on the top. 3 of those cards were cities known to hold 3 disease cubes already. Fortunately, it was only Algiers in North Africa so, although there was an OUTBREAK, no chain reaction occurred and the sale of shoes briefly increased once again. It also happened to be where HG was hanging out with her super-cure all remedy handy. Some quick action by DA and HG brought us back from the brink regarding the yellow OVERWHELMING STUPIDITY cubes and DA was able to find the cure for the slow-spreading SLIGHTLY SORE BUT NOT VERY SORE FINGER CONDITION.
MC was all set to cure find the cure for the OVERWHELMING STUPIDITY when the final EPIDEMIC struck. It was a non-event, however and MC managed to develop the cure for the OVERWHELMING STUPIDITY that had South America in its thrall. We won. Woo.
Next up, we played two games of:
by Space Cowboys
We utilised MC’s automatic card shuffler, that was excellent at shuffling all the blue gem cards together.
MC went first to give, HG time to get to grips with the game-play. On numerous occasions she pointed out that her brain was on the brink of exploding.
DA managed to attain 15 points with the visitation of his second noble.
MC won the second round and didn’t own or hold a gem for the majority of the game.
Finally, we played two games newly acquired:
by Moonster Games.
Disaster struck as it transpired that these cards were a little taller than standard cards and wouldn’t fit in the automatic card shuffler. So we had to endure MC’s bloody awful “shuffling”.
HG dominated the Time Travellers in this game and DA quickly acquired the Yi’s Legacy token (dubbed the Super-Happy-Fun token by MC). MC stole it towards the end of the game.
At game’s end the scores were:
HG: 14 – The Winner!
MC: 10 (doubled the score of 5 thanks to the Super-Happy-Fun token)
In the second game, HG again seemed to keep getting the Time Travellers. DA once again got the Super-Happy-Fun-Token that was once again stolen, this time by HG.
At game’s end the scores were:
DA: 34 – The Winner!
HG: 14 (doubled the score of 7 thanks to the Super-Happy-Fun token)
All good stuff, that was a fun evening.
