Games Night 14th September 2017

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.

Games Night 22nd June 2017

For the first time in ages we had the astronomical heights of four players.

by Fantasy Flight Games was the game of the night.
However DA was bang on time so while waiting for the others we had a quick game of DogEared Games’

Typically we had just got going when everyone turned up, but we played on regardless finishing with both Staks being destroyed.

On to the main event:
DA was reborn as the Queen of Blades
KV became cool and calculating as Tassadar
MC had deep thoughts as the Overmind
PH looked to gain every advantage as Arcturus Mengsk
After crafting the Kropulu sector into the shape of a Klingon Warbird the four factions quickly got into the business of building and expanding.

Conflict soon took the form of Tassadar and Kerrigan systematically hammering the Overmind into oblivion. At least MC got to play to see Phase II.

Mengsk quietly got on with building up his forces but forgot the very significant matter of transportation. However, he was sitting on a goldmine of points.

Tassadar quickly established his Special Victory condition and resolutely waited for Phase III. With Mengsk’s quick accumulation of points, Kerrigan and Tassadar formed an uneasy alliance to wrest some of the points away from him.
Phase III then came into being drawing the game to a close.
Final scores:
DA: 14 and with Special Victory
KV: 3
MC: 1 (eliminated)
PH: 13
Well done DA.
