My Favourite Gaming Themes

Another #BlogMas 2019 blog, another list of stuff.
This time it’s my favourite themes in games
Here goes:

5. Zombies

This might be higher if I get to play more zombie games, but they’re a hit with me so far.

4. Fantasy

If nothing else, fantasy games are usually really quite stunning to look at. Good thing they’re great to play too.

3. Cthulhu

The great old ones must be appeased or they’ll come and take all our meeples away.

2. Dinosaurs

Slap a dinosaur on it, I’m game for a game.
1 Space
Cosmic Encounter
This is the clear winner. Actually, it’s almost impossible for me to resist a space game.

Games Night 25th April 2017

A very warm welcome to BD who found us on the internet. We hope you had a great time.
In the tradition of all newcomers, BD was miles earlier than anyone else (i.e. on time) and so we had a quick game of

MC uncharacteristically rolled some great dice and got to the grand score of 13 in only a few turns.
BD made it to 3 and then went for broke, did an amazing run to 11 but had to bow out what with all the shotgun blasts to the face.


had been the most voted for so out it came. Thankfully PH did turn up before we started.
Having been long enough since we last played this, we were once again bamboozled by those bloody rules. Got there in the end.

PH triggered the end and the final scores came to:
BD (Green): 21
MC (Red): 28
PH (Nearly Green AKA Blue): 28

Keeping to a theme we then played

Dice were rolled, ships were flown, planets were colonised, dice were re-rolled.

Final scores:
BD (Yellow): 18
MC (Black): 23
PH (Green): 26
Well done PH!

With a few minutes left we played

Round one saw BD with both his house-mates still standing.
Round two saw BD with only one single house-mate still standing.
Round three saw BD score shockingly badly with the last house-mate to leave the house.

Final scores:
BD: 29
MC: 21
PH: 26
Hooray for BD, what a sterling finish!

Games Night 16th March 2017

Just three of us this week.
Started off with newly acquired:

Dice were rolled, tiny wooden pieces were moved about. Cards were acquired.

MC (black) ended with 17 points
PH (green) ended with 26 points
SC (red) ended with 15 points

Next up was another new game:

Unfortunately, the helpless humans were very, very trigger happy with their shotguns and it took a while for the zombies to eat any brains.

Eventually the game did end with
MC with 10 brains
PH with 15 brains
Sc with 12 brains

Finally madness and despair came along with:

Being burned alive turned out to be an affliction that was not only completely curable, but an easily and repeatedly transferable ending.
In tradition of the evening PH triggered the end-game event this time by killing off his entire family.

Final score:
Mc (1 dead but has story card allowing him to count still living relatives): 145
PH (all dead): 145
SC (2 dead) 30
Well done PH for being 1st at everything.
