Saturday 14th November: Pandemic, Thunderbirds and General Update   Leave a comment

On Saturday 14th November we played Pandemic, Thunderbirds and Hobbit Love Letter.

Darryl, Phil, Mike and Bruce played Pandemic.  I think we lost one and won one game of that thus saving the world from the plague.  I think we were okay on easy mode but when we added more Epidemic Cards we soon got overwhelmed.

Then we played Thunderbirds.  We played this last week too and it is a very good game.  We managed to save the World by doing lots of Space Missions and thwarting Hood’s evil plans.  Next time we will try a harder difficulty setting as so far we have tried the Introductory difficulty.  It took us a game or two to find our direction and in our great tradition we will doubtless lose on the harder settings now every time.

We finally played The Hobbit Card Game based on Love Letter.  We have played the batman one not so long ago.  This is a good game with lots of twists and turns.  Darryl won that.

The weeks before we have played some other good games.  We managed to get my new Dungeon Saga game from Mantic Games out.  Alex played too.  We had run the first two scenarios before so we ran the third one where the four adventurer’s meet up.  It was a close thing as the Wizard and the Barbarian were close to being defeated but the Heroes managed to break the Wards on the Final Door just in time whilst the Dwarf and the Elf kept the Undead busy.  I would like to play this one again, especially if I get time to use my 3D terrain.

We also played the Witcher Board game.  I think this was fairly good to play.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the challenge.  Alex seemed to be struggling with Dandelion but actually accumulated lots of VPs by the end.  Mike was steaming ahead with Geralt himself.  Phil thought he was doing quite well with the Dwarf, taking an early lead but actually came last as Mike claimed a well earned victory.

We also played Cthulhu Flux again.
