Saturday 28th January: Mansions of Madness   Leave a comment

Mike brought over his latest expansion for Mansions.  It involves a Murder Mystery Dinner Investigation with a Cthulhu twist of course.  Phil, Bruce, Alex and Darryl also took part.  Needless to say the scary mansion made everyone soon low on Sanity.  Mike, Darryl and Bruce lost theirs before the end.


Fortunately the Investigators were able to follow the clues and defeat the Evil menace before the end.  Unfortunately for Bruce and Darryl they did not meet their New Insane Victory Conditions but overall this was a Cthulhu type Victory for the Investigators.  Well done!

Saturday 21st January; War of the Ring   Leave a comment

Mike was Sauron, Phil Saruman, DARRYL was Rohan and Alex played his first ever game as Gondor.  All the expansions were in play using second edition rules.  We had never seen so many play on the table cads in play at once.  The new factions certainly had an influence. Saruman stole all the muster dice bringing Isengard and the Dunlendings into play.  

The free people’s brought the ends and the eagles on but their utility was delayed due to a on nobody’s side card.  However they did put the fear into Saruman who had to leave a garrison at orthanc.  

Early on the fellowship travelled far staying hidden all the way to fangorn with smeagols incredible help drawing three tiles.  They went to fangorn to bypass the closed gates of Maria and to release strider from the entwood so he could summon the army of the dead.

For their part the evil team attacked Rohan with a force of dunleendings and isengard elites smashing across the fords and into helms deep then endorses before Rohan could muster.  Meanwhile sauron had built up some strong forces to attack Gondar with .  Eventually they did so and quickly took mines tirith and pelargir.  The south eons mustered at umbra awaiting the great fleet but were slow to move to war.  However it seemed likely they would be required to reinforce the army besieging the city of dol amrRoth at the end of our game.  

With dol amRoth besieged this would put the evil players on eight vp should it fall.  The companions and fellowship were strong with just strider and Legolas away.  Lots of cards on the table plus some good blue tiles in play.  However there were red cards to balance them and no safe places to heal up corruption nearer than Lorien.  Also the party were on about five corruption though both sides had cards to influence this.  Thus with the hour late victory was awarded to sauron and Saruman.
