    Yeah, you definitely do a good bit of rolling for every enemy on the board. I was wondering why I never saw a BSF battle report pop up, you guys tend to play a good bit of GW board games.

    I here ya Peter, I am from Louisiana in the States and we have it the worst it seems. Too much socializing in this state, lol. I work in the Oil & Gas industry, so you can imagine how slow work is with gas being so cheap. I am still working though, which is nice considering how many people have been laid off. Maybe I can actually finish some painting!

    As far as games played I played a few games of Mission: Red Planet Second Edition with my family and it was great to get that one to the table again. One of my favorite family weight games for sure.

    I played another mission of me and my daughters Aftermath campaign, and once I got the rules down we really enjoy it.

    I played 3 games of Space Cadets: Away Missions with my work room mate and it’s a great sci fi co-op. Very simple and streamlined, and I like that about it.

    Unfortunately I had a big game night planned while I was home where I was going to finally get to try my copy of DOOM the Board Game Second Edition but I canceled due to the virus, of course.

    I have Elder Sign with the Unseen Forces and Streets of Arkham set up right now to play solo when ever I get the chance. Looking forward to losing, but having fun doing it, lol.

    I really enjoy Blackstone Fortress, although I have never played it solo. I am sure it would be just fine though. There really isn’t much story wise, as far as when you are playing the game, although there is a novel in The Black Library. I don’t see it being easy at all. My only complaint is that I swore I wouldn’t play it again until I painted the whole thing, and here I am a year later and it still isn’t finished, lol.

    Yeah, sometimes there can definitely be overload of content, especially for KS games. Did you hear about the new War of the Ring expansion coming?

    I have been super busy with work lately, and have watched more videos of Will and Peter playing games than I have actually gotten to play, but the last few weeks I got a few games in while I was home.

    Aftermath– Impulse buy, but I am glad I bought it. It’s a story book game from Plaid Hat Games along the lines of Stuffed Fables or Mice and Mystics. It has a post apocalyptic theme and some really nice components. Me and my daughter enjoyed our first play, and I think it is the best of their story book line. Unfortunately, Plaid Hat always has issues with rule books, and this one is no exception. It took quite a few trips to BGG to actually learn how to play the game correctly, but a good game nonetheless.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die– Played a friends KS copy at our game night and had a lot of fun. Very simple, even more so than I expected, but still a lot of fun. Seemed a little easy as well, considering we beat it my first play, which usually doesn’t happen in modern co-op games.

    Rangers of Shadowdeep– D&D meets tabletop skirmish! Awesome game. Just enough story/RPG elements to feel like you are playing an RPG, but has all of the tabletop skirmish tactical gameplay. D20 combat system as well, which is cool.

    Kingsburg– One of the few euros I own, and one of my favorites.

    Court of the Dead: Mourners Call– Another play of this great KS game. Area control with amazing components, and a cool, dark theme. My first KS I ever backed and still glad I backed it.

    Deadzone Second Edition– I finally got this to the table. I know they get flack for the miniature quality, and I understand the complaints considering they were a bit of a nightmare to assemble, but man the game play is great. So streamlined and easy, and I actually really enjoy their movement system.

    Well, besides a few games of Funkoverse Harry Potter with my 7 year old son, that about covers it.

    Peter, did you back the expansion for Conan? I finally got on board and backed the pledge that had the original king pledge included. I had to go watch your video of you guys playing it again after, and I can’t wait to get it!

    My group always wonders how TI4 games last as long as they do when other groups are playing, lol. As a group we have played TI4 about 5 times, and the games have never lasted over 4 hours.

    Oh yes, I understand. No complaints here, I watch every batrep you guys put up.

    Yep, you are the guy that brought Puppet Wars to my attention. A battle report of that would be sweet. I really like the card system used in the game. If I enjoy the game a lot, I may be interested in checking out Malifaux, the miniatures game system it is based on. I have already bought vintage spools to use as terrain(I wonder where I saw that, hmmmmm) and I plan on using jumbo buttons for work benches, and small buttons for activation tokens. And yes, I had your summary and cards downloaded before my copy even came in, lol.

    My copy of Court of the Dead: Mourner’s Call came in a few weeks ago, and the components are great, and I can’t wait to play it next week. I have been playing some solo runs of Mythic Battles: Pantheon to get the rules down and I have a feeling I will really enjoy this game. I love original spins on dice combat(Forbidden Stars is my favorite board game largely due to it’s combat) and the dice combat system is really cool in MB:P. I played a game of Arcane Academy with my 7 year old son, and it is a very well made engine builder that is easy to teach and grasp. I still need to assemble my models for Puppet Wars Unstitched and Aetherium, and I am looking forward to giving those a try as well. Lately I have been buying, sleeving, and printing out summaries for way more games than I have gotten to play, unfortunately.

    I have Court of the Dead: Mourner’s Call waiting for me to get home from work as well! I can’t wait to play. I had a chance to open it up before I left and the components are great. It is an area control, card drafting KS game with a cool, dark theme. I should get this one played next week, so I will see if the game lives up to the components.

    Before I left I did get to play Big Trouble in Little China: The Board Game, and it was great fun. It has always been my favorite movie, but I was wary about the game because of a bunch of typo issues and rules errors on the components, but I broke down and bought the deluxe edition because someone was selling it for cheap on Facebook. I am glad I picked it up finally.

    I played a game of Fate of the Elder Gods with my new play mat and enjoyed it, as usual.

    Besides Court of the Dead, I have quite a few new games waiting for me when I get home. I picked up Mythic Battles Pantheon 1.5 with the KS exclusives, Puppet Wars Unstitched (and a bunch of sewing spools to pimp it out, thanks to someone’s youtube video) and Aetherium, a cyber punk miniatures skirmish game. My days off should be filled with some great gaming.

    If you are a fan of The Fury of Dracula, it is a game you will probably enjoy. It’s not as complex as Fury but it has that cat and mouse thing going. It’s a fun game. I enjoy Fury more, but it is easier to teach and a good bit shorter, so it has it’s place along side of it.

    I got to do a good bit of gaming on my week off. I got another play of Jaws in, as well as two plays of Blood Rage one night. Star Wars Legion hit the table again, as well as one of my favorite games ever, Forbidden Stars. I wanted to finally get my first play of Wild West Exodus in, and had it all set up, but it never happened before I had to leave for work again. Maybe next time. Since moving into my new home and having a dedicated game room with an actual gaming table, it has really got a lot of my friends interested in coming check some games out, which is awesome.
