Thursday Nights

These are my reports of the games we play and our views of the weaknesses and strengths of the games. I will be blunt, truthful and not always kind (except about my D&D Campaign!)

Back Home

11th Back to the pitch

Firstly apologies for last week, I had to be away on business so missed the session. The gamne played was the new Fantasy Flight game "X-Wing Fighter". It played very similar to Wings of War, with some good innovations added. However Luke and R2 in an X-Wing seemed to overbalance and the Squire romped to victory.... Thanks to Sir Animal for the update.

A limited crowd tonight, with no squire or Gareth and Malcolm. So we played a game of Blood Bowl Manager. We took out the errata'ed cards, recommended on the "Geek" and it was a lot more balanced game. In addition being Chaos for the first time, I was able to get quite a powerful team togther. The unfortunate side was that I was public enemy number 1 and as such Sir Steve was able to get the final score. The down side is that though the unbalanced cards had gone, the Human team has a lesser version of one of the worse cards and so Sir Steve's final margin of victory was a lot greater than the game played. Sorry but this card still unbalances the game so i do not know why they put them in. It does seem to be sloppy play-testing that has bugged FF for several years.

Hopefully there will be more business as usal now and i will endeavour to keep the site up to date. Also we tested an updated version of Sir Steve's game.... Thirsty Knights. The game has more screwage cards that can only be a good thing. It is a fun, fast paced game with plenty to do each round.... Just waiting to see how we can then move this forward.
