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!)

Lost Legends

Back to the Knights and Squire which if you don’t know makes 5, Sir Animal choice of game was Lost Legends his newly purchased game.

Blurb from the Game

Lost Legends is a fantasy card game by Mike Elliott that combines a streamlined Euro game design and card drafting with an interesting fantasy theme and battle mechanic. Players take on the role of heroes trying to assemble an arsenal of equipment in order to vanquish a series of monsters that they will encounter.

The game begins with all players choosing one of five heroes each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Each player fights their own monster; this is not a cooperative game. The monster each hero will likely face is revealed to them before players draft cards for their equipment. An interesting aspect in this game is you may, if the conditions are right, evade a monster in front of you, and pass it to the hero next to you. But be aware if you do this you have to fight the monster you draw next!

Players then select an equipment card drafted from a hand of cards, and pass the remainder of the hand to your left to prepare for battle with the monster in front of them. The equipment draft continues in this manner until only one card is left in each hand, which is discarded. Players then compare their drafted equipment to their monster to determine the result of the battle! The game consists of 3 levels filled with monsters to slay and new equipment to pick up.

Players need Legend Points to win the game! These come in the form of trophies awarded for most monsters as well as sets of monsters slain. Can you defeat the monsters thrown in your path to glory and become the most Legendary?

Thursday night Report

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!! When drafting the cards get a weapon any WEAPON!

As we have never played this game, the first hand I was dealt was 5 weapons and a shield so not knowing the game or the cards I just thought the armour was harder to get than weapons so I chose the shield, I didn’t see any other weapons come round in the draft, so on the first level I spent my go just soaking up the hits from the monsters and passing them round when I could, I didn’t die but I lost out on getting trophies and extra legend points which hurt me in the game as it progressed I never caught up on this, but a steep learning curve for the next game! Level 2 I managed to get a weapon but I was killed very early in the game so I spent about another 6 rounds waiting for the others to either to be killed or for them to finish the level, On the final draft on the third round I decide I had to kill at least 1 monster before the game ended, I was lucky on the drafting cards and got the dragon slaying card and a double damage spell, the first monster I came against wasn’t a dragon, I managed to duck its attack and passed it on next turn, I manage to kill the next monster in two turns without losing anymore life, then lucky for me the next card was a dragon, I sacrificed my sword for the kill leaving me without a weapon again, but the game was nearly over as the second dragon attacked me killing me on the last round of the game.

Scoring the game at the end the player with the most money received 6 points at last some points for me, beating Sir Nic by 1 coin! But that was the last of the scoring for me. The other totaled there scores up for there trophies and legendary points they had collected through the game.

The Final Score

Sir Nic 50 points

Squire Phil 45

Sir Keith 36

Sir Animal 19

Sir Steve 6

Even that I had a dismal game, I still am eager to play it again hopefully very soon!!
