Number of Players : 4 Game Length : 6.5 Hours Winner : Brian End Card: Battle Royale
Adam: Tavern Maid Paul: Vampiress Shawn: Cat Burglar/Doomsayer Brian: Alchemist
It was the first game with the new City Expansion and with the special ability of the new Tavern Maid character, Adam poured Brian enough drinks to send him to the poorhouse.
At the same time this forced him to seemingly forever miss his next go which pissed him off so much he wanted to go home after twenty minutes. He looked like a kid on Christmas
morning that awoke to find a lump of coal in his stocking.
Perhaps because he was the Vampiress and had a thing for the rarest of the rarest blood, Paul, it seemed, was in the mood for Skewered Unicorn. He began by stealing Brian’s
follower Unicorn and then his pet unicorn “Glitter” which - despite having a ‘my little pony-ish’ name - is one hell of a strong card to have. It certainly didn’t look like it was going
to be Brian’s day. But someone else was having even worse luck…
Shawn was able to have - not one but - TWO characters die on him! A rare feat it must be said and one which i doubt he could repeat but feel free to try next time?!
Toward the end, Adam was one die roll away from certain victory - he was about to head to the Crown of Command via the Dungeon’s back door. But the worm had turned and
Brian with his never ending supply of spells cast MISFORTUNE forcing Adam to roll a 1 and thus banishing him to the Crags instead of the center of the board.
Throughout the game Brian had an uncanny knack for rolling 3’s.
Similarly, Shawn could roll 1’s like there was no tomorrow.
Believe it or not, right at then end with the three remaining characters dueling it out with the Battle Royale, Paul could somehow consistently roll the combination 3 then a 6, the
ONLY combo that would give him even a chance at a win (much to Brian’s frustration and disbelief). Alas, it was still not enough to win but it was close.
In the end, Brian triumphed.
There must have been some magic in one of those potions i poured….
END STATS FOR ALCHEMIST - Strength 18, Craft 16, Life 4, Gold FAR TOO MUCH…..
CARD OF THE DAY : Flail
A new addition from the City Expansion that allows you an additional dice roll in combat thereby almost guaranteeing your victory. Paul and Shawn both had the opportunity to
experience this fantastic card. Since there are only two of these available, I sense there will be a race each game to get to the armory and be the first one to pick one up.
PLAYER OF THE DAY : Shawn
For his unyielding dedication to detail and fair play. Death and Werewolf are forever in his debt. From now on he will be known as ‘Honest Shawn’.
QUOTE OF THE DAY : “Thanks for the Cheese Steak”
Said by Adam immediately after killing the provider of said Cheese Steak. Brian was still in tears laughing over it more than 24 hours later.
DRINK OF THE DAY : Monty Python’s Holy Grail Ale
It was the only beer that didn’t have any bottles left at game’s end. Not that anyone has anything against Strawberry Wheat Beer.
