Solo Descent Journeys in the Dark

Played some solo Descent. My group is named the Company of Intrepid Idiots. Avric, Grisban, Leoric, and Lashley. 

It was a tough delve trying to restore the soul of a priest. Lashley went down three times. But the rest kept the quest going. In the end, after defeating the abominations of the Flesh Moulders, the heroesbrestored the priest's soul. He can now rest in peace.





The Road to Legend App is a stroke of genius. I can't wait for more dungeon crawling adventures!

New Year; New Gaming!!

Thank you to my wonderful family, I was blessed with The Reign of Cthulhu and Descent Journeys in the Dark, Second Edition. My year in games is off to a great start!

The boys and I have been playing D&D, I have been playing some solo Arkham Horror LCG, and my new RPG passion, The Black Hack! What a great rules lite game system!




 The Ho Crain visited before New Year's Eve and we got in some Vanguard. 


New Year's Eve was a blast with our Christmas gift to Aunt Marcia: Mysterium as focus of the evening. It's a great game we will be adding to our family collection.


Max and I got Descent to the table and enjoyed the tutorial on the Road to Legend App. Expect to see much more of this awesome dungeon crawler throughout the year.


Happy new year everyone. I hope it's a great one!

Double the SurfMonkey. Arkham Horror the Card Game Is Mine!!!!

I finally got my hands on the new hotness, Arkham Horror The Card Game. If you remember, I play a lot of Call of Cthulhu LCG solo. Well, now, that will now become a strictly one player game as I have finally found my card game/solo experience/Lovecraftian experience all rolled into this thematic, story-driven, RPG / Card game that I am loving the heck out of right now.

I have played through the three scenarios in the core set. I played with Roland and Agnes. The story is really cool, and if your characters 'lose,' the story still continues. Your actions and consequences shape the scenarios that come after. 





Of course, SurfMonkey has the game as well as well as some downloaded and laminated game aids. Bling, bling! We have begun the core set campaign together. Him playing Roland; me playing Daisy. We managed a fairly successful opening scenario. But then a couple of days later, we tried the second scenario and got trounced twice. The third time mulligan was a semi successful one, and we now move on to the third scenario at our next meeting.


We also got in several plays of Star Wars Destiny. Fantasy Flight Games has yet another Star Wars hit on their hands with this one.



For his birthday, Maximan got Star Wars Imperial Assault. We have got a couple of games in and hope for much more. However, Maximan and I have also started our own Arkham Horror campaign with him playing Roland and me playing Wendy. Still any time at the gaming table is time well spent. 



The other day, the boys and I got in a game I have had for 13 years but have never played. Lord of the Rings Risk. We didn't quite finished, but it was fun nonetheless. And Jasper has found The Precious.


On Sunday of Thanksgiving break, the Starshield Board Game Knights met for a game night of Eldritch Horror and One Night Ultimate Werewolf. Good times!


With Christmas coming, more gaming goodness to come. See you all soon! Happy holidays!!

An Abundance of SurfMonkeys, Hero Realms Arrives, and Games With My Boys!

My Hero Realms Kickstarter arrived (Poor SurfMonkey's is held up in Customs). I also bought the new Gear Chronicle cards. All of this right before our monthly play date and game night. Fun times!










Not only did SurfMonkey and I enjoy the new cards (and some Luck and Logic) but the boys and I played a large amount of Hero Realms as well.




 Waiting for Arkham Horror the Card Game to come in. I have also been playing some solo The Cthulhu Hack. And also playing it online with Weezoh. Fun, fun, fun!

SurfMonkey Opens the Codex

Surfmonkey and I met for our monthly game and played a game of Codex, the game Tom Vasel sold his Magic the Gathering collection because it totally replaced it. I ended up winning that game. It has a bit of Magic, a bit of Mage Wars Academy, and a bit of RTS computer games. I like it. I think I need a few more plays to love it. 

We also played two games of Vanguard. After the first game and a SurfMonkey triple crit, we played another. I had better luck that game. 



Jasper and I played some Smash Up and Song of Blades and Heroes. Good times.





I got my Forsaken Lore expansion from my FLGS and got it and the rest of Eldritch Horror to the table for a solo game. It was a tough game, but I pulled out a win.


At the game society I run at the high school where I teach, I ran the Save Innsmouth adventure for Cthulhu Hack. It was a great game! The system works great, and the students and I had a great time. They narrowly avoided a hungry Shoggoth and barely escaped alive. 


More gaming to come, I'm sure. Stay tuned and stay warm.
