January Tabletop Good Times!!!

More pictures of great gaming. SurfMonkey and I managed to get together earlier in the month on a Saturday for some Arkham Horror LCG and Star Wars Destiny. The boys and I have been playing various games: D&D, Imperial Assault, Cardfight Vanguard, Yu Gi Oh, Arkham Horror LCG (I even got in some solo games vs. the Rougarou).

As the snow continues to fall, the opportunities for more gaming goodness will continue. It is a busy time right now, but I am confident I can squeeze in some good gaming. 

Until next time, enjoy the pics. 

Thanks for visiting!

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!!
