I got in another solo game this past week. It was brutal!! I played three investigators vs. Yog-sothoth. Though, the investigators managed to keep the Great Old One from entering our world, I lost two investigators in the process. One to insanity and the other to bodily harm.
It was taxing but in the end oh, so fun!!
Then Maximan and I played a game vs. Ithaqua. Holy crap! We got our hypothermia-ed butts handed to us. It truly was a horrific defeat.
Maximan is thirsting for vengeance. I can't wait to play again!!
SurfMonkey came over Saturday for a bonus game day. We played two games of Luck and Logic and two games of Cardfight Vanguard.
I played Tamaki and Chloe vs. SurfMonkey's brand spanking new Trial Deck. Bullet Logic. He trounced me both games.
In our Vanguard games, I played my Dark Irregulars vs. his Granblue. I decked out and lost. Our second game was my Gear Chronicle Time Leap deck vs. his Gold Paladins Unite deck. I finally won one that day.
Well played, SurfMonkey. Well played.

As the Lovecraft time of year approaches, I decided to try out a new Arkham Files game from Fantasy Flight Games to provide a different style of game than my usual solo Call of Cthulhu LCG play.
This game has intrigued me since it came out a couple of years ago. Being a fully cooperative game, it also plays excellently solo.
I got it to the table and was able to play a complete game piecemeal over four days time. Final verdict: It's a blast! I played three investigators trying to prevent Azathoth from entering our world and devouring it.
I didn't lose a single investigator, though they were pretty beat up, and it was a romping good time. I have purchased the Mountains of Madness big box expansion and will work its additions into the next game. I also have the first expansion, Forsaken Lore on order at my FLGS. Can't wait for more terrible goodness to infect my games!
I have a feeling this gem of a game will find plenty of play throughout the fall and into the winter. Can't wait to play it again!
Until next time, play some games!!
Brigid and Weezoh were in town, so the Starshield Boardgaming Knights met up at Zoltar's house for a night of boardgaming. First up was Dead of Winter, followed by two games of Codenames. We won the Dead of Winter game! I was 1-1 in Codenames.
Games continue to happen at our home game table. I pulled out an old chestnut for Maximan to experience. Dreamblade!!! Still a solid fun game.
Maximan and Jaspersaurus got in some more Imperial Assault. They played an outdoor encounter on one of my D&D playmats. The Imperials and bounty hunters won the day.
Thanks for reading. And I'll see you at the gaming table.
