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.

Falling Leaves: Lovecraft Is in the Air


As fall approaches, my thoughts turn to the world of Lovecraft. Specifically, Eldritch Horror and my new RPG darling: The Cthulhu Hack. 

                                                     

The Cthulhu Hack is based off the insanely popular The Black Hack. The Cthulhu Hack brings an old school rules lite with a dash of modern design (D&D 5E and Trail of Cthulhu) approach to the Lovecraftian, with a dash of pulp, investigative horror genre. So fun! 
This game continues to thrill me. I play it primarily solo, and with my busy fall schedule, the plays are few and far between, but at least I have a nice place to keep a game in progress up and am able to play a turn or two between responsibilities. 







In a side note, the boys played a quick game of Onitama while waiting for Grandma and Grandpa.


As the leaves and fall deepens, I hope to get even more time in playing games. SurfMonkey and I are getting together on Tuesday this week as well as a session of the Red Dragon Tabletop Game Society. I am currently running a D&D game for upperclassmen there. Also, my weekly D&D game is every Sunday night.

The gaming life is good!!

Eldritch Horror to the Max!!

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!!
