Did I mention I love to play games...
SurfMonkey was over for our monthly night of games. First up was Castle Ravenloft. The game components are high quality as you would expect from WotC. We did opt, though, to use pre-painted minis from my collection for our characters. I was playing the Dwarf Cleric, and SurfMonkey was playing the Dragonborn.
We played two of the scenarios. The first one we won, and the second won we were defeated by the dracolich. Came close, though, but in the end, I had to use too many of my Encounter Powers too early. Oh, well.
I enjoyed the game, but it made me want to play an RPG. And not 4E, strangely enough. After exploring the nightmare world of the Castle, it was time to Summon forth more fun in two games of Summoner Wars.
In the first game, the Vanguards fell to the Precise strikes of the Phoenix Elves. Ouch. But the good news was, I finally got out the Magos. By that time, though, it was too late.
For the last game, my trusty Tundra Orcs smashed the undead. I mean, this game was all orcs. I almost felt bad for SurfMonkey. Nothing went his way. But hey, at least he won the first game. No matter what, though, when you play Summoner Wars, you have fun, win or lose. At least that has been my experience.
