SurfMonkey's Quest

SurfMonkey came over for our monthly night o' games. He brought over the brand new Lord of the Rings Card Game. After I got the hang of the rules it was on. It is a cooperative game for up to four players. We played each of the four decks over the course of the evening. I must say the Spirit Deck felt more 'me' than the Tactics Deck I played. However, in the Tactics Deck, I did get to play Gimli, Legolas, and Thalin. Those guys did kick butt. In the end, however, I was overcome by my threat level. I am blaming Gandalf because he never showed up on my side of the board.


The Quest Begins...


Lots of Spiders. Some orcs, too...


Gimli wounded, but kicking butt thanks to some awesome armor...


We also got in one game of Summoner Wars. Of course. The night wouldn't be complete without a game of Summoner Wars. We decided to roll randomly for our factions. I rolled the Jungle Elves, and SurfMonkey rolled the Vanguards. 

I was out of the gate with the Lioneers and managed an early game advantage by wounding his summoner. He rallied, though, getting out tons of Champions. I had a Champion of my own, however. The Champions fought to the death. 

In the end, however, it was a lowly archer who felled Sera behind her wall of protectors with an Arcing Shot. Oh, sweet victory.


SurfMonkey will return again in the middle of June. We shall see what games will make it to my gaming table that night, but until then, fellow gamer, roll some dice and good gaming....
