First up was Netrunner:
My faction for the game is pictured below...
I never played Netrunner back in the day, so this was my first exposure to it. I think the game is sound, but the two factions Surf and I faced off against each other were complete nemeses. As a result, the game was not very fun for me, but after another play, I think I may have more fun.
Next up was Star Wars: X Wing:
My experience with SW X Wing was a better one. I really enjoyed playing this game. The hidden tactical choices and the measuring sticks, and the MINIS! Just an awesome experience. I may be buying this one for Max and me for Christmas.
We finished the night with a game of Martian Dice. Good times.
Month the Second:
SurfMonkey brought over the highly-anticipated game: Mice and Mystics by Geek Cave favorite: Plaid Hat Games. Now this is a game. It is a unique kind of story telling game that is part board game, part role-playing game. I really enjoyed it. Below are some pics of this gorgeous game:
I really like this game and look forward to playing it again.
SurfMonkey brought his Bannersonthecheap.com custom play mat. It added a cool visual dimension to the game.
Looking forward to next month when we may head back to Middle-Earth but not before we participate in a Mage War!
Thanks for reading, and until next time, roll some dice, sling some cards, and save the multiverse!
