SurfMonkey and I Battle to a Standstill...Twice

SurfMonkey was over last night for our monthly game night. We had a hiatus in May but were back with a vengeance. We took another crack at Star Wars the Card Game. Since the last time we tackled this gem, SurfMonkey has acquired several Force Packs. We threw those into our decks and headed into the conflict. 

I played Smugglers and Spies on the Light Side. SurfMonkey played the Imperial Navy. We played two games. I overwhelmed him in the first game and the second game went to the Dark Side. 

Then we turned our attention to the Old World. He chose the High Elves and I chose Chaos. After the first game, my Sorcerer destroyed his forces and my bloodthirsty troops smashed the pointed ears into the ground. Then we switched decks, and though I made a good run of it, Chaos triumphed in the end. 

Another game night in the books with no clear winner. A special thank you to SurfMonkey for the unexpected birthday present: Noir. Thanks again. And see you next month, young Padawan.

Until next time, gentle reader, may your cards fall the way you want and your dice roll true. 

School's Out; Games Are In!

Over the past couple of days, Maximan66 and I have played a couple of games of Warhammer Invasion. My collection keeps growing and the decks keep getting cooler. 

 From the Battle of the Old World, we turned to the battlefields of Song of Blades and Heroes and the war torn lands in a Galaxy Far, Far Away...Max won both of the conflicts, but soon I will rally reinforcements and destroy his forces once and for matter which battlefield we clash on.
 Saturday was family game night. The whole family sat down for a relaxing game of adventurers and intrigue that is Lords of Waterdeep. I beat the love of my life by 1 point! Epic. 
Max wanted to see what Dungeon Command was all about, so we sat down to a skirmish between the Heroes of Cormyr and the Blood of Grummsh. The orcs won the day, but it was a good time. The more I play this game, the more I like it. 

The summer is only beginning and the games will keep coming. After a month's hiatus, SurfMonkey will be back in the next entry. Have fun and use sun screen.
