SurfMonkey and I Become Pathfinders


This past Tuesday, I headed over to SurfMonkey HQ for a night of gaming. And what a night it was! We cracked open the brand spankin' new Pathfinder Adventure Card Game. Surf played Seelah, the Paladin. I opted for Seoni, the sorceress. 

Being the completists we are, we started at the beginning with the intention of running these characters through until the end...if they don't die, that is.

Our first play through, we were so eager to get to the game we made a big blunder. We just shuffled all the various types of cards and did blind, random draws to meet our characters' starting deck requirements. Oops. We totally forgot our characters had specific beginning deck configurations. Anyway, we found the bandit leader and took him down. Despite having slightly more powerful gear than we should have, we were challenged. 

For our second game, we decided to do things right and re-built our decks properly. We took on the bandit leader again and took him down. 

We had enough time to do the second scenario in the Perils of the Lost Coast adventure path. We took on Pillbug Potiker. And were triumphant, bringing the villain to justice! 

What a fun time this game is! I am loving the improving characters aspect of this game. The most surprising thing about this game is the fact I am constantly thinking about the next game and how the new items, weapons, spells, etc. my character has acquired are going to play the next time we head out seeking adventure. 

Like Summoner Wars, this game has all I love in a game: Fantasy theme, dice rolling, and cards! 

Looking forward to further fun!
