Last night was our monthly game night. SurfMonkey brought over Legendary, Marvel Dice Masters, and the Duke. We started with Legendary as it has a monstrous set up time. We played through and were beaten down by Mastermind Kingpin and his cronies. The game is a solid one, but I still struggle with the theme. It just doesn't feel superheroey to me.
Striving for a more immersive superhero experience, we busted out my new demo decks of the lost CCG City of Heroes, based on the old MMO of the same name. I played Positron and he played Synapse for the first game. Synapse barely came out on top. Then we switched decks and Synapse kicked Positron's butt soundly. I am really starting to get a feel for the game. Too bad the cards are not widely available. I am enjoying the decks I do have, however. I like the game quite a bit.
The final gaming experience of the night was The Duke. I ended up winning both games. In the second game, however, SurfMonkey was hampered by a sleep deprived brain and was defeated quickly and efficiently. That game is awesome.
As a side note: I know I said we were going to finally break out Mage Wars, but we decided more research was needed. I now have the Force Master deck to peruse for a future duel in the arena.
Until next time, good reader, keep on gaming.

Then we played a game of Sentinels vs. Kismet (Setback's nemesis). In the end, we kicked her butt.
After the heroes took down the supervillainess, we continued superhero action and played a couple of games of Marvel Dice Masters, using a roughshod draft mechanic.
We split our wins.
We finished out the evening with a head to head battle of Star Realms and then played a co op vs. the Nemesis Beast. We took it down!
Overall, a great night of gaming. Next month: We brave the arena and finally break out Mage Wars!
Summer Gaming with the boys: When not hanging out with SurfMonkey, the boys and I have been revisiting some of the great games.
In the Sentinels game, Plague Rat defeated us. Next up: Ambuscade invading The Block.
