Epic Vs. System 2pcg Fun!

My Kickstarted darling, Epic the Card Game arrived the other day. It is all sleeved up and has been played several times already. Deal out 30 cards each and duel! I have played Zoltar & SurfMonkey. And Maximan and I have played several games as well. I do love the feel of the game. The art is amazing. Looking forward to more plays. Red Dragon Tabletop Game Society here it comes!

Maximan and I are playing the heck out of Vs. System. The gaming community seems pretty torn on this one, but Max and I are loving it.

Sling cards like it's my job!

Into the Fall...

 In the Starshield Gaming Society, fall is in full swing and Weezoh is running our annual Lovecraft game. This year is the Eternal Lies campaign for Trail of Cthulhu. So far, so great and creepy. Great role-playing at its finest.

In other tabletop news:

Max and I have been playing the new and exciting VS. System 2PCG from Upper Deck Entertainment. I am really enjoying it! Things the game has in common with Call of Cthulhu LCG: Draw 2 cards a round, any card can be a resource. 

It is a fast-paced and fun game. I can't stop thinking about playing it. Sign of a good game, if you ask me. Looking forward to crushing SurfMonkey in it in a couple of weeks. 

The Red Dragon Tabletop Gaming Society has begun. I taught a student how to play Ashes and plan on running a D&D game for a couple of sessions. 

Fall has begun. Let the games begin!

Two Nights of SurfMonkey And School Begins...

Somehow, two game nights with SurfMonkey have come and gone without a post. Time to catch up.

Our first of the two missing sessions found us trying out the Star Wars Imperial Assault minis game. We played the tutorial skirmish mission.

From there we broke out the new hotness in card games: Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn from Plaid Hat Games, the company that brought me my favorite game: Summoner Wars. The designer, Isaac Vega also brought the world one of the best games in the universe, Dead of Winter.

This game does not disappoint. The dice resource mechanic makes me smile and the card art is beautiful.

Our second session saw more Ashes. Different decks this time and SurfMonkey came out victorious in a glorious back and forth slugfest.

 We ended the night with a game of Dicemasters: Dungeons & Dragons. SurfMonkey hadn't played this version of Dicemasters yet, so it was a must play for him. In the end, I was victorious. Fun times.

I have also been doing some solo gaming in my dwindling free time. 

That's right. I have broken out ye old Pathfinder Adventure Card Game recently and finished another chapter in the Rise of the Runelords campaign and have set up for another. I think this game still holds up and look forward to finally finishing the story arc. As there are plenty more adventures for this game to come, I think it will keep me firmly in solo gaming for awhile.

Fall is slowly approaching, and as anyone knows, fall is Lovecraft time here at magehammer's Gaming Table. I played some more Call of Cthulhu LCG and will be beginning a campaign as a player in Weezoh's Trail of Cthulhu game soon. Stay tuned for more gaming goodness as the footballs fly and the leaves tumble. 

Keep on rolling dice and slinging cards, people!
