Re Summoning Summoner Wars, King of Tokyo, and the Ho Crain Passes Through



Image result for king of tokyo

After watching a series of reviews by the Dice Tower on the final series of Second Summoners for my favorite board game, Max and I were inspired to make our way back to the battlefields of Itharia. 

We each won a game. Good times. 




The Ho Crain stopped by for some Cardfight Vanguard goodness. I won three of four games and taught Crain how to play my solo version.

The boys and I keep breaking out King of Tokyo when we get the chance. It really is a great filler game.

On to more games. See you all next time.

SurfMonkey Continues His Vanguard Victories! Plus, Summer Games!

SurfMonkey and I got together for our monthly game night Tuesday night for some Cardfight! Vanguard. The only one of my decks that was victorious was my Gear Chronicle deck. However, the great thing about playing Vanguard is you have fun, win or lose. Looking forward to more Cardfighting with SurfMonkey next month!! I will have my revenge!




The boys and I got in a game of the new Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes ruleset. It does have more than standard SoBH, but really doesn't seem much more complicated. True to Andrea's designs, it is a simple, streamlined miniatures skirmish. 

My orcs were wiped out early and the boys slugged it out. In the end, it was Max and his wizard that orchestrated an amazing comeback over poor Jasper. Good times, though!




Summer break is in full swing here, and the boys and I have been playing a variety of games. We have gotten King of the Tabletop to the 'table' twice already. Good dice chukking and monster slashing fun!



With summer here, the boys and I have resumed our Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Their characters are still at 10th level. But not for long. Captain Teamat, Major Orchard, Kardrell Stormpeace, and the newest member of the party, Bob the Halfling Rogue. Black dragon, stone golem, and tiefling assassins are just a few of the foes the heroes have vanquished. Looking forward to more adventures with the boys!


And, of course, no post would be complete without mentioning my solo Vanguard games. Still fun. Love playing this game solitaire almost as much as I love losing to SurfMonkey at Vanguard. Ha! JK! Love playing this game no matter what.


Thanks for reading. Until the next post, keep on gaming on!

Dead of Winter in the Summer?! You Betcha!

Max wanted to play a game of Dead of Winter. I was very happy to hear that. We set it up and played a co op game over two days. Things were going along pretty well until a survivor attacked a zombie, was bitten, and wiped out the colony. But that's life (and death) during the zombie apocalypse. This game is truly one of my favorites. Can't wait until Max asks to play it again!



Now that summer break is officially here, I am, of course, spending some time with my new current favorite past time: Playing Solo Cardfight! Vanguard. I am currently typing up the solo rules and will post them soon. For now, though, enjoy these images from a couple of the games I have played. 



SurfMonkey and I are scheduled for a monthly game night on June 7th, stay tuned for a report on the gaming goodness from that clash of the titans. Until then, sling some cards!!!!
