Five of us made it a long to the inaugural Christmas afternoon games session, last Wednesday (28 December)
We played a tough game of Last Night on Earth, with Mark H as the Zeds taking the win in the last fight of the game. If the heroes had won the that fight, the game would have gone to them
As ever with LNoE there were some stand out moments;
– The teacher, fleeing from the high school pursued by zombies and being saved by the pilot firing a signal flare into the lead zombie, from the nearby woods
– The waitress, after battling two zombies in the diner, found a lighter, turned the gas on, pushed past the zeds, and threw the lighter behind her, to blowing them (and the diner) to hell
Later we played Scythe, with Ben taking the victory through a fast play strategy. The rest of us (apart from Darren) had pretty much figured out what we were doing when the game ended!
Scythe is a good game, with both a strategic and tactical balance needed to win, and gets better the more its played.
We rounded out the afternoon with a couple of games of Tsuro.
All in all a good afternoon of gaming, hanging out with friends, and a welcome break from the seasonal festivities. Plans are to do the same for the 2017 Christmas break.
