That’s what it was like at the BAD Gamers December all day gaming session, on Sunday
Frostgrave is a firm favourite in the club, with Dead Man’s Hand, a close second.
Scrappers played surprisingly well. It comes from Osprey, and is a post apocalyptic gang level skirmish game. It’s more complex than Frostgrave, in both setup of the crews and mechanics, but still easy to pick up. The game became intuitive after a couple of rounds and as it relies on an opposed die roll approach, it keeps you involved no matter who’s go it is.
A little later Pete and Graham called down the Elder Gods in a game of Elder Sign.
We then all joined in a game of Escape from Colditz, which in-spite of its flaws, proved to be great fun with a lot of laughs.
A quick detour into the card and dice game Age of War, which has a lot more depth to it than it first suggests, and then the day rounded out with a game of Puerto Rico – which was a first time for most of us, and the reason why this older game is considered a euro game classic, became obvious very quickly.
Good times and now looking forward to the next one at the end of January
