Mythic Battles Pantheon - Ares vs the Chimera Like most, if not all tabletop games clubs, the BAD Gamers is currently suspended from its normal habit of meeting on Tuesday nights. We went into lockdown in March, with our last club night being March 17 (which seems a VERY long time ago). However, we've managed … Continue reading Gaming in the lockdown
Descent continued its journey towards the end of the campaign with part two of the Wyrm Turns scenario. This saw the (so called) heroes try and stop the Overlord's minions escape from the dungeon with the Red Dragon Skull. Despite Overlord Frank now playing with a little more organisation (he has a spreadsheet!) allowing him … Continue reading Fantasy gaming to the fore

A few of us remembered it from our youth, and this new version while an improvement, still has some flaws from days of yore; - Several times an escape officer's turn would be spent … Continue reading Escaping from Colditz and nostalgia
A firm favourite at the BAD Gamers is the boardgame Last Night on Earth. A story driven game, with a roll and move mechanic, and a zombie movie theme, it never fails to deliver a great time, with experiences being retold many times over. On this occasion the brave (stupid?) heroes had landed their plane … Continue reading Last Night on Earth: Salvage Mission
The land of Rallion is still in trouble despite our heroes successfully negotiating the initial missions of Dungeons & Dragons The Fantasy Adventure Board Game.

Angor and his minions were only … Continue reading “Fear not:… I am Dungeon Master, your guide in the realm of Dungeons and Dragons!”
