A late event cancellation at the arena, suddenly opened the space up for some gaming over Easter weekend. A dedicated group of players threw together some games and had a blast playing some fun stuff and sharing M&Ms!

Surviving the Cosmic Fiery Path of the Ascending Dragon's Multiverse Night! And baseball. Cubs win. (a simulation, of course...)

First group tried to fin d their way along "The Path", a group favorite filler game.

Newcomer MIKE P survived the longest & WON, as fellow travellers
Jesse & Greg were knocked out earliest (tho took surprisingly long to lose anyone!)
followed shortly by Scott & Rob's collision,
then Pat & Brian's mutually assured destruction,
then Steven was forced to play himself off the board...

Fun stuff!

The group split up 4 x 5, with Briian's group getting some p-t in on this soon-to-be-released game. Brian sailed to the win, but the rest were neck & neck for second:

94 - BRIAN
47 - Greg
43 - Steven P
41 - Nick

The other 5 joined for a battle of wits over this great negotiation and rule-breaking classic!

JESSE, MIKE P, & ROBBY settled for mutual victory (5) after some heated final battles and skin-of-the-teeth defeats left Scott & Pat cold...
Jesse wins over the newcomers with guile and subterfuge!

JESSE - 5 Magician (stole cards during combat!)
MIKE P - 5 Zombie (ships never "died", just kept coming, and coming..)
ROBBY - 5 Will (was able to attack whomever he wanted, regardless of Destiny draw)

Padraig - 4 Philanthropist (was able to throw cards to other players)
Scott - 4 Shadow (2 turns, then forced by Jesse's Reincarnator card to change races, drew Leviathan, giving me a Worldship, letting me attack with a whole Planet! +20)

Fun game, as always! (i'll get you Magician! )

Mike P was eager to teach this popular deck-builder. Glad to see a newbie joining the Game Teaching Ranks! Storm of Souls is a stand-alone "expansion".

78 - MIKE P (wait, 1st day and he's 3-0 ?!?!?)
66 - Rob
64 - Padraig

Jesse joined Scott for some baseball action!
Jesse played his (& Scott's beloved Cubbies), Scott suffered thru the intolerable Cincinatti Reds...

Cubs got on the board in the 4th, but the Reds got the run back in the 5th. After a pitching change, the Reds bullpen coughed up 3 runs in the 7th, after loading the bases twice... Cubs (fictional) bullpen came thru and shut down the wimpy Reds comeback attempts.

Final Cubs 4, Reds 1
WP: Dempster (SV Marmol)
LP: Cueto

Always a good time. Nice to play with another person for once! (tho it's a blast solo if you're a bball fan, and quick).

Padraig got to teach his newly sleeved Superhero game (that a few of us have been raving about). He may have decided it isn't his cup-o-tea, tho. Curious what the others thought.

Sentinels - VICTORIOUS:
Jesse (Tempest)
Mike P (Ra)
Rob (Fanatic)
Padraig (Legacy)

Villain - DEFEATED: Baron Blade
Location: MEGALOPOLIS

Interesting take on the Pandemic-style co-op. Seems easy enough early on, but spirals horribly out-of-control later. We blew it and all died.
Couldn't even keep the cat alive...

Greg (Paramedic)
Steven P (Hose-man)
Nick (Driver/Truck Hose Operator)
Scott (Fire Captain)

Saved 4 of 7, 3 died, building collapsed...

Love this game, always a hoot. Added 5-6 Player and Giant Squid expansions. (we decided squid wasn't as effective in 6 player game as it would be w fewer...)

Very cutthraot and nasty (as it should be!), but 3 players ended up saving 3 of their Atlanteans!

3 - NICK (Green), ROBBY (Orange), & STEVEN P (Red)
2 - Lauren (Yellow) & Scott (White)
1 - Greg (Blue)

Catacombs (standard set-up w/ ALL expansions).

Catacomb Lord: The DRAGON
The Heroes:
GREG (Barabrian)
ROB (Paladin)
STEVEN P (Ice Princess)
NICK (Witch Hunter)

The Dragon's Dungeon got the best of the group, as the Witch Hunter & Ice Princess ate it halfway thru. DM was kind and let them raise them both (mostly, not all-the-way). They continued and gained the Dragon's Lair, despite losing the Witch Hunter (AGAIN!) and now the Barbarian, the Paladin was able to finish off the psycho charging Dragon and (sort of) win the game for the Heroes!

"Do NOT meddle in the affairs of Dragons!"
