Our Annual Halloween gaming session. Though a push for more costumes, it seems only a few wigs and hats were added to the festivities. Themed games seemed to be down too but were made up by retrofitting existing games to much horror.

This is the first half of the list as I called it early and grabbed the reports from before 8 pm. Scott will add the rest.

The first round of late comers started this classic. Robbie had only played 2-player - a vastly different game while Jessie and Greg were newbeans.

Brian 16
Jesse 14
Alan and Greg 13 each
Robbie 10, vowing to never buy a 3rd bean field again

Three sessions of this one recorded.

Group 1a:
Baron Blade in Rook City. The close quarters of city proved dangerous as Expatriette knocked down not 1, but 2 statuees off the church. Once hurting herself but once knocking down Blade. Heroes won handily as all Heroes took to Blade like a stick to a pinata.

TJ as Legacy with 18 hp remaining
Steve as Tachyon with 20 hp
Mark as Tempest with 19 hp
Greg as Fanatic with 17 hp
Brian as Expatriette with 14 hp

Group 1b:
Sensing BB still had nefarious plans up his sleeve, they chased his alter-ego down to the jungle of Insula Primalis. Fanatic and Expatriette led a new team after him and found they struggled a bit more with this resharpened Blade. Heroes won again but with a rougher struggle losing one of their own this time. Luckily, the Velociraptors helped us on this one.

TJ as Bunker with 11 hp remaining
Steve as Nightmist with 7 hp
Mark as The Argent Adept - incapacitated
Greg as Fanatic with 11 hp
Brian as Expatriette with 12 hp

Group 2:
Battled Omnitron in Insula Primalis. They won as well.

Mike as Legacy with 26 hp remaining
Eric as Mr. Fixer with 21 hp
Kirby as Expatriette with 17 hp

Ryan had this set up most of the day. I saw it played once - Ryan and the new gang, I think? But I don't see a Game Report, so no details. cry
I thought he said they lost, tho.
Might've been played again later, too, not sure.

The Big Event for the day was Andy's dreamchild, Nappy Wars.
They really sunk their teeth into this one. Only scared 1 player away!
Gotta give them credit, tho, this epic required some fortitude! (8 hrs)

4 - MIKE McR (France)
0 - Andy (Russia)
0 - Ryan (Austria/Prussia)
-1 - Padraig (Britain)

I ran a spooky dungeon flick for the kiddies + 2 noobs.
I was pretty merciless (they had an extra player after all), but backed off by letting them skip a room (found a Secret Passage behind a bookcase).
They succeeded in besting my Lich in his lair, but not w/o some sacrifices (mwah-hah-hah).

The Heroes - VICTORIOUS!
Karina as The Barbarian (R.I.P. - killed in final Boss Fight)
Natalie as The Thief - did well with the Invisibility Cloak & Poisoned Dagger
Kyler as The Elf - kept shooting the rampaging Barbarian in the back
Steve H as The Paladin - took TONS of damage for the team
Michael P as The Wizard - great timing with the Teleport Other spell

Overlord Scott as The Lich
They fought lots of skeletons & zombies, 2 rust monsters, some fire spirits, a fearsome Crypt Spider, a Manticore, a trio of Shades, and a bunch of pesky vampire bats and giant beetles.

Looking for a palette cleanser to wind down the night with, we banked on the original W&W. Despite the somewhat dated trivia, always a good time.

10 - GREG (played it safe and it paid off)
0 - Mike McR
0 - Karina
0 - Natalie
0 - Scott
0 - Steve H

The die-hards gave up the ghost on plans for another late late game of Eclipse or Railways, our brains were fried. So we opted for a much shorter horror game to kill off the day. 2 noobs meant a Test Run to teach them, then a Real Effort.

We lost to 8 outbreaks in the Test Run on Easy (only 4 Eps).
Ironically, it was the Yellow Strain that did us in.

But we defeated the micro-invaders handily in the Real Test (on Normal, 5 Eps)

MIKE as the Researcher
ROBBIE as the Scientist
SCOTT as the Dispatcher
STEVE H as the Medic

Another long time favorite (of mine at least) made a reappearance. They really socket to me as I blacked-out on this one. Another chippy game, reminiscent of a previous 7 Wonders game.

Craig (blue - ah that explains it!) 16 cities powered
Steve (red) - 15
Nick (green) - 14
Brian (purple) and Robbie (black, pay attention!) - 10 each

Saved 2 for last since the reports are a nightmare! Looks like Hunter lose. Shadows win, and Allie managed a co-win. I think an X means they died - which looks to be everyone but Allie and Jessica, whoimever she was.

Eric was the Unknown
John the Werewolf
Jessica the Vampire (?)

Kyler was sweet little Allie

Mike Mas was Ellen
Steve was Franklin
Nick was Gregor
Scott was Catehrine

Spooky Tsuro to be exact. Read elsewhere they substituted the dragon stones for spooky minis.

Looks like longest time running:
Robbie (Ghost) and Nick (Dragon) won - why no tie-breaker?
John (Sorcerer)
Scott (Werewolf)
Jessica (Scary Mummy?)
Mike Mas (Werewolf 2?)
Mark (Flaming Skeleton)
Kyler (Ghost 2?) and Eric (Zombie) both knocked out first
