Jesse has been crawling around in this one, and wanted to see how it played with 4. Overly simple with some thought-inducing moments, and surprisingly fun for what it is.

23 - JESSE (Enchantress)
16 - Scott (Archeologist)
15 - Alan (Crusader)
11 - Wheeler Robert (Half-Goblin)

Max requested one of his (& my) favorites to break in his buddy.
I pulled no punches, but shot poorly and they managed to clean out the Grandma-, i mean Lich's lair with only a few nervous moments.

Your Heroes:
JOHN P as the Wizard
LUKE as the Elf
MAX as the Barbarian
STOSH as the Barbarian Paladin
WHEELER ROBERT as the Thief


The Villain:
Scott as the Lich

The guys wanted to break in the new Railways map (Canada).
They seemed to think it played quite well, mines were a hit, ferries only used by one, and they think the Sweet Spot is 4-Player.

66*- ALAN
66 - Steve H
65 - Jeff O
60 - Lansing Rob

* Win via Most Moolah tie-breaker
