Played this with Joel and CB. The three player only aspect is interesting. I won but it was close. Joel's ability was to force someone to lead with a suit of his choice twice per game. CB's was the zombie, everyone picks up a card from their previously won trick once per game. And mine was to not follow suit with a 3 or lower card once per game; the lowest card in the game is a 6(?) I assumed you just say it's 3 or lower.

Played a game with Ross. He managed my Kate deck well. I was trying a new HB deck I made with lots of big ice. I took the game but he was able to use Deus X several times by test running, if he had clone chip in there he could've done even more trickery to break my AP's.

Just finished an online FtF match with my opponent in Canada.

I played the Germans with a minimal force possessing 3 powerful MG's.

He played the American paratroopers with mortars and Medium MG's. He split his forces trying to get across the open ground to get to the buildings I was defending.

Last turn of the game he made a mad dash to try to take the buildings, but a condition of his victory was dependent upon having a certain amount of troops left... I widdled him down to prevent his victory!

4 player Trajan. Michael had played before. Andrew and Patrick were playing for the first time. I went with a +2 strategy in the early game followed by getting as many 9 point Trajan tiles. I had one crazy turn where I scored the 9 pointer and activated the senate 3 times for 20 some points I thought I could do it more, but I was overruled by the rules lawyer Tony.

A full boat of 8 players, a battle for life in a sea of death as we tried to get a long, but it was just a matter of time. In such close quarters, there was going to be a fight, and eventually someone was going to die.
We did unspeakable things and this is the only documentation that I’m aware of that puts a few of the horrors I lay witness to.
I saw a child commit atrocities, stealing from people he depended on for protection. A Drunken captain that really seemed like he wanted to save the few remaining passengers, and he couldn’t help but fight with his first mate it was sad and fault over life was not this time not this place.
Did we need this I think not, I even saw a flare gun shot into the chest of another passenger, but the one thing I will take to my grave and this being the only form of proof of the things we did to survive.
We were hungry, there was a child and we couldn't just let one do it. What we were about to do it was all or none, as we would all take this to our grave.
It was difficult at first as we took the only instrument we had to cut, piece by piece. We could feel our strength starting to come back almost immediately, as wrong as we knew it was, we would not survive if we didn't. Even if one of us would make it, it would be a sacrifice we would all make.
WE ATE A HUMAN!!!!!!
2 games played
In the first game Tony won
In the second game by default as everyone died Mark had the best hate card

Tony and I played a game around 50 points.

I had an A-wing and an X-wing he had 3 Tie fighters.

The A-wing boost is awesome and Luke with R2 is a tank. He had an incredible shot on Luke doing 5 damage. It was the A-wing vs. the final Tie and I was hot on his tail finally finishing him off for the win.

Card game night at GameQore so we played Sentinels of the Multiverse.

First match was Legacy (Mark), Tachyon (Andrew), and Ra (Kevin) vs Baron Blade. The Baron went down pretty nice and easily without having to break to much of a sweat.

Second time around we went with Nightmist (Mark), The Fanatic (Kevin), and Absolute Zero (Andrew) vs Citizen Dawn. Citizen Dawn was kicking our butts early on but we wore her down and saved the day in the end.

Mark helped me sort this one out. We went through the quick start that gives the basic play of the game and leaves out a lot of the meat, just for learning the flow pretty much.

I'm not really sure how to take this one, I think it really needs the entire game to really understand and appreciate the game.
Not sure if there's another game I could compare it to. You have to protect your keeps and attack the opponents keeps - There seems to be a balance needed between heroes and when to defend vs attack - There's three paths to victory and through our little test run Mark just killed me

Several games played
2 player
Steve C. vs Tony
4 player
Claudette, Brian, Steve C. and Tony
4 player
Michael, Brian, Steve C. and Tony

And my head is spinning several blogs show that several building cards have errors in the printing as confirmed by the designer.

One card i really didn't understand how it worked and now that I do it is a mighty powerful card another card that says you always draw 2 cards when you plot and per the designer that's suppose to be an additional plot action so at the end of the plot action you can launch the ability and draw an additional two cards.
another card that Brian I think used both times (Building) has a block that indicates when to use the card although the card should be always active.

OK so everyone's wondering who won
1st game was a tie, the tie breaker is who has the most building I won that game
the second and third game Brian came out on top.

played two 5 player games, the first bad girl was from the expansion and it was a tough going at the beginning she flipped the first round after a few rounds we felt we didn't stand a chance but like any good group of supers we fought on and in the end we all survived and beat the baddie the second game was mother earth and we had the right match of heroes that just tore her a new one
heroes two wins

Tournament Saturday

1st Cates (Kate)(NBN)
2nd Jordan (Andromeda)(Weyland)
3rd JP
4th Pedraum
5th Michael
6th John
6th Andrew
8th Joe

In the final against Jordan I was NBN against his Andromeda. I had a Wall of Static up that kept him out of HQ. I was able to Jackson Howard a AstroSript in to my hand and ditch other agendas. He took a bunch of tags running R&D with a Hunter (three of them). I played a Big Brother to give him two more then played a psychographics to score a three point agenda from my hand. He ran my hand twice breaking the Wall of Static and derezing it. I had three cards, one was an AstroScript that he didn't pull. Then I fast advanced the AstroScript for the win. 7-1

We switched sides and I ran with my Kate replicator deck against Weyland. I needed 1 point to win the match since I came in the higher seed. First turn I index for the win but there were no agendas to be found in the top five cards. This gave me a few turns to build my rig. I got Darwin out with three R&D interfaces, two Cyberfeeders and three Personal Touches on Darwin with the help of Inside Man and Replicator. I ran R&D a couple times on the way up and finally hit a 3 point agenda for the win.

We played it out and the next turn he was about to play Sea Source and Double Scorched Earth to flatline me and had enough money to force it.
