C I'm very excited with this challenge...

S I hope to increase my H-index...

T I anticipate that more than half of my gameplay will be solo.

X I'm gonna try to take pictures as often as I can.



Some games will be more difficult than others to bring on the table 10 times...
So you will find a dice associated with each item...
1 = easy / 6 = hard

6 / This is my biggest challenge. I hope to introduce this fantastic game to my friends Alain and Antoine


GAME 1: January 25
STANDARD GAME: Solo - Earn the most credits in 30 turns.
PILOT: Whynoms Level 2 - (never found his home culture)
TOTAL CREDITS: c2580
FAME: 45
PASSENGER: 5 (c810)

At turn 10:

At turn 30:



GAME 2: January 26
CLASSIC GAME (First time) Solo: try to get 2000 credits within 30 turns.
I managed to reach c2000 at the last turn.
PILOT: Quossuth
TOTAL CREDITS: c2130
PASSENGER: 1 (c150)

At turn 30:


The Classic game is more straightforward but I missed the missions/rewards with the Standard version...


GAME 3: April 17
Solo Challenge
Defeated at the start of the 17th turn (c0)

Defeated in attempted to resolve this challenge:

"13-Here and There: Be transported by telegates twice in the same turn"

Pirates forced me to stop my movement phase just before reaching the telegates... I didn't have enough credit to continue...



I think that simply attempting to maximize profits within 30 rounds fits more with me... I like to explore while trying to complete missions, earning fame without the constraint of the challenge cards... It's more fun for me.


GAME 4: April 17
STANDARD GAME: Solo - Earn the most credits in 30 turns.
PILOT: HUMAN Level 2 - (never found his home culture)
FAME: (46) c920 (Fuzzy Dice 2x)
PASSENGER: (3) c540
REWARD - TOP SHELF MECHANIC: c180
TOTAL CREDITS: c2430



Sorry for the "Supergiant" effect

NEXT TIME: ASTEROID SYSTEM TELEGATE(OPTIONAL RULE)


GAME 5: April 22
STANDARD GAME: Solo - Earn the most credits in 30 turns.
PILOT: Whynoms Level 3
FAME: 55
PASSENGERS: 6
MISSIONS: 8
TOTAL CREDITS: c3770

The Asteroid System telegate is a must!!!

1 / This should be the easiest of all... I have so much fun playing these games, mostly solo. I just got Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon Board Game as a christmas gift from my GF.





GAME 1: January 3
ADVENTURE 2 - Monster hunt (solo)(Victory)
HERO: VISTRA (Dwarf Fighter)

The final blow





GAME 2: January 11
ADVENTURE 9 - Gauntlet of Terror (solo)(Victory)
HERO: ARJHAN (Dragonborn Fighter)

Defeated 22 monsters... 1HP remaining. Didn't used any healing surge.
2 Gargoyles have leave the dungeon and rampaged through the streets of Barovia...







GAME 3: January 12
ADVENTURE 8 - Horror of the Howling (solo)(Defeat)
HEROES: ARJHAN, THORGRIM, KAT and IMMERIL

Almost made it... But THORGRIM got killed by the event-attack KING TOMESCU'S PORTAL.

I've tried the "Castle Ravenloft Revised" with no healing surge... I love it!!! As the exploration phase is included in the hero phase (very simple changes indeed). It makes the gameplay less "scripted", more freedom and more fun.





GAME 4: March 9
ADVENTURE 1 - A life in a day of a hero (solo / Victory)
HERO: KEYLETH (Elf Paladin)



===Revised Rules===
1)Hero phase includes the Exploration Phase of a new tile.
2)You may move a partial amount of your speed and attack, and then keep moving the remainder of your speed, even after exploring.
*No Healing Surge







GAME 5: March 9
ADVENTURE 3 - Roghar's Gear (solo)(DEFEATED)
HERO: HESKAN(Dragonborn Wizard)

Used 2 Healing Surge, died after the 5th tile was revealed... A Volcanic Burst + an Grell attack, got rid of the Wizard.






GAME 6: March 10
ADVENTURE 3 - Roghar's Gear (solo)(DEFEATED)
HERO: TARAK(Half-Orc Rogue)

Used 2 Healing Surge... Legion Devil popped twice... Traps and Curses were difficult to get rid.






GAME 7: March 10
ADVENTURE 3 - Roghar's Gear (solo)(*VICTORY)
HEROE: VISTRA (Dwarf Fighter)

*Revised Rules with 2 Healing Surge







GAME 8: March 14
ADVENTURE 1: Exile (solo win)
HERO: DRIZZT DO'URDEN(Drow Ranger) L2

Drizzt finaly escape from the Underdark... A big Feral Troll was blocking the way to the exit... Drizzt manage to get rid of the Troll by using "BELT of STORM GIANT STRENGTH" combine with a CRITICAL HIT dealing 4 damage at once!!!







GAME 9: October 22-23
ADVENTURE 4 - The Mysterious Chamber (solo)(DEFEATED)
HERO: TARAK(Half-Orc Rogue)

Never found the mysterious chamber entrance...










GAME 10: October 24
ADVENTURE 4 - The Mysterious Chamber (solo)(DEFEATED)

2 / I got this game via a recent trade... I have 2 characters ready for the Burnt Offerings adventure... But I think i'm gonna restart with new characters to give me more options...

I ordered Adventure Deck 2 & 3 to celebrate this challenge


Game 1 - January 7
Scenario 1: Brigandoom (solo)
Character: HARSK + SEONI
Location: 4/4 closed
Capture Jubrail Vhiski in the woods... Life or death situation for Harsk who has only 2 cards left in his hand and none in his deck pile... He succeeded the check with 2D8 to beat the vilain... Ouf!!!



Game 2 - January 20
Scenario 2: THE POISON PILL (solo)(G)
Character: HARSK + SEONI
Location: 4/4 closed
Blessing card: 9 cards remaining
Capture Pillbug Podiker at the City Gate



Game 3 - February 16
Scenario 3: BLACK FANG'S DUNGEON (solo)(Defeated)
Character: HARSK + SEONI
Location: 2/4 closed
Blessing card: 0

SEONI was unable to close SHRINE TO LAMASHTU because she didn't have any blessing card left to meet the WHEN CLOSING condition... Harsk knew that BLACK FANG was coming next... But with 2 locations still open and one last card in the blessing deck, the adventure was over...




Game 4 - JULY 25
Scenario 1: Brigandoom (solo)(Defeated)
Character: MERISEL (going alone)
Location: 1/3 closed
Blessing card: 11/30

When attempting closing the FARHOUSE, MERISEL got severely damaged by WEREWOLF... She encounter him again the next turn... She died without a good fight... What a shame...


Never won a scenario with only one character yet.



Game 5 - JULY 25
Scenario 1: Brigandoom (solo)(Defeated)
Character: MERISEL (going alone)
Location: 1/3 closed
Blessing card: 13/30

Same result... I think I'm done trying with only one character




Game 6 - JULY 27
Scenario 3: BLACK FANG'S DUNGEON (Victory)
Character: HARSK + SEONI
Location: 3/4 closed
Blessing card: 28/30

SEONI was able to temporarily close the Temple while Harsk beats BLACK FANG for a second time... Cornered him at the Shrine to Lamashtu. Yeah!!!



Game 7 - SEPTEMBER 25
Adventure: Burnt Offering
Scenario 1: Attack on Sandpoint (solo)(G)
Character: KYRA + VALEROS
Location: 4/4 closed
Blessing card: 25/30

DEFEATED RIPNUGGET & STICKFOOT AT THE CITY GATE

5 / I hope to further explore this game... Without knowing why, I've played very little...


Game 1 - January 18
Solo (Victory)
Ancient One: YOG-SOTHOTH
12/12 ELDER SIGNS
INVESTIGATORS:
1) Michael McGlen (Devoured)
2) Jenny Barnes (has sealed away Yog-Sothoth)




Game 2 - January 19
Solo (Victory)
Ancient One: HASTUR
DOOM TRACK: One doom token remaining
13/13 ELDER SIGNS
INVESTIGATOR:
Vincent Lee, the Doctor has sealed Hastur away.




Game 3 - April 14
Solo (Devoured)
Ancient One: SHUB-NIGGURATH
2/12 ELDER SIGNS

INVESTIGATORS DEVOURED:
1) Joe Diamond
2) Harvey Walters
3) Monterey Jack (Battle against SHUB-NIGGURATH)


The dice were against me... No control early in the game. It was very frustrating ... Meh, it gave me a chance to battle against the ancient one... A dice fest that of course, I didn't win.

The scariest thing is that I don't even want a rematch!!! For now!!!



Game 4 - April 15
Solo (Victory)
Ancient One: HASTUR
13/13 ELDER SIGNS
INVESTIGATOR:
"Ashcan" Pete, the Drifter has sealed Hastur away

Easy win!!! So I guess I had my revenge


Game 5 - August 9
Solo (Victory)
Ancient One: CTHULHU
13/13 ELDER SIGNS
INVESTIGATOR:
Sister Mary, the nun, has easily sealed Cthulhu away (only 4 doom token on the doom track)
----------------------------------------
I used "Search The Lost & Found" and "Buy a souvenir" a couple of time. It was very useful.


I was very lucky with this Adventure card:


It was a very fun game.

I'm not sure that this is a game I'd play 10 times per year... A couple of times would be enough and fun.

3 / Last addition... Received it december 30th. Never played. I love the theme, the mechanics (Race + DB + WP) and it has a solitaire version.


GAME 1: January 1
Solo / Easy level / Defeat / Mackenzie arrives at Fort Clatsop before me... By one space!!!



GAME 2: January 2
Solo / Easy level / Victory / Great combo at the end to move up to 12 spaces... Mackenzie was really close to Fort Clatsop.





GAME 3: January 24
Solo / Easy level / Victory / Great end of game with the help of James Mackay... Mackenzie was at 2 moves from Fort Clatsop.





GAME 4: February 25
Solo - Level: +2 moves for Mackenzie - Victory - Mackenzie was at 1 move from Fort Clatsop.



I used the "Farewell Area" (Discard the 5 Character cards from the Journal of Encounters) for the first time... That gave me access to new powerfull cards like "Twisted Hair". I also used the discount on the back of the discard card on Recruitment phase.

I love the fact that you're creating combo to win a race instead of reaching for the most victory points... That Mackenzie guy can give you a really good challenge.


GAME 5: February 26
Solo - Level: +3 moves for Mackenzie - Defeated - Mackenzie arrive first at Fort Clatsop. I had to camped one space before Fort Clatsop because of One too many Indian in my expedition...



GAME 6: March 2

I was eager to try a 2 player game of Lewis & Clark...
I showed this very fine game to my friend Alain. He focused a lot on recruiting indian and forgot to optimized his deck of cards. He wasted a lot of time on reorganizing his camp... I really enjoyed this as 2 player...

I also realized that I been making a big rule error in the village actions. In HORSE TRADE and CANOE MANUFACTURING you need 1 different indian for each transaction. For 2 canoes you need 2 indians et 4 wood. I thought that only one indian was able to trade up to 3 horses or canoes... I think that this is HUGE!!!

I guess it's gonna be a bit much harder to beat MacKenzie the next time And it's a good thing!!!

This 2 player game made me appreciate Lewis & Clark even more.

Forgot my iPad... No picture


I received my stickers!!!



GAME 7: April 12
Solo(defeated) / Easy level / Mackenzie arrives at Fort Clatsop before me... I was 6 spaces behind.



GAME 8: April 12
Solo(win) / Easy level / Big combo at the end...



Always fun trying to find new combo... Take note, this game can be very prone to analysis paralysis... It's a very good solo game.


GAME 9: July 15
Solo - Easy level (+2 moves for Mackenzie) Victory - Mackenzie was at 1 move from Fort Clatsop.





GAME 10: July 15
Solo - Level: +3 moves for Mackenzie - Defeated - Mackenzie arrived first at Fort Clatsop. I'm 12 spaces behind... Didn't find any combo for the mountains... Horses are too slow.

So glad I got this expansion. It makes the game a little bit shorter but harder... There is 7 tiles less than usual (setup). The Bonus and Challenge tiles are a nice twist... They can bring nice jumps on reputation or income. And what about those borders??? They forces me to change and rethink the game... I love it!!!





GAME 9: MAY 1



Solo - The lone architect (Suburbia inc)
POPULATION:89

Without the borders (I forgot)... And this is my best solo score ever



GAME 10: MAY 3



Solo - The lone architect (Suburbia inc)
POPULATION:67
