Hours: 8.5

Games Played: 6

Food Consumed:
1.67 Pizza
1 Bowl of PBPs

Alcohol consumed:
1 Growler of Kelsey Vineyards Scrumpy Cider
2 cans of Guinness
6 cans of Bud Light
6 bottles of Ace Pineapple Cider
5 bottles of Angry Orchard Cider

So after a long break we finally got a formal Game Day in. We tried last month and that really didn't work out but with the three day holiday weekend we were able to get together. We finally got a game of Eldritch Horror in with Chris after spending a year trying to get him to play it. It was an incredibly intoxicated and highly entertaining day full of gaming. A triumphant return to form!

For the results of the last game day go here:
Ninth Game Day

I ended up going with Yog-Sthoth. I had never played against him before and looking through his mysteries there seemed to be a lot of spell related stuff, so I chose the waitress for my character. I stacked the mythos deck with all the easy mythos cards and chose the Doomsayer from Antarctica prelude because I really enjoyed the Antarctica Side Board.

It took us a good four hours but we ended up getting the win. I forgot about the omen track causing the doom track to go down when gates match it so we kinda fudged the doom track down by about 6 or so late in the game. Then right as we solved the third mystery, that mythos cards caused Yog-Sthoth to awaken and so now we had to do the finaly mystery as well which was just to kill an epic monster which wasn't too bad. I had gotten Plumb the Void towards the end so I was able to teleport our monster killer there pretty quickly.

Everyone had a lot of fun.

Result: Group Victory

Everyone but Chris had played this and Mike was eager to play it again so we broke it out. It was a nice diversion after the length of Eldritch and worked perfectly for our pizza break as well. We played two games (because you have to).


Result: Mike and Chris shared Victory
2nd Game: Victory for Mike

I was the only one who had played this one so far and I was curious to see how this would go over. As a group we haven't played any negotiation or bluffing games yet, so this was vastly different than what we are used to. I really like the game but it is definitely dependent on the group you play with. I'd like to see it come out again with our group but I don't see it coming out again with my family.

Result: Victory for Corey

I was really hoping to show Chris Brewcrafters but after Sheriff he said he didn't have a whole lot of time left. So we decided to get this one out. This is one of our new favorites amongst Me, Mike and Darren and Chris had never played. We also had never played it with more than 2 players so it was a whole different game this time. We all really enjoyed it and it doesn't take too long. This really is a fantastic game.

Result: Victory for Mike

So after Chris left, I was looking through the library and we decided to show Darren Bruges. Mike and I had already played it and I really liked it and it doesn't take too long. I'm fascinated by this game with how all the different mechanics work together so well. Mike once again went with a canal strategy and it payed off for him pretty big with a lucky draw in the last round. I did miserably and felt I could never get the right cards but I still very much enjoy the game.

Result: Victory for Mike

I was really hoping to get this one played since we had exactly four people and I need to get it off of my unplayed list.
