Since no one was hosting a gaming event this weekend, Sarah and I hosted a last minute event on Saturday at our house. We started at 2:00 and played until about 1:00 AM.

Thanks to Tim Comfort for bringing over an extra table and chairs. They got alot of use.

Since there is no event next weekend, and we have Tim's table. We'll repeat the event next Saturday, but we'll start at 1:00 PM.

4. Board Game: Dune [Average Rating:7.63 Overall Rank:215]

I've been dying to play a game of Dune, and managed to talk a few people into it. We struggled through the rules. They are not complicated, but there are a fair number of details for new players to remember, and I haven't played in over a year. I plan on busting this one out again soon, and I'll download some player aid sheets from the geek.

Once we got through the rules. The game played fast. I think it took an Hour and a Half to play. We only had 4 players though, I think it plays best with 6.

At the beginning of the game, the Harkonnen and Atreides players were trying to harvest the same spice blows, and this led to some less than friendly skirmishes. The Fremen built up their forces and rode a Sandworm to within striking distance of Carthag and Arakeen. The Guild and Fremen agreed to ally with each other while the Harkonnen and Atredeis were forced into an unlikely alliance in order to better survive.

The Fremen/Guild alliance had greater military resources and planned a quick kill for victory. The Harkonnen leader had anticipated this coup, and revealed his payroll to his Atreides ally. 4 Guild leaders and 1 Fremen were traitors and would grant devastating losses to said factions if they were deployed against the Atreides or Harkonnen.

The Fremen launced massive assaults against both Carthag and Arakeen, while the Harkonnen/Atredeis alliance dispatched multiple 'Suicide Ornithopter Bombs' to flush out the traitors. While the Atredeis/Harkonnen faction managed to win a minor battle against the Guild with this strategy, they were unable to flush the Fremen traitor, and lost 3 battles to the mighty Fremen Warmachine. In addition, they missed an opportunity to win an almost guaranteed battle against the Guild stronghold Tuek's Sietch.

Final Score

Fremen(Tim Condit)/Guild(Anthony) - 4 Strongholds

Atreides(Travis)/Harkonnen(Juaquin) - 1 Stronghold

I still didn't have all the rules down by the end of the game, but it was fun, and I'd like to try it again. Crazy and unique.
