This was Gareth’s first outing with this game, Barrie’s second and Jon had played twice before.

Jon started and used his Pillaging Ghouls to set up camp in one corner of the map. Gareth then waded in with some Merchant Orcs which gave him some nice bonuses. Barry then did the Small World equivalent of invading Poland, and took a big chunk out of Gareth’s Orcs with his Dragon-Master Skeletons.

Jon declined almost immediately, keeping all the Ghouls and bringing in some Sorcerors. Gareth then proceeded to wreak his revenge on Barrie (with a touch of encouragement from Jon) and hit back with some Forest Elves, which led to some interesting back-and-forth encounters. (Barrie: “Why don’t you attack Jon’s Sorcerors?” Gareth: “Because you attacked me first…take that!”)

Somewhat surprisingly, Gareth kept the Elves for the rest of the game, as they had some good forest territory and regenerated every turn, bringing in at least 10 points each go. Barrie had a brief flirtation with some Tritons, before ending with a hoard of Ratmen. Jon eventually ditched the waning Ghouls and brought in some Amazons for one final push.

There had been an interesting selection of Races and Abilities on offer during the game, as very few defensive capabilities were available, which was reflected in the slightly lower scores, with the result perhaps closer than some had expected...

Jon 91, Gareth 87, Barrie 74

So it seems that the Elves aren’t quite as namby-pamby as they first appear, and Barrie suffered the same fate as the Third Reich…
