Well as promised, we plan to track again! I think we still have Simons predictions somewhere (hint copy here please).


As mentioned we are planning to mix up Warmahordes and others, X-wing seems popular, so lots of little games that could be won or lost on a knife edge.

Game one for me was a 15 point clash between my circle (eKaya) vs Ray and Menoth (pSeverius). I'd like to say close game but I was outplayed, second game was an introduction game with a new face, nice to see you and welcome from us all, me Khador vs Menoth and we tried as many rules as we could, doing fine until Ray,in an advising capacity, pulled out a very nasty move for the win. Well impressed!

So start as plan to go on,


Gary.  0 - 0 - 2




Totals:

 

Gary 12-11-24.5

Mike 12 - 7 - 26

Simon 14-5-15

Game one of the year.

warmachine vs hordes against CJ

good game to start learning the rules again but ultimately you have to follow your plan.

if you have a shooty army then damn well shoot.

Simon  0-0-3

Beardy Power Gamers (will be known as BPG or BloodAngels in future)  6-0-0

Tonight gentlemen, we re-wrote history. Luke Skywalker died before he reached the Death Star! However apparently just because his name was plastered on the side it doesn't mean he was piloting the damn thing, the clue was that R2 was in the other one. Doh.


Gary 1-0-3

Finally managed to play X-wing.  Ryan showed me the quick start rules, and I won the basic game as Rebels. I then called an end to my gaming year, and declared myself happy with my 100% win/loss record (miniatures only, card games don't count).

Unfortunately, nobody else agreed with this decision (I've asked for a Judicial review), so I was made to play a few more games, with predictable results.

 

So...

 

Simon (pending result of judicial review) 1-0-6

So as I have said all count, Ryan has just beaten me again at X-wing. He has found the imperial winning tactic and I helped by using the dice with 8 blank sides. That means he is winning 3-1 at home.

At what stage do I ban him? I cannot use the its my ball you can't play theory as its his!

Another game, another loss, and fully [email protected]&ked off with Warmachine.

Just don't get it, and can't see the combos others take for granted.

Me and Mike played until time ran out, Cassius vs the He/She. Still picking up the rules in certain areas so slow going.

Played a D&D dungeon bash board game (forget the name), and I/we won!  Mike died in the final room, but according to the rules "the heroes if they get to the final room and get the treasure" (or something like that), so he won as well.

 

So that's another game I can't ever play again! ;)

Mike, you need to play more games like that. Name your characters xxxxxxxx the Everlasting and equip with whatever the local equivalent of a resurrection orb is. Then sacrifice every game and still get result.

I played Ray at the World of Twilight (hairy/undead need not apply) and thoroughly enjoyed. Played the starter scenario as both factions and won them both. As Simon says, in theory I should stop with a winning record but I'd really like to continue with this system for a while.

Why, oh why, oh why do we play this silly game?

A full weekend of suffering to other people's dice. I didn't play badly, or roll awfully. I witnessed some people have games with dice I can only dream about.

Traditional Moodygit moan over.

Enjoyed weekend, thanks to holders for what appeared to be a successful event. Hope to see some at ARBBL and intrigue on how the southern league cup thing goes.

Personally came in the bottom five with a 1-2-3 weekend, scoring made it very tight at lower end of table. At least my next teams Halflings so onward and upward.

Why oh why do I not take it serious. Because I would rather laugh than cry.

so a great weekend with some fun games and thank you to my opponents for not being to serious.

So the tally to date 2-3-9


i just have to win a few games and I am on par with Gary!

Only slightly better than Gary, with a 2/2/2, but that was good enough for 15th out of 33 - after day 2, I'll take top half!

Due to sickness only played a couple of games of Cthulhu munchkin. Normally wouldn't count them, but as I made Mike suffer, two more losses for the pile. However as I am Cthulhu's high cultist I should automatically win, but as its a secret I'll let them have their small victories. As we all know Cthulhu plays the long game.

Amazing how we all had nine losses at the same time.
