Yesterday at the wargames club I played a couple of board games instead of putting any figures on the table.
The main game was of Eldritch horror. It did last most of the day and playing co-operatively we tried to thwart the plans of Shubb-Niggurath and to be honest we did come pretty close, but the "Mother of a thousand young" or the "Black Goat of the woods" or any of her other names was not beaten. Instead a world wide apocalypse ensured and all of human kind was destroyed.
I got lucky and did win the game through the use of flower shops and French restaurants! Ok that is maybe an over simplification but the tactics behind the win were sound in that I always went for a spread of numbers between 1 and 13 on 2d6. So that whatever I rolled something would come up rather than just concentrating on the 6-8 number range. So a good easy fun game and a lot of fun for me as I won and my town had an airport before the other two more experienced players got a radio station! They did explain the game and give me a few hints along the way but somehow I know Ian will start to use my very negative French restaurants tactics to leech money from other players next time.
Sorry no Painting this time, maybe in a couple of days!
