Game Night Aug 27, 2008

So it's been quite a long time since I posted to my blog. Mostly this blog was meant as an experiment for me and I had kinda figured I wouldn't keep it going for long (I know me you see). But tonight at our gaming group my friends gave me some grief about it and so I am returning the blog to action.

Our group are true gamers and that means we love all kinds of games. As a result we go through a lot of phases, playing a certain game we all like for a period of time and then switching off to something different when it takes our fancy. Lately we have been playing Warmachine and Hordes from Privateer Press. It is a very fun game with some absolutely gorgeous models (albeit some very difficult to assemble ones).

Tonight Neil and Eric had a Hordes match, Neil's Trollbloods vs. Eric's Circle. Tom, Darron and myself played a three way game. Darron had Skorne, Tom took Cygnar and I had my Cryx. I didn't see much of Eric and Neil's game apart from the outcome which was Neil losing (as usual, sorry Neil... Troops will help, honest). Our three way game was a lot of fun with some very difficult situations. Trying to deal with two opponents at the same time is very difficult but enjoyable, it makes you think even harder about the little things that make Warmachine/Hordes unique from other miniature wargames. In the end I lost first and the outcome wasn't certain between Tom and Darron before we had to pack up for the night (though I think Darron had the upper hand).

All in all it was another great gaming night.
