Capture the Flag
A group of us gathered at Dragon’s Lair today at 1:00pm to have a daylight board game session (a very rare occurrence). We decided to take on Doom: The Board Game, but there was to many of us to attempt the campaign mode, so we decided to play a game of Capture the Flag and split into two teams.
The Red team:
Michael (who played two characters) and Rob formed this deadly team.
The Blue team:
Simon, Jeff and I formed this team.
The game started off slow because everyone was just trading kills and neither team was able to gain any significant amount of ground. With one of his characters Michael was able to capture the blue flag, but a rocket slammed into him knocking him back, and a grenade brought him down. The blue flag was than safely returned to it's home.
The game had no change in status until Simon and Jeff were able to make it into the Red base and started battling with the Red team. The Red team quickly moved all of their forces to try to suppress this invasion force and managed to kill both of them, but not without taking a casualty.
While this was going on I was sprinting to the opposite side of the Red base to try and sneak in while they were busy dealing with Simon and Jeff. I managed to make it into the Red base, and I made a mad dash to grab the flag right out from under Michael’s nose and ran right outside of the Red base barely holding onto life. Simon than sacrificed himself by blocking the teleporter so those left inside the Red base could not come out after me.
At this point Jeff had respawned and he was racing down a long hallway to try and help me make it back to the base. The Red team was one move away from killing me and retrieving their flag and it was Jeff’s turn. Jeff was forced to team kill me and than got the flag around a corner and out of the Red team’s range. From this point he was home free and sprinted back to the base with his prize in hand.
I had a good time playing the Capture the Flag portion of Doom, but it was far to hard to score with these rules. The only reason the Blue team won was because of a series of bad roles made by the Red team.
