Session Report Aug 7: [Insert Catchy Title Here]
I'm excited about the session last night, but I guess all my creative juices were sucked dry. Rather than wait for a catchy title to come to me, I thought I'd create a simple post and others can add on later.
The session last night was a great. I think we had 10 or 11 folks, including the elusive Kendahl in a nearly farewell appearance. We had a wargamers corner, and they would emerge occasionally for carbonated supplies, and then duck back for more action. Princes of Florence built elaborate villas, the bad-guys showed up with Cash *and* Guns, but not before the bookies had visited Winner's Circle.
Meanwhile, we had a clash of 4 Titans: Amy, Jeff, Brian, and myself. Titan was my only game of the evening. As billed, it's a monster slug-a-thon. Despite a lot of dice, it's clearly a game w/ a lot of skill and learning curve. I liked the game, and I'll play again, but not in the near future. It was a little funny/intimidating that Brian was able to keep track of our stacks better than we were. I think the strategy in this game primarily revolves around movement and recruiting on the main board. The tactical combat strikes me as much less important. I suppose that makes it more of a maneuver & recruit game than a battle game, per se.
I think there were some other games played, too, but I wasn't able to keep track.
