4/7 Saturday + Session Report + Rambling = fractal chaos
Ha! Ben, beat you to it. Anyone interested in gaming this Saturday? I could play between early am, and 2'ish pm. I'd like to try Die Macher if there is enough interest (I know Ben loves this game). If not on Saturday, maybe next Monday?
4/2 Session report? Jon and I played Epic BattleLore. As always, whenever I have a creature, it meets a premature death. My Hill Giant's hammer was left longing for skulls to crack. Oh, and never forget to fear the BattleLore card. It can be very very nice when you are within range of multiple units that are down to a single figure. After that we played Princes of Florence (I felt like my brain had been dipped in molasses until I finally 'got it'), Hermagor (Michael loved this game... NOT!.... I like the game, so please don't sabotage the group to keep me from trying it again in the future; I want to try it again with the first player determined by the low-numbered tile), and Smarty Party (ahhhh....sports categories, my bane).
I laughed my ass off with all of them (my PoF multiple-park strategy rules!, Michael's Attention Deficit Disorder leading to a screwup and a restart on Hermagor, Mr Milkshake dude and Big Mac Daddy as McDonald characters in Smarty Party), so yes, all were GG's. A break from the hardships of real life... that is what gaming to me is all about. As I stepped out of DL, I went back to worrying about my house which I'm trying to sell, the house I need to buy at Galveston, wife demanding more attention, dog running in the backyard that had just been sprayed with herbicide, sad report on Newsweek about the service men/women that have died in the war, etc etc. Here's to hoping the Houston game group provides the same 'tonic'.
