May 17th, 2016: Angels and Demons

Crew Members: Zevvy, David W.

Did David M. suddenly become an evil twin brother version of himself?

No! Is David more than one person? No! (except in the game we played tonight). Someone actually found our website on google! Welcome to the crew, David.

Dominion

Zevvy – 42, David – 34

David had played Dominion before but not much, though he quickly picked up the new cards we were playing with. A combination of Hamlets and Menagerie’s made it easy to buy Peddlers, and David quickly picked up 8 of them. I went with a first round Bishop, which gave me more Victory point tokens, but David got two Provinces and a Duchy before I even got one. Twice I bought Rabble and twice I drew it with Bishop and only one action, so they both got trashed for points. But in the end my 20 Victory Point tokens brought me ahead to Victory, as David ended the game buying all the Hamlets, Menageries and Peddlers.

Sentinels of the Multiverse

Zevvy – Fanatic (Incapacitated), Omnitron-X: 10, David – The Sentinels – Idealist: 11, Writhe: 13, Mainstay: 13, Dr. Medico: 12

Villain – Apostate: DEFEATED

Environment: Realm of Discord

Led by Fanatic on a quest for righteousness, our heroes descended into the Realm of Discord, the borderlands of Hell itself, to face the Demon Lord Apostate himself. But in her zealousness, Fanatic over-esitmated her abilities, and performed a Divine Sacrifice. With the responsibility to protect all four Sentinels from attack, Fanatic quickly became a Fallen Angel. Omnitron-X had a hard time getting set up as Apostate destroyed his fragile components, but slowly the Senintels began to bring out their Signature abilities. As the heroes took down Apostate’s Relics one by one, the ambient Explosive Bubbles served as a continuous annoyance to Apostate himself. Tension rose when our equipment came to life and was in danger of destruction, but the Imbued Vitality was soon replqced with Imbued Frailty, raising the stakes for everyone. Some heavy hitting from the Sentinels and some Focused Plasma from Omnitron-X cut through Apostate’s defenses, and soon he was out of precious Relics to rely on. Monitron’s Reactive Plating and Writhe’s powers of redirection allowed the Portal Fiends to direct their psychic blasts back at Apostate, leading our heroes to victory, though Fanatic was in serious need of Dr. Medico’s care. Battered but not beaten, our heroes returned from the Realm of Discord to fight another day.

David has played many games and likes co-op and well illustrated games, so Sentinels was a hit. Hopefully we can work out scheduling better so more people can make it next time, and try out some of the games Liz brought back from the US.
