Crew Members: Nuri, David T., Zevvy, Juliana, David M., Phil, David H., (Finbarr)
We had quite a full house tonight, and Nuri graciously fed us Napoleon cake, Waffle cookies, and Hobgoblin. But like Hansel and Gretel, we would soon learn the truth about The Black Witch (Nuri’s beer), and not everyone would survive….
We played concept while waiting for people to show up. For some reason we had a hard time guessing Juliana’s word “Karaoke”, but David T. saved the day. He also guessed my “Crossword Puzzle” and Nuri’s red, religious drink–Wine, of course…
Betrayal at the House on the Hill
Since we had a lot of players we went with Betrayal, and pretty soon we were exploring this creepy house. David H. lost his batteries and while looking for some help got taken to the basement with Nuri and her dog companion, where they met up with Phil. The Haunt was delayed quite a bit, but shortly after I swapped out with David M. the Haunt began. Nuri was the betrayer, and had voodoo dolls of each of us. We had to find the dolls before Nuri killed too many of us. After giving each player a clue, she also revealed that all the necessary rooms had been discovered, but it was still a race against time (and Nuri’s psychotic desire to now kill all her former friends). When all but one doll had been found, David H. gave dynamite to Juliana who tossed it into the room with Nuri and David M., but while it finished of David, Nuri was still breathing. The game ended at that point with half the players dead, though technically Nuri had to kill more than half, it as quite a long and spooky game.
Game 1: David H. – 34, Zevvy – 26, Nuri – 25., Phil – 24, David M. – 19
New players picked this up pretty quick, and David H. had a breakaway with Dumplings, while Nuri and I fought over Sashimi and both lost out. David H. also managed to get one pudding, saving him from -6 points at the end and winning with a good lead.
Game 2: Nuri – 39, David M. – 35, Phil – 34, David H. -25, Zevvy -24
Most of the pudding got used up early, and I gave David M. the last pudding, but Nuri still won, having gotten Sashimi and the Squid Wasabi combo, as well as some Dumplings. In the last round David h. and I had a Maki war which he won, and though he was stuck with the least pudding he still had more points that I did.
David T. spent most of the night helping us make characters–as of now we will have a Wizard, Druid and Warlock–a spell heavy group.
