Sentinels of the Multiverse
We played one game of this at night against La Capitan and won. A big help came from Dark Visionary allowing us to avoid Raiding Party twice. Cosmic’s constructs were never destroted–even Battle Forged couldn’t kill them because of Cosmic Crest. The T-Rex’s did some damage but Visionary Wrested the Mind of one of them. Sky-Scraper’s links wreaked some havoc for the villain and the Scholar got a few hits in and helped everyone play cards. Eventually Ra put out Imbued Fire and two Obsidian fields came out, speeding up the game considerably as we tore away at La Capitan after flipping her back from being Split Across Time.
The next day, Eitan, Kevin and Yehuda played four games, three of them with David. They defeated Apostate, but lost to Chairman thanks too a poorly timed Prison Riot. They won against Citizen Dawn but lost to the Matriarch.
One Deck Dungeon
David and I started a game against the Scorpion as Paladin and Slayer, but after two floors we had to stop. He had most of the Magic while I had lots of Dexterity and we both had some Strength. We had to use a few potions along the way but still had some in reserve for the final floor and the boss.
Jonathan and I played a round, and made too many mistakes. Then David joined and we did quite well, scoring 22 (5-5-5-5-2). The red pile was the one we failed at, taking a long time to get a red one, and the other Red 2 being the last card in the deck.
Great Western Trail
Realizing there was a lot to explain, I didn’t go through every last icon, but just the neutral buildings. Sure enough, after a couple turns people seemed to know at least how to move around. Developing a plan is something else. Only one Engineer was available early on, so I focused on Cowboys. Nechama and Kevin raced up the train track, claiming Station Master tiles. Jonathan and Nechama got some builders and focused a bit on getting powerful buildings. Kevin didn’t employ much but set up some nice combos with his buildings and had a lot of tiles to complete objectives. I definitely got a head start on improving my cattle deck. In the end, Kevin and I were the only ones to make it to San Francisco. I had some deliveries to other high point cities, and finished with 105 but Kevin did quite well at 93. Way better than my test game against my self of 77-74. John and Nechama were close to each other but lower down, at 48-44.
Kevin really liked GWT and would even consider buying it. Considering I only bought it cause 365 had it cheaper than AliExpress, I’m glad it was a hit in the end.
