I got together with 5 of my friends (Andrew, Brian, Dave, Evan, and Udit) and had a day full of board games from the morning until night. Here's the rundown.
|Go green empire!|
|Getting crowded on the east coast.|
Next we moved on to something meatier in Power Grid, a fun bidding / resource management game. Definitely worth the time we put into it, Andrew and I were leading and he pulled out a win in the end.
Dead of Winter
Next up was a new zombie survival game called Dead of Winter. Five of us played, each of us starting out controlling two characters. The goal is to complete the main scenario public objective and each of us complete our personal secret objective. Eventually it looked like a couple of us were going to win but Dave's secret objective was "Serial Killer" and he killed a bunch of people in the last turn and let the zombies overrun the colony so he could win.
|My dudes, the principal and sheriff.|
|Zombies swarming the hospital!|
|Things not looking good at the Police Station.|
Mansions of Madness
Brian had to leave so we ended the evening with a game of Mansions of Madness, an Arkham Horror type game (Praise Cthulhu!). Evan was the Keeper and the rest of us investigators into the weird happenings at a local university building.
|The intrepid investigators!|
|Dave locked in freezer and going crazy. Good times.|
|He's really, really locked in.|
|The beginning of my character's descent to insanity...|
- afraid of the dark (in a game where my opponent's main ability was to kill the lights)
- afraid of enclosed spaces
- afraid of doorknobs on doors ("the house is alive!")
- afraid of other people ("they are all demons!")
- afraid of monsters... in a monster hunting game.
Yet still better off than Dave who ran into a stairwell and blew his brains out.
|Get the witch!|
|Hobo with a shotgun.|
