Raiders 18 (31/03/2012)

The day was full of games that Iíd not played before, except for the last game which Iíd only played once before.

Lords of Waterdeep (BBG)

Gamers/score:  Crazyfrog 86, Carl 90, Alan 104, Zarniwoop 123, Pete 123 (won under tie breaker)
My first time for playing this game which I think was the shops demo copy.  A resource gathering game in which you complete quests to gain VPís

Alien frontiers  { The Dicey Spacey Game }

Gamers/score: Zarniwoop 6, Carl 7, Roy 7, Crazyfrog 8 (won)

A game in which you roll dice (yes I know amazingly I was quite good at it lol) and assign them to resources each round, each resource has x slots and once these are filled by other players you cannot assign to them.  At the start of each round you reclaim your dice and roll again.  You get VPís for landing on the planet and occupying areas, each of these sectors gives you a bonus function.

A great game and I want to play it again. It is very easy to pick up even for non gamers and within 2 rounds you will be into the full swing of it.

Undermining (BBG)

Gamers/score: Carl, Zarniwoop, Roy (won), Crazyfrog

You each have a Under Mining Vehicle (UMV) and have to mine into the planet to gather resources which you cash in on the surface for upgrades or VPís.  The VPís are 3 piles that decrease in value, so there are a definite advantage to getting them early, when one of these piles is empty the game ends.  Some of the resources are alien tech which will give a onetime only boost to the UMV.

Roy won with speedy cashing in resources for VPís from the start.  I was trying lots of upgrading, alien tech and had a very fast UMV at the end which possible could have started to overhaul everyone if the game have lasted another x rounds.

The only problem I can see after playing the game once is.  Is the only good strategy just to get the VPís from the start and ignore the upgrades etc, due to the advantage of having the high pointed VPís first.

Another great game and I want to play it again.

Gubs (BBG)

Gamers/score: Carl, Zarniwoop, Roy, Crazyfrog (won)

A daft game which is very easy to pick up, if you like Killer Bunnys its a lite version of this, where you a Gub or more as the game progress and you are trying to save it from the other players as they either try to seal it and kill it, all the time you are trying the same thing.  The game ends when all 3 cards have been placed on the table which spell the word GUB, then the player with a Ďfree gubí will win, this was me as all the others either didnít have a free gub or no gub at all.  As the end game condition is based on a card turn this can either be as very short or long game and winning is total down to luck.

The Speicherstadt (BBG)

Gamers/score: Carl, Zarniwoop, Roy, Crazyfrog, PalletRanger (won)

A great and enjoyable game in which you can apply a different strategy everytime you play and the scoring will always be close right up to the end.

Raiders 19 (23/06/2012)

The day was a mixed bag of different games, but as always lots of fun with new faces coming to the event for the first time.

Discover India

Gamers/score:  Styx 55, Barry 41, Ian 41, Zarniwoop 40, CrazyFrog 36
A great game with an interesting level of strategy which is not apparent when you first look at the game, as you score VPís by making coloured links on your board, however you can only obtain these from locations based on the previous players move, so it becomes very difficult to complete long chains of single colours.  A good game, very easy to learn but has a fun level to keep you thinking.

Wings of War

Gamers/score:  The Hun (CrazyFrog & Scott) Lost, The Brits (Paul & Martin) Won
Scott took the Fokker DR1 (Red Baron), I had the Rumpler, Martin the RAF RE8 and Paul the Sopwith Camel.  The Red Baron has an early bath as he got blown out of the sky on the second round because he straight into the middle of the map to meet the enemy head on.  That left me to try and take out the Brits, I fought valiantly and nearly took the RAF RE8 out, but in the end I too spiralled out of the sky.  A great game which introduced this fun game to Paul & Martin.

Power Grid

Gamers/score:  Andie 7, Martin 6, CrazyFrog 5, Paul 3
As an introduction for Paul & Martin a quick power to 7 cities of Power Grid was run.  I havenít played this for ages and it was nice was to have a gentle game to refresh my rules knowledge.  As always a great game and I really like playing it.

Space Hulk: Death Angel The Card Game

Gamers/score:  Andie, Paul, Martin, CrazyFrog
Andie ran this game which is good as I always struggle to get my head around the mechanics of this game for some strange reason.  Anyway as normal with a game of Space Hulk death was inevitable it was just how many levels could you survive.

The Roll of Honour Blood Angels reads:
Brother CrazyFrog Ė Died first in ambush
Brother Martin Ė Died in glory facing the enemy with full auto fire.
Brother Arnu Ė Died protecting his fellow brother
Brother Paul Ė Outnumbered but took down a large number of Genestealers before a noble death.
They will be remembered.

Fearsome Floors

Gamers/score:  CrazyFrog 4, Paul 3, Martin 3, Andie 2
To finish off the evening, we had a quick game of Fearsome Floors.  It has been ages since I last played and do admit to possibly getting the rules slightly wrong as my gang did appear to escape fairly easily and I was the last player to enter the dungeon.  Anyway great fun and simple game to play which is a great way to end off another fun packed Raiders of the Game Cupboard.
