Pandemic Legacy - Hobart - May attempt 2

We had a dream run.  None of the uncurable disease cards were drawn.  The diseaes that were drawn were right next to our starting position or right next to a base we could fly to.  And the medic got first turn and cured two of our major outbreaks before anything could happen.

Why isnt the game always this easy!!!!

I wonder what next month will bring!

Crushed at Hogs

Went to HOGS.

Started off with Splendor -- got crushed by Martha.

Moved on to Power Grid the card game.  Came last.

Then tried Roll for the Galaxy.  Came last.

Had a fantastic time!!!

Pandemic Legacy -- Hobart -- May

Disaster.  Disease everywhere.  Zombies everywhere.

We lost to too many outbreaks, right before we lost too running out of time.  We were rubbish!

Crap farming

Went to HOGS and played a couple of games.

Splendor.  I was about to win, but in the move before mine Rob made a winning move and got to 16 points, and I could only get to 15.

Then played Agricola.  Made a bad first move, going for a profession rather than wood.  The profession didn't earn me nearly enough points, and I came in last.  After we went home I realized I forgot a bunch of bonus points, but that would have only made me 2nd last.  But I do love me some Agricola!

Also being played -- Terra Mystica

And a game of Machi Korro to finish up

Ping ....... Ping ...... Ping

Went to Hogs and played Captain Sonar.

This is a great game.  Not the best game ever, but definitely something every gamer should play once.  So much fun!!!!

Basically, its a giant game of battleship, with the ships moving.  My team won -- because the opposing team managed to blow up their own sub with collateral damage from a torpedo that was meant to hit us, but missed (because they miss-calculated where we were)

Explaining the rules

I was engineer and weapons officer.

Pandemic Legacy -- Hobart -- April

The Zombie Apocalypse has started.  We managed to beat the game for April, but Mumbai is city zero for the zombie plague!!!!

Cameron and Martha plan strategy.

Zombies terrorize the subcontinent!

Gosh we look pleased.  But it will get worse!!!!!

Art de la Guerre -- Macedonians vs Persians

Went to Johns and taught him Art de la Guerre.

When my flank march came on he thought the game was over.  But it wasnt -- he went on to win by smashing my center and right, while holding off the flank march just long enough.
