Fokkers over Blenheim

We were going to play Blenheim, but not enough people showed up.  So we cleared 1/2 the table and did Fokkers!

Game 1 was 2 Camels vs a Fokker and a Roland

Jim in a Fokker on the tail of Nick in a Camel, who is on the tail of Jim's Roland.  Mike has had engine failure and been forced to land!

Game 2: Mike in an Albatross being hunted by Jim in a Spad!

Star Wars Rebellion rematch -- so cinematic

Cameron and I had a rematch of Rebellion.  Cameron was the empire, and I was the rebels.

This time Cameron spread out quickly.  I consolidated around the rebel base.  When Cameron had figured out where the base was, he couldn't get his fleets there in time to crush it.

Highlights included:
- Bobba Fet discovered where the base was, and lead an attack using troops from Coruscant (center of the Empire).  The attack failed, but it took a bunch of rebels down.  Chewbacca lead a secret counterattack to Coruscant that scored a ton of VPs.
- Darth Vader managed to capture Obi-wan.  Luke lead a rescue mission, and using the 'return of the Jedi' card, managed to eliminate Darth Vader.

Once again, this was a nailbiter.  Another turn and Cameron would have won.

Where could they be?

Grand Austria Hotel

I like this game.  Its sort of like Agricola, except you are managing a hotel.  You have to prepare rooms for guests, make struedel and cake for them, etc.  It helps that I won my first game.

Launceston Visit

Had to go to Launceston for work.  Played Bolt Action with Terry

The marder wiped out my forward squad

Terry bringing on reinforcements


My M16 did great execution -- until a panzerfaust got it!

Terry tried to sneak a victory, but in the end ran out of troops.

Daniel and Dennis had a game going

Pandemic Legacy Hobart - July 2

Powered through this easily.  Well -- sort of easily -- we would have lost if we didnt have the funded event card that let us see what epidemics were coming up!

We were off to a good start!


We won!  And we ate the cheese!

It was as easy as Cameron said it would be!
