Victory to Lara

For some reason I kept beating Lara at 7 wonders duel.  But the winning streak came to an end.  If the final hidden card had been a science card I would have won -- but it wasnt, and I lost -- by a lot.

Lara comes from close to Burgundy!

Castles of Burgundy with Lara.  The game ended with a tie.  Lara would have won if she hadnt made a mistake on the last turn.

Trip to play games with Rod

Drove to Launceston to play games with Rod.

What a fantastic table to fight over!

Another view of the table.  The scenario was a trap to capture Captain America (in the civil war)

Thor landed in some henchmen.  The result was predictable!

Iron Man appeared to capture Thor

And who is that swinging between buildings?

The Hulk about to throw a car.  The car missed, but iron man got a lucky roll and knocked out Thor!  Victory to Rod.  But what a great game!

Games 2 -- Star trek.  Some Federation light ships ambush some Klingon heavy ships

By using their initiative, the Federation ships destroyed 2 Klingon cruisers for the loss of a Federation destroyer.  The surviving destroyer leaving the field.  Nick won.

Star Wars Risk.  Rod won convincingly.  But this is a fun fast game!

Pandemic Lagacy Hobart -- September I

So close.  We thought the initial disease break was tricky, with two outbreaks very close to each other.  Things looked bad when we got an epidemic on the first turn.  But none of the outbreaks expanded, and we quickly got all diseases under control.  We were about to cure two diseases, and the game looked so easy to win.  Then we got an epidemic -- a disease broke out next to our two close outbreaks, and then both outbreaks expanded, and in a set of chain reactions we lost the game, just like that.
