Die Fighters


We split into a few groups playing Gloom, Level 7 [Omega Protocol] and Space Cadets: Dice Duel.

Using the power of facebook Dan announced that he'd be bringing Space Cadets: Dice Duel, a real time dice rolling game played by two teams. I got suckered in to watching the instructional video which in turn suckered me into being nominated as the captain. We threw together two teams of four and commenced battle. Initially we played the basic game without asteroids or crystals. I would like to say I led my team to victory but that would be a blatant lie. We were obliterated. After some quick mutiny, Andy became the captain of our team and I was relegated to helm and shields. We added in the asteroids and crystals and launched into a second battle. My helmsmanship was as bad as my captainmanship, and we ended up losing the second battle too.

After Space Cadets we separated into two groups. I played Revolution! while the others played Forbidden Desert. Revolution! is a game of blind bidding. Initially I had no idea what I was doing but after a few rounds I started to get the hang of it. It was looking like the game was mine until my general lack of attention meant I attacked Dan when really I should have attacked Steve. This left Steve with enough points to edge in front of me, winning the game.

I had to leave before the end of the night but no doubt a bunch of other games were played too. Probably The Resistance.
