If you are planning to start a day of gaming with a full English at the establishment you will be playing, you should at least make sure you know when they stop serving.
Because that was the big flaw in my plan. So before any dice were chucked or cards shuffled, Diego and I went to the local Spoons for a traditional full English (black pudding optional extra) and a coffee.
Having fed it was back to our original plan of playing games at our original planned location of The White Lion Hotel.
Our game for the day was Mechs vs Minions.
While I was refreshing my memory of the rules, Diego was learning the game for the first time. I’d forgotten there was a tutorial to learn the basics. So we were learning or trying to remember whilst playing the first scenario.
Despite that learning curve we managed to complete the first scenario without a problem.
The second scenario started off well, but soon went to pot and ended in failure. A quick beverage break, board reset, and we were back with a plan.
It took some effort, lucky rolls and card draw, flawless execution, but Diego and I managed to complete the mission.
Which was also well timed, we didn’t have enough time to attempt the third mission. But we had enough time to pack away, make plans, chat, without the pressure of being finished by 4pm.
Yep Mechs vs Minions is still my favourite programmed action game.
Yet another great day gaming with a great friend.
