It’s been an awesome bank holiday weekend for gaming. Three days of playing games that culminated with the second birthday celebration of the long weekend (this time Edmunds birthday) and a game of Scythe.
Apparently Edmund and Charlie haven’t gotten over the “betrayal” Friday night.
Whilst Edmund and I were both playing one of the “new” factions from Invaders from Afar (I was Clan Albion, Edmund was Togawa Shogunate). Charlie was playing one of the original five factions Polania.
Which meant Charlie and I were next to each other on the board, and Edmund was all on his lonesome on the opposite side of the map.
With Charlie so close he was able to block me off from getting an early factory card. Starting with zero combat cards made breaking out hard. Which allowed Edmund to get to the factory for first pick and plant an annnoying trap on that space.
By the time Charlie realised the threat of Edmund it was too late. Edmund had his engine all in place and sprinted to the finish line.
After the scoring was done Edmund had thrashed us both. But justice was done with Charlie coming last.
A great afternoons gaming celebrating Edmunds birthday. Thank you Edmund for inviting me. I had a great time.
Oh btw if you ever hear me say the words used for the title of this post or “I’ll have a decaf coffee” these are my code phrases for “I’m being held against my will and need rescuing”.
