It’s a good job I checked how many were attending the planned “Sinning again” event for The Fenland Gamers yesterday before heading off to it.
I thought it was just going to be Diego and myself. So had packed just 7 Wonders Duel with the Pantheon expansion, Hero Realms and newly arrived that morning Inis.
However Will and Lucia had signed up also within the previous 24 hours. Which was a pleasant surprise, because our planned play was for them and Diego when I created the event the previous weekend.
So I quickly unpacked and threw in everything I had for The Others.
Having everything with me allowed Diego, Will and Lucia to choose which pre-constructed team they played with.
They choose to go with The Sons of Ragnarok. A play on The Sons of Anarchy but using Norse Gods in biker outfits!
We went with a terror story called Haven in Flames. In this scenario there were no corruption checks, but lots of checks against damage by fire.
Once more as the sin I was victorious. But I was wondering about the scenario. It wasn’t until the last objective that I started to claw back into the game by stacking up the bodies of the heroes.
Having Wrath in a district with abominations and acolytes did make it very hard for the heroes to complete the final mission. I was rolling 14 plus dice in any fight. I used a similar tactic the previous game. I’m not sure how you stop this, and get a win for the heroes. At the moment this allows me to pick off heroes one at a time as they enter.
Diego identified a mistake from their side in not playing their team correctly. I don’t think they were using their abilities to their fullest.
But I also thought that this story unlike the previous one didn’t give the heroes much equipment.
Playing as the sin is fun, and allows you as the sin player to ham things up a little. Letting out the odd evil chuckle or “muhaha” just as you play a sin card. Near the end the odd playful “I smell blood” before reacting helps lighten things up.
Having said that I do want to play as a hero next time.
I do feel we still have a lot to explore with The Others. We have the different story types, different teams to try, different sins, team construction, Dark past cards.
So here is to the next chance to sin in Wisbech!
