Played the "Blitz Cooperation" scenario on Friday night with Jeff Lee and Joseph Acker. I've just now realized we should have only had 3 Cities instead of 4. We ended up taking 2 Cities and part of a 3rd. Final score was 102, which Joseph felt was a big improvement over his last attempt, which was a 57.

Played this with Mark Swenholt (fresh off Grand Jury duty, no less!) and 5 other "new" folks whose last names I can't remember. They were Dan, Kan da Sea, "Office Max" and his wife "Office Maxine", and the owner of the game who apparently is a Saints fan. I will do better at the names next time! The natural order of the universe reasserted itself, and the game had the appropriate outcome.

Played with Joseph Acker and Ian Foutz. Good thing Ian had played before. He keep me straight on several of the rules. He also beat us by a country mile. I didn't just lose; I was BRSNASIS.
Wonderful game! Can't wait to play again.

I can see why some folks like the shortness of this game compared to Battlestar Galactica, but give me BSG any day. Not a bad game at all, just a bit too "lean" for my tastes.

Saw some folks sitting down to play this using adjacent settlements and an apparently random number disc distribution. We corrected this, and started over. It's amazing how much better most games work when using the correct rules. A very pleasant and enjoyable game/group. I really GOTTA do better at names. Thanks Heather, Adam, and Drew!

I you want to see someone embody the idea of "good sportsmanship", play a game with Randy Snyder. Also played with his buddy Lenny. A fun session which saw the Orcs crush the Skaven and Dwarves.

I was involved in several 3 and 4-player games of this over the course of the weekend. I saw wins by a Stark Tully/Knight deck, a Baratheon rush deck, and a Lannister draw/intrigue machine.

We had a couple of games against a Martell Sand Snakes deck that felt miles better than what the other three players had, but we managed to successfully hogtie him both times. Funny how this game captures the feel of the fiction that way . . .

Some of the cards from Heart of Doom do some interesting stuff with militia. They're not just for throwing away anymore.

We went 1-1 against the first Khazad Dhum scenario. It was brutal and took some fortuitous card draws to beat it on our second attempt.
