My son and I had an epic session of Beowulf: The Move Board Game a little earlier today. In general, I'd say it was clearly an offensive game. We both seemed to be going for scores more than blocking or hurting our opponent. It was like a shootout in football, perhaps Oregon vs. Oklahoma State or something like that
The kid went first. He ended up playing 4 longships, but I only got three longships out. He cashed in a tile along the way.
Scoring on Act I: Me 33, the kid 19
The kid led off again. We both used 4 longships and a castle. Act II was our most defensive round, meaning we actually spent a little time keeping the opponent's scores low.
Scoring on Act II: Me 47, the kid 35
We were launching three point buckets and hitting them. We had both saved the vast majority of our pawns for Act III, so we scored big points accordingly.
Scoring on Act III: Me 156, the kid 155
Overall Score: Me 286, the kid 261
I won a shootout!!! It was a very great game of Beowulf. Act III was really exciting, can't wait to play again.
FYI---Please don't hate me for defeating my 11-year-old lol. I decided a long time ago I would make it a challenge for him to beat me at stuff, thinking the reward for finally beating me would be so much better. Now he wins about half of all two player games we play I'll never forget the first time he beat me at Chess earlier this year---he was on cloud nine for several days.
