Temple of Elemental Evil, Part 1

  • I decided that for a change, I will go after the earth key without getting the club first
  • I had the four keys before I decided it was time to fight. Hireling RAN to the shrine
  • Died in the boss fight – I did get three elementals downs

Warfighter WWII

  • Attempted the shortest scenario with a larger force.
    • I cleared out the first location on the first turn.
    • I destroyed the objective on the second. What? I actually won?
    • Perfect draw: Silver Bullet, Move Out x2, Stay Low, and two others

Arkham Horror: The Card Game

  • Learned the rules and played the first two scenarios.
  • There is one more scenario in the campaign
  • Annoying that class icons are in differing parts on the cards
  • I find it interesting that there is a resign mechanism if you decide it is best to quit the field

Aeon’s End

  • Package deliveries before 8:00 AM?
  • A few unusual mechanisms
    • Variable turn order
    • The discard pile is not shuffled when it becomes the new deck
    • Delay when casting spells
  • The game has several bosses of varying difficulty
  • The game also includes rules for adjusting challenge
  • My first game was tight and I barely came through it on probably the easiest boss


  • Started on the subway tunnel
  • Finally gained a cartographer and gained a map – a long way out
  • Found a guest home in an out-of-the-way location

Pre-painted?? Where’s the fun in that? Half the fun with miniatures is painting them yourself. Although, I can see where ‘pre-painted’ could be nice for some.
