Fortunately however, we managed to get a decent game of Dungeons and Dragons a few weeks back, courtesy of ZombiePirate being the DM. He did a good job for a first attempt and put in a good bit of effort behind the scenes. Slaughtering half the party by the third round of combat in the first encounter in retrospect was an amusing move, but hey, these ‘learning opportunities’ are what make D&D memorable!
I also managed to get some games in with long time gaming veteran and all around good guy CaRaBuS, firstly teaching him how to play Full Thrust. It’s a good game once you get the hang of it. A simple tip we can all learn from – don’t get in the way of a Kra’vak K-Gun, M’Kay? I’ve also somehow got him into War Of The Ring, which is amazing considering I’ve never played it and only have a few miniatures and a rulebook. He seems keen to go for a Gondor themed army. Something to do with swans. I’ve never read the books but I suppose it’s an army that generally honks a lot, has the fly special rule, chases ducks, suffers no penalty crossing rivers, steals your picnic and breaks your arm on a roll of a six.
That’s all for now spambots, I’ll let you know the next time anything exciting (or not) happens in the world of 6InchMove!
