Thursday evening saw the 6InchMove team head to their latest addition of the floating citadel to talk more smack, throw more dice and drink more DPZ. Fortunately, the Co-op had a buy one get one free offer on DPZ. Unfortunately that meant that they had sold out, so we were reduced to drinking Pepsi of the Max variety.
The gaming commenced with War Of The Ring, the much mocked yet well dressed elvish handbag collectors of Gribblin taking on the might of ZombiePirate’s Fallen Realms. It was a close match that went down to pretty much the last throw of the dice, but as Dark Helmet carefully noted in Spaceballs: “Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.”, the lads from the Fallen Realms won the day. To be fair though, there was no dumbness here as both players are getting their tactics for playing this excellent game correct.
Following War Of The Ring, we all settled down for a game of Death Angel, the card game based on Space Hulk. Personally, I really enjoy this game, almost to the extent that I enjoy Space Hulk. Honestly! Yes, they are two different beasts but Death Angel is far more straightforward at least from a logistical point of view and still retains the edge of tension and the much cliched “a moment to learn, a lifetime to master” type feeling of the original.
