Tabletop Gaming Weekend 2017

November rolls around. Christmas gets closer. Everyone looks for their first Christmas tree or the Cola Christmas advert. Some people even start gearing up for the YouTube vlogmas madness. I always have something different to look forward to as around late November and early December we congregate for CottageCon. What …

A Board Game of Gibbering Madness

Note: This blog is a bit late, it seemed to get a bit lost in the workflow. I played two board games over the Christmas holidays, one was Star Wars Rebellion and I wrote about it on a previous blog post. The the second game was Mansions of Madness. It’s …

Learning From Titan’s Grave and Board Games

I’m a fan of Titan’s Grave. It’s enthralling viewing, which is amazing when you consider it is a TV show that is a televised experience of role-playing game sessions. I’ve talked about why I like it and some of the implications of the TV show element that means you’re not …

Facing The Zombicide Horde

I purchased two new boardgames relatively recently: Marvel Legendary and Zombicide. We played Marvel Legendary not too long ago, and today we got our first experience of Zombicide. Zombicide is a very clever game. It really feels like you’re playing in an episode of The Walking Dead. The overall escalation …

Impounded: Rebel…Victory!

So, I drew my agenda cards as I’d not done at the end of the last session. I had 5 agenda points and two forced missions came out of the deck. Different. I was in two minds whether to give them a go, as the one I was interested in …

Fly Solo: Rebel…Victory!

The fifth mission in the Imperial Assault campaign was another great experience, albeit it came after our first game of Star Trek Catan and it’s epic dilithium shortage (all three dilithium planets were set at 2,3 and 4 stalling the whole game). I have to admit, I thought I had …

A New Threat: Imperial…Victory!

The third mission of the campaign is a story mission: A New Threat. A remote base and secret Imperial experiments being undertaken to deliver a new piece of military hardware. Specifically, a fancy new Imperial AT-ST Walker. The mission set-up had a few things going for it. The doors didn’t …

Target of Opportunity: Imperial…Victory!

We’ve only done one side mission so far and this one represented the second. We felt the first one was a bit mixed as the Imperials won it quite quickly, it was certainly didn’t come down to a single die roll in the penultimate round like the two story missions …

Homecoming: Imperial…Victory!

Homecoming is quite exciting. It seemed to be a ‘big play’ side mission in that it introduces two major characters from the films and it offers Luke Skywalker as an ally for the rebel side. That seems to be a significant asset for the future? A key one for the …

Aftermath: Rebel…Victory!

We started our Imperial Assault campaign proper today and it was very exciting. We played Aftermath, the first mission, and then Homecoming was drawn as the first side mission. Aftermath is strange in that we’d played it twice already in our initial play test, albeit we weren’t playing it with …
