Gaming with Neoscream: 25th May 2014

Welcome to “Gaming with Neoscream”. This is my weekly gaming report and event write up post for miniature games, RPGs, card games and computer games.



This Week's Events

On Thursday I went down to York House to play some games of HeroClix. This week we were playing the scenario "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." (Please check the HeroClix Scenarios page for more information). The only change this that is will be a two week event than a one week one. However the second week will be the week after next as we are expecting some extra players next week. All the teams used this week are in the Armies section. Michael messed up at the last moment and misplaced several of his figures, so he had to add a couple of other figures which stopped his teams from being themed.
Crossbones
In the first round I was up against Darren S. I was using my S.H.I.E.L.D. team while Darren S used his Hydra team. Like normal ageist Darren S, I lost. Also Michael won his game against Adrian.
In the second round I was up against Adrian. We were both using Hydra teams. I won this game, however Adrian’s dice rolls were not that great. Also Darren S won his game against Michael.
In the third and final round I was up against Michael. I was using my S.H.I.E.L.D. team while Michael used his Hydra team. At first is looked like I was winning as I dealt Silver Samurai a nasty blow and KOed Death Mask, however Michael somehow pulled things around with Sin and he won the game. Also Darren S won his game against Adrian.
Overall Hydra is ahead with five victories compered to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s one. This will continue in two weeks’ time where we had to use the same teams, however Michael is allowed to swap to the teams he was meant to use.

For rules for Guardians of Tyr tournaments and leagues as well as information on pre booking your place in tournament. Pre booking is highly recommended so they know how many people are coming. So please go to their website which there is a link to it under my links section which are located on the right hand side of this blog.

York House has a £3 on the day gaming fee and a £5 fee for a year’s membership. However the first day is free and they only take yearly membership fee at the start of the year. The Hall officially opens at 7PM, but normally people start arrived 15 to 20 minutes early.
