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 "400 Points Standard" (Please check the HeroClix Scenarios page for more information). This week Adrian could not make it as he was not feeling well, however a friend of him and Michael, also called Robert, came instead this week. All the teams used are listed in the "Armies" section. Oddly it ended up being themed, Marvel Villains version Yu-Gi-Oh. May the best side won.
In the first round I was up against Darren S who was using a Sinister Syndicate themed team. Like normal he won. The Marvel Deadpool zombies can be nasty, expecially Electro. Also Robert won his game against Michael.
In the second round I was up against Michael who was using a Joey Wheeler themed team. This was the first time I have played against the Yu-Gi-Oh stuff and I felt a little intimidated by the attack values, damage reducers and indomitable his team had. However with some Tactics I managed to win the game without losing a single figure. It did help that Darren S showed me a great way to use Pyro's Flame Constructs when when he had control of him as a zombie during our game. Also Darren S won his game against Robert.
In the third and final round I was up against Robert who was using a Yugi Muto themed team. Robert’s team was no as scary as Michael’s, but the high values did worry me, expecially the Dark Magician (more due to the fact that he is a major monster of the show/game). However he did push Dark Magician which made it easier for me to kill him and Destiny's Trait helped nurf his Probability Control and Outwit. After he quickly fell the others slowly followed to another victory for me. Also Darren S won his game against Michael.
Over all Marvel Villains tore apart the Yu-Gi-Oh monsters and Darren S ended up the over all winner this week with me at second place.

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.
Until next time, Keep Rolling.
