Gaming with Neoscream: 22nd June 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 Monday I went down to Wargames Workshop MK for the first week of the DreadBall League. The rules for the league rules will be listed in the "House Rules" section. I decided to go for my Battle Angels (Season Two Corporation) team. I spent the 20mc on the usual for them, a card and a offencive coach (AJ). My first week game was against Ian who was using a Season One Corporation team. I was the home play and on my first turn I scored a four pointer with Zone-Tan. Then Ian tried taking down my Strikers (and Guard) and he kept control of the ball for several rushes, but I managed to score a three pointer with Caxx to win the game with a whitewash. I earned a whopping 20mc from the game. I used the money on a second guard and a second card. Also Caxx earned Man Woman of the Match. This meant she went up a rank and she pick up the ability Jump. This would have been great during the game. Next week I am up against Dave who is use a Season Two Corporation team as well and on the week after that I am against Jim who had a Season One Corporation team.

Like I said last week HeroClix was cancelled this week due to the Football. Wast of time due to England losing again.

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.



House Rules

This week I have the rules for the DreadBall League I am in that is being run by Rob Taylor, one of Mantic's Pathfinders. The post first game stuff is is not set in stone yet as Rob could change his mind. 

Pick a team. You have 20mc to spend on improvements. You can not buy ranks for your players, but you can spend all 20mc on a MVP. That MVP stay on your team for the League, unless it was killed off. The MVP does not gain experience and you cannot use the cheap revival on them. This is the only way to get MVPS.
Underdog bonus can be spent on one game only cards and dice, as well as Free Agents. Free Agents do gain experience and if they are the same race as your team you can buy them at the end of the game at their value by the end of it.
Everyone are split into two groups for the first three weeks and then on the last week the two groups will play against each other. Basically the first placed player in group one will play against the first placed player of group two, the second placed player in group one will play against the second placed player of group two and so on.



Until next time, Keep Rolling.
