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. Sorry for another late post. I had to go into work early yesterday and then it ended up being a terrible day at work, does not help with being sick.
“This Week's Events”
On Thursday this week I went to York House for HeroClix. This week was a Villains only scenario. 400 points and all figures must be villains and under 100 points. I week I went for a Maggie themed team. I have always wanted to try a Maggie team, however I know that they will be terrible.
On the first round I was up against Darren S who was using a Brotherhood of Mutants themed team. Like normal against Darren S, I lost. Apart from his Flame Constructs I killed nothing of his. Also Adrian won his game against his brother Michael.
On the second round I was up against Michael who was using a Wrecking Crew themed team. Some how I managed to win this game with my poor damage values. Also Adrian shockingly won his game against Darren S.
On the third and final round I was up against Adrian who was using a Brotherhood of Mutants themed team. I managed to win this game. It really helped that I blocked/got rid of his two Probability Controllers. Also Darren S won his game against Michael.
Next week will be a "Famous Dues". 600 points, four actions, must include one Duo figure.
On Saturday evening I when down to Simon’s with Richard. We had a game of Transformers Risk. Simon was using Megatron’s forces, Richard was using Barricade’s forces and I was using Optimus Prime’s forces. Richard ended up winning the game

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.
