Gaming with Neoscream: New Year's Week 2015

Welcome to “Gaming with Neoscream”. This is my (normally) 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 to Wargames Workshop MK. I got a game of Boss Monster. Boss Monster is a dungeon building card game. It was great fun and I might pick it up in the future.

On Tuesday this week I went to Simon’s with Darren H and Simon. We all first played a game Richard has been wanting to play for ages called Britannia. Britannia is a historical board game that broadly depicts the millennia-long struggle for control of England, Scotland, and Wales. The game begins with the Roman invasion of 43 A.D., continues through the many struggles between Angles, Saxons, Picts, Norsemen, Scots, Irish, and other tribes, and ends with the Norman invasion of 1066. Richard won the game with Darren H a close second. It is a VERY long game to play, but was interesting to play. Darren H had to leave due to picking up Lisa.
Afterwards we played a game of Munchkin with just me, Richard and Simon which I won and Simon came a close second.

HeroClix should be back on Thursday and will be the third part of the Batman trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises”. 500 points, the team must have a Batman of 200 points or less that you have not used so far in the trilogy OR Bane.

Wargames Workshop MK has a £2 gaming fee or £4 with a pack of Magic the Gathering cards unless it is a paid tournament run by Guardians of Tyr (not including High Command). Weekday events normally start “playing” at 7PM.

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, hope for a better tomorrow.
