I headed down to Calgary with Scott & after a visit to Sentry Box & checking into the hotel, headed to the con. I spent Friday night meeting up with gaming buddies, some of which I only see at this venue.
I then got into another game of Gangsters which Bruce was running.
This time around I played a faction of FBI who were determined to clean up this crooked town. I had 2 objectives. Prevent anyone taking anything from the bank while the accountant went through the books & to get into the fire hall & get photos of the poker game taking place by the crooked cops.
Unlike the previous game we played, this time there was an actual alley for players to use to get around.
Bruce is pointing out the results of a firefight between 2 characters.
Meanwhile I was headed to the Fire Hall with the photographer. My members are in the black car.
The 'Tea' truck (filled with booze) is driving out of control with an unconscious driver. It eventually skidded to the edge of the board & stopped.
Meanwhile I arrived at the firehall & had to attempt to revive the unconscious photographer, seems she had taken a hit on the way in. I succeeded & she was able to get upstairs & get the photos before the game ended.
The game did end in a draw with 2 of us attaining 110 points.
The next morning I played in a game of Songs & Blades of Heroes hosted by Mark & Mike.
The scenario consisted of 3 groups of Romans from the 9th Legion. They were looting a graveyard for gold & then had to drive the cart along the road to the tower.
Opposing them were Zombies in the Graveyard, the Necromancer & her Skeleton Hordes, & some groups of Dwarves.
Caesar at the bridge with a small detachment.
I played the Necromancer.
I didn't get off to a good start, ending my first turn on the first roll.
The Wagon continues to travel towards the fortification, it moved at the end of every Roman turn as long as there was a Roman Soldier in contact with it.
Having fallen behind, my force was mopping up the delaying Romans.
The Dwarves failed to stop the cart & it eventually got to the tower, giving the victory to the Romans.
I then spent the afternoon playing in a Kampfgruppe Commander game which pitted the US against Japanese in a meeting engagement.
The Japanese advance.
As it was based in 1945, it wasn't very realistic that we advanced on the Imperialists, however as this was a game to showcase the rules, we marched headlong into the US fire.
We did manage to bring a barrage down on the Priest & destroyed it. But the odds were against the Japanese as we had lost 5 units I believe of 8 to break when we called the game.
Saturday night saw me get into a game of Eldritch Horror, which we managed to win with 1 point remaining on the Doom Track. I didn't get any photos of the game, but suffice it to say, I really liked the Expedition Leader character I played. With all his ally's I had gotten, I was rolling lots of dice & even getting re-rolls on numerous abilities.
Sunday I played Descent. In this scenario we had to close 3 gates before the Boss got the Shadow Key & escaped with it.
I played Silhouette & opted for the ranged variant of the class.
I managed to get to the first gate control & managed to prevent any more Shadow Dragons from arriving.
Things were going well until that moment, then we really started getting hammered, having several characters drop.
We did however manage to eke out a victory & closed all 3 portals.
All in all another good weekend of gaming, & meeting up with old friends.
Now its onto Zomtober!
