Scimitar Wargames Group met this week as usual, and once again I forgot to take my camera.
Tonight saw many of us involved in a large, 7-player game of Arkham Horror. This is a co-operative board game based on the writings of HP Lovecraft – the game itself comes with a colossal amount of bits (mainly cards, chits and dice) and is great fun to play.
The idea is for the group to play a team of investigators who travel around the town of Arkham, looking for clues, trying to close dimensional gates and kill the monsters that are slipping through into our dimension.
At some point, the end game is reached as a particular large monster awakens, and all the surviving investigators have to do battle with the monster in order to save the world. As I said, a fun game.
Then it was off to the pub for games of Cloud 9, Midnight Party (yes, we do play the German version) and Hanna-Barbara Uno.
