First off, I want to say thank you to everyone who showed up at the event last night on October 13th, 2018. It was super fun and exciting. Honestly, it was probably the best Do or Die we’ve had from the very beginning back in 2016. This year’s event was filled with a lot of twisted and turns and was one of the biggest upsets we’ve had!
New Kids on the Block
While we had fun playing Power Grid, 7 Wonders, we had some new kids on the block showing up, Hot Shot, Sim Milk and Jayson who we didn’t get a fancy nickname for (next time!) showed up to join us on our bi-monthly events hosted on Twitch by Majin Planet.
The Streak is Over
Tony, our Game Master is also known as Lentrax (@arbiterlentrax ) formerly known as T, he’s still unable to pity the fool; lost this title after three years in Power Grid to newcomer Hot Shot. It was an amazing and fun game. So now the battle begins; can Lentrax take back his belt at the next Game Night or Event? We’ll have to wait and see if Hot Shot returns to keep his title.
This Power Grid game was also the first time ever we’ve played with all the areas of the map open. In the past, we’ve been limited to 3-4 players. But this time we had a full 6 player game!
The 7 Wonders Fail
So as it turns out, we’ve been playing 7 Wonders wrong for four years. You read that right, in the middle of looking up a rule, we learned there was a rule in the game that we didn’t follow. It was a game changer! So that was our life lesson, always read the rules even if you know how to play! But given how Lentrax is our Game Master and even he had been playing it wrong far longer than us.
So it goes to show, that even know someone teaches you how to play, you should read the rules! Everyone had fun, and it was the first time we had all 7 wonders used in a game.
Some good times, we had some giveaways which were super fun forever one.
