The club was once again busy on the 13th of April with the ongoing campaign of Pandemic Legacy taking to the tables once more; a session of Thunderbirds with expansions and the mash-up game that is being taken to Salute for the club stand.
Garry summed all this up in the briefest of brief reports as follows:”We pre-played the Salute game this week along with Thunderbirds with expansions and a game of Bob’s but I cannot remember what it was called.”.
I don’t have a report about how the Thunderbirds game went but at least three glowing reports about how Pandemic Legacy went. Let’s start with Pete’s report:”Best Pandemic – ever – thrilling, wildly inventive – tough but with just enough chance that we might prevail. It has created a compelling underlying narrative but with engaging regular episodes like a boxed set of a quality TV show (Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones or The Wire.) except we get to make decisions and the end of each episode is unknown – even to the producers. I am a sucker for co-op games but this has become an all time highlight of my board-gaming experiences. Thank you John!
We also got a sneak preview of the War of the Worlds/Midnight Party mash up ready for Salute – escape the Tripod war machines! it looks brilliant. Well done lads!”.
Kev was equally effusive:”John, Pete, James and I played the excellent Pandemic Legacy. Played 3 times winning once but getting closer to finding the final cure for the faded. And we now have nukes!!!!!!”.
Equally thrilled was John who is the game’s owner:”Back with a bang this week – and as already covered by Pete and Kev each game of Pandemic Legacy is on a knife edge, with the eventual win this week being the turn before the world went belly-up for what would have been third time in a row – but we squeaked in a victory to end the night.
Next week James and I will be playing something – if it’s just the two of us we’ll probably do Netrunner, but if others are looking for a game we’ll do games for 3 or 4 or 5, we’ll decide closer to the time.”.
