Pandemic Legacy -- Hobart -- February

We won.  Just.  By the skin of our teeth.  We had no more black cubes to place, and a turn to go till we could win.  We had the quarantine specialist, and we were playing quarantine markers as fast as we could.  But we managed to get through to the win!

Christine was the Quarantine Specialist, quarantining everywhere!

Art de la Guerre -- War of the Roses

My Lancastrian force, led by Percy, moved South.  With Scottish pikemen, northern militia, and a small retinue I came up against Carl with an elite force of knights and archers.

It was a close game.  Carl broke my force.  But if he hadnt I would have broken him next turn with 3 flank attacks about to charge home.  So close but so far!

Carl's damned Yorkists!

Lancastrian Scots showing the Yorkists the right amount of respect!

Pandemic Legacy -- Hobart -- January

We have started Pandemic Legacy in Hobart.  Playing with Cameron, Christine, Martha, and me.

We started the January game with a fairly standard roster of Medic, Dispatcher, Researcher, and Scientist.  We won, but only just.  Cameron "we have the game wrapped up" Harris drew a bad epidemic card, and we had 3 outbreaks on the last turn!  Net result is a pair of rioting cities!!!!  And we are only at January!!!!

But we won!

Went to HOGS with Marie and gave Martha a lift.

Played Galaxy Trucker.  I thought Marie would be great at it, as she is so good a jigsaws.  But it turns out that Galaxy Trucker is just not her game -- her ship got blown apart twice!

We started off with Seven Wonders.

Lots of people playing!

Marie's ship -- 2/3rds has been blown off!!!!

Marie isn't happy about this game!

Ship #3 is doing OK.  Martha's has been devastated by slavers.

Art de la Guerre -- Romans vs Britons

More Art de la Guerre.

A very, very, very close game, that could have gone either way.  I won, as Romans -- but I was teetering on the brink of defeat for the last 3 turns!

The Romans are charging the Britons before they can be outflanked.

Carl plotting an evil plan!

A blurry contact

What happens here -- can the cavalry attack the lone skirmisher, as it cant adjust?

The end -- The Romans have broken the British center, but have been outflanked.  A Phyrric victory!
