Ping ....... Ping ...... Ping

Went to Hogs and played Captain Sonar.

This is a great game.  Not the best game ever, but definitely something every gamer should play once.  So much fun!!!!

Basically, its a giant game of battleship, with the ships moving.  My team won -- because the opposing team managed to blow up their own sub with collateral damage from a torpedo that was meant to hit us, but missed (because they miss-calculated where we were)

Explaining the rules

I was engineer and weapons officer.

Pandemic Legacy -- Hobart -- April

The Zombie Apocalypse has started.  We managed to beat the game for April, but Mumbai is city zero for the zombie plague!!!!

Cameron and Martha plan strategy.

Zombies terrorize the subcontinent!

Gosh we look pleased.  But it will get worse!!!!!

Art de la Guerre -- Macedonians vs Persians

Went to Johns and taught him Art de la Guerre.

When my flank march came on he thought the game was over.  But it wasnt -- he went on to win by smashing my center and right, while holding off the flank march just long enough.

John's Companions heading towards my Macedonian Cav

My cav flank march about to run into a wall of hoplites :(

Art de la Guerre -- Samurai

Carl and John had an Art de la Guerre battle using Samuarai at Griggsy's place.  I provided a table and rules, but otherwise spectated.

Pandemic Legacy -- Hobart -- March

It took us two tries in the one night, but me managed to complete March.

The first game was so close -- we had the cards to cure a disease (and eradicate it), and we just needed to build one more military base.  And then the red disease went berserk and we lost.  So we tried again.  The second game was much longer.  Having built a military base as the bonus for the lost game, we built more military bases, and used them to fly military personnel around the world preventing outbreaks.
