Crusade 40k or is it possible to play Blitz Bowl in th PM THE OTHER DAVE?
No problem - my schedule is pretty free. BB with Underdweller in the morning, Terrinoth with Grant (and up to two other interested people!) some time when the FFA isn't happening, and maybe some Crusade when I can sneak a game in with whoever's free. All those are low time commitment, so I'll be able to work something out!
Fantastic

Thinking of luggage - who's planning on bringing 40K terrain? I wasn't planning on going all-in on 40K this month (just bringing my army along for a pickup game or two if anyone was interested), but if it would be helpful to bring my terrain set along I could do that.
Feel free to call me Dave!

I will bring exactly the same table I did the other two times since it is already packed!

I'm bringing 2 small houses but that's all terrain-wise.

I'm probably just be bringing Titanicus tomorrow. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get my game to a playable level with all the changes I tried to implement since the last demo. Maybe I'll try and get it properly ready for Nagoyahammer 2021 or something.

I'm gonna be 15-20 minutes late. Don't start without me!

We are at e-able nagoya, right? I've looked up and down the building twice and don't see anyone =/

Thanks for the games today folks! Especially everyone's patience with the massive free for all, we did a good job getting through it. Just sad the bravery of the folks who picked the middle zones was not well rewarded😅

And thanks to Matt for a cracking 50pl game - especially happy we got through the bigger game despite a latish start and with time to pack up at the end!

Looking forward to next time, let's see what happens if the Space Wolf book hits in time 😃

Good fun! A shame I couldn't get any 40K in, but time, games to play, etc.

Blitz Bowl was a lot of fun (thanks Underdweller, and sorry Ballonacorn that our free times didn't line up - maybe next time?) - very quick to play, but we both had plenty of tactical decisions to make and there's really quite a lot of depth there. Definitely a different game from Blood Bowl - it's more about action efficiency management than risk management, and much less random - but in the end it's running around with an oblate spheroid (three of them at one point!) and punching people, so who can complain?

Then not one but two full games of Heroes of Terrinoth, in which I mostly found that multiplayer games are significantly harder than solo games because you actually have to share information and communicate and make decisions together in a group :lol: so jumping right in to higher-difficulty scenarios with a bunch of new players is probably not optimal, haha. Still, I'd love to play again!

I'll pop a thread up later, but November will be Sunday the 22nd at, uh, the other place near Kamimaezu, I'll look it up later. Naka something or other.

Thanks for trying out Blitz Bowl with me, TOD. Like you said, it is quite a different game than Blood Bowl in some respects, but still a lot of fun. And being able to play a full game in under an hour is definitely a selling point!

Heroes of Terrinoth was fun to try too, if a little intense, with the volume of monsters swarming around all of us and attacking from the shadows. I would be happy to try it again sometime, maybe on easy mode next time, though.
