After last year’s success, we had another gaming event with friends. This time, the weather was friendly and we could set up in the garden.
The main attraction was a game I had been working on for quite a while (not continously, though): namely a tavern brawl based on the old Brewhouse Bash rules from White Dwarf #223. I collected figures in brawling poses, which were harder to find than I thought, and built some terrain. The main headache proved to be the playing surface. After several aborted experiments I had to make a last-minute compromise and take a sheet of unpainted PVC floor coating. It looks ok, I guess.
Here are some impressions from the game:
The game was simple fun. We had eight player, but it still moved along at a good pace. Austrians of a certain age grew up with Bud Spencer & Terrence Hill movies and the game conveyed the feeling of those comic scuffles pretty well.
Afterwards, we played two parallel games of Sellswords & Spellslingers, which is aways a fun game, especially for events such as these.
Thanks to all the players, it was great to spend an afternoon and evening gaming with friends!
