Session Summary - 9 May 2007

Knowing that Mike and Steve would be absent, I got in touch with Dave before hand and he brought Ben along, with the intention of playing Runebound.

As it turned out this was a very one sided game. An event turned up right at the beginning putting cards face down in 3 of the towns. Whoever first visited the town would be able to take the cards free. I managed to visit the centre town first and then as the others had headed north I quickly went south to the town there. The result was that I picked up 2 value 10 items for nothing and was set up from then on, one item was a nice sword, which would usually allow me to take out most of the low level encounters and many higher ones before combat was begun and the other was a staff allowing me to heal all wounds and fatigue at the beginning of the turn so I never need to spend gold on healing. When the other town was visited, the free card was a cheap one.

This all set the tone for the game and I was able to win easily while the other laboured trying to deal with the lesser encounters. We did run into a few puzzles over effect timing later on due to the things introduced in the games FAQ on subject that I would not have thought to ask a question, but the questions were asked and the answers were different to what I would have thought. This maybe delayed my victory by a short while.

Until next week.
