Games Night 19th May


Four players this week and the new Quarriors! expansion Quartifacts was chosen.
MC: Red
PH: Green
PM: Blue
PN: Black
An interesting first round with 3 creatures with the cost of eight meaning that, with the exception of a solitary dragon acquired with the help of a quartifact, only four creature pools were sourced. PM started and was the first to successfully complete a quest. Glory points were acquired in a close-run way, except for PH who managed to not get many glory points at all. MC streaked into the lead with a big score round, but got knobbled at the finish line by PN, firstly by a quartefact and then by scoring the final point needed by destroying a creature on a quest.
Round two began with PH who surprised everyone by getting glory points. This could be down to a diversionary tactic employed when his elbow knocked his glass of water over. Thankfully, he knocked it away from the game. Another close race for the finish line with MC trailing way, way behind and was considering knocking his water over too. MC managed to close the gap a fair bit but it was too little, too late for PM won the photo finish. PH has yet to win this game.
All in all Quartifacts is an excellent addition to the base game, with the satisfaction of sending creatures on quests and bringing quartifacts back. The only annoyance is that without the previous expansions, some of the quartifact bonuses are useless as they refer to Locked creatures and corrupted die which we don’t have…yet.
