Games Night 19th Januray 2016

In a dark and twisted house sat upon a dark an oppressive hill four beleaguered mortals traipsed through the dark front portal into a not so well illuminated hallway. These four unfortunate souls were the less than famous Professor Longfellow (MC), disgraced cheerleader Vivian Lopez (PH), recently distraught Zoe Ingstrom (SF) and Ox Bellows (AL), the instantly forgettable.
Unannounced, uninvited and unwanted, these four trespassers pried further into the overtly oppressive construction, not once being putt off by the fact that the first room before reaching the stairs happened to be a cemetery.
This house had recently undergone a renovation and featured new rooms to explore on a third floor in the room, which was totally ignored.
With all of seven rooms explored, Ox Bellows, managed to trip a haunting. There’s music playing…
I was working in the lab, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
Professor Longfellow did the mash.
None of the criteria for revealing the traitor applied, so it fell to the person next to AL.
With the Graveyard being the only haunt-related room discovered, MC got to pick where the ballroom went (next to the graveyard) as well as two further haunting rooms (also next to the graveyard). Within 3 rounds, 3 extra haunting rooms were added, Ox Bellows slid down and slide and dispatched Dracula before he got a chance to party, and four monsters made it to the ballroom.
They did the mash! They did the monster mash!

Next up, we took on new personae for
MC became Krazztar the Blood o’ Mancer and despite Wil Wheaton’s Krazztar voice stuck in his head, affected a wizened ol’ Scot.
PH chose Lady Lazervere Of The Space Kingdom and had the most disturbing voice of the night…
SF switched to Princess Holiday and her Furicorn who sounded a lot like SF.
AL embodied the role of Pisster the Pissed Wizard who had about three distinct voices.
The game went into four rounds:
Round 1:
SF followed by MC were killed with PH defeating AL.
Round 2:
MC followed by AL were killed with SF defeating PH.
Round 3:
PH followed by SF were killed with MC defeating AL
Round 4:
SF followed by MC well killed with PH defeating AL.
Laservere wins!

Games Night 12th January 2017

To kick off the new year, we had a crack at misbehaving with MC’s newly acquired

The players, chosen at random:
AL: Wash
EM: Jayne
MC: Simon
PM: Book
PH: Inara
We attempted the 1st three episodes.
Episode I saw the goods turn up reasonably quickly so the overpowered alliance command ship didn’t cause too much hassle before we managed to get out of there.
Our upgrade purchase increased our crew size by one.
Episode II was a little more problematic. Wash had the face-off with Dobson, but was rescued by Inara.
Patience came late to the party which already featured 2 snipers, a bandit and a Reaver ship.

Book was knocked out, but Simon was able to revive him before being eliminated himself. By the Inevitable conclusion Wash was the only player still standing, with no credits awarded.
Wash’s attempt to rob a train single handed was thwarted by Craw’s immediate appearance.
GAME OVER – Better luck next time, perhaps.

To finish off the evening, we played AL’s offering of

A bit more of a party game than the more ‘series’ games we usually go for, but nevertheless we had a lot of fun with it.
SC joined us after the first round.
Final scores:
AL: 16
EL: 16
MC: 15
PH: 16
PM: 14
SC: 12
The two words of significant transformation were ‘Librarian’ as given to MC, who drew a picture of an orang-utan surrounded by books, PM interpreted it as a lab monkey, AL drew a monkey in a cage is a laboratory, PH interpreted it as a laboratory animal leaving EL to draw a mouse in a maze.
The second, recorded in photo form for posterity was courtesy of PH, who had the deciding choice for all 12 words on his card…
This is what he picked:
This is what he drew:…
SC looked at this obscure construct and came up with this:
AL interpreted this as ‘high horse’ and drew a horse smoking a joint:
PM saw this picture as an animal undergoing medical care so use that well-known often-used phrase:
MC struggled with this, so drew a goat puking up:
EL managed to see this as:
