I’ve been looking for a good complex board-game to get my teeth into for a while now. There’s something very appealing about colourful punch card counters spread over an interesting-looking board, but I’ve never actually got around to buying and playing one. This year when we made our yearly trip […]

Adventures Beneath the Old World
Of all the games ever released by Games Workshop, in my opinion one has always stood head and shoulders above the rest.

Second time out and the big man himself was dropped. The final battle was preceeded spectacular fights at Smite, where he had to be downed with 2 additional adds, and at a ninja-pulled Cookie. A bad pull at Greenskin cost the group a single wipe, but fast progress through the respawns got the group to the top of the ship in good order. Van Cleef fell soon after in the groups toughest fight to date.

The Stormwind 1st Vs first outing resulted in a successful clearing of The Deadmines as Far as Mr Smite. Following Smites death the team pulled half the instance from Kalimdor and wiped in an heroic fashion. Obscene aggro radii FTW. Game over was declared shortly after due to respawns. Gratz to all.
