Notes: excitement on the map really took off this week with most of the map taken things are getting tense, I believe 3 games are going to be 3000 point allied matches using allies (guys I need confirmation of the 3K games with allies if you are playing in one) with 4 rounds of scoring still to go we wont have a problem seeing Empire sizes of 18 or more. several players score shot up dramatically with both chaos players uncovering Utopia hexs during turn 5's build and conquest phase, Jeff has already got his capital built....the Storm of Chaos never seems to end!!

Kenny and I had total slug fest today, I barely edged out a minor victory by 60 points or so...super close game and props to Ken as..dem Ogres is tuff!

Dogs scored a minor victory over the Elves...


Also, one of the 3K games is Dogs & Ogres Vs. Orcs & Chaos (Josh)... Should be happening next Tues.

I'm liking the changes to the map, tinting each of the tiles really helps visually realize who controls what territories.

Quick question (dumb question) when playing multiple games, one has to decide where to spend the gold for extra points right? I.E. if I have 2 games to play and I have 250 gold, I could spend 100 in one game and 150 in the other right? Just asking because with all the multiple games it important to remember to spend that gold correctly.

Orcs Vs. VC (3k game) will be happening this Thursday if I can ever settle on a frikken list :P from what I can tell this will not be an allies game (it will be just Orcs duking it out with the Vamps)

Josh said...

My understanding is that you choose to split your gold amongst your multiple games however you wish, yes.

From what Anthony has indicated to me, yes, it's Orcs v. VC at 3K with no allies.

Josh said...

Chaos v. Dogs of War was a massacre in favor of the Chaos/Orc side.

Congrats..any other game updates?

Bill said...

Game update:
Vampire Counts vs. Orcs @ 3K = Draw. Very good game on both sides. Highlights include, Stupid KoBK (Knights of the Blood Keep) getting led off the field but a bunch of wolf riders. Konrad almost single handedly breaking a unit of 20 Savage Orc Big uns'. Black Orc Warboss Fleeing off the table from the Grave Guard unit...

Good game all around. Luckly for all of us (except Anthony) Orcs get no points this round due to "All or Nothing".

Plastic Legions said...

Hey congrats sometimes a draw is as satisfying as a win!...any word on any of other game?

Bill said...

Oh I know that Chaos (Jeff) got massacred vs. Orcs.....but thats what happens when a player conceeds before any dice are even rolled. *sigh* Jeff if you are reading this, What happened?

Like I said earlier lucky for the rest of us I was still able to get the Draw, As a win would have given Anthony a TON of EPs to spend this week.
