A Journey Through The Infinite

I posted this on Instagram last week (@pimpmyboardgame) but was actually able to play a little bit of Infinity this weekend.

My friend has been talking about trying to start up Infinity for over a year when he picked up the starter Operation Ice Storm. I’ve been wanting to get a little sci-fi skirmish game going, having considered MERCS first, and finally settled on Infinity due to all the good press and spectacular models.

Frostgrave Winter Campaign: Session 1B

With Colton and Reese’s game report in and my “narrative” session complete, I figured I’d wrap up the rest of the sessions by going over the some last items from reports with a quick write up of my game and a make-up game with the only member that couldn’t make it the first time around.

“Sorry your Grace, but the men are ready,” Tog said softly in the dark.

Frostgrave Winter Campaign: Session 1

We had our first full Frostgrave session over the weekend and it was a lot of fun. Five of us were able to make it out on the snowy night and so we split into two groups. I started writing up my session report but it mutated into some long narrative instead. I was having fun writing so I figured I’d keep the non-traditional report but will need more time to edit it a bit more. In the meantime, my friend Colton was able to write up his own report of the other game that was running on the other table:

Reese and I played The Mausoleum scenario in the core book. In this scenario, a crypt in the center of board stands silent watch over several valuable pieces of treasure. But something foul has gone wrong in this ancient tomb and the undead are restless.
