Showed some more folk how to play the new DZR last night over at Mantic. One game was Pathfinders against Veer-myn, the other Plague against Enforcers. I didn’t get a lot of pics of the Pathfinders/Veer-myn game as that was very fast and bloody (and I was busy explaining rules), with the rats getting wiped out as a penalty for being a little too bold. Anyway, you can see it going on in the background on the blue buildings.
Below you can see a low angle shot from the Enforcer side. Nice to see both sides clambering about on the ruins.
I can’t give you a blow-by-blow account as I was flitting between the two battles, explaining the rules. However, Ronnie and Dave were being rather more cagey that the others, so the game went on longer. Dave’s Stage 1A took some wounds really early on, but then spent a lot of time sulking in the shadows so he didn’t go down. Here he is later, having emerged from hiding again.
The core rules are pretty slick now and run nice and smoothly, so the games played quickly with very few questions even though 3 of the 4 players hadn’t played before. Which was nice. I think the public beta will come when I’ve got a set of army lists finished off and Mantic have made it look pretty 🙂
Meanwhile, to one side was another game going on, this time Dungeon Saga. So it was a busy night 🙂
