Had a couple of 2-player games of Mythic Battles recently. I’m writing up the first one to stick on BGG as there’s not much on there at the moment. Hardly surprising as it’s not even been on the KS yet. That’s tonight 🙂
I only took one picture of the second fight as it was a bit more scrappy and technical, both of us seeming to have more difficulty coordinating our varied forces. On my side, that was at least partly caused by my initial choices. Instead of trying to pick a coherent force (which I would normally strongly recommend) I chose a selection of units that I haven’t used much, to see how they worked. The problem I had was that even though they went well individually, they never really gelled as a team, so I never had a very coherent plan. My fault entirely.
I made a few errors, and then Ben made a couple, but he was a turn ahead of me in the killing stakes, and what had started out as a game either of us might win with Omphalos collecting turned into a race to strike the mortal blow.
This dice roll was the coup de grace on Hades, winning the game for Ben. The roll is a flukey one, but even without it Ben had a second activation to finish him off, so it looked like curtains for the Lord of the Underworld even on a fairly poor roll. Of course, if he’d fluffed all his attacks on both activations, I would probably have taken the last couple of wounds off Zeus, so it as actually very close.
That’s my story, anyway 😉
