Christmas ended up foiling our plans for the Williamsburg Legati meetings, but we finally got together just past new year’s day for our Christmas game of 7TV. For those of you unaware, 7TV is Crooked Dice’s game for playing cult TV goodness. Our game was a Spy-Fi game to rescue Santa Claus from the grasp of Dr. Maybe and the Greater Resistance and Interdiction of Nativity and Christmas Holidays, or GRINCH. The game was played with 30 ratings a side, being limited to figures available in Chris’ two starter packs. This was only our second game, and our first Spy-fi game, so I apologize for the figures, not all being painted yet. Chris is working on it!
The game was very one sided and went very badly for GRINCH from the start. It was obvious that the minion force would benefit from close proximity to one another, thereby being able to make use of many of their star qualities. Unfortunately, it also made them very susceptible to a nerve gas bomb the good guys brought with them! This left them weakened, from which they never really recovered.
This, and very poor dice luck which made the two Lady-Ninja pretty much indestructible. They pretty much just sliced and diced their way through my minions who provided very little resistance for them. Eventually, as it was late and we couldn’t possibly win and so we conceded defeat and Santa was released to the joy of little boys and girls everywhere! Looks like Dr. Maybe is on the naughty list this year however…..
