SECRET SANTA 2017

santa claus

As I have done before, I am once again participating in the Secret Santa event.  This event was originally begun by Ian and Cath over at the Blog With No name.  This year, however, they have decided to take a hiatus for various reasons.  Thanks to both Ian and Cath for all the fun these last couple of years.  Thanks are also due to Roy Williamson at Never Mind the Jankers who has offered to host this year.

One of the requirements is for us participants to give a list for our Secret Santa for ideas, so here is mine for this year.  I will try to offer sources for US to save shipping,  where I can.

Gangsters:

American Craftsman House

Grey Harbor House B

I only now the one source for this just now.

American War for Independence: Perry Brothers

Santa Claus Isn’t Coming to Town!

page_1

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…..
