I’m calling last night a success. A modest one, with only 3 people, but a success for our first ever Frive event.
We played Runebound, which was awesome. Andrew had some bad luck at the start of the game which set him back for a while. My beginners luck looked like it would win me the game, but Andrew came back strong and once we worked out that hanging around the cities to get more allies and items was a good thing, we all started kicking some major monster butt.
The game finished up at about 3.30am (it’s been a long time since I’ve seen 3am), but that was okay. My wife had to work today, which left me looking after the kids, but she was kind enough to feed them breakfast and turn the TV on before leaving (I have only fuzzy recollections of her saying goodbye). Eventually the kids came and stole my doona and that was it for sleep. Some coffee and cold pizza for breakfast and I was ready to go.
I’m already looking forward to the next Frive event in three months: Friday 30th July. I’m hoping to at least double the attendance, so feel free to spread the word. And don’t forget to sign up to the (all new) news letter (if you aren’t already on the list). I have a link to the form on the Mailing List page.
Let me know if you have any suggestions for venues. If we can get more people, we may even get two or more different games running at once.
