Despite not having the Friday regulars for two weeks, I did get to play a 'not solo' game this week. The family rallied for a game of Mansions of Madness on the last Wednesday of the year. After playing for over three hours, we saved the game to finish at a later date.
Our in the game host, Thomas Carvey, felt threatened enough to call for the investigators help. All we had to do was question guests at a dinner party and isolate the most likely threat, who was likely to try to kill Carvey.
Things got out of hand, Carvey ended up dead.
The map board at the end of chapter:
At this point in play, our youngest player made an accusation to character of Leland for the murder of Carvey. Evidently Leland was not the guilty party.
What happened was not expected.....Carvey's spirit, incensed that the wrong character was accused, appeared immediately....and killed Leland anyway
...and then, to make matters worse....
Supernatural happenings afoot? We have to finish the game, as soon as we can schedule, was the unanimous decision.
And so ends 2021, with a scary portent for the future.
Yeah, more Chosen Men, Pumpkin & Mushroom hordes crossing over genres, a Cold War era Micro game, more AD1666 on the horizon. Here's to clean brushes and good die rolling.
Happy New Years, everyone!
