On the Table: October 19-25, 2020

October has been a busy month for us here at Overlords HQ, and so we haven’t been able to post much (or play much). This week should allow for us to return to posting here, and I’m hoping to hear from a few guest Meeples we’ve bene talking to. In the meantime, here’s what we played last week:

In the Dreamlands, you can be whoever you want to be. Jim Culver wants to be Lando.

Arkham Horror: The Card Game – We’re finishing up our playthrough of Campaign-A of The Dream Eaters, which we are playing alongside some friends who are playing the B-campaign. After we complete one more scenario and check back in with our friends over in the waking world, I hope to have a review of the entire cycle.

Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion – I FINALLY hit level 5, and if you’re playing JotL, you know what that means! I’m the Hatchet, so it means less than it does for, say, the Demolitionist, but still, level 5, y’all! We played “The Gauntlet,” and that’s about as much as I’ll say to avoid spoiling this one. Check out our review HERE!

Sentinels of the Multiverse (Digital Edition)Handelabra Games were having a huge sale on Sentinels of the Multiverse stuff, so I picked up everything I didn’t already have except for the OblivAeon expansion. Sentinels is probably my favorite port of a boardgame to iOS, and I just got so much content that I don’t even know where to start.

Talia FINALLY uses her climbing potion to get a drop on our enemies.

Dungeons & Dragons – We played what could be the last D&D game for the foreseeable future (though we made plans for the next session). What’s there to say? We had a huge fight with mechanical snakes; we smashed a couple of stone golems, I got beat up, healed, beat up, healed, and then beat up; and Em’s character (Talia, our rogue) FINALLY used the climbing potion she bought almost a year ago to the day of this session (a potion that she has tried to use in every session since). It was a momentous occasion.

History of the World – I’ve been playing History of the World over at GamesByEmail with the same friends from the Arkham Horror campaign (as well as a few others). I’m in second place after 5 Epochs, but I suspect that that’s about to change. I really like the asynchronous nature of a game by email…it takes a lot of the stress away from playing a heavier game.

What have you been playing? Drop us a note below, or find us all over the internet via our linktree, and remember: your Meeple Overlords command you to play! Games! (OK, that’s not the catchphrase…I’ll go back to work on it)
