So we had our SAGA day after, ended up with 8 people which I thought was pretty good. Never managed to finish off the whole thing, but we got 2 of the games done and everyone seemed to enjoy it so that was pretty successful.
I never played after so I don't really have any reports of the games, just a bunch of pictures.
In round 1 we had 4 games, so every 3 feet of the table is a separate game. This was basically the learning the game mission, we had a bit less experienced then I would have thought but since I was not playing I could answer questions more easily, and Jeff really helped out on the far side.
12 feet of darkages, Vikings vs Normans in the closest game, the Anglo-Danish vs Vikings, Saxons vs Scots, and then Normans vs Scots on the far end. I think the winners were Vikings, Danes, Scots, and Normans going down in order.
For round two all the games doubled in size, and we were then playing the Challenge. This one has the warlord for each side out in the middle ready for a duel and the troops have to race in and rescue them and kill the other guy.
I think the closer battle ended up in another Danish victory as they killed the opposing warlord. The far game ended up as a draw basically, by the wording of the scenario it was technically a Viking victory but no one really had the upper hand.
Some of the other guys had a war of 1812 Naval battle going on.
So lots of activity going on for the last meeting of the year.
