If you have been reading this blog you already know that I like numbers. So here we go:

This year I played 26 tabletop games, 9 games of 40K, 9 games of Warhammer Fantasy and 8 games of HOTT. Three of these games were team games.

I played 25 times with Krüger, twice with my cousin Sven and twice with Patrick.

I won 11 games, lost 11 games and 4 games were tied.

Apart from the little accident we had two weeks ago, it was a good gaming year. Let's see what happens in 2013!

Wargaming Disaster

high elves

Yesterday night Krüger and I met to play HOTT.

After I had prepared the battlefield and gaming materials, I went away for a minute, leaving my 4-year old daughter and Krüger in the room with all the miniatures. I suddenly heard a loud noise. Somehow Lina who was taking pictures of our armies with her Fisher Price camera managed to tear down the gaming board with Krüger standing right next to her. She was crying. My HOTT army was on the floor, the miniatures mostly damaged. The board had landed on Lina's foot. Fortunately she was ok after a while. But it will probably take me a couple of weeks to repair my miniatures. Not cool.

I was luckier playing the game. Krüger was the defender and had to deploy his troops first. I divided my army, placing one part on the left side, the other on the right to avoid getting in contact with Krüger's general and his knights which he had placed in the centre. The plan worked. I destroyed 6 of his elements, not loosing one myself, and won the game.
