Monsters vs. Monsters: This was a brilliantly daft and fun start to the weekend. Spending half of the game just making fun of Morgan (played fantastically by Abe) with Jayden (Nick, it’s always a laugh with you) was perfect. Preparing to scare jump the ‘seniors’ and somehow getting instead the Tooth Fairy, and then a Christmas tree was definitely my top moment of the game.
Captain’s Table: I was a little unsure going into this of how I was going to pull off playing a Romulan but in the end it seemed to work out. Making polite chit-chat (and dropping Sci-Fi references every 10 seconds) with an Alliance officer and a Starfleet captain helped realise the brilliant scale of the game.
Bombini Bombus: 3 hours of Communism lectures, in a Latvian accent, with Bee puns. I don’t know how we pulled it off, but everybody else seemed to love it, and our Pollen and Hope dances. Dave, Freddy and Tim, you guys were the perfect companions. Viva la Beevolution! Emily, congratulations on making your Chimera nightmare my favourite game of the weekend.
The Rose and the Dragon: I was really nervous about this in the last hour leading up to the game beginning. The Great Hall was initially very slow, but over the course of the game it slowly ramped up until everything exploded right at the last minute. Easily the best moment was Lord Robert de Vere sitting the Baroness down to explain how he had proof her family line was illegitimate, only for her to immediately turn to her Captain and give the order to attack his army. Just perfect. I can’t thank the players enough, you pulled it off better than I could have hoped. My only wish is that I could have seen more of the other areas, but what I did see looked amazing. Anna, congratulations on the set dressing. Everything looked incredible.
As a slight aside, if you have any feedback about The Rose and the Dragon, particularly pertaining to The Great Hall please message me. Good, bad, suggestions for things that could have been done better, please get in touch.
Slash: What happens in Slash stays in Slash. That said, more or less anything Patch said forced myself and much of the rest of the game into fits of laughter every damned time. That, and that ritual. Here I am indeed!
No Quarter: Such a brilliantly tense game to finish the weekend off with. Our little hidey-hole looked amazing, why did everybody have to come and ruin it? I loved the dynamic with the rest of the Family unit, thank you to all of you and especially to Russ. Sorry I had to go and get shot so dramatically like that
