I received some nice gifts this Christmas and a few of them were game-related.
First up: Love Letter. This is a card game in which players compete to smuggle letters of devotion to a cloistered princess in an attempt to win her hand in marriage. It comes in a rather nice red velvet bag. I haven't had a chance to play it yet but will report back here when I do.
In passing, I ought to mention that daughter Millie received another card game; Exploding Kittens. We did play that. It's very silly. I won! Yay!
I also received a couple of packs of the excellent Bob Murch's Pulp Miniatures. Unfortunately I've put them away somewhere safe and now can't find them to photograph.
And then yesterday I was passing the WarGameStore at Brimstage (Wirral) with some Christmas money waiting to be spent. It would have been rude not to stop by. I decided to blow some of the cash I received on some more ships for my developing (I won't yet say burgeoning but give it time) X-Wing Miniatures Game collection.
As you can see I got the Most Wanted pack. This is a starter pack for the "Scum and Villainy" faction - smugglers, pirates and the like. It also features third-faction adaptations for some models I don't currently possess but am now very tempted to buy. Clever marketing that by Fantasy Flight Games.
Oh and I also bought a new detail brush and some GW Cadian Fleshtone paint.
