Advent Madness: VS Day 1

Advent Madness Day One


If you haven't already taken a look at the revised Advent Calendar Wars page, you might want to do so now. It introduces Player A and Player B, as well as going over the setup and rules for our little contest...


And so it begins. Player A, having graciously given the rights to the Castle theme to Player B won the right to go first. 

Player A opens her first door

As expected, the first door of the CITY calendar yielded a mini-figure. This chicken-wielding fellow is Player A's HERO. (Double damage and a chance at a stupendous feat per turn)

Lacking any other real options, she places him in the Player A STAGING AREA (the small square at the rear edge of her side of the table)

The Lonely Hero

Player B was eager to start her turn as well. Here she is tearing into her Calendar. (So much for MIB collectibility!)


The Day One Knight Figure becomes Player B's first HERO. (The last figure to emerge will also be a hero, per our rules adjustments. See the Advent Wars page for details.)
Again, with no other real options, the hero goes into the STAGING AREA to await...tomorrow!

Bring it on!

Sure, it's a slow start, but you have to expect that. If you find it comforting, imagine that the two mini-figures shouted threats at each other across the battlefield.
