Battle Report: Ice 9

The almost usual suspects got together two Saturdays ago for our first game this year.  I had been working on a new table-setting for a while and this was its debut.  Also debuting was Chuck, a new player who had been introduced to MFZ last year but hadn't had a chance to play yet.

Here's a few pictures of the aftermath.


Thoughts & Observations:
  • This was Chuck's first game.  We really threw him in the deep end.
  • The final round saw several lead swaps.
  • In fact, this was a competitive game from beginning to end.
  • All of Chuck's Frames were made from Architek sets.
