On Saturday afternoon Alan, Craig and I played two games of Saga using scenarios for the Great Hall. Here are a few photos of our games. Craig has now finished the loft and roof of his 4 Ground Great Hall, not that these were used in our games. He reckons it took in total about 20 hours to put together! Apparently Gripping Beast are going to release a gaming mat of the Great Hall at some point, similar to the one they did for Jugula, so that should be more affordable for most.
In our fist game Alan and I played a scenario that was pretty much a Clash of Warlords in the Great Hall with two identical four point Viking warbands, while Craig was umpire. Alan pretty quickly got the upper hand in this game and it didn't take long before both my Hearthguard units and Warlord were slaughtered. In the second game the scenario involved a Saxon raid to kidnap the Viking Earl's daughter from the Great Hall. This was a pretty tough scenario for the attackers to win as even when the Earl's daughter was captured, the Saxon raiders had to escape the Great Hall and then faced with seriously depleted forces, a returning Viking Earl/Warlord and two Hearthguard units! Thanks to Craig and Alan for some fun games.
