Saga: First Saga 2 game at WWarriors GC


Last night Luke and I went to the WWarriors GC and played Saga, it was Luke's first game and my first with the Irish. So, learning as we go along.


We made some mistakes as I have bits of Saga 1 stuck in my head it seems.


Vikings ready to battle.


A rather punishing combat between our Hearthguard units ended with 2 dead a piece and a Fatigue also.


My dags were in the wrong place and wrong time, about to snatch failure from the jaws of defeat.



The Hearthguard units had another go and this time destroyed each other, then the Irish warriors had an incredible throw and removed 8 Vikings with their javelins, with help from Fir Bolg and 2 extra combat dice, but were then exhausted due to Odin being used on them. 



The Viking Berserkers then charged the Irish warriors and defeated them but also lost 3 of their number. 


 The second Irish warriors unit by the trees moved up and shot the remaining Berserker, while the Irish Warlord used his Javelins and then a combat to kill the Viking Warlord.


The Viking archers sniped off the Dag handler and that pretty much ended the game. We called it a draw as it was so close and it was a bit of fun to get us started. Luke seemed to enjoy the game, which is always good.


I have re-read many rules this morning and realised we made some silly mistakes but on the whole not too bad, looking forward to a re-match in a few weeks.
