We had a go at some Lord of the Rings mini game from Games Workshop the other night.
I made up the scenario and umpired. Nate took the Evil goblins and Howard and Dan played leaders of a dwarf family each seeking the throne in their homeland by returning from the Mines of Moria with the most treasure.
Each dwarf family consisted of the Dwarf King, his son (a slightly better fighter), 2 hearthguard, and 7 regular warriors with mixed weapons. They have to make their way through the mines and collect Dwarven relics on the way. Whomever makes it home with the most will be elected the High King.
I won't divulge the Goblin forces since we have another game to play.
In the last turn Dan figures out how to activate the Dwarven stone golem.
We had to stop here due to time but decided to continue next week. Stay tuned for part 2!
I haven't played LotR SBG in a long time. I gave it a quick read through the day before but still messed up a bunch of stuff. Since it was equal to both sides i don't think it affected the outcome but i will try to correct it next time.
