Diceni 2018

Gosh, I thought I'd published this months ago but there it was languishing in my "drafts" folder!

Sunday 6th May 2018 saw the Diceni games show taking place at the Forum in Norwich.  A few companies I hadn't seen there before: Sarissa Precision; Ainsty Castings; The Assault Group to name but three.  Various games in progress too, here is a small sample...

Parano Miniatures "Mythos" game - Lovecraftian otherwordly creatures fighting heroic humans teetering on the brink of madness...

 A Star Wars game - don't hold out much hope for the Rebel forces facing what looks like 2 Imperial Star Destroyers, 2 Victory Star Destroyers plus an Interdictor Cruiser!

Some sort of Japanese Samurai game.

A battle against vicious alien creatures, though the game was still to start when I was there.

Thanos vs the Avengers near a crashed TIE Interceptor?

A different Mythos game - an absolutely fantastic board but completely spoiled by the use of unpainted miniatures!  Honestly, I really don't understand some people.

Gangs of Rome.

Escape from the Dark Castle - very much a Fighting Fantasy vibe on this one, I'd have stopped for a go if I'd had more time.  I've played it with my friend Graham since then, a co-operative game, old school fun and almost every game has been very, very close (and we lost every time!).

Having a 3-year-old in tow does make it slightly difficult to appreciate everything that is going on but maybe I'll get a better chance next year?
