On Friday night I played in a Swashbuckler game hosted by my friend Ralph. It is a great game based on the 1980's Yaquinto Board game by the same name. Players plot their moves in six separate steps each turn. It is really interesting to plot out your move and then watch yourself slash away at air as your opponent does something totally unexpected! Actions in addition to swordplay (parry lunge, running lunge, etc.) include interesting things such as throwing chairs and mugs, jumping on tables, even swinging from the chandelier! Really an enjoyable way to to spend an evening with friends. Here are some photos of the game.
The guys who played included Gordon, Eric, Mike, AJ, Paul, Bob and Charlie. Here are the guys around the table.
Have to hand it to Charlie. Only one swordplay move during all three rounds we played and he ended up winning the entire game!!
Thanks Ralph. It was a great time.
