We had another visit from @[email protected] today. Beanie barked a bit more than he has previously but it'd been a while, and it was more of an "I'm excited" kind of thing and not "Oh god who is this!"
We played our standard game of Warhammer Underworlds, me playing Lady Harrow's Mournflight (the spirits), Kristina playing Myari's Purifiers (the elves) and @[email protected] playing The Grymwatch (the ghouls) for the first time. Despite a shocking start from @[email protected], he staged a hell of a comeback and the final score ended up with me on 11, him on 9, and Kristina on 8.
It's been quite a while but we played some more Warhammer Underworlds tonight! The Crimson Court (vampires) versus Myari's Purifiers (elves), I played the vampires which I realised I hadn't actually played before, and won 10-5 despite a very poor start.
Another visit from @[email protected], another game of Warhammer Underworlds! Beanie was really good, we didn't even need to break out the treats to get him to stop barking.
The Underworlds game was very one-sided, Kristina won 12-7-7 and I only scored my last three glory at the VERY end of the whole game.
We were going to go play some X-wing at a friend's place with my new play board, but he wasn't feeling up for it so Kristina and I played some Warhammer Underworlds instead! Aelves versus filthy goatmen, and despite a strong start, it all fell apart at the end for me thanks to some terrible rolling on my part (and some really lucky rolling on Kristina's), and she won 11-9.
Got our Warhammer Underworlds on again tonight! Kristina went back to the aelves and I played Ironsoul's Condemnors. The final score was 10-7 to Kristina, but it was not remotely as close as it sounds, I REALLY need to go in and tweak the Condemnors deck. Lotta suck in it that needs removing.
We had another visit from Ben today, played more Warhammer Underworlds, a 3-player game this time. Ben absolutely smashed it this time, and won 13-8-1 (yes, I scored exactly one single glory, EVERYTHING went poorly and I got all the cards at the exact wrong time).
Beanie was a bit barky as expected, but we'd also just had a mattress delivered so he was already a bit anxious.
We had a visit from Ben today! 😮 Beanie definitely remembered him, though we gave him a full dose of the calming medicine and he was still barky to start with but calmed down faster than we expected.
Played another game of Warhammer Underworlds which was a very low-scoring game, mostly because nobody was able to kill each other because both people kept rolling crits on the attack but then also getting them on defense.
Tonight's game of Warhammer Underworlds was an absolute rollercoaster. We went for the core Direchasm warbands, by the end of the first round it was looking like an absolute blowout for Kristina, she was up 6-0, and was in the lead up until the very end of the last round. I managed to scrape in with all three of my objectives in hand at the very end of the game, and it ended up being a win for me at 12-7.
Another night of Ben over for Warhammer Underworlds and dinner and getting Beanie used to having people over, and it was a smashing success. It only took Beanie maybe 15 minutes to calm himself down (we gave him the same amount of calming medicine as last time), and have booked in another night for the same again, so really interested to see how that goes.
We got some new medicine for Beanie to give him before someone comes over, to hopefully stop him freaking out and barking the whole time. Ben came over for dinner and a couple of games of Warhammer Underworlds, and I'm delighted to report that the medicine worked a treat! Beanie did his usual barking to start with, but he was able to calm down afterwards and we had a lovely quiet evening!
We're going to schedule some more games and visits from Ben and hopefully get Beanie used to people again, and fingers crossed can taper off the medicine so we can have people over to our house like we used to be able to without needing to give Beanie anything at all. 🤞🏻
