TENTATIVE till I get some interest.

Looking to get some more runs in with Fortune/Glory. Its a 1-8 player game that can be played competitively or cooperatively or in competitive teams. It is adventure game with gear, allies, tons of random events, vile organizations (Chicago Mob, Nazi's, or Cthulu-esqe "Cult of the Red Hand"). You can squeeze a game into 60-90 minutes.

If you are familiar with Last Night on Earth, it uses similar Flying Frog Game mechanics.

Overview
Fortune and Glory, The Cliffhanger Game is a fast-paced game of high adventure, vile Villains, edge-of-your-seat danger, and Cliffhanger pulp Movie Action. Players travel the globe in search of ancient artifacts, fending off danger and Villains at every turn in a quest for ultimate reward. So strap on your adventure boots and goggles, fire up the engines on the seaplane, and grab some extra ammo for your revolver…the Nazis already have a head start and in this race for Fortune and Glory, there’s no prize for second place! 


Gameplay Breakdown
Each player takes on the role of a pulp adventure Hero, hunting down ancient artifacts around the world and collecting Gear and Allies to help overcome the various Enemies, Dangers, and Villains that stand in their way. During each Game Round the Heroes roll off to determine the First Player then all get to Move (starting with the First Player), and then all get to Adventure (starting with the First Player). There are two resources in the game, Fortune and Glory. Heroes collect Glory by defeating Enemies and overcoming Dangers and then spend that Glory to Heal wounds and buy Gear and Allies. They collect Fortune by recovering Artifacts and selling them in cities.
In the Competitive Game, players race against one another to be the first to collect 15 Fortune. In the Cooperative Game, all of the Heroes work together toward a larger collective Fortune total as they race against a Vile Organization played by the game itself.

    Had a great time! Was a bit worried that the first one may be a bit overwhelming, but that wasn't the case!

    I found the rules online and have been reading them this morning. Hopefully this will cut down on explanation time. :)

    Hi there. Can I attend if a.) i've never played, and b.) I've never been to your house? Totally ok if I can't, but thought I'd at least clear it up since I just joined the group.

    March 8, 2014

    • Daniel S.

      Yes and yes.

      March 9, 2014

    • Kelsey S.

      Cool. I'll be there then! If you see a random dude walking around outside in an Orioles hat, that's most likely me (who is lost).

    I am probably already on the list since Heather is my wife.

    Bring what you want. I will not be drinking. I am not against drinking but prefer to binge drink in foreign ports than to drink in moderation at my house.

    I have family in from out of town. Have fun storming the Nazi Zeppelin....

  • Gregory B.

    Should I bring my games?

    March 8, 2014

  • Heather

    Quick question - is this a drink and game group? We have a six-pack earmarked to bring tomorrow, but figured we should check to see if that's OK.

  • Richard J Z.

    I adjusted the time. I am doing TI3 from 1000 to 1400.

    March 5, 2014

    • Daniel S.

      Okay. I'll be there, barring the wife catching me as I sneak out the door ;)

      March 5, 2014

  • Richard J Z.

    I may adjust the time to 1400.

    I have been playing Twilight Imperium 3 pretty religiously the last couple weeks on Sundays.

    March 4, 2014

  • Jeffrey

    Sunday looks good

    February 25, 2014

  • Richard J Z.

    Sure. Lets aim for 1300 EST or 1 PM Annapolis time.

    Also, is it worth having a google calender?

    The Meetup one appears to suck.

    February 24, 2014

  • Heather

    The 9th would work for us.

    February 24, 2014

  • Daniel S.

    I could probably do March 9th. I think I have plans for the 8th.

    February 24, 2014

  • Richard J Z.

    I will check my calender. it should work...Dan comments for Sunday afternoon?

    February 23, 2014

  • Heather

    Next Saturday is Dave's 50th birthday party, so that's out for us. The Sunday afternoon would be doable, though. If not, then I think the weekend of 8/9 March is OK for us too.

    I am game for accents, but it depends on the crowd. We did another run through last night when a RPG group imploded with Dan, Angel, and Scott. It went pretty well but it was still a learning game. It should be very smooth the next time through.

    Pick some dates. I will check my calender if next weekend is good.

    February 22, 2014

  • Heather

    We just watched this on Tabletop the other day. It looks like a lot of fun. A weekend would be much better for us than a weeknight. Just one question - do we have to do the accents? :)

    February 22, 2014

  • Richard J Z.

    Once I get one more we can start picking dates. I am going to try to convince Greg to play again next Monday (taking Monday off now that I have solved some of my manpower issues).
