More Frostgrave

So my son wanted to play some more Frostgrave... he is definitely a gung-ho gamer. He had a hard time fathoming why we would NOT want to play a full campaign!

Unfortunately this month work has been pretty busy but we did have time to get a game in a couple of weeks ago.

The second game reinforced my perception of the game as a little bit crazy in terms of the possibilities for one-shot kills in-game and one-sided victories throughout a campaign! However, I'm learning to accept it for what it is and just have fun with it. Maybe throughout the course of a campaign this stuff would even out.

Here are some pics from our most recent game. At least in this one I got a couple of treasure pieces before I had to flee!

There were 6 pieces of treasure, and we each secured a couple before random monsters started arriving. They all came in on my side of the board of course :)

We took a few long range shots at each other. I summoned an Imp to attack his warband, but he cunningly was able to bind the demon and then turn it back against me! No more summoning demons for me when my opponent has the "Bind Demon" spell!

Once the monsters started arriving, my warband retreated back and headed toward my board edge to protect my Wizard. He survived with one hit point... yikes!

After taking a casualty from a long range Elemental Bolt, the monsters start arriving...

And then start multiplying...

My son does a victory dance..... Arrgh!


  1. That is a fantastic table! I just had my first game of Frostgrave with my son...he has the same annoying tendency to beat me but this time I managed a draw...lots of fun.

  2. Thanks! The game has been great for "lads & dads" gaming for sure.

    I am sold enough on it that I'll be painting a bunch of models for all of the random encounters and definitely doing a dedicated "Frostgrave" winter themed table. Of course, I probably won't get that done before the supplement comes out and I am behind the 8 ball once again! Hehe!
