Righty O off we go chaps!
All the teams started play the same distance from the Pyramid and were advised there were artefacts to be found across tabletop and dangers to be encountered.
At the end of the 12 turns Team Queen Victoria's survivors and their treasures were safely aboard their river gunboat, the remnants of Team Evil were cowering (as evil types do) in the Pyramid's burial chamber their hands tightly wrapped around the artefacts they had discovered and 'acquired' and the last of the British Museum's explorers were scattered over the plain of Dloser but they were now in possession of some artefacts! The victory points were tallied and Team Queen Victoria won the day (as of course in the age of VSF they should!)
Victory Point Tally
Faction Queen Victoria, Alan: 9
Faction Evil, Dave: 7
Faction British Imperial Museum, George: 5
Well an enjoyable evening was had by all! The actual game did not play out at all like my play test but it still worked okay, the point totals were very competitive. Also of note the booby traps had no effect a couple were triggered and caused no damage I've noted that for next time, more lethal booby traps! Now that all the TSOG guys have experienced the FUBAR VSF Pulp rules the next time we play I'll give each player a couple less figures each but use the full Hero Point rules and include many more steam gadgets. Woo Hoo!
