Ipy and the Jungle of Fear (Pulp Alley AAR)


 After along time I watched the wonderful videos from Dave at Pulp Alley on game play, and was infused to try again I opened my files and re read now with a better understanding of the game (I hoped). so I set about  playing a game I read and purchased the solo deck and  thought this would be the  test game of my new found knowledge.
My  leagues I had already, Ipy the Pharaohs  favourite and her companions against the  un-dead  company of the dreaded Akanaton. To find the blood gems  lost in the jungle after a ritual.
 Akanaton, Anck Su  Namun, 2 guards  2 cobras 3 gangs of Zombies and 2 Robbers
 Ipy, Ast her adventurer friend, 2 bodyguards a group of slave girls and  chip the  Dog
basic starting scenario 4 plot points perisl near the points
 Akanaton and his  un-dead enter the area "Find the  gems my followers"
 Ipy rushes into the   land intent on getting the gems before the  dreaded one.
 A cobra slides forward to find victims 
 the Tomb robber advances inot the camp seeking the gems
 Anck Su  Namun passes the perils and grabs the first point her power brushing aside any peril
 Akanaton enters the camp  issuing orders to move fast and  get the prizes
 Ipy spots the  lurking Cobra and strikes with her  throwing stones
 the  reptile is out of the game
 The robber spots the slave girls and attack thinking poor defenceless girls  
 Ast gets past a plot point and  is wounded in the process 
 A gurad fails and is down trying to grasp a gem
 the slave girls  fight  the robber he is outnumbered and realise his folly, he falls to there  skills

 another robber falls to Ipys stones

 Akanatons magics fell a loyal bodyguard
 A guard rushes the slave girls 
 Chip dives into a mob of Zombies
 But is taken out by there claws and teeth
  a loyal bodyguard is surrounded
 Ast now recoved recives another group of  Undead who race at her
 she falls on there first attacks

 But rises and  dispatches the un-dead in a sweep of her blade
 the slave girls  fall as the guard is knocked out the   evil cobra sealing there fate
 Ipy saves the  Loyal bodyguard from the last un-dead
   Anck Su  Namun gets another plot point, but is spotted by Ast
 Ipy seeks her friends who are fallen around seeing Ast attack   Anck Su  Namun 
 the  fight ensues, dark magic against  hardened steel
 a guard falls attempting the  final plot point
 Ast and   Anck Su  Namun drop each other as the  last #cobra seeks an easy kil on the fallen  fighter

 Akanaton grabs the plot point  he believes he has victory
but the  Cobra falls to a weakened Ast and then both her and   Anck Su  Namun are out of the game, leaving there 3 plot points
 Ipy grabs the  final plot points giving her 3 to Akanatons 1 victory to the  brave girl

Conclusions, really enjoyed it and found it flowed very well the solo cards are great. I believe i have mastered the concepts about 85% and  will now play more.
Thank you Dave and co for the  push back inot the game......

FIST FULL OF BLOOD (Dracula's America game)

 Got the new Osprey Dracula's america gamer book, and was eager to give it a good  go. I had tried the combat system and  was delight with the contents of the book, I as always have ideas in my head  so laid out 2 posses one good the other Vamps and decided to set in a town full of Zombies, the name of the town changed so much it was lost. the war between the dead and the Vampires had caught the attention of count Zero and his band of darkness. The heavenly host had  called the  warrior Una Tye to  destroy the  count and the un-dead in one  fight, she gathered her friends and other host agents to wipe the  dark out of the town
 Count Zero, Miss Abby and 4 vampire fledglings and 2 gun men
 Miss Tye, Cassandra the heavenly Seraphim , Annie and  Drago and his posse of outlaws, the Zombies i placed in the town and would attack anyone close. playing scenario 1 and begin the carnage.
 Una's  people take up places and vantage points
 Cassandra and the rifle men take  to the roofs
 Zeros  gang  sneaked into town
 He leads and  dives inot the  frey
 Blowing a zombie  away and feels confidant he will deal with the undead.
 Cassandra lands on a wagon and drops a zombie who rises slowly form the gunshot
 Miss Abby gunslinger elite  blasts a path inot the town dropping the  Zombies
 Una  shoots down the risen zombie who rises again the un-dead wont stay down
 Abby gathers the vampires to wipe the town clean
 Zeros rampage  goes un-checked as he  shoots down the advancing zombies
 more fall to his six shooters
 Abby stands beside him and  takes out more 
 the vampires make short work of the  living dead
 Cassandra spots Count Zero and  blazes away with her silver pistols
 The count is struck and snarls contempt at the angel, "destroy them my children he  cries"
 the vampires take to the roofs and  to flank the   heavenly host
 Abby shoots down poor  Mary, joyful in her wake
 a gun man falls to a stalking zombie who rips him apart
 Miss abby faces the heost and  laughs blazing away at them
 Cassandra finds her self confronting Zero and his Vampires
 Una stands off and in a shoot out Miss Abby falls

 Cassandra lands on the hang mans  post and is attacked with claws and fangs she faces them head on 
 Dispatching both vile females in the  bloody melee

 exhausted and  wounded she is victorious 
 Drago finishes off Miss Abby
 and then faces a gun ma in deadly  gun battle
 Una shoots him down
 A furious Count Zero  opens fir on Cassandra  felling the host on a  blaze of  gunfire
 his minions  fallen around him he  cries to the remaining  posse to  attack without mercy
 Annie is swamped by the  vampires
 Ned fires at the standing vampires
 Zero faces Una and  she gets the drop and shoots him down
 is it over? 
 no the Count as all good vampires raises up and guns blazing shoots down Una.
 he smiles and slowly walks then  kneels
 and drinks the blood of the fallen  host leader, restoring his power and wounds, the host posse fall back , Zero is victorious!
Score was 13 to 8 , very enjoyable I maybe got things wrong on certain issues but was a good and fun game. like most new skirmish they create there own story lines. liked the combat and how it played very much . Recommended to any who has a collection of vamps and  cowboys or VSF  or anything really its that adaptable. 10/10
