Okay, the game happened last Friday.
However, Austin doesn't ever pay attention to what I say to him, so he showed up with a set of BEATIFUL LEGO terrain that, unfortunately, could not be nicely terraced and made into a slope. Additionally, the other attacking players, Kyle and Max, went overboard when constructing armies, and Austin didn't listen to me when I told him he was on defense, so they didn't need the advantage that the scenario provided.
As we tried to figure out what to do, Kyle interjected, "Screw the cart!" And so I decided that we should do that. They got rid of the cart, and Erik and I just plopped down our castles. Austin had his army all set up already because he wasn't listening when I told him to wait while I figured out what to do for the battle. He probably has no idea that this whole change of plans took place.
So yeah, we just had our armies fight each other. Thus, I retroactively rename the battle "Screw the Cart."
This game had more epic-ness and eye-candy than our last (Fleebnork Pass). Austin is a great terrain builder and his LEGO waterfall was particularly cool. Erik, though a Brikwars newbie, built about 4 times as much stuff as he needed to, most of which consisted of elaborate vehicles that he was, thankfully, willing to part with for the sake of carnage.
There were quite a few funny parts, too. I don't feel like spoiling the surprises before the photos are ready, though.
