Marital Strife

Played my first game of Brikwars with Mrs_Bait last night.  It was a success, there will be further games.

I played as the Children of Dew, led by the Almighty Benny Gesserit.  He is supported by two infantry men and two Sour-Dew-Kar.  She played as the Hammer Gang, no army pic though.
Image

The Children of Dew set up in this abandoned structure to defend their precious Dew.
Image

But the forest is full of Hammer Gang members, hoping to steal the can for themselves.  The Hammer Gang boss, Mrs. Peen, is here; she has the biggest hammer.  The hammers are not their penises.
Image

The Sour-Dew-Kar venture into the forest to find their prey.  They find them and fail to kill them.
Image
Image

Immediately, the Hammer Gang swarms them.
Image
Image

It is at this point my wife starts to understand the appeal of Brikwars.
Image

These guys throw their hammers, but all three hits are absorbed by the shield.
Image
Image

This guy lands a kill.
Image

This guy tries, too.
Image

Just not my day, I guess.
Image

The Almighty Benny Gesserit fires into his can of refined Dew, causing a natural geyser to erupt under a gang member's feet.
Image
Image

These guys pick up their hammers and try again, failing again to kill the elite Sour-Dew-Kar.
Image
Image

"Back to the trees!"
Image

This guy tries out some new weapons.
Image

There's a bunch of double-fisting.
Image
Image

This guy finally makes his mark, everyone else whiffs.  At this point I was going to use my feat to call for reinforcements but I had told my wife at the beginning that she couldn't hold guys in reserve, so I lost that ability.  The reinforcements are really cool though, I'll post them later.
Image

The double hammers are very effective.
Image

The double hammer gang members are not.  They once again retreat to the trees
Image

A heroic feat fails.  That's right, I pulled out a stumble die, bitches.
Image

The Sour-Dew-Kar continues to be useless at killing.
Image
Image

The infantryman kills double hammer guy.
Image

Repeated blunt force trauma finally pulps the Sour-Dew-Kar.  I was going to just toss the whole dude back in the bag at which point my wife said, "But I want the weapons!"  So the weapons were all that remained of my elite guard.
Image

Mrs. Peen picks up the hammer but cannot do anything with it.
Image

Some thrown hammers make short work of my infantryman - I guess the helmet was just for show.
Image

The Almighty Benny Gesserit attempts a feat but fails, instead getting thrown clumsily by a gush of Dew to the ground.  ("And he drops his weapons!" said my wife.)
Image

In a bit of anti-climax, this Hammer Gang member shoots him dead.  He's never seen a shield before, I guess.
Image

Thank you for your consideration.  As always, here is my empty promise of more to come:  More battles to come!

Your wife seems to have caught the hang of it pretty quick. :) This is probably the best possible outcome, I remember playing Brikwars with my sister years ago, and winning, and she didn't want to play it again afterwards. :why:

:protip: Always lose your first demo battle in order to lure your pal into further playing the game.

I once played a game with my mum, I got the 1st kill and she sighed audibly and was like: "Ooooh ok"
After that I didn't get a single kill and she killed all my guys, we still didn't play another game though.
