It has been a while but she's back! LTL Mom finally got off her duff and came back to the table for a rousing game of ATZ. Previously, we've tried several times, (always unsuccessfully) to complete a "take back" mission so our group of Survivors would have a base of operations and a place to call home. Mom claims we've been setting our sights a little too high with the urban settings so this time she sought out a more likely locale; a trailer park! Being a Woman, a trailer is not her first choice for a home but she's decided that our group of knuckleheads is unlikely to get anything better in the foreseeable future.
For this mission the line up was LTL Mom, LTL Dad, Nick, and Jil who is making his first appearance in the family campaign. Jil now has quite a bit of chain reaction experience under his belt making this crew fairly professional compared to the hodge-podge of beginners we usually have involved. This means no excuses this time!
I didn't realize until I started blogging that some of the pics came out a bit fuzzy, sorry for that.
Dad yells out "Hurry up you girls! Here they come, we're about to have company!" "You can chat about the latest in camo fashions later."
ATZ is a truly brutal game. It always strikes with disaster when you're feeling at your best. It was now that I pointedly reminded LTL Mom why I NEVER like to melee unless ABSOLUTELY necessary! Another fortunate thing was that Jil and Nick weren't screwing around and dropped their Zed cold and activated first next round to come save us. The moral of the story is no matter how high your rep, and how well you play, you better not get cocky in this game!
Mom made another rep level as well! She is now Rep 6. Nick didn't make the cut this time but Jil did and he's already sitting at Rep 5.
Well that was fun! I cannot wait to get Mom back on track for some more games. Now that we have a home base of sorts we can start collecting more junk.
Go play some ATZ!
