HEX Game Last Night

Last night, the Friday night gaming group met again, and Nick Roberts continued to run the Hollow Earth Expedition scenario that he has us currently involved in. For those who want to know what came before, just follow the link.

I had a terrific time playing HEX in Nick's game for some four or five weeks, and loved every minute of it. It's so rare that I get to play in a game at all, that I treasure these times. The pacing of the game was a bit uneven in places, no more so than in last night's finale of the scenario, but that's to be expected in HEX. While it's fine to have the action almost constant in a four-hour demo of the game, it's impossible to keep up the pace during the course of a multi-session scenario in a campaign setting. I thought that Nick did a tremendous job of running the game, and look forward to the next time I get to play HEX. (And there had better be a next time, right, Nick??, spross??)
