I had opportunity to play 5 games at my LGS for an open gaming event which was awesome. My first game of the day was my worst ever. It's a strange phenomenon that whenever someone completely new to the game is playing I always find myself being hosed with how cards are drawn despite my normal play ability and no included elements of versus play. Yesterday's game proved to be no exception...
Mansion: 1 Boss, 4 Events / Tokens, 30 Randoms
Character: Cindy Lennox
Ending Score: 1 Decoration... 1 DECORATION!! XD
Basically cards were not lining up. I can't remember specifics, but I think I hurt myself by taking damage early on because I had a -20 Health cap soon into the game. My cards continued to not work in my favor for buying, trashing or exploring at any one time. When I finally get a good hand to action chain > explore, the player to my right explores and gets the Red Female Zombie and picks me to not play actions. Several Turns later I can finally explore I kill my one zombie at which point the lead player has 14 Decorations and the 2nd player probably not far behind. Several more turns and I can finally explore again >> Wesker. There are less than 10 Cards in the mansion I have Max Health of 30 and 2 players already have more decorations than are left in the mansion. I rage quit and let players finish, lol.
I didn't do anything different than I normally would have (which usually works well) and plain dumb luck screwed me over the whole time, XD
