My friend John Stentz hosts a Halloween-themed game of DMH every October. We played "Dead Man's Hand, Dead Again" with Cowboys versus Zombies last year. This year was "Night of the Undead Man's Hand" with Outlaws versus Lawmen versus zombies. You read that right. Each turn, 3 zombies spawned from a grocery store in the middle of the table and moved to the sound of the nearest gun! It was a target rich environment with Oktoberfest beers, pumpkin pie and lots of laughs. It's a testament to the game that 3 years on, Dead Man's Hand in still in rotation and I'm already looking forward to our next Halloween showdown.
I've got two new SAGA warbands under way. The US Grand Melee is next March and I've got 4 months to paint and train up with a new warband. I'm split on taking the Spanish or Mutatawwi'a. Whatever I take, it'll be another epic event, courtesy of Eric Hagen and all the great players who turn out. This gaming life is a good one!
