Reports from Roswell-Thanksgiving Edition

December 1st, 2017

Friends and fans sent in some of their ROSWELL 51 game recaps. I’m always excited to receive these after-action reports, as it’s fun to see how players get caught up in the story and the game’s cinematic mechanics. Here’s two Roswell reports received this week – thanks for sending these in Joe and Mike!

Roswell Report, Case#112617-1 (Joe M, NJ)

“So, just played Roswell with the kids and they like to create all kinds of back stories and relationships between characters. So, Ricky, the scout, was doing well through Reels 1&2 until he was taken by the aliens (and came back as a Familiar Face). The kids decided that Private Green (WAC) was Ricky’s Mom…when she returned from duty at the base, Ricky was missing. Long story short: Reel 3, Ricky is on the screen, Private Green’s turn. She decides to “Give my boy some peace”…and ROLLS SNAKE EYES!!!!! Headshot! Ends his suffering and alien abduction in absolute dramatic effect! Emotional and dramatic and SO cinematic!!!”  << Wow – a classic horror movie moment for sure! Adding backstories and naming characters elevates the game action! >>

Roswell Report, Case#112617-2 (Mike M, IN)

“Got a chance to play some R51 tonight with John, our sister and brother-in-law. I was able to whittle away John’s survivors down, so, that right at the beginning of Reel 3, he joined me as an alien player (which triggered the Turning Point).

Reel 4 was where it all fell apart for the survivors… it came down to my BiL’s Coroner and Robot and my sister’s Scientist. With only a 2 Creepy Pods, Alien Spear and Payback cards showing on screen, all the survivors needed to do was eliminate that 2 Creepy Pods and it was game over… it didn’t happen. I got another round of full attack with my four throngs and eliminated the Scientist (adding to the alien players once it came back around to my sister). John was able to finish off the Coroner thus triggering Last One Standing for the Robot.

Robot’s final action was attempt to attack… not to rest and gain spoints… he was unsuccessful in his attack. Next up, my sister took the 2 Creepy Pods and attempted to get the Head Shot… no luck… then it was back to me. The Robot put up a mighty effort but ultimately fell to the onslaught of my many attacks taking blows that would have felled a lesser mechanical masterpiece … It’s circuits fizzled and fried and it became no more than a monument to man’s attempt to deter the alien invasion.  Good game had by all!” << Awesome closing scene, Mike! >>

Roswell 51-The Alien Warlord Appears!

November 22nd, 2017

Sharing this game recap from a new friend who purchased ROSWELL 51 at PAX Unplugged and cracked it open at home: “In an epic & cinematic conclusion to our movie, the Scientist faced the Alien Warlord with the recovered ray gun… The Warlord had been burnt, blasted by a shotgun, and chased off with dynamite, but true to old school B-movie form….he kept coming back. And with the final seconds of the film playing, and Roswell facing grim odds, our hero scored an annihilating hit that destroyed the alien warlord for good and saved the people of Roswell. End scene! Fade out.” Thanks for sharing this, Joe!
