Chaos Cup 2022

After four games, I’m mentally exhausted, but they were all good matches. My first was a draw, against Skaven. I did my best to win but couldn’t equalize in the first half, had to eke out a draw in the second.

I got lucky early on, knocking two of them out (one of which stayed out for the whole game) and then held on for eight turns to get it to 1-0. I’d injured five or six of his players by the end, and although he could have equalized, I managed to get in, sack the ball carrier and then dodge out (on a 3+, 3+, 2+, 2+, with a 2+ to go for it to go up 2-0, my first win of the day.

In the evening, went for dinner with seven people from Fumbbl at a posh steak and seafood restaurant over the street from the hotel. My wife was out getting Chinese for dinner, while I had meat of the month for a second time … crikey. And so to bed…
