My Wednesday group has been on a bit of a nostalgia kick recently. In Her Majesy's Name has been put back till after the spring and summer holiday season.
Monsterpocalypse has been hanging around unplayed for a few years after and initial flurry of interest about five years ago. We decided to give it a go again, a few weeks ago.  
David with Lords of Cthul took on Derek with his G.U.A.R.D. force. Here is the initial set up.
The early part of the game saw a race to control buildings with units. These would give an advantage when acquiring power dice for monster combat.
The opposing monsters clash. It was a back and forth battle with lots of brawling and throws with lots of damage to buildings, units and monsters. Both ended up in their ultra form.

The game did not reach a conclusion but was absorbing. It was difficult to get used to the powers and abilities of the units and monsters as well as the effects of destroying buildings. The management of power, boost and action dice was beginning to become familiar. We will certainly have a few more games.
