Stylites Game

Hello all.

So last weekend I got together with Alex of Leadballony and we had a few games of Stylites, a game that Alex and I wrote one hot summers day. It was the first time we played on the board I designed and I tell you what it’s a pretty brutal game.

The rules, which you can find here, are very simple allowing for very quick games of stylite hopping, servo skull dodging madness.

One of the things we found was that the penitents that occupy some of the stylites are tough buggers and I found myself being battered off an occupied stylite more than once ( rolling damn 1’s ) ending the game as my character plummeted to the ground with a wet thud.

Get off my Stylite!!

After playing a few two player games we decided to play some four player ones and this is where things got interesting. Hacked servo skulls flying around all over the place! Cruel shoving, bad fumbles and just hanging on for dear life after being smacked around by an insane penitent. All good fun πŸ™‚

game4
I dare you skull- jacker!
game8
Take that! You smelly bastard!
game12
Now come to Papa.

All in all much fun was had and don’t forget to design your own Skull – Jackers and penitents for your chance to win the monster Skull Crab. Here’s some more images from the day. Cheers! πŸ™‚
