Well met!

On 5/16, chas and I met to formally playtest Kha for SoV.





We utilized the 16 Card Draft, with the specific sets of cards that can be found here.





We managed to play 6 (10 Round) games, 2 per set of cards, on a map patterned after Sirocco by Mad_Wookie, as follows:






Game 1


chas' army: Akumaken, Red Ants of Aunstrom x 2, Chen Tang, Cormin the Dark.

kolakoski's army: Jarek Guy, Venoc Vipers x 2, Estivara, Kha.




Kha was strong and lucky. Round 3: Kha puts 4 wounds on Chen from height. Round 6: Kha kills Cormin. Round 7: Kha kills Akumaken. Round 8: Kha finishes off Chen (and kills numerous Ants). kolakoski wins with 175 points remaining.






Game 2

kolakoski's army: Samuel Brown, Racheim, Garret Burns, Teeth of the Makwa x 2.

chas' army: Cyprien, 53rd North Carolina Sharpshooters x 2, Seleena, Kha.





Cyprien was, in retrospect, too strong in this set. Kha defended well, killed a couple Teeth and put 4 wounds (with Poison) on Racheim before Racheim Tripled him to death. kolakoski wins with 70 points remaining.






Game 3

chas' army: Q10, Crixus, Iron Golem, Blade Dancers x 2.

kolakoski's army: Gurei-Oni, Microcorp Troopers x 2, Locksley, Kha.





Kha kills 3 Blade Dancers, then falls to Q10. Crixus, although severely wounded, got the Talisman of Defense, but chas retreated him, and he was not needed thereafter. chas wins with 440 points remaining.






Game 4


chas' army: Van Nessing, Tomb Skeletons x 2, Kumiko, [James Murphy?].


kolakoski's army: Prince Al'Kahora,

Red Ants of Aunstrom x 2, Mindflayer, Kha.





The Mindflayer won this game all by himself, rolling 17, 19, 17 on 3 consecutive Enslave 17s! It was all over before Kha got an OM. kolakoski wins with 295 points remaining.






Game 5

chas'
army: Cyprien, Garret Burns, Seleena, Mohican River Tribe.

kolakoski's army: 20th Maine x 2, Morgoloth, Patrick Ferguson, Kha.





Kha put a couple wounds on Cyprien, but Cyprien was unfazed, and I had drafted no real counter to him. He killed Kha - and practically everything else, ambushing Morgoloth and catching numerous 20th Maine without Hold Ground defensive boosts. chas wins with 325 points remaining.






Game 6

kolakoski's army: Quasatch Hunters, Gurei-Oni, Q10, Kha.

chas' army: Deathwalker 9000, Major X17, Microcorp Agents, Crixus.





Kha killed Major X17, a Microcorp, and got lucky against the Deathwalker, then died to a height boosted Microcorp barrage. chas wins with 190 points remaining.





In Summary

Game 1:
kolakoski wins with 175 points remaining.


Game 2: kolakoski wins with 70 points remaining.

Game 3: chas wins with 440 points remaining.

Game 4: kolakoski wins with 295 points remaining.

Game 5: chas wins with 325 points remaining.

Game 6:
chas wins with 190 points remaining.

Totals: kolakoski and chas win 3 Games apiece, but chas outscores (in points remaining) kolakoski, 955 to 540.

Kha was fun, mostly lucky, killed his points worth (or more) in a couple of games, inflicting lots of damage in a third. This was a good map for him, as he was able to gain height advantage often and/or hide in the Shadow/Jungle. I was pretty aggressive with Double Assault and Kha was fortunate, for the most part, when I put him in harm's way to use it.
