Re: HeroQuest Blood Sport!!!

I've witnessed few upsets myself trying a tournament, such as an Ice Gremlin defeating an Ogre or a common Orc taking out the Ogre Champion.
The key to both of these victories is their movement and the trophies they pick up. The Ice Gremlin can run around the arena, collecting 4 trophies as opposed to 2 for the Ogre. Picking up :blackshield:s and 2x :skull: helped him to stay alive maximize damage, using a hit and run technique.

The Orc got lucky against the Ogre Champion as she danced around too, picking up :skull:s and potions as well. Her first attack was blocked and she was crushed by the Ogre Champion but used a healing potion to stay in the fight. On her next attack she rolled :skull: :skull: :skull: and added the 2x :skull: trophy to the attack. The Ogre Champion failed to roll any :blackshield: and was brought down to 1BP. The Orc was able to move away out of the Ogre Champion's range and run back for another attack, adding 1 more body points of damage, killing the Ogre Champion. Miracles can happen...

Yes the Heroes are involved. I'm not carrying over damage, but any spell caster that uses spells, can only use the spells once. The battle I just finished was actually hero vs hero. I'm also not putting trophies out. I wanted it just base stats and accessories without power ups

The male Rogue comes out 1st. The new male wizard comes out and shoots a Fire of Wrath the rogues way. The Rogue ducks it. He is unable to get a hit on the Wizard, even using his Ambidextrous ability. The Wizard is able to get back to back hits on the Rogue with his dagger, then hurls a Ball of Flame that hits Rogue for 1 damage. The Rogue finally is able to pierce the Wizard with a dagger for 1 hit. Seizing the opportunity, the Wizard casts Courage on himself and finishes off the Male Rogue. The Wizard moves on, but exhausted all Fire spells.

Next match is the Witch Lord vs the Guardian mummy of Fellmarg's tomb

Guardian Mummy wanders out to the arena. The Base Witch Lord, full of confidence comes out and attacks. 4 hits. The Guardian mummy can't defend any, no blocks. The Witch Lord looks strong and moves on.

Next up The Frozen Horror vs a Goblin archer

I had to waver the unbeatable nature of the Witch Lord to make his fights somewhat fair. So the Spirit Blade being the only weapon that can harm him and his immunity spells had to go. I put him up against Tormuk in the first round. It was a fairly close battle as spells didn't really have a lasting effect. However since I'm using trophies, the reposte tile came up. Though the Witch Lord killed Tormuk first, but Tormuk used the Reposte tile to get one last hit and both died. This was convenient for the Crossbowman, who was to face the winner.

Also in the First Round the Ogre Lord defeated a Giant Wolf and Frozen Horror took out a Mummy. They'll be set to fight in the next round. I'm eager for that fight.
Your Frozen Horror will cream the Goblin Archer, since the Horror has formidable movement. However if it were the Ogre Lord fighting a Goblin Archer it would take a long time, but in the size of the arena there's no way the Ogre Lord could keep up with the Goblin's movement or range. Even with the Ogre Lord's diagonal attack I don't think he could catch a carefully spaced Goblin Archer. It would take the goblin forever to get 10 hits on him, but if the Ogre Lord can't reach the Goblin for 1 strike there's a very strong possibility that the Goblin Archer would win.

Goblin Archer enters 1st not sure what to expect. Out comes the FROZEN HORROR! Frozen Horror gets to him and hits with 4 hits and no blocks from the Goblin archer. Frozen Horror lets out a massive roar and is ready for round two. He will face the Base game Witch Lord in a highly anticipated match.

Next up is scout mercenary vs Orc Guard boss from POT 11

Orc Guard boss enters the arena. The Scout comes out after him, but is too nervous to roll a hit. Orc Guard boss connects with the handle of his hammer to her face for 1 hit. Scout swings her Shortsword but is blocked by the Orc. She trys to flee but is Cornered by the Orc Guard Boss, who swings the business end of his hammer to finish her off. Orc Guard Boss moves on to face a Yeti in round 2.

Next up an Abomination vs the Witch Lord from RotWL 10.

The Witch Lord enters 1st. Abomination charges forward and swings but is blocked by Witch Lord. Witch strikes and connects for 1 hit. Using his speed he flees from sight. The Abomination can't reach him on his next turn. Witch Lord zooms in for a finishing blow defeating the Abomination and moving on to the next round.

Next match is Balur the Fire Mage vs Festral the Dread Sorcerer.

If I remember right, Balur has 9MP, it would work against Festral if he tried to use Mind Lock or Mind Burst. So Balur has a few handy spells, but he's otherwise very weak in combat. As long as Festral doesn't go mind-to-mind with Balur he could probably pull it off.

I flip a coin for who goes 1st. Sometimes that 2nd character to go usually is 1st to attack. This has determined the outcome a few times.
