Moving into Frankfurt Apartment

Finally, everyone is in the new apartment. While Bad Homburg is fantastic, it’s a bit pricey for us. The Frankfurt apartment is quiet for a big city. We moved the cats and a bunch of our stuff today with some great help. I’m glad this part is done. Now I have a mountain of IKEA furniture to build and unpack.

Stuff arrives!


So our stuff from the US arrived today. I was completely impressed with how smoothly it went. It was honestly easier to move from Boston to Frankfurt than from Indy to Boston. The movers were very nice and very patient with our German. Hooray for things working out.

File this under “stupid”, but I thought I could bring my tv and bring it her and it would work. Nope. I knew about pal vs ntsc as well. Oh wells. Now I’m in the market for a TV.

We have a bunch of stuff yet to unpack and have some IKEA furniture that is yet to be delivered. Then we can bring the cats over and call it complete!

I was very happy to see this playmat again. It will definitely be used.

Dice Masters Frankfurt am Main

So it has finally begun! Yesterday at T3 I expected to meet one person for Dice Masters, but much to my very good surprise, there were 4 people total. Interestingly, only one of whom was German. Two Spaniards (I think), one ‘Murican (f-yeah!), and one German made for a good time. Of_Dice_and_Men couldn’t make it, but when he does in the future, that’ll make 5. I think we could try to rainbow draft with 5. It would be worth a shot.

To keep anonymity I’ll give everyone nicknames.

Once again, I saw a villains team that just performed really well together. I think this groups meta will likely be villains heavy. Stinkfaul der Kalte was present, and so was Black Manta. I was particularly interested in the team the German brought. He played an all War of Light team. It worked really well together.

My team went up against someone who was brand new. I lost, but was very glad to  hopefully bring someone new into the game. My stuff will arrive next Friday so I can start to really build a team! I can’t wait!!

Fist Full of Donuts

That’s the name of the team I’m going to field the first time I play Dice Masters in Germany. I’ve bought the World’s Finest starter, the German version of the Avengers vs. X-Men Starter, and various packs of Uncanny X-Men and World’s Finest. The rest of the collection is still in storage waiting for us to move into our new place. That will happen in May, but until then, I’m working with this (not a complaint).

So without further adieu here is the list…

Fist Full of Donuts

Basic Action Cards

Power Bolt (Kraftwelle)

Call to Action

Characters

Falcon – Samuel Wilson

Catwoman – Antihero

Harvey Bullock – Donut Enthusiast

Ant-Man – Pym Particles

Black Panther – T’Challa

Bane – Professional Criminal

Spider-Man – Webslinger (Netzwerfer)

Hulk – Anger Issues (Wutausbrüche)

The strategy is get in some early damage in and then ramp into Hulk and ping him with Power Bolt for the increase in A if need be. I normally wouldn’t use Harvey Bullock, but he fits the fist type, fits the curve, and I had 3 dice of him. Plus how can you turn down dice with a donut?

Dice Masters Frankfurt

So on April 16th at 2:00 pm 30th at Terminal Entertainment, it looks like the first meeting of Frankfurt Dice Masters will take place! It may only be two or three people, but as long as the dice is rolling, size doesn’t matter (twss?)
