NIGHT OF THE LIVING SNOWMEN!! A Psycho Slasher AAR

I was invited once again to game at my good friend Mongo's house and thought what better way to celebrate the new year than with a game of murder and body counts!

Enter, Psycho Slasher from Iron Ivan Games!  In Psycho Slasher you get to play the role of a Writer controlling a Slasher attacking Pawns for points.  The Slasher with the most kills wins the game.

 Oh little town of Deathlaham, Pennsylvania.  Brought to you by Mongo.

Snowmen, brought to life by the restless spirits of the dead!
 
 Freezey takes the first victim, sneaking up on a caroler and dealing out death with it's bare, carrot fingered hands!

 Frosty finds a meat cleaver and goes a huntin!

 Freezey is on a roll! Using Off Camera moves he closes in on another victim!

 Dispatching the Pawn, Freezey finds a knife to use in his next attack.

 Frosty still have a rough time at attacking, failed in numerous attempts!

 Success for Frosty!!

 The Police begin to arrive, Officer High Tower unloads on Frosty!!

 Freezey finds a Lawn Mower and chases a caroler into the woods for a big score!

 Frosty, avoiding the cops and collecting weapons is now decked out like Deadpool!

 Police swarm the south end of town with Detective White arriving on the scene!

 A bongo playing hipster is Snared by the Allure of the local MILF.

The MILF goes down!  Like dead, down leaving the hipster to his Doom!
 
Freezey's Body Count, way high and we called the game.  Great stuff!  Really fun to do a holiday themed game and we were done in about an hour, hour and a half.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
