I Got the wonderful Children of the corn booklet from Crooked dice , and well I had to have a go!. I pitted the Crow king against one of my 7TV2 favorites Vampirella, The episode based on Field trip and get the maguffin in the middle of the table and escape. or protect it from being stolen. Countdown cards as normal playing 25 ratings, and the new Arcana cards, the card for the Maguffin was the Unholy Tome, so fitted real nice.
Basic layout, using my collection and the nice GW board.
Crow King , 4 Crows, 3 Gabriel Hounds and 3 May Queens.

Hounds and a Mat queen sneak round the back.
The Scientists hope for the best, "Bad feeling about this place":

Seeing the Tome almost gone her calls on the darkness
He peruses with unearthly speed and strikes at Patricia.
Fending him off she is ripped and slashed .
She is no match for him and like the rest falls like Corn this day.
The reaming team scream as Darkness envelopes them and the tome is restored to its place....
Victory to the Crow King...
Very fun game interesting as i found the lesser crow and queens were more a engage and hold with fists and claws being used,. The sides to me were very even and the whole game had atmosphere and content. Great addition and more games to come.....
Vampirella will be back.
