[Pulp Alley Battle Report]: G.I. Joe: The (Phantom Agent) Skull Ring

Some days ago I received my special reward, the Pulp Alley Phantom Agent Skull Ring.
Earn after 10 Battle Reports I've done for PA.

Then I decided to play a Solo Game using the Skull Ring as a major plot point 😉

1983. Somewhere in the jungle of Congo.
COBRA Commander, in his perennial quest for the ultimate weapon, has knew about a mystical giant skull ring that the legends tell it was worn by Titans.
Anyone that could own the Skull Ring would get divine powers. The power of a Titan.
Then he personally led a small force of his cobra troopers with his loyal Storm shadow to the place where the ring should be guarded.
The ring is watched by a tribe of native female warriors. The Bana Tribe. These dark skinned amazons will not tolerate intrusion.
Meanwhile, the G.I. Joes have knew too about the legend about the Skull Ring and that the COBRAs are interested.
Snake Eyes and Timber were sent to investigate.

Overview of the board with deployment of the leagues. Snake Eyes & Timber will be deployed in the second turn):

My 14 years old cat "Ciccio Bastardo" (Fat Bastard) was waiting for some cuddles while I was playing 😉

COBRA Commander: "Follow me! These primitive women will not stop the glorious destiny of COBRA!"  😈
Lt Clay Moore, the last three Tribal Women Warriors and one cobra trooper are KO.
COBRA Commander: "Lieutenant Moore, you disappointed me! You were easily defeated by these savages!" 😒

Snake Eyes & Timber finally arrive, then immediately run to the plot points.

Storm Shadow and his guide easily win the peril.
Storm Shadow: "This crocodile will not stop me..."

Khanysha and Saada join the fight personally. 5 cobra troopers, two tribal archers and the two Tribal Guards are KO.
Khanysha: "How you dare to invade our sacred places?! You strangers must go away or you will be punished!"

Khanysha and Saada defeat the last cobra troopers, the last tribal archers and Scarface are KO too.
Saada: "Coward! Face us! Your weak minions are defeated, now you will be the next!"

Snake Eyes is near to the skull ring now, and Cobra Commander follow him.
COBRA Commander: "The Skull Ring will be MINE! I will not leave it in the hands of you pitiful gi joes!" 😠

Snake Eyes look in silence to Cobra Commander.
Snake Eyes: "..."
Storm Shadow run behind the rock of the ruined temple, ready to claim the ring.
Storm Shadow: "The orders of my master are my law... You will not claim the ring, brother..."

Snake Eyes finally claim the ring, winning the major plot point.
COBRA Commander could not stop him, he is too busy in a fight with Khanysha. Meanwhile Saada charge Timber too, but she is defeated.
COBRA Commander: "The gi joe has claimed the ring! I must stop him! You, Cursed Witch! Let me go!" 😠
Storm Shadow charge Snake Eyes while he was leaving the hill.
Storm Shadow: "We meet again, brother..."
Timber win the minor plot point, while COBRA Commander is still busy fighting Khanysha.
COBRA Commander: "Storm Shadow! You MUST defeat that pitiful gi joe! Don't disappoint me!" 😧 Khanysha: "You will share the same fate of your enemy..."
Timber charge Storm Shadow, however both Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes are down. They lose their plot points.
The joes have lost the major plot point, however timber still hold the minor plot point (1 victory point), then they still are the winner.
Storm Shadow: "This time our fight is a draw, but I will be the winner, next time..."
COBRA Commander: NOOOOOOOooo!! Now I will never rule the World!" 😭
