Had another really fun game at the club the other night.
Deploying out of our VTOL to investigate the weird alien glowy-things.
'Oh God I said that out allowed' Steve put on a fun game for us all, using his own rules (that were really rather good) based on the X-Com computer game. I've never played X-Com before, but the other people playing the game who had agreed that the rules really had the 'feel' of the video game.
Tactical Petter-Pot manoeuvres in action.
Even though I dident know the background, it was a hoot-and-a-half. Our squad of four rookie troopers dropped into town in our VTOL, with the mission to kill as many of the aliens as we could.
A Shoot-out with some spaceteepaste eaters hiding in cover.
The game was fun, using a simple but very enjoyable mix of D10 and D6 mechanics that was a real breath of fresh air after all the overtly intense and complicated wargames that I have been playing recently.
Everything goes to crap as the big nasty aliens, with their bigger nastier guns, kill everything.
I did die quite early on, but I didn't mind as it was still fun to watch, and their is a pub directly across from the club.
If at first you don't succeed, drink, drink and drink again...
