Hi Folks,

This Friday, I'll be running "Mars Attacks!!"

The invasion fleet has been destroyed and there are no reinforcements coming. Zeta Battalion is facing off against the Word of Blake ROM alone on the cold surface of Mars.

We'll be playing this game using Alpha Strike rules with modifications for low gravity movement! Yep, you'll be seeing Assault 'Mechs moving as fast as a Light 'Mech--if they're willing to risk the leg damage!

Game starts at 6:30p and runs until it's over (or Rob kicks us out). Address for Replay Entertainment Exchange in East Lansing, Michigan can be found on along with the gaming schedule for the rest of the month.

Hope to see you there,

The funny part is, Zeta Battalion actually landed in terraformed Mars' tropical areas. I had to add in an "unusual arctic storm stirred up by some terraforming touch-ups" to explain the freezing conditions experienced by the Dragoons.
