Battletech at Game HQ Oklahoma City, OK
« on: 10 July 2018, 15:58:13 »
It was time to start a fresh thread that had all the important information about our group on the first post.

Hi, My name is Billy aka Faithless. I am a demo agent in the Oklahoma City, OK metro. We play almost weekly games at Game HQ. This ranges from  campaigns, faction tournaments, grinders, king of the hill, capture the intel, etc. We play most eras. We primarily play Totalwarfare / Battlemech Manual rulesets. For units we use mechs, vehicles and infantry. For terrain we use 1.75in hexed mats with 3d hills, trees, buildings and terrain. We play with many advanced rules but always welcome new players. There is no such thing as a stranger at our game table and often we can get new players rolling dice with us in no time.

Where we play:

Game HQ, Inc
9118 S Western Suite B
Oklahoma City, OK 73139

Main store: 405-691-0509 (after 11am Mon-Sat and after 1pm Sundays)
Game Room Hours: Open late to about Midnight Monday – Saturday.
http://www.gameheadquarters.com/

Game HQ also carries source books, paints, and the new releases from IWM as supplies last. They can also special order minis.

When we play:

Most Thursdays nights. We try to have dice rolling by 6pm and finish around 10pm. We occasionally play on Sundays as our schedules allows. We post our events on the Oklahoma Battletech Facebook Group. The Oklahoma Battletech group also has events posted from different groups throughout the state. I will also post those events here on this thread.

Local Conventions and Special Events:

Members of our group are also active at local conventions. We run events at Soonercon, Tokyo in Tulsa, and have recent expanded to running events at Warlord Games Con. When time allows we also try to participate in Tabletop Day and Extra Life fund raisers.

What does a new player needs to play?

Just yourself! We have extra units, dice etc on hand. If and when you are ready to start building a force on your own we can help point you in the right direction.

If you have any other questions feel free to PM me or post on this thread.

If you would to read some of the post from our old thread  you can view that here.

This Thursday at Game HQ we will have an open game. 6kbv2 any era. I just ask that we do not go too spammy with unit numbers. It would be a good chance to play some units we normally do not use. I know some will likely be bringing some Tripods. 6pm start time.

I hope everyone has a great New Years.

 Our first game of 2019 will be Thursday January 10, 2019 at GHQ, 6pm start time. The game will be our next Total Chaos track.

It looks like roads may be slick this Thursdays and the 17th I will be out of town. So, I will just move our event over a week.

I will run a Wolverine Grinder at Game HQ Thursday March 14. 2019.  I have about 5 Wolverine minis and will bring some others incase we need to proxy. Those that have either of the two new boxsets should have one. Feel free to bring it.

I will provide the record sheets and there will be a random draw from a selection of roughly balance units. When you die you will respawn. All experience levels welcome.

Thank you to the old and new players that joined us tonight. It is nice to know the posts here and in our fb groups are helping bring people to the table. We had 8 players including myself. The grinder of just wolverines was a nice change of pace and easy to put together with the busy week I have had.

Our next scheduled game is Thursday March 28, 2019 at GHQ. 6pm start time.

This Thursday at Game HQ, we are about to kick off a Battletech Clan Invasion Era Tournament. For a few weeks we will meet up and go over rules, have some 5k games to get people used to building units, and answer questions. If you need a faction, let me know and I can help you out with information and minis. The rules are posted in the following link.

Please let me know if you have questions.
