Chicagoland Halloween Game
« on: 04 October 2021, 21:33:34 »
Hello,

My annual Chicagoland Halloween themed Battletech game will be on Sunday, October 24. We will start around 11. We will likely break for lunch around 1 then resume after that until about 6 (store closes at 7 on Sunday). This will be at Games Plus in Mount Prospect.

Thank you for giving me the excuse to not go to Rock Con or Dragon Fall.  I've already committed the PTO for the weekend so I'm in for this.

So, here is all the info you get ahead of time this year.  :brew:

You can bring your own mech(s) but you will only play 1 at a time. When it dies you can come back with a different one. I will have random mechs/sheets for those who can't bring their own.

Mechs will be balanced to the scenario when you arrive (not telling you how they will be balanced so tread carefully if you go super extreme one way or another).

Bonus points will be given for Halloween themed mechs. This can just be mechs with Halloween names. This can also be mechs painted in a Halloween theme. Or both & you get double points. (ex: A Ghost mech painted as a ghost might qualify for both). You will have to make your claim for the points to me at the game. So... be compelling.

The game will be hexed. It will use Battlemech Manual rules plus our usual Chicagoland optional rules. We will use card initiative.

Plus, it will use all the fun craziness I have planned for this scenario but you don't get to know that until you arrive. :brew:

That's what I was about to ask is what do I need to bring along?  Looks like my "Headless Horseman" Atlas will be on the table.

goes into the basement to find his Headless Horseman Atlas and finds the Captain Kirk and his 2 Red Shirts (Atlas + Commando + Dervish),  and the Pikachu Awesome and Ditto Imp.  6 mech sheets printed out.  Ready to get my mechs headcapped early and often.

I've printed these out for you if no one else has.  I've only printed out the base variants though.

Definitely was fun.  Quite a few boxcars rolled there weren't they.  Heh,  2 PPC reflection head hits on turn 1?  Yeouch.
