Like the many threads that have blighted this forum since time immemorial, this is for folks playing or looking to play in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

We're usually found every Sunday or so at Generation X Comics and Games in Bedford, with folks usually showing up around 12:00-12:30, with games trying to get started at 1:00.

Our usual games are Battletech (6000 BV, no customs except conventional infantry, all eras and factions welcome, max four artillery tubes if any) or Alpha Strike (400 PV, no customs except conventional infantry, all factions and eras welcome, max four artillery tubes if any), though we will throw down with other wargames on occasion.

So pull up a chair, throw some dice, and remember: Never pick up a mango in a bathroom, it's a fae trap.

As a reminder, Sunday May 15th is going to be a Solaris Grinder. Everybody brings a 6,000 BV lance of four units, with one from each weight class, and we'll see how much stupid stuff we can do on one of the arena maps. :)

I would be up for BT or AS. I would lean to AS but that's me.

I would be up for some Alpha Strike, but it's Mom's Day tomorrow and I have to take care of that.  If I can get there, I will be there by 1pm...if I am not there by 1pm, then I am probably not coming. :)

Operation: STEEL HAMMER. Brought to you by the DFW mechwarriors guild.

What: One of the most important manufacturing worlds in the Inner Sphere, Hesperus II was a primary objective of the Word of Blake’s Operation
STEEL HAMMER, the plan designed to disrupt the Lyran Alliance’s economic and industrial base. Long before attempting to seize Hesperus II, the Word concocted a lengthy invasion plan designed to weaken the Lyran defenses. Although over the years the Lyrans had repulsed many previous attempts to capture the planet, the Blakists aimed to succeed where other invaders had failed.

When: Sunday, May 29th.

Where: Generation X Comics and Games in Bedford, TX.

Rules: Alpha strike. Total Chaos mission: Strike. Optional rules: Variable damage rolls (roll per point of damage). Battletech initiative deck. Miniatures and record sheet provided, just bring dice and a desire to have fun.

Like last time: if you guys have any thoughts, hit me up with them or I'm gonna call this good. Now to work on terrain and the miniatures >:D

Well, unless things change, I’ll be off almost every Sunday starting on the 12th next month. So, in the words of a great man: hold on to your lug nuts, it’s time for an overhaul :D

Darrell asked me to pass along that he will be running some old school scenarios to Gen X this Sunday (22nd). He will bring the maps and mechs.

What: BattleTech TCG Team Draft
When: Sunday June 5th @ 1PM
Where: Gen X in Bedford

Will explain the rules from 12 to 1 and we'll do a team vs team game to start.  As that won't take all that long we can do a free for all afterward.

Everything will be provided.  If you'd like to bring dice or counters, feel free.

HUZZAH!!

While dropping off some comics at my storage unit, I found my Battletech card game collection. I will bring them to the June 5th game (after cleaning off all the dust)

Yes, this Sunday.

My mother died a week ago, and the rest of the week hasn't offered any respite. My mind is completely frazzled and I don't even know what I'm doing tomorrow, much less this Sunday.

Ahh shit, man. Sorry to hear that. Well, we got the AS game this week, so if you wanna just game and not worry about having to come up with something, that’s an option. Otherwise I don’t blame you for sitting out. If there are things you need to do, or you need to go be with your people I get it.

Sorry to hear about your mother.

I plan on being there this Sunday for the AS event.  Question: will we be running our own "team" or is it a shared units type of thing?

Sides, so we will distribute lances/level II’s based on number of players. Wobies have three level II’s and the Steiners have six lances/two companies to distribute.

1pm start, but you know how we would like to try to get started earlier, even if it never works out that way…

Alright, so we where thinking gaslands on the 12th. Anybody have objections or any ideas? I'm gonna try to sit down and read all the stuff for it again.

And in Star Wars CCG chat: I now remember who talon karrde was...it was the other big star wars writer at the time, Timothy Zahn :o

"Corran Horn (portrayed by Stackpole,) with Mara Jade (portrayed by Shannon McRandle) and Talon Karrde (portrayed by Timothy Zahn)"
