4th may be iffy. I won’t  know till the last minute, and I’ve already filled in twice for people before we hit December. xp

In good news: I’ve got a new fdm printer on the way, and I’ve got some city layouts ready to be printed. Alongside a map I'm sure Zug will Love  >:D

For the 11th, how would folks feel about a Solaris Grinder?

My thinking is that it would be intro tech, and instead of people choosing their mechs, all the record sheets would be placed into a single stack and folks would draw their mech randomly.

HUZZAH!!

I picked up two new X-wing packs today: Hotshots and Aces II, and Siege of Coruscant scenario pack (Republic vs. Separatist)

Like the Trench Run scenario, the ships have standard loadout cards and each side has tweaks.

I had to purchase a third Eta-2 for the Republic, but otherwise I have all the ships for squad building.

Was anyone planning on sleeping up to this?

Still in the air here, and they are messing with schedule stuff again. I’ll try to make it if I’m off, but even if I am, I’m not sure I’ll make it.

I can be at the shop this Sunday. I'll bring Alpha Strike in case it's just the two of us. A grinder works better with more people.

I'll also bring the new X-wing packs to look at.

I’m still not sure about this Sunday(18th) how would people feel about having an alpha strike game to celebrate the release of the new box set, or how about a Mechwarrior Dark age booster draft if I know I can make it?

I probably can't make it to GenX until after the new year, but if anyone's free, I'm gonna try to set something up for the 28th at Madness.

I can be at Gen-X on Sunday; I believe the two guys who bought the new begineer's box are going to be there as well.

Alright, I got the weekend off. I’ll be up at the store. 250 Alpha strike, or whatever the newer players can manage?

250 Alpha Strike sounds good to me.  I'll bring a few forces and may have 1 or 2 other players joining.

Is that 250 tons or PV for AS?

Edit: NVM, I saw the Facebook post.  How about SPA's, allowed to purchase?

Yeah, 250PV. Any SPAs you can get are from formations.

I don't know when I'll be able to show up again but Happy Holidays.
The Patton of wargame design, the Berg himself, is being immortally quoted elsewhere.
"Rich Berg once responded to gamers comments about one of his games, "I make this ****** up, so can you.""

"Back in MY day we played Battletech with figures made of LEAD! POISONED LEAD! And the only PAINT we had was RADIOACTIVE! Why, we lost at least THREE or FOUR dear friends every YEAR to BATTLETECH POISONING! But we didn't know any better, and we LIKED IT!
And we rolled DICE for HOURS to play our games! There was none of this plastic clicky nonsense! Our DICE were radioactive TOO! And we had to roll them for hours and hours and hours to track EVERY SINGLE MISSILE! Why, my some of my friends are STILL rolling dice for their last turn when I left Norman THREE YEARS ago! And I don't plan to move back for at least five years and it STILL won't be my turn! But we didn't know any better, and we LIKED IT.
These kids today."  --Jim Butcher, Dresden Chronicles Author

Since UrbanBall didn't happen on the 28th, who's up for trying it again at GenX on the 8th?

Well, the wife wants to push our anniversary plans to Sunday. I like my “Urbies” right where they are, so I’m not gonna argue with her.

Y’all have a good time, if something changes, I’ll try to show up.
