I ran into Sammy at AnimeFest set-up Thursday. He has been without a car this past year which is why he has been a no-show.

That sucks. I'll bring a 6,000bv and 400pv group then, and we'll see what all we can do.

Well, unless somebody had something in mind…go with our usual 6K BV / 400PV pickup game?

I was thinking Gaslands for a change of pace.

(but I'll also have my usual stuff)

Honestly, I think I'd prefer some Battletech. Gaslands is fun, but I've had to miss so many games this summer and now that we've finally got my dad moved in I'm really looking forward to getting back into some regular giant robot smashes.

Was gonna ask if we had anything we wanted to do this Sunday(20th). We will be down a person or two, so I figured another pickup game till we have a better idea of how many people we will have, then we could plan for something else perhaps.

Ok, we’ve been workshopping this since Gencon, so unless there are any objections…

You heard of a Battletech grinder...but a Alpha strike grinder?!?!?! Join us for a Alpha strike grinder this Sunday at Generation X!

When: Sunday, August 20th.

Where: Generation X in Bedford, TX. 12pm doors open, 5-5:30close.

Rules: Four formations of units(Trey, lance, star or level II) each a different point size( 125, 150, 175 and 200) Any unit types and special abilities.
Skills maybe upgraded, but not downgraded. When a formation is reduced to 50% or less, the player may withdraw the remenant of that formation, and come on to the board with the next highest PV formation on the following turn. Scoring is: one point per Size of the eliminated unit. Multiple dice rolls and Hexed play rules.

We recommend bringing more then one set of formations incase all four are destroyed. Either way, extra formations will be provided for people who need them or who want to join in.

Alright, so anybody have an idea for this week? We talked about doing a casual game day, but nothing set in stone.

Alright, so do we just shoot for a general game day? Everybody bring board games/card games/etc of interest and we go from there?

What was that board game that was a mix of wild west and supernatural happenings? It was lots of fun (and not just because it had dynamite)

Shadows of Brimstone. I’ve been actually sorting stuff and making more curated sets of cards so it’s easier to transport and have organized, but I’m still not done with it. I’m also working on the new Kickstarter stuff as well, but I’ve gotten about ten out of a thousand models for that done so far :shocked:

I was gonna bring: The Thing board game, Shadowverse decks, Magic Commander decks, and a few other random board games I’ve got.

I’ve gone ahead and posted our usual casual game day post on the discords. I may not show up depending, I’ve been fighting a really bad sinus headache all week and I’m ready to lie down and hide under some covers all of Sunday.

Feeling a bit better finally. I’ve got a double tournament weekend for Shadowverse this weekend(9th-10th) so I won’t be up at the shop. If y’all want me to post the usual boiler plate on the Discords, let me know. Same if you want to do anything different.

I’d be somewhat interested, but there is a good chance I won’t be able to make it.

Speaking of games…anything planned for this Sunday? (1st) might be the only weekend I’m free for October, I’ve had a bunch of stuff I need to take care of come up.
