We missed a bit:

"Any command card can be used to issue a Basic Order which is one of the four actions Move, Attack, Reinforce and Harvest. Lay the card face down the special order effects are ignored."

Just normal battletech/alpha strike I imagine.

I’ve got cards games this week, but I may be free next Sunday.

FYI, the North Texas Battletech Discord server has set up dedicated channels for the various major gaming stores in the area, including GenX, for the purpose of coordinating games and whatnot. Any games that get announced here I'll post to the Discord, and vice versa.

https://discord.com/channels/679095346722373635/1202734517777858620
What's the invite link for that discord?
It's not about winning or losing, no it's all about how many chapters have you added to the rule books after your crazy antics.

Just dice, I’ll provide everything else. I’m trying to figure out my work schedule, but I should be good to go. I’ll write up a blurb here in a bit and get it posted.

We will be up at Gen-X this Sunday for some...BIG Strike!

"The battle for Hesperus II began on January 3rd 3145, when a joint Jade Falcon–Hell's Horses force led by Khan Malvina Hazen landed on the planet. Archon Trillian Steiner had received word of the impending attack from Loki agents but the weakened LCAF lacked the means to repulse the invasion themselves. Instead, Archon Steiner implemented a different stratagem: she ordered Loki to leak word of the invasion to Khan Alaric Ward, correctly guessing that he'd react by mounting a counter invasion of his own.

A day after Hazen's force landed, warriors from the Wolf Empire reached Hesperus. The LCAF had withdrawn most of its garrison by this point and the remaining Commonwealth troops evacuated after putting up minimal resistance.

The subsequent Wolf assault upon Hazen's forces resulted in nearly two months of stalemate. An impatient Malvina finally mounted a last-ditch attempt to seize the factory on 23 February, ordering that her nuclear weapons be ready for use in case of failure. Then Khan Beckett Malthus made an assassination attempt on Malvina, putting her into a coma and throwing the entire force into confusion as orders for retreat were broadcast. It was then that the LCAF's counterblow landed. While the Clans had been bogged down, Archon Steiner gathered a liberation force at nearby Canonbie. The fresh LCAF units dropped onto enemies already tired and demoralized, and within a week had routed both Clan forces."

Models and terrain provided, just bring dice and a good attitude.

When: Sunday, March 10th.

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

Rules: Alpha Strike. Multiple Damage rolls, Formation rules.

Usual free play, nothing fancy. I might have something planned for next month, but I’ll have to get back to working on it.

HUZZAH, HUZZAH!!!!

After waiting 'til 1pm for someone to show up at Gen-X, I headed out and about. At the Barnes & Noble in Addison, I found a copy of Encounters Battletech. Fortunately, I had enough Reward points to pick it up for FREE (along with a couple of cookies).
