Scratch that. I can't play this weekend, and I think I'm the only one with the rules.

Due to Sunday's lack of gaming, I made a run up to the Reaper game store in Denton; picked up a copy of Strike Operations and a couple of Dragonflys. :thumbsup:

Sweet. Lemme know when you wanna play next. (I won't be there this Sunday, though. Family outing.)

Similarly, I've been having a serious hankering to drive a D7 around a table. Anyone up for that? If so, we've got multiple game systems to choose from...

Sorry, mine's a keeper. The box is back in stock at the CGL store, though.

Also, trading and selling is explicitly forbidden on these forums. To do that, you'll need to either use private messages, any other website on the entire internet that is not this one, or asking in person. Smoke signals might work too, but last time I tried, the shipping sucked.

Sorry I didn't get there until 2:00 pm.  I tried texting you before then.  Anyway, I should be back next week as I am in Boise this weekend.  And I ordered my copy of the new Alpha Strike (could not find my original for the life of me, the replacement I ordered was in German, and they've changed rules anyway).
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 s*** up, so can you.""

The greatest blame does not lie with the oppressors.  It belongs to the silent majority.

Stop, Breathe, and Go AFK for awhile, before you resort to flames (I have to remind myself of this all the time).

Happy Day.  My Commander's Edition came in today.  And I got a set of 3rd Edition Unseens from Charlie Tango.  Happy Dance!

That's awesome!

I will not be there this weekend. And will be out of town during the next two, due to Gencon. See you guys in a month!

I would really like to go tomorrow but don't know the plan. What're we going to be up to?

How about Alpha Strike.  I have the new full box set (plus the Beginners set) as well as the older stuff AND I just got my copy of the new Commander's Edition rules.

New player here,

Will be hosting some games at Madness on Saturday 8/3 @ 1 if anyone wants to drop in.  Introducing some friends and MWO buddies to Alpha Strike.

GenX is actually closer to me so I'll drop by next time there's a game going on there.
