Well that was Fun Yesterday

Yesterday I ended up writing up a quick and dirty after action report of puerto rico.  That was FUN!  So much fun that I think I wanna make a thing of it.  I can do more than just track what games I play I can also track how I play and what we do.  I think it will be neat.  To bad my phone's camera is sub par otherwise I could augment it with pictures.  Oh well maybe someday you know?  At any rate it is neat though certain games don't lend themselves well to this sort of thing paticularly Wiz-War and Dominion but I'll figure something out and between the two gaming nights I have we can manage something.  Also it will just be a thing that I will prolly get tired of in a couple of weeks then never do again.  Still it will be fun while it lasts.  I mean I also want to do board game reviews but I don't buy enough to really justify making a thing out of it so that's the end of that then. 

So I have some manditory time off coming up which is pretty exciting.  I plan on making some serious progress on my game which has addmittedly stalled a little bit.  This is partially to do with the fact I am tired.  It also has to do with the fact that I am in sort of a boring chore portion.  I need to make more counters I need to label the counters, and then I need to push them around a bit to see how I want things to work.  As it stands tanks aren't scary enough.  THAT needs to change.  I mean they do good on their own but defense bounuses are pretty easy to come by.  I am going to change that by doing a combination of increased attack power and a special order called marking shot or perhaps bore sighting I can't decide.  I might make the marking shot something engineers can do.  I want Engineers to be awesome and a target worth killing.  They pretty much are already but making tanks super awesome is something really cool.  They need some sort of defensive option if I am going to do that though cause otherwise people will be slaughtering them left and right.  With just troops this is okay when heroes get involved though it might be a little bit more tricky. 

I was planning on going to Pelicon but I just looked at the list of events and I just don't know.  I want to get more into wargaming but around here that means "Flames of War" and that's just a no go for me.  I've fallen in love with hex and chit gaming and that's that pretty much.  Also no more miniature games.  Ugh, they take up space, they need tons of care and feeding, and I just don't want to bother.  Also there is a lot to be said for the level of detail found in hex and chit over a miniature game.  You can do more and I think as a genra it has been largely unexplored due to the ammount of historical gaming, however I've already written extensivly on that subject.

Backtracking a bit I am super excited for the new Super Dungeon Explore stuff and I am even more excited for Leviathans.  Those are going to be some good times.  I am a little worried that I won't get to play Leviathans as much as I like and that it will suffer a similar fate to battletech but I also don't care.  I just had a battletech though actually.  I know that the minatures come it two scales there is main and battleforce.  I also know that the mechs in the 25th annaversary boxed set aren't to the main scale.  I wonder how close they are in size to the battle force minis?  I should look into that because while I just said I wasn't going to get into another miniature game totally want more mechs.  I'll look into that in a minute.  It is sad because I really love battletech and I have the dice for it, we should play it more.  I kinda need to review the rules a bit though.  I'll do that tomorrow night maybe. I'll have to do the battleforce thing when I get home though, I can look at porn all day while I am at work but heaven forbid I try to access  Fuckers. 

Next week is going to be a quiet one as I get productive again.  I need to get back into the swing of working on my game and I need to get a shadowrun game session up and running.  Both are time consuming but a lot of fun.  TA!
