Having Gone Cold Turkey

So, four months ago, I effectively dropped out of playing tabletop role-playing games. The first thing to say is it doesn’t feel like four months, which probably says something in and off itself. The second thing to say is it was a bit strange, but only at first. The usual …

Impounded: Rebel…Victory!

So, I drew my agenda cards as I’d not done at the end of the last session. I had 5 agenda points and two forced missions came out of the deck. Different. I was in two minds whether to give them a go, as the one I was interested in …

It Bloats My Mind

So I finally got my copy of the very dubious D6 Star Wars revised, expanded and updated edition, essentially a third edition fan endeavour. It’s a beast of a book and says a lot about my gaming journey. This was one of my favourite games, easily one of the most …

Fly Solo: Rebel…Victory!

The fifth mission in the Imperial Assault campaign was another great experience, albeit it came after our first game of Star Trek Catan and it’s epic dilithium shortage (all three dilithium planets were set at 2,3 and 4 stalling the whole game). I have to admit, I thought I had …

Aftermath: Rebel…Victory!

We started our Imperial Assault campaign proper today and it was very exciting. We played Aftermath, the first mission, and then Homecoming was drawn as the first side mission. Aftermath is strange in that we’d played it twice already in our initial play test, albeit we weren’t playing it with …

The Imperial Assault Play Test

We played a test play of Imperial Assault today, and it was great fun. It was very much a test play, I’d read the ‘read this first’ book and we planned to play the tutorial. We ended up playing the tutorial twice and then the first mission in the campaign …

The First in…22+ Years?

There was a time when I played quite a lot of board games. In fact, as I consider this there might have been two phases of great board game buying, but I’m having trouble pinning down exactly when one of them was. The first one, well, I think it was …
