Last night was HAWKs night. There were two simultaneous games. The first was Kurt Schlegel’s 1973 Arab-Israeli War game based on the battle of Quatre Bras. Since many of the HAWKs supported the 114th Signal Battalion’s SLPD (see http://bucksurdu.com/blog/?p=3350) the various game masters have taken turns running their version of the scenario at club nights. This week was Kurt’s turn.
The second game was a play test of Kevin Fischer’s game based on a Japanese anime series. It involved large stompy robots (actually these are more like battle mechs that have human (or human-like operators) battling each other. We also had tanks and infantry running around.
Apparently the Egyptians had a slight advantage over the Israelis when the game ended.
The robot game went pretty well for a first play test. I don’t know the genre, so I don’t know if the game reflects the cartoon well. It had a few rough edges and can use a little streamlining, but it was fun.
The game only took a couple of hours, so we had a little time for a game of Red Dragon Inn.
