Re: Possible idea for forum boardgame - SPACE CRUSADE

Great! With AnimalMother joining the collective that will make our 3 squads which will be cavorting around the Imperium. Plus a lurking Snowy.

Expect more details to come over the next couple of weeks.

Re: Possible idea for forum boardgame - SPACE CRUSADE

Yeah, I think we could do the 8-11pm routine again. Turns move very quickly, so we might even be able to complete 1 mission per evening session. (Perhaps over 2 sessions if there's 3 squads of you playing instead of 2). The game has a bunch of missions in a campaign, and each mission has an objectiv...

Re: Possible idea for forum boardgame - SPACE CRUSADE

Cool! I remember having great fun with it as a teenager, I think it would work pretty well as a forum game. It's more snappy and faster-moving than AHQ.

The only thing is the game uses its own combat dice, so we'll have to convert the D6 results. I'll find a solution to that pretty easily though.

Possible idea for forum boardgame - SPACE CRUSADE

Over the next few months, I reckon I'm going to have a little more spare time on my hands and I was wondering whether anyone would be interested in me running another forum RPG/boardgame? Akin to last year's Advanced Heroquest sessions. Only this time, I was thinking about... https://vignette.wikia....

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

Yeah, I read elsewhere that HBO offered D&D as many episodes as they wanted for the final season but they chose themselves to wrap it up in 6. A lot of stuff surrounding the show's last season has all been a bit strange really, especially when taking into account the Star Wars connection. Feels like...

Re: The F1 thread

Mercedes don't seem to have really done a great deal, as far as I can work out, apart from make some incremental improvements here & there this season. This was a massive opportunity for Ferrari, after how they were neck and neck for much of last season, but they seem to have shot themselves in the ...

I do worry about Lee's late night drinking habits. :lol:

Also, happy birthday!

Re: Football

So I guess you're feeling mildly content right now?


Gotta be favourites for the final, even against a decent Ajax side.

Re: Borderlands 3

Yeah, if it looks like security issues have been mostly improved by then I'd have no problem getting it on EGS. Unless I feel it's too pricey on release & I end up waiting for it to be a bit cheaper.

Re: Borderlands 3

I haven't played a game in well over a year now, but watching that video it's given me my first little pang of interest I've had in ages. I just loved BL/BL2 - plus I'm one of those 'weirdos' who adores them as single player games. I just might re-enter the hobby for a bit and get this when it comes...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

Although the series has a huge budget overall, I do wonder sometimes whether on a scene-by-scene basis they're too rushed to spend enough time lighting their night-time sets properly. At least I hope that was the case; if it was intentionally unwatchable for some 'artistic' reason or something that'...

Re: The F1 thread

:lol: The funny thing is though, Mercedes really shouldn't have got all these 1-2's so far this season. Leclerc was nailed on for a win previously before his engine played up - plus I reckon he may well have got pole here without that crash. Ferrari need to get it together basically. They absolutely...

Re: Moving Pictures

Usually SNL sketches are pretty basic fare, but they've actually put a lot of effort into this - getting those gaming tropes and NPC movements spot on.
