Ah Mercs week ...

Mercs Week on Beasts of War

MERCS week is over ... boo ... but if you haven't check out the sight and the past coverage they did on my newest obsession.   This week had its casualties, most notibly my pocketbook, because seriously, those Sedafu's look great.    Don't know what I'm talking about?  Check out the MERC's week video's.   

Played my first MERC's games yesterday .. fun stuff.   The very first game was cool as we were figuring things out, got pawned, but it was a good type of pawned.   Second game I fared better.   One of the best features of the game is how each figure gets initiative to do an action at the begining of their turn based on how high the die roll is.    This is probably the greatest thing in a mini game.     This causes you to re-think strategies, and keeps you on your toes.   The best thing is that there really is no 'down -time' .. you feel the quickness of the action.    Both games lasted two hours each using just a 2D playmat printed on a black-and-white sheet of paper.   Those hours went quick... real quick.   This is a good sign.   Looking forward to playing more at TABScon on Saturday.
