Test Play Continues

So Steve and were able to continue our play test of the starship version of Song of Blades and Heroes.  We doubled the number of ships on the table and found some balance issues which I think were resolved.  We also spent some time brain storming some new concepts to add to the mix.  The biggest issue is the 'shooty' nature of the game vs. hand to hand.  It is a 'starship' game after all. :)

I think we are on the right track, and the 'double the size' seemed about right.  Steve and I broke out a list of other options we wanted to try, away from the 'preformated' ships that we hope to include.  These include a escort Swarm vs. Max Cruisers and Carrier centric vs. Gun boats among others.

I 'could' have posted this with Steve's re-post of the campaign, but man I've been to lazy and I needed to the count up!

Travel is my middle name in July!

Damn John, your traveling like paul used to years ago. When did you get back this week?

Glad to hear you're still kicking! Ran a Mangled Metal on Saturday. I managed to mangle it up too! So that was thematically appropriate...

Eric - Back Friday. Maybe we can game on Saturday night. I could use the fix.

Adam - I feel crappy for leaving you hanging all month. Thanks for picking up the WM/H slack for me.

No worries. I'll see you when I see you. We should get a firm date on the fall Recruits event to see if we can roadtrip down there again.
