Is There A New Game For Club?

Post by slim chaney » Fri Mar 17, 2017 6:20 pm

Can anyone think of a new, or not yet established game we could try and encourage at club?

I really miss the days of Warmachine starter boxes, low model count, low buy in, nice selection of players.

We have a core of (semi) established games which are played in smallish groups.

There's a lot out there at the moment, surely something to scratch an itch?

I've knocked on the door of Batman but walked away without playing a game.

Malifaux came and went for me, shame, it was becoming a favourite.

Infinity? Next.

Deadzone has also fallen by the wayside, not really taking hold

I'm wondering if anyone has considered a jump into something else at club but is worried they'd be starting later than others, playing at a disadvantage.

TLDR :o

Nutshell, game, low buy-in, interest, group?

##Edit## Not expecting too many replies due to quiet board. Just spitballing.

To reply to myself.......

Batman is a possible, just a one box starter, no extras.

Anyone considered coming over to x-wing?

Been looking for something new myself, and I'm sure I'll be back from salute with something not sure what though.

Not really any starter boxes for batman but most games are relatively low model count. It's certainly a if you play it we will join in game. It just never seems to hang around long. It really needs a 2nd edition Imo. Lots of things need clearing up rules wise.

x-wing just doesn't appeal to me at all, too many shenanigans and too much power creep.

We're just looking at starting dropfleet commander (well me and Chris are and a few others). Hopefully give a starter box game a go on Sunday.
Mike and Kieron have just started frostgrave, that's a possibility. It looked a bit complicated, they were writing lots of stuff down.

Other than that there's not a lot about we haven't tried.

Dropfleet Commander? I'll have a nose :D

I first read it as Dropzone Commander and thought mmmmmmmmm, that's a possibility :roll: Never really gave that one a chance either. How many people could play/may play that one?

They go hand in hand with each other. There's even rules for a linked campaign.

Just need to get people playing.

There's a few of us with dropzone stuff.
Me, Chris, Shaun, Gareth, Paul, Mike


Just me and Chris with dropfleet at the moment but that'll change.

I'm sat here painting my PHR starter :)
