Is There...........

Post by slim chaney » Tue Dec 29, 2015 9:54 am

.........a system that a lot of people have thought about but not yet tried?

Is there a system that a few people are playing that people have thought "I wouldn't mind trying that"?

I'm wondering if a lesser system could be given a kickstarter if a few people jumped on board.

I'm talking low buy-in, preferably with a self contained starter set.

I've been wanting to try guild ball for a while. I've also been eyeing up the Team Yankee stuff but that's in its infancy and a bit more than the usual buy in. What about Malifaux? Anyone willing to commit to Batman, up its penetration? Anyone tempted by x-wing and wouldn't mind a go?

What else is out there? I'm gonna say sub £30 starter, preferably with quickstart rules.

I may be flogging a dead horse, as there's soooooo many systems around at the moment, I'd just like to see something gain momentum at the club.

Just thinking aloud :D

I was always curious about Malifaux, even bought into the Ten Thunders clan, but never grasped the gameplay.

With new miniature game systems, a good variety of factions is essential to avoid repetitive gameplay, as well as a sizeable following from club members.

There are many, many game systems on the market, choosing one which will be supported is not so easy.

From my early days at CVC where 40k and WHF were the only games played and very well supported; to our current situation where we have many game systems which dilute supporting players and their continued attention.

Too many games, too little time...the gamer's lament! :P
