Thread: The real deal

  1. #1

    Default The real deal

    We had a chance this long weekend at Origins to run games using the real, genuine Tripods and Triplanes figures! Ares NA had arranged to have the Italian office express ship a couple of boxed sets of T&T, along with several individual tripods and extra counters sets and damage deck sets, to them at Origins so we could use them in our games. The result was exciting! All who played in the scheduled games had a great time, and they really enjoyed the new models and tweaks to the 'basic' game. The game components are gorgeous - the damage decks are splendid - all the appropriate counters are, too. The tripods are lovely and colorful and menacing. I am so excited to receive my Kickstarter materials in the next month While I am sad it has taken so long for the KS to be delivered, I think the wait has been worth it. Quality all around in this game

    All the best,
    Matt

    I fully agree. The new T&T components are beautiful. I look forward to getting my 2nd Invasion Kickstarter. Definitely worth the wait.

    I ran a T&T game a few hours after the game showed up in Columbus. I had previously downloaded the rules from the Ares site and gone through them. The game was easy and fun to run. I am more historian than Sci-Fi fan but I had a great time putting the Martians through their paces. I can't wait to get my game.


    Here's to them what are like us. Damn few and they're all dead.

    Thanks for the update chaps, I'm sure the troops who invested will take heart from this review.

    There was a set at the ukge and I can confirm the components look good and the models were excellent.
    I didnt manage to get a game in, too busy playing with boats, but the demo table was busy all weekend

    I got to play in one of the sessions at Origins and took some pictures. I was a tripod pilot and it was good fun! I have to wait for it to hit retail, but then it'll be joining my collection.

    The tripods look awesome! Cannot wait until my KS arrives. Jim and Matt, I hope we can fit some tripods into the regular scheduled games.

    This gives me a motivation burst.

    Hope the Martians will reach Germany, soon.
