    I would like to thank everyone who joined us last night to play a quick game. Peters cuttlefish got tripped up which lead to his downfall. Overall we had a great time with lots of laughing. I have some sound tuning to do to be ready for Saturday November 14th. I hope to see everyone there!

    It was a sad day for the Martian invasion force to lose one of it's prized Cuttlefish. The cards in front of me portrayed a different turn's movement plot than those actually played on the table. The damn atmosphere of Earth didn't let me see the correct numbers on the cards. Looks like I'll be on Martian latrine duty for a while.

    A fun time for sure. (the game played, not the latrine duty)

    You missed out on a great moment in our games. I played an illegal move and fell to the ground, to be immediately rocketed and BOOMed!

    Great fun flying (or should I say walking) my first game with you guys - also my first go at playing a Martian.
    Looking forward to Saturday.

    Had a good time last night eventhough I took a beating. Those planes pounded my Locust but I did a little damage before blowing up. Good to see the guys again and meet another new person.

    I have to say, I like using the cannons more than the rockets. The rockets do more damage, but are hard to hit with.

    We played out CYBERWARS game this morning and it was fun. Had a number of new people join. Looks like we might some new people to our group. The Martian's had a good day taking out 2 planes and 3 objectives (and I didn't lose my Locust like I did the other night). A huge thanks to Mike for running the game on no rest, just getting home from a midnight shift. As always good to see all the other guys.

    This is incorrect, a tripod only loses energy if you hit it's shield, if you don't hit the shield it only counts the numbers and special damage. (3 + wounded pilot in this case)
    I haven't watched it all so I don't know if that's how you play it generally, or, whether it was a one off error but thought I should point that out as losing energy makes life harder on the tripod.

    No worries, watched a bit more this morning; you do a great job and the banter between the guys is hilarious, a great morale boost I'm sure. keep up the good work.

    My bad on that. When the game progressed after that firing phase I felt somethjing amiss. I looked back at the rules and saw my mistake but let it go as we had moved on.

    Well, it happens. We had a lot going on and Peter and Mike were taking care of it all. I think they both did an excellent job!

    It was a fun game Saturday, thanks to Mike and Peter for running a great show. Good to see the guys again.

    As a word of encouragement to anyone on the fence about joining: I was inexperienced and a bit apprehensive at first (didn't wanna mess up and squash the fun of the game for others). Those fears were completely unfounded... great group and a fun time is the goal. Now I look forward to the banter and always learn something each session not only about the game(s) but also the historical aspects. If you'd rather not commit to the regular sessions, there are plenty of one-off scenarios where additional pilots are welcome so jump in.

    Seeing how this was only the 2nd time we played like this we are still learning. Now we know. Having fun was the important thing. I did learn not to show my front, as a Locust with no shields there, to the earthlings. Always good to hear the thoughts of others and clear up things we might get wrong. Good thing to have observers and know we have a following for the on line games.

    Thanks Dave and Mike.

    Hello Everyone

    It has been pointed out that we played a rule...(or two) wrong. It happens from time to time. But what we learned early on in playing games via this platform was that the game must move forward. We have had discussions in game before and it will quickly kill a games momentum, and it does not look or sound good for anyone who is just watching. If an issue arises an email of chat will be sent and after the game and when the cameras are off we will cover the issue in question. Then moving forward the correction is applied. In this case it really did not affect the outcome of the game, even the hand of god could not help the humans, and in others it might. At that point we have to just chalk it up to really bad luck and move on. But we take it case by case.

    Again Thanks for the point out

    Mike

    Mars Attacks!!
    Mission 1: The Beachhead



    March 1919
    Somewhere in France

    The Great War has just ended and the world is trying to pick up the pieces. While the Great European powers deal with the post war
    cleanup, an illness is ripping through its population. Now, as if things need to get worse, the Earth just had the weirdest meteor storm
    of all time. Instead of the normal rocks falling from the heavens, they were metal cylinders. All of the cylinders seem to have landed
    near industrial centers. A large group of them landed not too far from here. We are going to send out a group of old Nieuport 17s to
    go check out these anomalies.

    Next up is On the Move - Mission 2 of the Mars Attacks Campaign

    The Mars Attacks Campaign is a 4 part campaign the will cover the Martian landing to the destruction of the nearby Industrial Complex.

    On the Move


    March 1919

    Near the French Border
    Well those anomalies turned out to be some kind of three legged creature, and they are very dangerous. The few
    people still in the area are reporting to us that these creatures are on the move. We are being told that they are
    heading towards the main industrial complex to the west of our position. With this intel we are going to sortie a
    flight of SPAD VIIs to slow them down so that we can organize a defense of the Industrial complex.

    Mars Attacks!!
    Mission 3: Crush the Complex


    March 1919

    Near Metz, Germany

    The Creatures are at the edge of the industrial complex on the outskirts of Metz, Germany. The Humans are
    better prepared for the Martian Invaders! The Humans have a flight of Fokker D VIIs heading in to rip the Martians apart.

    Good Morning pilots

    Today’s mission:

    Team Human
    Your mission is to Destroy the Martians and Save the Industrial Complex at Metz. Some infantry has been called up
    to protect the complex but they are not enough, and we need you in there to help the PBI!

    Team Martian
    You have to destroy as much of the complex as possible. If the puny little Earthlings get in the way....eliminate the vermin.

    Time to Go!


    March, 1919
    Metz, Germany

    The Situation is not good for Humanity. The Human infantry did their job to slow the Alien Creatures
    advanced. But it came at a cost of over 90% of their numbers. The Industrial Complex is still mostly intact,
    but I fear not for much longer!
    After slogging it to the industrial complex, the Martians are hungry for energy!
    Meanwhile
    The Human High Command has just fled their HQ in the Industrial complex by truck. They are heading to the
    airfield to board their transport and escape to safety.

    Good Morning pilots
    Today’s mission:
    Team Human
    You have a busy mission! You need to protect the Handley Page as it tries to escape. Protect as much of the
    complex as possible. And destroy the Alien Creatures.
    Team Martian
    Destroy! Destroy! Destroy!
    If its human or human made Destroy it!
