Re: Maryland Multiplayer Madness! NHSD 11/4 in Baltimore, MD

Thanks, everyone, for a fun time yesterday. It was nice to meet so many 'scapers in one place, and great to be playing again for the first time since we moved to PA.

Thanks again, Dad_Scaper, for...

Re: Heroscape Family Reunion

How can I look so fat in the reunion photo and so slim in the Restoration Games photo? They were taken, like, a day apart at most!

Re: Heroscape Family Reunion

Here's a hint on #27: He was a codesigner on another game with Craig and Rob based on a TV show.

Re: MechaScape

That is cool stuff, JairEmia. I just found out that there's a maker space here in Columbia, MO, so I might see if I can get some training on their 3D printer (a Solidoodle with a 6" x 6" x 6"...

Re: MechaScape

Those tree frames are cool. How did you make them? 3D printer?

Thanks for the link. It looks like I've already got those figures (at least the ones from the factions I'm targeting).

Re: MechaScape

Me too. CBT has a lot of avid fans, and I don't want this to turn into a pros-and-cons of Battletech thread, so I'll just say that I consider Battletech to be the Car Wars of mech games and let other...

Re: MechaScape

I hear ya'. I think it depends what scale of combat you're aiming for. If you want to run a lance-on-lance, mech-only game, then hit locations and location-specific crits can really add to the...

Re: MechaScape

That's where I'm at too. Right now I'm basically using HeroScape for movement, attack, and defense, while borrowing activation, terrain, and formation rules from MW. I tossed out a lot of the bs that...

Re: MechaScape

I most definitely remember Ogre. The little black box version was one of the first war games I ever purchased. I think Malachi recreated the classic map using lava tiles.

You're right that I'm a...

MechaScape

I thought I'd post a few images of something I've been working on. For a long time now I've really want to play a shooty mech game with large numbers of mixed units, but with rules as quick and easy...

Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

Why does every new movie have to be a Batman or Star Trek reboot? A Bladerunner sequel? An Aliens prequel? A new Mad Max?

Because brands sell. I too would like to see fantastic new, original...

Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

Just to clarify, Craig Van Ness was not a designer on Risk Legacy. That was Rob Daviau, who also worked on HeroScape, but has had no role in this new game. I don't know why the Hasbro press release...

Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

I'd invert that analogy: A new show set in the same 'verse but with none of the original cast.

Actually, I'd be pretty stoked about that.

Edit: After further reflection, you're original analogy...

Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

Here's my contribution to the wild speculation:



Reading between the lines, this only refers to the five Planeswalker figures in the base game. What about the squad figures? I feel like they're...

Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

I'm glad to see a new version of HeroScape for a new generation, but I'm not sure this is for me. I never got into MTG so the theme doesn't really engage me. I've got plenty of terrain already, and...

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Be warned: Most of the love for Car Wars is childhood nostalgia. Most of the fun was designing your vehicle. The game itself was tedious. It holds a special place in my memory but game design has...

Re: Books: What are you currently reading?

Stick with it. Children of Dune and Dune Messiah are the weakest of the series. The last three are great.

And that's a pretty crappy way to show gratitude to someone who has been a strong supporter of this site and this community over the years.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Claustrophobia is one of the best dungeon crawls I own. As others have said, it has a surprising amount of depth for such simple rules. Getting rid of grid-based movement and instead going with...

Re: Are you on BoardGameGeek?

Holy crap! Between Bunjee and I, we could have bought a decent used car for what we've spent on boardgames.

Which might explain why we only have one car. ;)

Re: VirtualScape 1.070 available

This is a common problem. Usually the cause is that you don't have the hardware to support the full rendering. Are you using a machine with a dedicated graphics card that supports Open GL? (Note that...
