Hi All,

Angryman here.  Last night I played X-Wing for the first time. 

For those of you who know nothing about the game (or have never heard of Star Wars................) its a space combat game between 2 factions, the rebels and the imperials.  you have a certain amount of points to spend on ships and upgrades, you can pick 'named' pilots or standard fighters etc.  You set the board up, you move, shoot and hopefully blast your enemy into space dust.  The game flows very well, its easy to pick up (I think the basics took me 30 mins) and you can usually get a game done in an hour or so.  Larger point games mean more 'named' pilots and upgrades etc so it can get a little bit more involved but its a lot of fun.
The best part is all the star wars quotes that you hear people saying, then you find yourself doing it.  The game is worth it just for that!!!

I'm looking to see what others think of the game, all comments welcome

MAWSCON and updates

Hi All,

Angryman here - 2 posts in 2 months, this almost a roll for me posting!!!

MAWSCON has moved to August 11th.  The medals have been ordered and will be ready for collection tomorrow.  The rules pack has been play tested and I've had some good feedback for the rules, all that's left to do is have the tournament!!

The club has received a free starter set for Empire Of The Dead, we'll hopefully start to play a few games once the rules have been digested.

The Blood Bowl league should be kicking off soon, people have been playing games in preparation, more news to follow once the league kicks off.

X-Wing will be getting its first run out at MAWS on Monday, I'm looking forward to this, I've heard nothing but good things about this game.

I don't think anything has been missed out but as usual, all comments welcome
