Starship Troopers Event

Posted: January 23, 2009 in Uncategorized

Thought I’d promote the upcoming Starship Troopers game I’m running with Jeff Hammerlund at Unique Gifts and Games in Grayslake, IL. It’s schedule for Saturday, January 31. We’ll start around 12:30 PM. We’ll be using the standard Starship Troopers rules from Mongoose Publishing, with a few house rules. If you haven’t played it before, we run a moderated game with all the players commanding Mobile Infantry forces and referrees controlling the Arachnids. We do this to make the Bugs behave more like they did in the movies. In other words, they charge Zulu-like and try to overwhelm the poor troopers. Jeff and I have nearly a thousand figures between the two of us and some really nice terrain. We’ve been running the game for four years now, so it goes very smoothly. If you can make it, we’d love to have you.

As for the scenario, it will be a classic extraction. Trapped, cut-off troopers will be holding off the Bugs until a dropship with reinforcements arrives to evacuate everyone. It should be tense. It will be the second time I get to use my Mechwarrior modified Aurora-class dropship, which now serves as a Federal Fleet troopship.
