We sauntered over to the Catalyst Game Labs booth to see what all the hype is about for the new Alpha Strike rule for Battletech. Very cool stuff! Check it!

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    You know..that is funny, Ray: a lance on lance game over in an hour! Depends very much on the players involved. I remember a 5 on 6(star on Level II) fight that ran 12 hours…but that was no-holds barred, TacOps available, advanced tech in use, fight to the bitter end.

    However, I am so looking forward to getting my hands on Alpha Strike, just to be able to do FAST play games….I wonder how it holds up at the regimental level of play, or if one still has to go all the way to BattleForce for that to be done in a timely manner?

    A very “meh” interview on both sides. I was afraid he was about to ask what those little numbered cubes on the table were.

    I had a bit of a chuckle over the “one-hour lance-on-lance game”, too.

    I have the PDF, and would like some of the con-swag unit cards. I won’t be holding my breath for them to print more to sell to us lowly worms who had to stay home.
