Last night was HAWKs night.  There were two simultaneous games.  The first was Kurt Schlegel’s 1973 Arab-Israeli War game based on the battle of Quatre Bras.  Since many of the HAWKs supported the 114th Signal Battalion’s SLPD (see http://ift.tt/1xEo3of) the various game masters have taken turns running their version of the scenario at club nights.  This week was Kurt’s turn.

The second game was a play test of Kevin Fischer’s game based on a Japanese anime series.  It involved large stompy robots (actually these are more like battle mechs that have human (or human-like operators) battling each other.  We also had tanks and infantry running around.

Apparently the Egyptians had a slight advantage over the Israelis when the game ended.

The robot game went pretty well for a first play test.  I don’t know the genre, so I don’t know if the game reflects the cartoon well.  It had a few rough edges and can use a little streamlining, but it was fun.

I hit Mike Fischer's stompy robot in the cockpit in mid leap, and it crashed.

The game only took a couple of hours, so we had a little time for a game of Red Dragon Inn.
