"So this is it. It's all over. Years of elite training and it comes to this; burying my comrades on some Outer Rim backwater. Perhaps, while their guard's down, I can make a break for it..." - PL-21226, Yavin 4 Imperial Assault Campaign Report : Mission One - Aftermath I finally had the chance to start a Star Wars: Imperial Assault campaign at the Manchester Tabletop meet-up on Monday. Five us played through the tutorial again as an introduction and straight away everybody was eager to try out the first campaign mission - so the tutorial did it's job of selling the game! Spoiler alert: If you've not played the campaign, but plan to, don't read any further. I've aimed to minimise the information given away but inevitably some details will be revealed. (more…)
The XCOM boardgame is rumoured by game stockists to be landing at the end of January. It's available for pre-order - with the best deal being £43.99 from 365games.co.uk, while Amazon.co.uk has it for £49.95. My pre-order is in! Update - 16/01/2015 C-MAX on Amazon.co.uk have reported availability from February 2: "The supplier is shipping stock to us the last week of January and should be with us by the 2nd of February and ready to ship out that week." Update - 15/01/2015 C-MAX on Amazon.co.uk have the release date now as February 28. But state the following when you dig deeper: "This is a PRE-order and will be shipped as soon as stock is available. Estimated release date is Q1 2015 but rumours are that it will land in January!" Fingers-crossed the rumours are right!
I've just finished adding a directory to the site, so far just populated by a couple of sample entries for gaming groups I know of in Manchester (the Tabletop Manchester group being the one I attend most weeks). If you run a gaming group in the UK, or operate a UK games store you can now submit an entry. I'll review entries asap and get them added. If you're a group with a regular meeting place then be sure to include the address and details of when you meet and how meets are arranged in the biography section. Thanks!
It looks like there's been a reprint recently of Betrayal on House on the Hill as it's available on Amazon and in Manchester's game stores for around £36. It's been on my "should take a look at" list since I saw it on Wil Wheaton's Table Top, so I expect it'll be reaching my tabletop in the not-too-distant future!
