Imperial Assault: Plans and last stands…

Imperial Assault: Plans and last stands…

FFG, Imperial Assault
"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…)

XCOM – coming soon?

FFG, X-Com
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!

UK Tabletop Gaming Directory added

Site News
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!
