Post Apocalyptic Skirmish
Andy, Adam, Jason and I decided to make up our own wargame. Andy and Jason also decided to go nuts and make an awesome Fallout themed post-apocalyptic board.
Then there was a post-game phase where we gathered resources and bought more stuff. We also have rules for addiction too. Adam's medic must have tried to revive one of his elites heaps of times, as he is now addicted to stims! You get the chance to go looking for specific Rare kit. Not that I found the missile-launcher I desperately wanted, after having Andy MISS one of my guys but take out two others with the area-of-effect. One day my scavengers will find one in some junk-pile weapon vendor's inventory.
Playing the game was great fun, especially the new version on day 2. We now have a great core to write into a beta version of our own skirmish rules. One area that still needs work is stealth, but there will be a way. When I get my hand-written notes back, I will get started. I think the weekend was more profitably spent doing that than trying to be wargame king of the world.
