Apparently I'm still stuck in the past as I've decided to start collecting another Kickstarter game that I missed out on. Let the invasion begin!!!
I'd seen the Mars Attacks KS by Mantic Games and was really tempted. It looked like it would be a lot of fun but I didn't know who I could possibly play against so I passed on it... until now. I recently picked up the basic game and I've been started growing my armies slightly faster than I'd intended as the rules just look like they will be fun to play. It is definitely a light miniatures game and that works for me.
When I bought the game, I had planned concentrating on the Martians and then expanding into the Earth forces but after looking at my mini collection I've changed my mind. I have the heroes from the basic game plus I can field a ton of troops from my US K47 army so I don't really see the point in shelling out more cash for troops I already have.
Hopefully I can get this one to the table soon to push it around. The mechanics are very simple but it does seem like there is enough there to make it interesting. It might even be one of the first games played in our new house as we are finally moving!!! Huzzah!!! This is something that has been in the works for years but finally things have fallen into place. On top of that we have a very large room that will serve as our game room/dojo so we are all really excited at what the future holds for us. Heck, I might even start blogging more than once a month! Crazy, right?
