A chance conversation last week resulted in us breaking out Battletech this week for a quick game (well, quick for Battletech!) One lance of four Mechs per side and, although no Mechs were destroyed, my lance certainly had the upper hand in dishing out the damage.
Got to say that I had an absolute blast playing this. It reminds me that I enjoy complex games and I was surprised how quickly the "to hit" modifiers came to mind without endlessly checking the rulebook. Never destined to return to the regular game rotation, I'm sure we'll get this to the table again soon.
Oh, and a quick word about gaming etiquette. If you're not playing in a game, either keep relatively quiet or bugger off and stand somewhere else. You know who you are!
