Battletech anyone?
« on: February 17, 2003, 02:36:13 PM »
Just out of curiosity, are they any fan of Classic Battletech here?  I love the game myself and am surprised it hasn't come up before.  What do you guys think of the new product line?

Wow, I never even SAW this posting before.  I loved Battletech.  It was my first non-rpg gaming experience way back when we actually had to build our own damn terrain sets.  I am enjoying the clix version, and let me tell you something: Don't be surprised if Clix Mechwarrior wins Game of the Year this year.

Double posting to make up for you deleted profile, Slant? :)

I played MW Clix for a while, but I don't think it works as well as a collectible game as the other clix games.  It just didn't feel right. Rules were nice though, I must admit.  I sold all my stuff a while back.  It was hard letting go of that Atlas...

But now I have a real Atlas, white metal and waiting for paint.  Over the last few months I've collected most of the useful 3025 mechs and a few 3067.  And yet I still haven't played in a goodly long time.  

Take a trip to St. Louis, Slant.  I'll run Savage Worlds, you could run LOTR, and then we could play Battletech.  Man, how come nobody here plays Btech?

I'm kind of with Pleasington on this: MW clix is a great game with some amazing rules, but it's not as collectible--probably because it's so much more expensive. I haven't sold mine off, but I'm tempted to (mainly so I can buy more Heroclix, which pushes all the right buttons for me).
