We got together for a couple of quick games of FUBAR. We did some Stargate games and had fun with the rules.

Nice looking game! I have used Fubar for Stargate games too. I use 15mm figs though.

Thanks for sharing, I've been thinking about using FUBAR for SG too for a con game, but I wasn't sure how well it would work with such small units (4 man teams).

It will work very well. Elite teams take 4 suppressions before they take a casualty. The more suppressions the more likely they will not activate and be out of the game.

Love it !!! SG was one of my favorite shows ! Great scenarios, terrain and figures ! And I'm not a zombie fan … and it shows what a "well trained, experienced combat unit" can do against slow moving dead guys ! LOL !!! Take that Rick and his amateurs on The Walking Dead ! LOL !!! thumbs up

Something to keep in mind. Jaffa can use the 'rings' to appear as reinforcements. Makes for a very cool game. The Stargate yahoo group has a nice Stargate mini-campaign using rings. Very interesting.

John has a good suggestion. I use ring platforms to bring in more Jaffa. This helps keep the SG teams working on the clock, as a typical Goa'uld character could possibly throw hundreds of fighters into the mix, but limited to what fits on a platform. I use a randomized entry unless the ring-in is to a fixed platform. (basically up to a 6 inch drift on a compass template) There are several episode that show the fixed platforms in operation. The jaffa team leader would have a signal device to lock-on for ringing out, as well.

Good catch guys, I asked the GM about rings, he hasn't painted them up yet but they are on the way. We wanted to keep the game small since we never played the rules. The GM will be running a club game in the future and he has many more figures to get on the board.

Another detail I added was to make the ring-in cost an entire movement for a turn, so the group is exposed to counter fire. This keeps the Goa'uld player from ringing into the middle of a firefight, or using rings to just hop across the board. As the destination might scatter, there is risk of losing parts of a group or appearing in unexpected places.

Did you do anything special for 'characters'? Like SG-1?
