With the previous day's game under my belt, I made two adjustments to the set up of my Quark's Rivet Game.

I brought the Krall on the British right flank in towards the building by one move distance, and added another Tesla gun to the battery, for a total of 3. These were done as the Krall was too easily overrun in the first game (it is still set up as a sacrifice) and, while it is active, should have the chance to really thin out the ranks of Bomburst's troops before they could hit the defenses.



This game had 12 players, with 23 signed up to play. Some kids tag teamed with units, which was a cool thing to behold.


If you are ever on the West Coast during Kublacon, I highly recommend it.

Simply wonderful and love the figures. What a great way to involve children in the hobby and teach them something as well.

Thanks Gents-
Whitemanticore, it is so neat to hear the players talking tactics and actually working towards supporting each other in the game to achieve a goal.

Looking back on the convention pictures, I just noticed I had a lot of young ladies commanding forces. Pretty cool!
