for my Son's 12th birthday we had a Star Trek themed party, and I designed and ran a Star Trek game with a bunch of kids that had never played a table top game before.

Here's a few pictures, including my "cloaked" Klingon ships. The gang caught on quickly to both the rules and tactics, and it was a near run battle.




For a full battle report and more pictures, Warp on over to my blog.

Nice work. Except for the guy in the striped shirt who is too cool for school (but is still wearing a Starfleet patch), everyone looks engaged and having fun.

Oberlindes- I think I just caught him in a weird pose. He was actually one of the Fed ships that survived- he spun around at just the right moment and threw a spread of torps cathcing two of the Birds of preys. It was movie epic!

Oh and note they are all wearing badges. That was part of the party favors.

Oh, indoctrination rituals! Excellent! Well done! Looks like it was a fun game all around. :)

That kid in the striped shirt looks like he knows what he's doing and is thinking, "amateurs." lol

Well done party, sir.

79th- indeed you do! And my Mrs. is a fantastic Baker and designer.
Symphonic- thanks- bringing new blood into the hobby is an ongoing quest of mine.

Looks like a great event!

Starship! as from Flagship Games? I know Scale Creep still has some copies. I have one somewhere from when the Flagship was shutting down, or so I recall.

More power to your 'ongoing quest!'

The Beast- thanks man! I was one of Flagship games at the time, now own Skull and Crown. Taking the rules back to the roots, as it were to teach my son.

Nice work!

Where did you get the cloaked ship templates?
