    For the first time since March I was able to make a Star Trek Attack Wing tournament.

    Because of illness and important commitments happening to land on our OP weekends, I've missed a ton and got pretty out of practice. I even forgot that we build to 130 points now, and arrived with a 120 point fleet using the old rules. Luckily our players are awesome and I got some last minute help to put a full fleet together.

    Since WizKids hasn't put out an official OP in a while, we've been doing our own m...  more

    Last week got in three player games of **Pulsar 2849** and **Dragon Castle**

    Only my second play of **Pulsar** and I'd forgotten how action starved this game is. It's so important to get extra dice as often as possible. Even if the number isn't optimal, it's usually worth getting at least something, unless you really need to save extra dice (like on your personal tech tree) for another round.

    So I don't know whether to be horrified or not..

    If you want to buy the boardgame Extractor, here's the link, but if you want to buy the original game Squatter that this is based on here's its link too. I must admit to some curiousity as to the differences in play...
