April 14th was filled with people that were trying out the latest version of the Battletech rules. We had three separate games going, all the way from a pair of one-on-one games up to a massive multi-map game that included multiple players each commanding lances or vehicle squadrons. We capped off the event with an unboxing of the newest Battletech game from Catalyst Games.
We tried out the free downloadable quickstart rules for the game, and there were even free copies printed up for players to take home and try out. The rules played quickly and scaled up well enough to allow really big games.
The boxed set contained a wealth of Battletech stuff, from quickstart rules, cardboard mounted maps, full rulesbook and even a painting guide – all printed in full color. This is an amazing amount of stuff for the $50.00 price.
And it wasn’t just Battletech at the day. We also had some Warhammer players running a battle between two gorgeously-painted armies.
We have photos of the Battletech games and unboxing below. We will try to get some photos of the Warhammer game as soon as we get them in our hands. Enjoy the pictures below!
