Game April 22 Game Night

On April 22nd, we will be playing ACTA-SF, I think we will be doing an Orion scenario, which will be submitted as a potential Orion Scenario. I'm expecting at least 1 new player this session!

Game Night at CO's house

ACTA-SF Game night March 25th, we are looking to do a Romulan vs. Orion game, based of the scenario encounter at Denebola from SL89.0 if we can convert the SFB ships to ACTA-SF. We will begin at 6PM.

Game Night at CO's house

We ran a convoy escort scenario which had the Federation escorting 6 freighters, against the Orion Pirates, using the ACTA-SF rule set. after 5 turns the Orions where able to over run and defeat the Federation escorts by out maneuvering them and killing the freighters. We had 5 players for this session, all returning players. over all a good night of playing ACTA-SF

Game Night at CO's house

We will be having our monthly ATCA-SF game night. Scenario and sides TBD.

Game Night at CO's house

We had 5 players, ACTA-SF, Gorn vs Romulan, set-up was Romulans where attempting to resupply a forward base so it could be upgraded, Gorn mission was to stop the freighters or destroy the base, The Gorn opted to wipe out the Freighters. Game lasted 4 turns with a Gorn Victory but left the Base intact. we found that what the moderator thought was a balanced fight turned out to be very lop-sided. Additionally we had one new player join us, who after the game asked where he could buy the rules for himself and asked to come back to our next session.

Game Night at CO's house

ACTA-SF game night, we had 6 players tonight 4 of which where inexperienced, so almost a Demo, we played a 4 on 2, Federation and Kzinti (4) vs Klingon (2), the inexperienced players won but took a beating from the experienced Klingon players. The new players enjoyed the game and will be back for our next game night. Next game night for the group will be on January 15th to let everyone enjoy the Holidays season.

Counsel of Five Nations Convention

Members of our group (Tom Talasco and Mark Lurz), run 3 demo games at the council of Five Nations, during this convention we demo'd ACTA-SF, we had 7 players sight up over the two day convention, 3 of which joined our battle group. Of the 7 players, Only 2 had played the game before our demo, the 2 players which have played this game prior to the convention, said we ran a well flowing game and kept it basic due to doing it as a demo and not knowing the experience the their players had with the game

Game Day - November 13th

We will be playing ACTA-SF at my home in Clifton Park, NY. We will have some new players introduced at this session and discuss up coming game dates and which games we will play (ACTA-SF, F&E, FC or SFB)
