ive played battletech games on PC since the crescent hawks inception :)
I still remember how blown away i was by the Mechwarrior 2 intro scene.
Somebody upscaled the intros on youtube to 4k


the HBS battletech game was good - i play with a mod called Roguetech which adds so much to it.

never played MW5 though.
Thanks for the tip of the HBS mod - do you play this MP or SP?

First games catchup in about 3 months. The usual four of us, plus another friend.

Firstly April of Pandemic Legacy Season 0 - mostly a success. One objective fully completed and the other 2 out of 3 parts (counts as a success, but there is an on-going penalty for not 3 of 3).
Trials disrupted in 2 out of 3 cities. The third got infected.

Then onto Horrified. Taking on Dracula and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. We won easily. Would bump difficulty to 3 monsters next time.

After that the friend with Wingspan had gotten the Oceania expansion, so played with the local birds. Wife and I tied for last behind the other three (but not huge margins).

Finished off the night with Just One. With the extra fifth player we had a few clashes for words, which at four players we rarely do.

A second gaming catch up in short succession Sunday.

Firstly Pandemic Legacy Season 0 - so far doing best of the three. May we completed all three objectives fully.
We even managed to have only one Incident and actually reduced the number of cities under surveillance. Of course we’ll probably now crash badly next time after such a good result.

Then Stuffed Fables for the first time since last July. To finally finish the first Story (several stories, each made up of multiple scenarios). We plan to try and go Pandemic / Stuffed Fables to get through it before we have great great grandchildren with Stuffies 😳

Finished off with Sushi Party Go (came second) and then Just One.

Tonight completed another scenario of Forgotten Waters. We’d finished most on the weekend, so wrapped up with a couple of big ship to ship fights. Plus got to smash the Megaladon earlier.

First time in 3 scenarios managed to get one of my Pirates get the maximum 5 of 5 constellations (bonuses you get by getting enough skills along the way). Juan the Lovesick Pirate got his Mermaid bride (and 5000 kids) in the end 😳

Played our first session of Forgotten Waters last Friday - great game, hilarious, just good fun. Our gaming group are well versed in serious, competitive games, but FW was a nice change of pace and got a resounding thumbs up.

So the reign of successes in Pandemic Legacy Season 0 ends. We got 2 out of 3 objectives fully completed and the third partially for June, so considered a success. As per Legacy’s common theme, no good deed goes unpunished with down to only 4 event cards for a crack at July as well. Also three objectives, which we missed all of 😒

Some new actions and cards added at the end of the first try at July that should help quite a bit for our second try.

For June we cracked the safe house puzzle and bugged the control tower successfully. We only interrupted 1 of 4 trials, that’s considered a success, but given that left us with three more cities infected, a pyrrhic win.

July introduced Soviet satellites to monitor anyone outside a safe house (burning cover), later in the game (cards to launch them put in the 4th and 5th escalation groups of cards). Some stuff to help mitigate them given at the end of July, so fingers crossed do better next try.

After just some quick games. Flourish, which roped eldest into for a 5 player game. Then Get the McGuffin and Just One. 2 scores of 10, best we’ve gotten is 12 only once. That elusive 13 of 13 we’ll crack one day.

- really enjoyed this one, we had our uncle bring it over and it was a terrific worker placement sort of game. Lots of content and decisions to make. Loved the deck building element and how it synced up with resource managemen.

Cubitos
- new favourite. Dice builder, racing game. Fairly light weight but lots of fun building your dice pool and seeing things gather momentum as you progress. Loved it. Will probably offload a few other dice rolling, push your luck games now as I can’t see us wanting to play them over this.

Marvel United

- a few more rounds of this game to try and work through the huge amount of characters and modules in this game.

I grabbed a copy of this recently (thanks Christmas Gameology voucher) and have organised a group; just need to get the game started!

I'm in a different group for season 1 and we're almost finished. We just nabbed an L in the first half of December so only one game of it to go.
