This is somewhat of a cross-post from this thread on the MERCS forums ( ), which documents a recent MERCS demo/game night I organized at the local store. It's hopefully the first of a series of posts I'm envisioning on MERCS. This game is currently worming its way through my brain quite a bit. I really like the art, the fluff and the system and it really makes me think about both my strategy and in-game tactics. In-short, the things I tend to not think about when playing casually. Stay tuned for more:
Just wanted to document the action that took place last night at Dream Wizards in MD. We had a good turn out for a combination of games and demos. The Forum's Hunter776 drove down and was a great help in providing an extra brain and set of hands to work with the new players. Everyone that got a demo was interested in playing what was in effect a full game. Matchups included ISS-Texico, USCR-CCC and Texico-USCR.
There were a number of people who wanted to get a demo but already had other plans; I'll get a bit more forward-advertising done ahead to time to make sure they're locked in. Hopefully we can get a couple more events in before the tournament Dr. Andy is running on 10/7 nearby.
Here are some photos of the games (I'll make sure to have a legitimate camera next time, as this one didn't quite do the job):
