I have one major goal this Thanksgiving break, play Mobile Frame Zero.
If you have not heard of this game I highly recommend it. It is a wargame that uses legos instead of the expensive mineratures we are used to. Does it replace other wargames? No not entirely for me but it certainly is a cheaper option. The Legos also open additional avenues for showing damage to terrain and units.
I have a rough couple of armies of frames made. I totally went way over the scale used/ recommended in the directions but meh.
Also plan on tweaking the rules to allow the use of mini figs as troopers.
It should be a blast!
