GenCon 2013 – Retro Raygun Demo – Cosplay

We had an amazing time at GenCon 2013.  The demos were great fun.  Each game had six players; three for the Galacteers and three for the Robot Legion.  One game ended in a Galacteer win and the other ended in a Robot win.  Everyone had a great time (except the one guy who got crushed by Queen Mechanica…. I tried to get him to retreat…but some people just don’t take a hint… haha).

The scenario included opposing forces crossing a jungle planet surface, breaking into an ancient labyrinth, securing an ancient device, and getting back off the board.  All this had to be done while monsters attacked from the deep jungle.  We completed the teaching, and the game in the planned three hours.  It is always nice to finish a game during a convention rather than just get part way through.

The Cosplay was a riot.  We couldn’t walk thirty feet through the hall without being stopped for photos.  There were fewer photos once we were in the game hall so we could concentrate on the action.

Can wait till we roll out the finished version of Retro Raygun.

Raygun Assault and Rescue

Had a great game of Raygun over the break.  The scenario went right down to the wire.  Ace was the only Galacteer left when he was able to rescue Jane.  Thanks to Tom for bringing his amazing scratch-built rockets.
