With Ryan becoming evil, but Matt joining in, the "good" side has roughly 4,000 pts more than the "evil" side, but I don't know what Mack and Cal are bringing to the table (Warlord Titan is all I know) so the "evil" side is about 6,500 pts short. We need some serious discussion of teams at the beginning of the day tomorrow.

Plus, to be honest. I really won't be down with playing against a Warlord titan unless it is an accurate representation. Otherwise Apocalypse becomes "who can bring the biggest plastic toy to the board".

No need to be offended by this, it's just one of the things that separates this gaming group from the other group you guys are a part of.

Heel Ryan! The reason people are leaving that group and joining this one is because this is better.

Yeah, most of the guys over in the other group are younger. They were also taught to play a very different way than most of us were (not rules wise, just the vibe there).

I am really glad these guys are all coming over. We can all learn from each other.

Or, more likely they can learn from you guys. I really don't care, I just play to play.

i know, but if they don't change quickly, they will bring the bad habbits from that group, and quite frankly, i don't want it.

What bad habbits? I did my best over there to correct them, but it will be really easy to correct them here with a positive attitude.

Remember to think before you type young schaschwa. There are about 5 people from that group over here now, so people can change and learn.

I hate to get in the way of a good altercation, but I need to pull my card for the game tomorrow. Sorry about the late notice, but i am not sure i can make it on time. I will stop by later to see how things are going

this seems like it is getting too big. i think it would be better if we divided into two smaller games. i'm not really interested in playing 25,000 points a side with 15 other people. that's just what i think though. can anyone else roll with that?

Probably best to just see what we end up with tomorrow.

We can decided from there. See everyone at 10.

I'm out as well, didn't realize we were starting at 10. I just now got home from Argosy so that's way too early for me. Have fun everyone.

Yeah, as we all kind of agreed. Apocalypse really doesn't work when played like that.

I think it is best played with small teams, or even just 1v1 with one army on a side... or two that have a very good reason to be fighting together.

I'm kind of burned out on Apocalypse though.

Yeah I did. I feel like it needs way more planning.

Two days for a game would be nice too.

Wow, don't know if I would be able to do two straigh days... lol.... Even though there was a lot of sitting around and waiting, it was still cool to get my feet wet with the whole game thing Smile If we do a big group again, I would think it would be more interesting if we only used, say, 500 pts apiece and it would probably go quicker... Oh well, it was fun, though!

only problem with 500 a piece in apoc is that it would 3k a side of crap. nothing that heavy hitting the table.

I think the trick is smaller teams. 2 max imo.

We had 3k a side of 3 on 2 game at the house and it went well. That was on a 8'x4' board. What kind of area were you guys on?

We had around 8k. On a 12x4. In future, we should get wider not longer... as it recommends.

I think you can play with as many people we used but we need 2 things.... 1st is more points(yes more points per side) reason for this is it gets more involied on each side(more in the start and more brought in reserves mixes it up more) also we need more time to play the game so 2 days is almost a must(we would have to move it somewere more game friends so we could just leave the stuff and come back the next day without worry about something happening to it. Also we will have to undertstand that yea there will be waiting....so bring something to do weither it is a book or working on models, its just to kill time while waiting
