Weekender: Team Yankee & The Bolt Action Summer Offensive

August 8, 2015 by lloyd

Welcome to The Weekender where we’re doing a bit of a round up of things we loved at Gen Con this year and also considering a bit of alternative history with Team Yankee on the cards from Battlefront…

Great Wargaming Survey

The Great Wargaming Survey is still going on and you have a few days left to have your say on the project and be in with the chance of winning some goodies just by answering some questions.

We discuss some of the findings so far and have our say on what we think of the statistics as they stand.

Bolt Action

Talking of statistics, the Bolt Action Summer Offensive is going great guns with a whole host of people from across the world getting involved to log their results.

As well as that we have news that Bolt Action will soon be island hopping with Empires In Flames where you get to send the Marines into battle.

The Western Front isnt being left out however with Winter Americans coming soon.

Flames Of War – Team Yankee

Going with a ‘What If’ scenario Battlefront have started talking about their upcoming game which will follow the Cold War escalation after World War II, Team Yankee.

Look forward to some big tank battles and if this talk of nuclear war has got you excited consider checking out the board game, Twilight Struggle too.

Gen Con Round Up (Part One)

Last but very much not least we have the first part of a full weekend of Gen Con round-ups.

We’ll be discussing Hawk Wargames‘ Dropfleet Commander, Halo: Ground Battles from Spartan, and Privateer Press’ Undercity board game.

Then we discuss a bit on Conan: Rise of Monsters and those all new Fantasy Flight Star Wars models for X-Wing and Imperial Assault.

Join Backstage To Watch XLBS Tomorrow

Look out for more tomorrow in XLBS and a big thanks to DawnGianna for covering the convention. You can see Part One and Part Two for more on the best four days in gaming.
