Warp War!: Attack of the Microgames

Perceptors at Full Ensign Tannish! Yes Folks, its  Warp War!

A intro open demo Play by Forum game has started between the Sumerians (Mike Read) and the B.L.O.B (Babylonian Lunar Orbital Brigade, me) at Boardgame Geek Warp War page

BLOB forces have surged in a rearward fashion from the perfidious Sumerian Incursion  at Ubeid.

We're running the 40BP fixed forces Warpship only learning scenario with no, resupply repair etc and  no systemships.

Follow all the action Warp War demo at BoardgameGeek

Or via RSS

Initially we're using the vanilla 2nd Printing Rules, although after we've run through the basic and Advanced Scenario, we possibly may move on to using the WWDG (WarpWar Design Group) 2nd ed Rules  and variants.

A powerful BLOB invasion fleet intrudes dangerously close to the Sumerian homeworld.

Much gnashing of teeth and thrashing of tentacles ensues.

Will the brave Sumerians hold... or will they assume the status of dietary nutrients.

Tune in to BGG to find out!
