Battle Report: Last Game of the Year

The gaming group I'm a part of usually takes November and December off due to all the holidays and general busyness of the season.  But this past Sunday several members of the group had a clear moment in all our schedules.  So we decided to get together, along with two newcomers, to have a game of MFZ: RA.  Here are the results.

Me (3 Frames & 11 Systems) = (7 Points per Asset) * (4 assets) = 28 points.
Occam's Spork (4 Frames & 16 Systems) = (3 Points per Asset) * (5 assets) = 15 points.

Tom (4 Frames & 16 Systems) = (3 Points per Asset) * (5 assets) = 15 points.
Narbey (4 Frames & 16 Systems) = (3 Points per Asset) * (5 assets) = 15 points.
Gusindor 
(4 Frames & 16 Systems) = (3 Points per Asset) * (5 assets) = 15 points.

Gusindor was selected to be Primary Attacker by lowest dice roll.

Here's how the table looked at the start of the game.  My squad started out in the center of the table.  Occam's Spork's squad controls the lower left corner.  Tom's controls the upper left corner.  Narbey's controls the upper right corner.  Gusindor's controls the lower right corner.







Events of Turn 1 (DDC@11): A fair amount of movement and jockeying for position occured.  Gusindor did the most damage with his HtH specialist, dealing three hits to my HtH specialist.


Me: 28 points.
Occam's Spork: 15 points.

Tom: 15 points.
Narbey: 15 points.
Gusindor: 
15 points.


Events of Turn 2 (DDC@8): Narbey destroys one of Gusindor's Soldier frames.  Occam's Spork seizes Gusindor's Station, then later in the turn does the Station Dance to avoid damage on the frame that took control.


Me: 28 points.
Occam's Spork: 18 points.

Tom: 15 points.
Narbey: 15 points.
Gusindor: 9
 points.


Events of Turn 3 (DDC@4): I seize Gusindor's Station away from Occam's Spork.  Occam's Spork destroys that frame and takes back control of the Station.  Gusindor destroys my Soldier frame.


Occam's Spork: 18 points.
Tom: 15 points.
Narbey: 15 points.
Me: 14 points.
Gusindor: 9
 points.


Events of Turn 4 (DDC@1): Occam's Spork kills one of Tom's HtH Specialist frames.  Gusindor seizes my Station.  Narbey destroys one of Gusindor's and one of Tom's frames with a single shot then seizes my Station.  Narbey destroys another one of Gusindor's frames, aka "Shinkicker".  Tom kills Narbey's frame that had taken my Station, allowing Gusindor's frame to recapture it.  The Doomsday Clock is ticked down to zero.


Occam's Spork: 18 points.
Narbey: 12 points.
Tom: 9 points.
Me: 7 points.
Gusindor: 6
 points.

Thoughts & Observations:

  • This was Occam's Spork's first game.  I think we have another convert.  :-)
  • This was the debut of Narbey's new squad.
  • The Primary Attacker position was once again decided with a die roll.
  • We only used one Single Shot Rocket per squad as I forgot to make any for the squad Occam's Spork was using and had to loan it one from my squad.
  • The third and fourth turns really got chaotic.
  • I could have gotten away with having full systems for my squad instead of underbidding.
