Battle Report: Teslaville @ PAX East 2018

As is the tradition for the past four years or so, I arranged a full game of Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack for one of the days of PAX East.  This one was kind of a last minute affair, so the only other players besides me were my long time PAX East friends Vlad and Ryan.  Read on to see what happened.

Vlad (4 Frames & 15 Systems) = (7 Points per Asset) * (6 assets) = 42 points.
   Tank -- 2Ra+d8/2Y/2W.
   Blue Scrambler -- 2Rd/1G/2Y/2W.
   Yellow Scrambler -- 2Rd/1G/1Y/2W.
   Chub -- 2Rh/2B/1G+d8/2W.

Me (5 Frames & 20 Systems) = (5 Points per Asset) * (7 assets) = 35 points. (Argonauts)
   Red Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Orange Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Yellow Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Green Recon by Fire -- 2Ra+d8/2Y/2W.
   Smoke Recon by Fire -- 2Ra+d8/2Y/2W.


Ryan (6 Frames & 24 Systems) = (3 Points per Asset) * (8 assets) = 24 points.  (Solidboxes)
   Yellow Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Orange Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Green Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Blue Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Light Blue Brawler -- 2Rh+d8/2B/1Gd8/2W.
   Red Recon by Fire -- 2Ra+d8/2Y/2W.

This is what the table looked like at the start of the game.



Events of Turn 1 (DDC @ 11): Vlad's Blue Scrambler jumps over and captures Ryan's Purple Station.  Ryan's Orange frame hits Vlad's Blue Scrambler for 1.  My Green frame shoots from the top of the train tracks and hits Vlad's Blue Scrambler for 3.  Vlad's Yellow Scrambler hits Ryan's Orange frame for 1.  Vlad's Chub hits Ryan's Yellow frame for 2.  My Smoke frame, also on the train tracks, hits Vlad's Tank for 1.

Ryan: 24 points.
Vlad: 21 points.

Here's a couple aftermath pictures.


Thoughts & Observations:
  • We didn't use Single Shot Rockets because Vlad didn't make any for his squad and I didn't have any to lend.
  • Ryan used my Solidbox squad..
  • I debuted a new Lego/Kre-O brickblend squad.
  • I added a few pieces of terrain from my demo set up to the table as I remember Tom saying it was a little lacking the last time we used this table setting.
  • Some onlookers were a little confused with all the terrain on the table.
  • This was a really fun game.
  • As I mentioned before, I have a new phone with a crappy camera.
