My son will be starting his third year at University this fall; he is home for the summer. We have always had a good relationship, some ups and downs while he was in high school, but he is a good kid. One of the reasons there have been few posts this summer is that I am consious that there will be few summers left with him like this and I am trying to make the most of it. Soon grown up life will interfer. It is a good thing and my wife and I ( mainly my wife) have spent many years preparing him for it but I still cherish the little boy holding my hand waiting for ice cream.
Unfortunatly he doesn't share my love of gaming but he will play SAGA and Bag the Hun occasionally and does like baseball. My son likes Star Wars, has Legos. He came up with an idea-- why not use Lazy TW&T with his Legos?
(I don't know much about Star Wars other than watching the movies. So forgive me if the details are wrong.)
The Imperial and rebel forces meet on the planet Dantooie (sp?) over a very important foot bridge!
I am told by reliable sources that the planet's surface is striped.
With that the rebel survivors slip away across the striped landscap, the forces of justice to weakened to follow.
The rules worked great!
For those of you that would like to try this the Imperial forces were:
3 Squads of 8 men each 2 Gr I leaders, 1 Gr II leader and a Gr III LT + a MMG
The Rebel Scum had
2 Squads of 10 men each with 1 Gr II and 1 Gr I leader and a Gr III Lt + a MMG
Most importantly we had a blast. It was as good as getting ice cream.
