On Thursday, we did some playtesting of the bug attack scenario with a couple if the kids from the club. There were a few problems with the rules, but none that are unassailable. We will be discussing the following issues next Thursday to come up with solutions.
-The distance from the board edge to the fort wasn’t far, making the ranges of the weapons a little off.
-The way I came up with bringing bugs in wasn’t great.
-Bugs having to ‘attack’ the wall to climb it wasn’t very efficient.
-It was too easy for the marines to pick off the Big Bugs, collapsing the wave of bugs they were leading.
-We noticed the kids responded wierdly to the human force being just ‘marines’, so we will call them Space Marines from now on -that’s what they were anyway.
