Hi folks, my name is Brian, and I'm the GM for the Classic Battletech games on most Saturday afternoons at Merlyns!
A little about me first. I'm new to the Spokane area, having moved here at the beginning of June. I've been a FanPro Commando for about a year now, which means I promote CBT in this area. Merlyns is a GREAT place to learn and play this great wargame- I played at several different locations in Denver, and nothing even comes close to the kind of environment Merlyns provides this game. They even get new books in sometimes before I find out they've been released- not bad!
We play games most Saturdays starting at noon. Oftentimes, these games are centered around a mercenary unit called The Black Legion. Players who are able to make the trip to play often join the Legion and along with the rest of their team will pick the contracts they will go on, fight out anywhere from one to five scenarios based on that contract, and then go to war! Teamwork is encouraged, as is good gamesmanship of course.
If we're not running a Legion game though, we usually have something fun to do. Among the 'one shot' games we've done in the past few months there have been a king of the hill fight, several battles out of FASA/FanPro books, a Clan-style Grand Melee, and a fun game called CBT Backstabber where your team changes constantly. And there's a lot more coming up too.
If you're a CBT veteran, please feel free to stop by and join the fun! If you've never played but want to try it, let me know and I'd love to help you learn the game.
So come on by on Saturdays at noon, and watch for the Battletech gaming group! I'll be the tall guy with the goatee!
