CodeOne: Game 4 Farewell

With the new N4 rules dropped on Friday, we tried out one last game of CodeOne before we move back to the full game of Infinity.

Tentfinity: Code One

For this weekend’s Tentfinity, Sean and I tried out the new Code One ruleset from Corvus Belli. We split a box of the Operation Kaldstrom, Beyond Kaldstrom, and Dire Foes set and read through the new rules to put this “simplified” version of the game through its paces.

Tentfinity

With no reasonable end in sight for social distancing, my group has been experimenting with a variety of ways to still game. The hardest has been miniatures games as precise measurements and custom models/terrain are hard to replicate. We decided to try a different tack, starting with “Tentfinity”.

More Terraining

I actually meant to dovetail this with my last post but didn’t have time. The other terrain I was able to complete was for my Old West setting. I showed a few of these during my ongoing paint challenge but was able to take a few more shots to show it all off.

X-wing On My Own

With my new Death Star board finished up, I decided to put it through its paces. The biggest question is “how” in this new age of social distance gaming. Until some tech improves, Solo is my only option (since I’m wanting to play physically and not use one of the online ports).

Luckily, Fantasy Flight has provided just such a solution: enter the Solo Play Open Alpha ruleset.

A New Power In the Universe

Back in January, I played a game of X-wing on a set of poorly made Death Star tiles and thought I should work on fixing them. With the downtime and my scattered hobby focus at the moment, I decided to get this project off my to-do list.

Completion Is Only Ever Temporary

In April, I celebrated the completion of my Infinity collection. All was assembled. All was painted. Then this “CodeOne” thing was released with my faction and, well, all good things must come to an end so I’m back in the thick of it.

That Old Timey Feeling

For a while now I’ve been sitting on a project that really never went anywhere. I’d been wanting to play a western skirmish game and so I set about collecting various things I’d need to eventually set it all up but I never really got past the collection phase. Then, I saw Back to the Future Part III again and started getting the itch to finally start this venture up.
