I had the pleasure of having (7) young people at my table today and we rocked back to the eighties by playing some good ole' Star Frontiers...
Now I don't mind the boxed campaign setting BUT come on this is Sci-Fi and supposed to be a little more modern so I used my own setting which is a cross between Aliens and the Honor Harrington novels! We had a mentalist and then some pilots/soldiers and agents.
The kids loved it! I started them out with a briefing for one mission and then switched their mission while they were in cryosleep!! Synthetics that had gone bad at a secret medical lab...what a blast. In two weeks we continue and they all want to continue playing.
We will finish up this op and then I have to go and rob some more from my old Top Secret days looks like! I have a few ideas and they also asked for me to draw my star map...oh boy off to find my notes!
