I've got a review of a classic game up at one of the classic American hobby games. It's a new Battletech intro set, fresh for its 25th anniversary, and if you've been looking for a way to try the game out there is literally no better way to do so. This is a great, great product. The only problem is that, well, it's a 25 year old game and it hasn't exactly kept up with the design paradigm. Which is kind of commendable, but I do think there was an opportunity here to bring Battletech to a more modern gaming audience. But whatever, you can run an Awesome around on the map and smash a Jenner. Those are my least favorite mechs, I hate them for some reason.

Sometime in the early 1980s, MichaelBarnes’ parents thought it would be a good idea to buy him a board game to keep him busy with some friends during one of those high-pressure, “free” timeshare vacations. It turned out to be a terrible idea, because the game was TSR’s Dungeon! - and the rest, as they say, is history. Michael has been involved with writing professionally about games since 2002, when he busked for store credit writing for Boulder Games’ newsletter. He has written for a number of international hobby gaming periodicals and popular Web sites. From 2004-2008, he was the co-owner of Atlanta Game Factory, a brick-and-mortar retail store. He is currently the co-founder of and as well as the Editor-in-Chief of Miniature Market’s Review Corner feature. He is married with two childen and when he’s not playing some kind of game he enjoys stockpiling trivial information about music, comics and film.
