And when you get down to it all, that is exactly what Brikwars is about. Pain- unrelenting, unmerciful pain.

Do minifigs feel pain? If so than we are horrible people.

We were horrible people to begin with.
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

Space Pirate hero getting cut to half and carried on a tank. And then cutted off his head.

if that wasn't painful to me, it's humiliating.

I had at first minifigs were inanimate; but that is incorrect; they simply love war; and therefore, they make the choice themselves, and the majority of us are not horrible.

The first game I ever got to play with NELUG was just about a TPK for my team by a single dragon.

80% of the deaths were from a single breath-blast, proving that there isn't always safety in numbers.

Wow.

I didn't know a breath-blast had that much power.

Yeah, well this particular dragon belonged to our resident uber-munchkin. Somehow he always manages to end up with troops that deal out nuclear damage and have enough armor to take on the Death Star... No, bigger: V'ger [1].

Of course, it didn't help that my side went the other way with their CPs and tried for as many troops as possible. When you do that, you find your sliding scale for armor actually reaches down to tissue-paper. Couple that with my award-winning tactic of bunch-'em-up-and-send-'em-out and it's a sweet, sweet, recipe for turning frontline troops into smoldering briquettes.

*le sigh*

I think if I had not already played several games beforehand with my brother, I would have never touched BrikWars again. Which would have been a real tragedy. NELUG has some of the swankest games.


[1] That's right, I referenced Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I'm that dorky.

Yeah, I'm totally thinking about joining. Don't know when I'd have the time to go to games though. Do they announce them long in advance? And what level of commitment is required once you join?

Generally, yes. It's rare that a game gets suggested/announced and is played before something like 6 weeks pass. There's a lot of back and forth to see what date works for the most amount of people. Most games are themed in some way, with a back-story and guidelines on what to build. I can't remember the last game that was freeform. They just don't exist anymore. Sometimes a game is put entirely together by one or two people and everyone else just has to show up. I know the last game was all Sullivan (although I missed it and it was allegedly awesome). I've got something in the works that's like that, but it probably won't see the light of day until next year.

And what level of commitment is required once you join?


NELUG or the NELUG BrikWar games? The former is up to you once you've actually joined. As for the latter, well, what would be the absolute minimum amount of blood your body could operate on? Just over that.

The most painfull deaths(it was a massed one) took place in my living room and invloded 4 people and a total of about 1500 mini-figs. anyway,my nuclear-armed Y-wing was heading for a NOD themed army,only to be shot down half way. It veered off to the left,towards MY army, and carshed. A turn later a dimmey set off the nuke. Game over for me.

And that my friend, is why we have a no nukes rule. Anyone I play with I make sware not to use any weapon that would just destroy everyone in one turn. That just sucks the friend out of it all :(
