The first game I ever got to play with NELUG was just about a TPK for my team by a single dragon. http://home.earthlink.net/~joecomeau/im ... lord07.gif
80% of the deaths were from a single breath-blast, proving that there isn't always safety in numbers.
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 .
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.
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.
 That's right, I referenced Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I'm that dorky.
