Getting started on my bucket list !

Postby Buffrockjaw on Sun 25 Feb 2018 16:58

I'm finally getting an "office" at home! I'll be able to leave games setup 24/7, so I can play The Stars at War scenarios that came in my Legacy CD!

I'm going to have magnetic dry erase boards to hang my system, interception and tactical maps on, and I'll be able to magnetize all my counters so that they won't get displaced by a careless bump!

With luck, maybe I'll be able to play through ISW1-ISW4 !!!

Woohoo! Don't make the mistake that I did and get your office messy with a bunch of other projects. It's hard to get games going if you have to clean up first.

Now I'd love to see pictures of how you did that. I've thought about it, but thought that it would take too much work for the counters...

With luck, maybe I'll be able to play through ISW1-ISW4 !!!


And post the scenario results to the board, I hope ;)

I won't, it will be a Starfire-only room

It probably will, but at long last I will have time! I'll try and get some pictures up!

I will be sure to! Especially when I am defeated by my kids

Let me know if you want some digital scans of some chits. I know they're 4th ed and not 3rdR, but I have a full digital set of all the chits for 4th edition (if that's useful to your setup).

There used to be a bunch of counters for download on the Starfire site's download page. Might be worth a look.

You mean look in the download forum until we get the site rebuilt, which is after we finish the republications and updates? I think I see that in there between some of your other words :)

I can put those files into the download forum. If I'm remembering correctly, we have the Ultra Counter sheets, godsgopher's Classic Starfire countersheets, and a couple of other Classic Starfire remakes. Would you like me to make those available in the downloads forum?
