Across the Dead Earth!

Last night paid my first game of Across the Dead Earth. If you don't know what that is, it is a new skirmish game set in a post apocalyptic world. The game is based around the UK post apocalyptic setting but  the rules are open to set it anywhere. (new expansion just out with a bit more info on other parts of the post apocalyptic world). Each player controls a gang  and fight over loot and territory. is the link to the Facebook page. Also check out the across the Dead Earth gamers group. Great bunch of people always willing to offer advice and ideas.
We played a loot game,  five loot counters were placed around the battle field. The game took a while since we were learning the rules so lots of referring to the book but once you've got the basics down the game flows. The game has event cards you can play to throw a spanner in the works of your opponents plans. They give a nice randomness to any thing you might try. As your opponent may drop a card and ruin your day. My gang the 78th Smethwick Irregulars took a marginal win but my opponents gang the Coggers got a nice haul of loot also. After the game you can upgrade your gang with new skills new weapons etc.
Overall had a cracking evening can't wait for the next game.
