    My teen son and I played our first game of Battlespace today. Scenario 1. We played co-op with a total of four characters. Made a few mistakes for the first couple turns but sorted it out in the end. We played in 15mm, tape for roads, boxes for buildings, pill bottles for trees, etc. and in the end on a 20″ square area. I thought it went quick but was hoping we were on 2′ square area. Best part is my computer gaming son is pumped so hopefully another game tomorrow. I bought, read the rules but this was the first game and was almost a month since I last read it so mistakes were understandable. Have to read it again today and get stuff ready for scenario 2.

    It was good to play co-op as I could see us losing interest, getting upset if it was one vs one. I was looking forward to this game after the mention on the Sit Rep pod cast, and some discussion on some other game site which gave it good marks. We didn’t use the optional (advanced?) rules until one of the sitrep cards made us capture an insurgent. The hand to hand rules are advanced and were the only ones we used. Now to see how re-playable it is (different scenarios), if the interest keeps up, how involved the advanced rules add to the game and whether or not we desire a higher level of detail. The last will demand quite a few games I hope. I am also looking at how easy to roll your own scenarios will be. Anyone with thoughts on that or links to sites where doing so with these rules in discussed please do so.

    So I had a few questions and needed to re-read the rules after our first game. I have some questions and assumed answers based on my reading of the rules and the cards. Robert Salters has a presence on facemess but I don’t and have been shut out when I tried to join. So if anyone has a way to contact him with these questions please do. Thank you.

    I bought the rules but haven’t taken a good look at it.

    Tired is enough.
