    I enjoyed a game of Spectre Operations over the Xmas break, with friends, pitting US Army Rangers against all sorts of foes as they battled to rescue the President.

    In a game where identifying friend from foe was not as simple as you would prefer, the bullets and grenades flew in this desperate rescue mission.

    Great looking game!  Lots of good action there.  Kind of surprised at the contractors actions though, I mean that’s a HUGE blackmark against them as well as loss of the objective which would have been sort of world shattering.  (guess it’d only have an effect if a campaign game)  Seems like some pretty cool rules, a buddy really likes them so I will let him build up forces and then play with his toys!

    Did you get a low-down on who the contractors actually worked for, or was that irrelevant?

    Hi,

    That’s a big table. I thought Spectre Operations was designed for 3×3 tables. Or is it easy to scale up? It was a great battle report. Thanks for posting it.

    I’ve only just bought the rules and am slowly getting into them. The book is very nicely produced and the rules look quite easy, perhaps deceptively so.

    May I ask what forces were used, in terms of factions, numbers and load-out?

    Thanks,

    Colin

    Hi Colin,

    Thanks for your comments.  The game was easy to scale up as we had 4 players, so need the extra space to deploy (although most of the action was in one corner.  I have played several games and found the larger table better as it makes it possible to out manoeuvre each other. The secret is to have lots of scenery to break up line of sight.  Unit size needs to be kept small as its hard to keep abreast of what’s going on, rules are simple but there is a lot of details.
