    dag, I dont' have this game and have never played it... but the rules look good. Although I'm confused on one point: is this FF-wide? or just St. L?

    ...I have no idea what anyone is talking about here.

    After talking to a couple members, I thought it's be fun for StL to host a game on the boards. Lots of boards do it. They give away colors and titles as the prize. We decided that GB would be best, because we love playing it here so much.

    As for GB vs Clone Campaigns, I'm thinking that most people have CC by now. I suppose if both parties agree regular GB can be played.

    But seriously dude, you can pick it up for like $20 or less now, why don't you have it yet?? It's so much more fun than regular GB.

    Hmmm.. Looks good Dajuan! The only thing is, and it's been a peeve of mine, and I might be revealing a weakness of my playing abilities, but can we just maybe please tell people that the GUNGANS are OUTLAWED?!? They're so cheap...

    JCF, they may be cheap but they stink, so that cancels them out. Really they are good on water maps and that's it, but your changes of getting a water map are pretty slim.

    Katy, I'm sorry you can't this time, maybe next time though. The two month clause is so a person can't just join Fan Force to play the game. I want this to be a FF only game. I forsee us doing this again, so you will get to play later when all the kinks are worked out. I'd be happy to play versus you individually any time you want though.

    If I ever got the game, sure. As long as I can help referee with you, I'm peachy.

    no air cruisers

    They're actually quite weak if you know what to do against them....

    EDIT: Anyone wanting to play some pick up games to get me some practice let me know.

    Are we talking about those ships I like to call Nuke ships? ;) Those things are easy to take down. And I do enjoy using them... The games won't last that long though, Tech Level wise.

    Ok, I am pretty sure he meant cheap like, using those is cheap, or thats a cheesy way of playing, or they are broken. And for some reason I can't actually think of a non-gamer way of describing them.

    yes i meant cheap as in i think of it as cheating because one shot can take down too many troops

    Yeah, that's true. If you have the Droid army.. ;) Most human troops can somewhat take the hits better from the "nuke ships" than the droids can.

    I say, if it is in the game, of course it is fair, but geez, I still think those Gungans are as annoying as heck. [face_beatup] :rolleyes:
