Action Points #002: Nemesis, Hate, Planet Apocalypse

By January 30, 2018 Boardgames, Videos

Battle speed!… Attack speed!… Ramming speed!

Action Points the second is brought to you from the great outdoors (damn cicadas)!

Let’s get up early and go to the beach this Sunday! suggested my long-suffering partner. Little did she realise that even there, there would be no escape from my all-consuming need to continually deliver quality gaming content to the supporters of the Order …

And so, she was press-ganged into filming episode 002 of Action Points! Here it is, complete with an astonishingly loud background of cicada noise which much tweaking of filters managed to significantly diminish – at the cost, sadly, of some vocal quality, a compromise for which I apologise. In this episode, I talk about what I’ve been up to hobby-wise, have a quick look at a few Kickstarters, and announce the winners of the poll for the Order’s next rules summary.

Dive in!

  • I was expecting the first bit to start out like a Monty Python episode and you were just going to run up to the screen and say, “It’s…”

    I also backed off from Hate. I love Adrian Smith’s work and thought I was going to be all over this when I first heard about a mature-themed game, but something about the campaign just wasn’t doing it for me.

    • It must be influenced by that, I’m sure!

      Yeah, it’s two main things for me – samey looking figures and basic combat gameplay. And the whole one-note approach is a bit disappointing from a creative standpoint, just when games are starting to open up to more interesting ideas. It’s all very BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
