Game over man!
Not at all, it’s only just begun! First, let’s unbox AVP: The Hunt Begins by Prodos!
I’ve been a huge fan of Alien since the film came out (I still can’t remember if I saw it in the cinema or not—I do remember I was a year young for the 16+ rating and they were pretty strict back then!) There is something just perfect about those first two films and I certainly do remember what game-changers they were after the shiny happies of Star Wars. Suddenly, space was gritty, industrial, and threatening.
So I’ve had my eye on this miniatures skirmish game for quite a while, though I’m glad I didn’t back the Kickstarter campaign, which from all reports was a bit of a mess. The Hunt Begins is the second edition of the game and s the greatly cleaned up version, and although the rulebook is still atrociously bad and the typography decidedly amateur hour, the game apparently is a lot of fun. I quickly painted up the highly detailed miniatures and I’ll be getting it to the table soon.
But first, the unboxing! Followed, as has been my habit lately, same day by the rules summary and reference, wherein I clean up the rulebook mess and organise the rules to be easy to follow and, you know, playable 🙂 Download it now. It’s the only way to be sure.
