Increase membership

Post by jerryb on Tue Sep 01, 2009 12:41 pm

Frantic, I have some ideas on increasing battletech membership, and I believe in new players and not take away from any other gaming system.

Find and post on all the major BattleTech forums about Sunshine, War & Piecies, and Dragons Liar, a lot of the players that post may be in Florida and not realize there is a resource for them to play.

I want to have a demo "kit" with me at all times (in the car), so I may be able to show the game at any given moment. I need to talk to you about this in detail.

And of course any suggestion you have please share.

Used to be a good sized group of people who played at the Old Dragon's Lair in Ft Lauderdale and now known as Adventure Gaming Store, but that store is pathetic and who knows what remains of it.

Sunshine I know we have always joked was not the greatest of stores, but Dragon's Lair was pretty darn nasty and it's current state is awful. The store is not much of a store anymore and more of just a place where ppl play some games.

The store is like 10 by 14 feet or something, it's insanely tiny and most people got to use tables set outside on the sidewalk to play. Last time I went to see if they got in some newly released RPG book and I just had to turn around as a SINGLE table in the store with a group playing D&D took up the entire area and one could not even walk around to look at product.

During the holidays the store was operating without power for a while since they couldn't pay their bills. No power, no credit card sales, and no money to buy inventory. They were forced to downgrade to this new location which is just sad now.

I played battletech at Dragons Liar about a month ago. The store is not that great. No terrain. They play on Mapsheets. They also dont use anything past 3025 and I'm not crazy about the scenarios they run. Instead of using BV or tonnage to make a force they do draft style thing where you pick one mech from each class. Its a creative idea but I don't really like how they do it up there. And from what I got from them, they are not interested in playing anywhere but dragons liar where they are safe from clan tech and inner sphere omni mechs Smile

Frantic, I am researching the available websites and creating memberships so I can post members to let them know about Sunshine.

Any idea when the new starter box set is coming out?

They announced a new starter or simply a reprint of the current starter which is out of print right now?

My understanding is the new starter box will have more figurines (still plastic) and better maps (thick card stock, laminated), same price.

Could be wrong.

If true, I am going get it and put elements in a container and carry it in my car so I can demo or play the game at any time.

Joel stated that the New and Improved started box will be out in about two months (YEAH)!

Also Frantic and I are talking about BattleForce and how we can implement that system into BattleTech.

If has any ideas or suggestions to help improve BattleTech, please submit.
