First Game of Mad Maximilian 1934 with real humans

As you know if you read this blog from time to time, I’ve had kind of this thing about the Mad Maximilian 1934 game from Mana Press, car models produced by my old friend Nic Robson at Eureka Miniatures.  I like the time period, I like the technology being represented and I’ve enjoyed converting the vehicle models to use in the game as past posts might indicate.  Last Saturday was my first time running an actual of Mad Maximilian 1934 for a group of real players, namely the gaming group I play with, the Second Saturday Scrummers. I am signed up to run this game at Fall-IN this year, so I appreciated their kind forbearance and patience.  It was a learning experience.  Driver Al Einstein and the Red Masque machine!

Zoo season 2

Noshi really loves this series, and as such we shortly after finishing the first season, we sat down behind our Netflix to go for season 2 of 3.And the war the animals wage on mankind is taking a turn for the worse.PlotAfter we left with the team in danger of the escaped zoo animals, we find out Jackson is for some reason immune to the beast attacks, probably as a result of the bite he suffered in the first season.  The animals now have been mutating to what is called "phase 2" and there have been 7 species identified as the key for the mutations... including a sabretooth cat, thought extinct, but apparently still living on a south american island (and yes, this IS Jurassic Parks Isla Nublar... well, the same island for the shots at least x-D).But what is more, the disease is apparently also spreading to humans, and now the team has to find a way to stop the Noah Objective project.  The loss of human life would proves to be bigger then the estimation projects, and as such General Davies must be stop
