X-Com testing

I'm uploading a few pictures showing some action of my first X-com game testing. The six men team was slaughtered by the Greys.
I'm testing two things: sci-fi generic combat mechanic rules that I called Zap or Glory (ZOG) and X-Com campaign to be played with any ruleset. Many things need to be fixed though, especially in activation and combat mechanics. So far I just have a few pages draft in Spanish but it is taking shape. If I finally get something then I will translate them into English.

  1. Looks like lots of fun. Enjoy the rules designing. IMHO, making one's own rules set for gaming is a most satisfying journey. Looking forward to when you can say, "I did it! And they work really good!"

    1. For me one important part in this hobby is tinkering with the rules and even designing new ones. I enjoy a lot doing this and I have done quite a few drafts in the past, so this is not the first time.
      Actually, I even published two rulesets for THW.
      I hope to get this to a good conclusion by next summer. Time will tell.

    1. Thanks for your comment Jacob but don't hold your breath. Like I said before, I don't think I'll have time for the hobby until Summer.
      Cheers,

  5. I borrowed the title from an illustration in a Laserburn supplement :)
    I'll be posting my progress here but I don't know when I have time for it :(
    Cheers,

  6. You lost the whole team? That sounds like most of my games of X-Com, your rules are probably spot on!

    1. Well, they were conscripts and the aliens carried plasma weapons, but the thing that killed them all was that all the aliens come up so soon. They need to appear more gradually so the soldiers can deal with them on equal terms. This have been aready corrected so I hope they will do better in the next game :)
