Today I played a Pulp Alley game with my gi joe miniatures. I was the Cobra player while my friend used Gi Joes.

Background:
"An abandoned military radar outpost received some precious informations from a hijacked satellite, causing a race between G.I. Joe and Cobra to gain possession of it."

Major plot point: the Radar Tower
Minor plot points: petrol deposit, bunker, two anti-tank obstacles.
NOTE: the anti-tank obstacles obstruct the passage to the vehicles, until the challenge is won.

Nice report! It is great to see G.I. Joe in action against Cobra. But what will happen now? Surely the information Cobra Commander received was plans for an all new Weather Dominator!!  ;D

Fantastic report! It is always great to see your miniatures in action. I answered the questions on the Pulp Alley forum and I'll share them here as well ---

1. Firing a gun at a vehicle is an unopposed roll.

2. Firing a gun at a character is resolved as a Burst. Guns cannot target (direct fire) an individual character unless it has the Deathray modification.  :D

3.  If a gun has a full crew then it can normally fire every turn. It a gun does not have a full crew, then it will need to spend an activation to ready the gun - then it can be fired on a subsequent turn. So it looks something like this --

Full Crew = May normally fire once per turn.
Less Than Full Crew = May normally fire once every other turn.

Tip -- When a gun crew does not have a target, spend their activation making their gun ready. Even if the crew suffers casualties, they will still be able to fire in their next activation.

Thanks. I misunderstood that the crew must always prepare their gun to fire, now it is clear that the "ready" order is an action to use only when the minimum number of crew are not present.
I'm planning to include more vehicles for my G.I. Joe PA games ;)

Amazing. Made me want to re-read my GI Joe comics, which I haven't touched in 20+ years.
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

Thanks  :) Just about a week ago I played (as Game Master) a role playing game "one shot" ispired by the first comic book "Operation: Lady Doomsday" ;)
My two players used the Clutch and Flash characters, using the VAMP Jeep and HAL cannon, while the other joes were Non player characters as the COBRAs.  :D
