Blakes 7 on 7TV at the Devon Wargames Group
« on: August 18, 2017, 08:11:48 AM »
One of the games played at this month's meeting of the DWG was this 'rave from the grave' look back at the BBC Sci-Fi show of the late 70's, Blakes 7.



If you would like to read about Blake and Avon's scrap with Supreme Galactic Commander Servalan, then just follow the link to the club blog.

Excellent. Love Blake's 7 AARs, although, I refuse to believe Jenna is dead. It's a clone, probably.

 :o

That got me drooling again!  I of course mean the pic of Jacqueline Pearce lol

The game was not bad either...

Seriously though it looked a lot of fun and great terrain - only thing missing was the disused quarry.

A really enjoyable AAR, all the more so as I recently binge watched the entire collection! Lovely looking setup and the orphanage postscript perfectly represents the Feds.

Are the 7TV rules a relatively quick play?

Thanks for your comments chaps, glad you enjoyed the read.

Grumbledook - yes 7TV are fun and easy set of rules to get your head around with plenty of ideas to help theme the game. I don't play this stuff much but Chas our club member who organised this particular game has run several other similar genre themed games that we have run for others like me who aren't that familiar with them and I found them easy to pick up and fun to play.

Hope that helps
JJ
