Mission 051: Blockade Runner

Thanks to our respondents from last month’s mission! You can check out their responses here:

This month’s mission is pretty straightforward. The fine folks over at A Tale of Miniatures and Dice asked me to write a mission for the upcoming Operation Hungry Walrus narrative campaign they’re going to run. You can check it out here:

Operation Hungry Walrus

I jumped at this opportunity, because I’m getting pretty tired of all the same ITS missions, even if they’re a reskinned as the Direct Action missions in ITS14. Here’s what I came up with:

Blockade Runner

This month’s mission is to help me playtest the mission! The Amphibious Assault rule is for the narrative campaign, so feel free to ignore it if you want a more competitive game. The reason why I have people choose the side for that rule is to allow for special table setups like a dockyards table or something with an obvious side to assault from the sea.

If you like this, please let me know. I’m planning on writing a few more missions and releasing a mission pack similar to what the Infinity Global League folks are doing to just offer some additional experiences for people who are also a little tired of bog standard ITS.

The Mission

  1. Make a list for the Blockade Runner mission!
  2. Play a game of Blockade Runner using that list! You don’t have to use the Amphibious Assault rule if you don’t want to.
  3. Write in with your experience for the chance to win fabulous prizes!
