Ended up playing Paul's conversion of the old boardgame Rivets into a table-top miniatures game. The original games was released in the 70's by MicroGames.

With the 30 points of Boppers to start with, I went and split it fairly evenly through the different types. Took all four of the possible Tiny Boppers, and two of the Big Boppers. In terms of programing I just had them matched off against their own type.

Took a bit of a hammering straight off, and forced into an almost immediate retreat. The Red attackers got through to my factory and started chipping away.

The tide then turned quite dramatically. The tactic of reprogramming seemed to work well as the enemy hit the base in distinct waves. With the Red menace seen off the counter-attack began.

With time running out it was declared a draw as the Red base was about to take a large amount of damage from the approaching Blue wave.


  1. Where did you get the 3d minis?

  2. The minis are scratch built by Paul who does a lot of that stuff for his games. Think they're carved from dense polystyrene.

    They seem fairly accurate to the sketches in the rules. He's also done some flyers, but we kept things simple this time as it was my first game.

  3. There are no words to describe the AWESOMENESS here!!
