Holiday Gaming part 2 - Pulp Alley

I'm planning on running a two part Pulp Alley campaign on New Year's Eve and having finished Friday's Arc of Fire game early, we decided to get in a practice session.

We used a couple of Leagues (as Pulp Alley forces are called) I've put together from figures given to me by Alan Slater.  Richard used the Cybermen and Andy the crew of the Heart of Gold from the TV series of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Not many pics of this game, I'm afraid.  Pulp Alley moves so fast that it's easy to forget to take photos as you go along.

The Cybermen enter the main room and check out the mysterious
piece of machinery
whilst Zaphod Beeblebrox investigates the
significance of the bronze scarab beetle.
What idiot left a fire burning in the doorway?  Never mind, Arthur and
Ford have managed to get past it.
I was very impressed with how the Cybermen functioned as relatively slow-moving but powerful fighters.  They were also nearly invulnerable to attack; just as they should be.

Zaphod's in trouble - thank goodness for those peril-sensitive sunglasses!
In the end, though, the faster moving and more numerous humans (if Zaphod and Ford meet that description) managed to achieve more of the Plot Points and so won the game (by 5 victory points to 2 if it matters).

Nicely done, love the "terrain"...

Thanks, Phil. It's proven to be a very useful set of terrain.

Hi Richard,

Looks like some top quality gaming over the New Year. Are you still coming on Sunday? I plan to be there about 10am as I need to get back for work at 3pm.
