LAUNCH!

Since object permanence, "piloted giant fighting robots" was one of my favorite genres. A goal for the past 30+ years has been to be able to take what was on the T.V. screen and game it with dice and miniatures. Sad, but there it is.

Many different rules for tabletop mecha games have been discovered and played in that time. Some were great, but were more RPG than wargame. Some were sufficiently complex to scare off new players. Some were just bad. There were others that ignored their source material and were just tall tanks that overheated a lot.

Then, on a safari for free tabletop wargames online, I stumbled across WARP SPAWN GAMES and found a game called "Meka Tac" which, with a little work, did within reason what was asked of it. There's lots of other very cool stuff there, and also on the Yahoo! Group/message board warpspawn.
