So, Team Covenant ran a really cool series on what to think about strategy-wise as you pick a monster and try to master its play style.
31 Days to Mastering Monsterpocalypse

However, their site navigation makes it a little hard to find articles, so I'm going to link my progress in here to make it easier for me (and others) to find them in order.

The Basics
Day 1: Plenty of Foo in this Fighter
Day 2: I, For One, Welcome Our New Alien Overlords
Day 3: Little Green Men
Day 4: Citizens of Innsmouth
Day 5: Xenophobia
Day 6: Invasion of the Building Snatchers
Day 7: Area 51

Hiatus battle report
Day 7.5: vs. Mega Osheroth and Vs. Ultra Zor-Voltis

I welcome y'all to start your own threads in the same vein and add to them as you finish assignments.

Good for you, my friend. I've been noodling around with a similar thought. Seeing more Monpoc content over on Team Covenant makes me happy.

You guys know that this was written 4 years ago right? Team Covenant no longer supports this game.

oh, that must mean the articles are invalid now... ;P

I know it was written 4 years ago because I wrote part one 3 years ago. Doesn't mean I can't revisit the series to pick up where I left off.

Part 3 coming sometime today, hopefully.

I think he was responding to the post referring to seeing more MonPoc content on TC.

TC doesn't support monpoc with official resources, but they still have the old stuff and the ability for players to create new content. TC is blog-driven and community-sourced. The only reason there's not a lot of content up there is because players aren't putting it up (also, TC's wordpress theme doesn't usually display multiple articles by the same person on the splash page at the same time, so there has been some activity, but only from a few players in the last year). Let's change that. Pick a monster and start mastering it.

If you can't play locally to test your list, there's still Vassal. It's a little empty lately but you could arrange games beforehand.

Re: My 31 Days to Mastering Monsterpocalypse

It is a really cool series and it’s great to see that you are undertaking this, Kevin!

Louis, seeing more MonPoc Happenings over at Team Covenant makes me happy too. :-D

I too have been seriously considering undertaking Team Covenant’s 31 Days to Mastering Monsterpocalypse. What’s been keeping me from it is knowing that I seriously lack the time to see it through. Also the few people that I know that played it, their interest had drifted to other games. I’d imagine that undertaking this requires some extensive game-time, right?

I’m also still trying to decide which monster I want to study. I've got it narrowed down to four.

I also love the Mothership! It was the second monster I ever pulled and has always been one of my favorites! I’ll enjoy seeing you explore her strategies!

Battle report is up. I hope to start section 2 this month. Unfortunately, TC dropped their tagging support for monpoc, but I'll keep my stuff on there until there's a reason to switch over to BGG.

Hey Kevin,

Check out MonPoc.net. It has just gone live so is still a work in progress but the folks building it are Monsterpocalypse vets. Forums just went up, the ability to blog was added a couple of days ago. You should put your articles up there. i'm going to start my Leviathron/Tritons one (I really appreciate your insight on the units, something i've struggled with).

We also meet up for Vassal games and these guys run a Vassal tourney ever four months or so.

Hope to see you over there!

registered.

I might be swinging back into monpoc, so i might be heading over there. (we have a large contingent of x-wing players at the LGS who love the idea of monpoc; it just requires that I build a community IRL yet again)
