I just dust this off and gave it a solo run. Forgot how much fun this game is.

Anybody still plays this?

How often?

Just curious.

PS: game was a lot of fun and hard. Last time I played, I applied the weapon's range for the locust too, and it upped the fun factor for me and my group. Has anyone tried something similar?

I play it occasionally. It is one of the best coop/solitaire games i've had in my collection. Maybe the best.

I dust my copy off once every couple months. It's an awesome game - I am really glad I have a copy. Of course, it helps that I am a big Gears fan too.

I'm taking way too much time painting my minis, but I am looking forward to relearning this one when I'm done and finishing up the remaining scenarios, or just starting over.

meeple Keep playing...

Around here that would count as "being in heavy rotation."!

My son and I dust this off a couple times a year (if I can drag him away from his online gaming)!

Think I managed to get one if the last copies in the UK when I heard about it going OOP. Also managed to get the exspansion card deck - never played.

But come retirement!!

Still one of my favorite games in my collection. Honestly, it has been quite a while since it hit my table. I may actually try to get it played this weekend now that it is in my mind.

In our group it is the go-to game when there's no clear option about what else to play. We all enjoy it a lot. I'd say we play it 3/4 times a year and evry single time it is great fun. My favorite game.

Terrific solo game. One of my favorite Sci-Fi titles, even though I've never played the video game.

Just bought it off someone recently and played for the first time yesterday. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to playing it more.

Absolutely still playing it, continues to be in the top five solo/cooperative games I own. The modular maps, AI deck, etc. all work so well together. A real shame it never got further expanded on, or at the very least a FFG re-theme.

Once or twice a year. Very enjoyable solo. I just took the box out a week ago to get my minis in line for painting. They look really nice quality for painting.

There is no other game like it, when the bad guys start moving on your position taking cover and swarming the halls it feels awesome. Sometimes you have to give up ground to prevent attacks, but at the same time trying to find good positions you can still attack from. A great game and a keeper in my collection.
