First 7TV Game mini AAR

Played my first proper game last night.

Welcome to the sleepy village of 'Cutbanks' where 008 Agent Craig Daniels is following a tip off is trailing a underworld facilitator rumoured to be doping horse's. Little did he know there was going to be a 'chance encounter' with underworld agent and his security staff in the sleepy village.



Chose to play a chance encounter to familiarise myself with the rules again. 3x3 board (well section of dininig room table). Deployment was rolled randomly with the Villainous side deploying in a 1x1 square in the centre and Craig Daniels 008 (Bond thanks for character stat drawn up by Doctor Warlock)  deploying 4" onto the board.

008 Craig Daniels 80 Ratings

Guard Force 63 Ratings
9 Guards (all with pistols, 2 smgs and 1 commander)

Lost track of turns but here is a summary of the action.

Both sides advance some of the guards hearing the sound of car engine proceed to investigate.

008 first shot a guard between the eyes and then charged into melee against another but fluffed his to wound roll.

008 then got pinned down and then a big scrap ensued as more guards gradually arrived and tried to subdue him at one point it was 4 to 1 but 008 took them all out.

Unable to capture 008, the guard commander order the smg guards to fire into the melee between 008 and the last guard, though random allocation both hits ended up hitting 008 and then rolled double 6 to wound.

008 took out the last guard in a heroic surge, flung two knives at the smg guards but missed.

008 won initiative advances towards the remaining 3 guards and takes one out in melee. Is then sprayed with bullets by the last smg guard which miss! But then the guard commanders final shot with his pistol takes 008 down with 6 followed by a 6 to wound.

I really enjoyed and it has geared me up to play a few more games. Can't wait to get my United Radionics guys painted up.

  4. How many times has 007 been shot and appears to be dead? I reckon it's the same with 008. He just APPEARS to be dead. He will return!

  5. Sounds like great fun was had, typically that 008 was killed always the way isn't it!

    1. It was a lot of fun. 7TV is quite fast I played on a 3x3 board but some people play on 2x2's

    2. Cracking Batrep mate. How about in the next game, 008 is not dead but being held by the Underworld Organisation and needs rescuing by a Secret Agency task force ;-)

  14. Shouldn't Bond have some commandos as back up? Or more likely a leggy girl? It looks fantastic, but I'm staying strong and sticking to my EotD project. It's nice to see some of the old citadel card buildings again.

    1. Lol yeah it was learning the rules so I don't try and take many pics or notes as its distracts from learning the rules. I lost track in the end because there was a massive melee that went on for a fair few turns.
