    Intensive Fire in Defensive Fire

    Situation has come up in a game of mine (HI Jim): Panther fires MA in Defensive Fire Phase (not MPh) and is marked with a Final Fire marker. Said panther wants to rotate his turret and fire MA on another target 2 or more hexes away using intensive fire. Is this a valid shot? Applicable...

    OFFICEFEST, DETROIT MAY 14-15

    Officefest accomodations Scott, There are several hotels/motels nearby, but usually there is room on the floor for a few of sleeping bags. I highly recommend this event. The price is generally right and the ASL is good. Dave
