Wednesday evening is our usual wargame night and I haven't known him to be so animated some time and it was infectious.
We talked through rough and ready mini-campaigns in the style mentioned on Dropship a week or so ago. Missions generated randomly via a homegrown mission generator whilst Russian Mafia and a wild card SF team is in the AO and on call to join in the merry mayhem.
Maff also had the great idea of using a 'MAROON' style random alleyway generator to create back streets alleyways and souks for a lightning speed, in your face game that rolls across the table. Forget tactics if you want a heart stopping, taste the blood in your mouth solo game beyond which car or trash skip to hide behind. Me, I'm a Full Spectrum Warrior, - need at least one mouse hole or alleyway to get behind the bastards and banjo their AK47 tango arses, kind of tabletop commander.
