A reprint of an older review from when Battletech arrived in the WizKids click-base world. (Anyone who knew about WizKids' founder and the connection to FASA knew that this was inevitable)

It's really sad but I only vaguely remember reviewing this many years ago. I don't at all remember any of the figures nor what happened to them. :(

When I first saw this I thought "Oh cool, who wrote this piece?"  :2funny:

You are the Reiner Knizia of game reviews!

Good review, BC (even if you don't remember writing it ;) ). 

I really wish we'd had those combat dials "back in the day".  I love Battletech/Mechwarrior, but man, keeping track of all the numbers in combat was a real PITA.
