"There is no way I will ever actually play one of these goddamn games, I am just painting the models" That is what I said when I started painting some table top gaming minatures with a friend at work. You can probably guess that I did eventually play one of those games and that game was Chronopia. Sitting round on a Sunday afternoon drinking beer (hrm ... reading this over I have noticed many of my gaming experiences involve beer) and playing a table top wargame is a lot of fun. Chronopia had a great, if somewhat depressing, background and an elegant, consistant combat system. Unfortunately later supplements to this game broke the balance that was there in the initial release. Since Target games has gone bust I guess I wont be playing this game again, but I have fond memories of it nevertheless.
