The Awful Green Things From Outer Space
I remember thinking about the game a lot as a kid. I imagined what it would be like, and even fashioned a Star Frontiers adventure after my impressions. It wasn't like I ever hoped to own it - or even play it. West Texas just really wasn't awash in 'gaming product,' even though I knew Steve Jackson was sitting in Austin being raided daily by the FBI for committing bizarre Illuminati hacking conspiracies. Or whatever the hell that was about. So, it was just a pipe dream.
Then I was holding it in my hands.
Steve Jackson got more of my money yesterday. He's never let me down - but - well - I know he does produce lemons and was worried. I still have no idea. The boy didn't look too impressed, so I haven't got to take it out for a spin yet. But I'm ready. Look at the photo! I'm ready, dammit! :)
(Pewter raptors and skeleton army not included - I was just getting ready for THE RAPTURE.)
