Over lunch today I flipped through my recently acquired BattleTech Master Rules, Revised edition. It looks very similar to the game I played in my youth, with additions from the Clan era and clarifications/refinements of unclear rules from previous editions. Though I haven't given it a thorough read yet, I think using the Master Rules will add to my BattleTech gaming.
It occurred to me tonight that each hex on the Amoeba Wars board could correspond to a Traveller Jump-6 map. Another thought I had was that the space amoebas could be simulated in Starmada as simply another faction with organic equipment. I'm not sure where putting this stuff together gets me.
