The Take One Leave One Library at Council


Hello SFB Grognards,

John Rigley and I had the distinct pleasure of hosting dinner for seven out-of-town guests who arrived today so they can start playing SFB as soon as the doors open for Council of Five Nations XL tomorrow at 10:00 AM.  Many thanks to Dr Dave Zimdars, Sebastian Palozzi, Fred Werenich, Kosta Michalopoulos, Steve McCann, Bill Schoeller and Big Ed Slusarek for trekking in early.


THE TAKE ONE LEAVE ONE LIBRARY

After procrastinating on this task far too long, I've finally completed a full inventory of the SWA's "Take One Leave One" library.  This is a big pile of goodies we have had available at Council for a few years now.  Many thanks to everyone who has donated over the years, but especially Mike Sanchez, Ken Stuart, and Nate Whitchurch, since these three guys donated practically their whole SFB collections to the club.

Our intent is two-fold.

New players who come to Council and show an interest in SFB go home with some free stuff, courtesy of the club and our donors.
Veteran players who are looking for a particular product to fill out their collection can trade for something in our inventory.

There hasn't been that much trading, but we've given away a bunch of stuff to new players over the past several years.

MORE STUFF

If you would like to donate anything, please reply to this post and let us know.  If you would like to trade for something, please let us know.


LOOKING FOR ANYTHING SPECIFIC?

Yes, thank you for asking!

It's kinda funny, but nobody has ever donated any MAPS, even the three guys who handed over their whole collection!  We would love to have a few maps to match with the basic rule sets we've put together for new players.

Also, there is a Captain's Basic Rulebook, but it would be great if we had an Advanced Missions Rulebook to go with it. 

If you have these to donate or trade, we are especially interested.


We're looking forward to another excellent weekend of SFB Patrol tournament action.  Watch the Council thread above for updates.



p.s.  FYI, it takes a long time to sort the counters for a dozen SFB modules.  I think I spent 15-20 hours on this over the past couple of weeks...
