The Game.  A real ding-dong fight between 2 well balanced forces.  Interesting it's often the cannon-fodder last man made up from the remaining points that does the most and/or takes the lead.

 Tony took the cocks and the cockatrice flew point.


He quickly advanced.


The race is on, my robot gains the crossroads, my aim is to draw them out.


That's it, keep looking at the robot--.



Oh no!  Here comes Tony's big cock--.


Tony in smug mode as he surveys his cock's advance.




The close combat specialists gather.


In a surprise move, Tony blocks my passage with that cock!


Jaws watches the cockatrice, the cockatrice eyes him, but he's got a bloody big sword.


Which allows Captain Red to knock him down with a long range shot.



"Now, here's what I want you to do"


Oddjob brings up the rear.


Like a 50's B flick the robot goes for the chicken, shoots then grapples it with its vibro-fingers.


Under the punishment of those vibrating hands the cock is down.  Can it rise again or will it succumb?


Clucky finds herself at the front.


Soon joined by Arnie.


Jaws makes a dash for the cockatrice, can he pluck it while its down?


The Captain takes out Arnie!



Jaws dashes (well, as fast as a Sheyang can dash-)  while the Captain and Clucky exchange shots.  Now here's the thing.  Remember police squad?  The shoot out by the rubbish bins?  Lots of shots are echanged, all at close range.  All miss, although Clucky racks up pins.


 Oddjob leaps into position.


A Martian standoff.  Music.  Slit Eyes dart.





Clin-Ton opens up with the monstrous cannon.  The Captain is down, but not out!


The cockatrice gets up and gets out, Jaws goes for Clin-Ton!



That leaves Oddjob and the seriously pinned Clucky.


Amazingly, she wins!




The Dodo wakes up and dashes into the fray.


One thing we've learned from Game of Thrones.  Just because the big bastard is down and hurting, doesn't mean he's unable to do the dirty deed.



Such as putting his pistol down your open beak and blowing your brains out.



 He is back.


So is the big cock!



Clin-Ton takes out Jaws.


Ignoring the Dodo, the Captain dashed to the ship, shoots the cock.


"Oi!  Come back!"


That allows the robot to use his chest-laser to drill its brains out.  They escape to fight another day.


Tony's sheet at the end.  Yellow is pins, red stress.
