The only constant in life is change.

After twelve years of playing Battletech at 21st Century Comics and Games, the sun has finally set on our favorite Friday night hangout. 21st Century had survived two economic downturns, a leaky roof, the closing of a sister store in Ann Arbor, and multiple owners. But alas, all good things must eventually come to an end as there was noone found whose shoulders were broad enough to carry the load that Andy had shouldered for the past six years.

So last Friday night, players old and new from across the State said 'goodbye' with a brutal skirmish between Wolf's Dragoons and the Ryuken on the planet Misery. Noone held back as the night was filled with ammo explosions, successful charges and Death-From-Above attacks, and even the ultra-rare 'punch leading to a cockpit critical hit' as we rode the heat curve and pushed our machines to their limits.

Thank you to Andy, Damon, Lon, and all the other owners and employees of 21st Century over the years for giving a bunch of gamers a place to spend their Friday nights. East Lansing is diminished by your departure.

I will not be running any Battletech games until after the Fourth of July holiday weekend when we start up at our new location: Replay Entertainment Exchange. The new game schedule will be announced on July 1st.
