Background - An alien ship has landed in a forest near your post. Intelligence has identified the craft as part of the BSS (body-snatching species). Time is crucial as you race to contain a possible disaster. Other marines will join the fray soon, but will it be soon enough?
Setup - 1:6 Alien / Marine Ratio. Aliens get 2 minute headstart. For every one alien, two marines will enter the forest followed by reinforcements every 15 seconds thereafter. If an alien is hit, he is off the field. If a marine is hit, he will put his marker in the air and head to the pre-determined morphing point, where he will be reinserted as an alien. Marines may not fire on the changing marine while he is in transit, so long as his marker is in the air. The game is finished when either all aliens are dead, or the marines have all become aliens.
Background - The year is 1836 and General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna is at your door. You can die a hero, or walk a legend. Protect the fort at all costs.

-Bounty Hunter- (Submitted by David)
Background - Here it is! The scenario that you've all been waiting for has finally arrived. You take the role of one of the galaxies most deadly bounty Hunters. Normally you only take specific contracts for customers who want a custom job and are willing to pay a premium price for an expertís services. Today the situation has changed. A general bounty has been offered that is higher than any other 4 jobs combined, and your services donít come cheap. Every bounty hunter in the galaxy will be gunning for the same target. This begs the question, should you go it alone? Or risk taking a partner? A partner would increase your chances of surviving rivals and collecting the head of your target. On the other hand how far can you trust anybody? Will you and your partner collect the bounty only for you to be betrayed at the last moment? Or perhaps your partner will suffer an unfortunate accident? (All surviving members who bring in proof of snuffing out the target will be added to a list of top ranked bounty hunters!)?
Setup - One target is chosen by luck of the draw and puts on an armband. Bounty hunters then have the option of going out in pairs or going solo. Those wishing to get a partner draw cards and matching cards become partners. Hope you get someone you can trust. >=) The target goes out onto the opposite end of the field. The hunters all enter through separate points of the field in search of the target. From here on it is all against all. The person who brings the targets armband out through the designated exit wins. In the case that it is the target him/herself, he/she gets away clean and gets put on the more prestigious (though not as prestigious as the Alamo list) escape artist list. (You must have at least 3 separate interests tracking you to become an escape artist.)

Background - The year is 1965 and you're 8,000 feet above Vietnam. Without warning, anti-aircraft fire bursts in the air in front of you, following by more explosions and your plane shutters. Glancing over your shoulder, you watch in horror as your right wing disintegrates before your eyes. Quickly, you pull the eject lever and are flung violently from the plummeting aircraft. Shortly thereafter, your parachute opens and you float down to earth. Quickly, you transmit your approximate coordinates to HQ, and pray your Marines will find you before the enemy VC do.
Setup - 3:4 VC / Marine Ratio + Pilot. Pilot gets two minute headstart and may carry radio if available. VC enter next followed by Marines at a time determined by a die. Rolling a one allows the Marines to enter at the same time as VC but at a different entry point (Pilot will not know this). Otherwise, Marine delay is determined by roll x 5 seconds. For example, if a three is rolled, the Marines will enter 15 seconds after the VC. The game is over when a) the Pilot is hit, b) the Marines are all out, or c) all VC have been eliminated.
