River City Heroes

Have over a dozen players with characters in club but i will cap how many sessions I run a week. Mostly doing gang battles till people get hang but did run the giant robot set loose from the first yellow box set intro adventure which was fun. Will run as fill in game at club and try to get more actual villains in now.

Got to run my DnD in space game too which went well with no violence.
