Getting a bit behind with my posts. Two Thursdays ago, Rick hosted a game of X-Wing.
The game follows on from our previous try at X-Wing http://jjs413-thegen.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/X-Wing. , the scenario being an empire attack on the now located rebel base.
This was an enjoyable game. It took a couple of hours, allowing for photos, and shows that we are getting used to the game engine, which is the same for X-Wing and Star Trek: Attack Wing.
The TIE vessels have no shields but have greater agility than the Rebels. They also have the roll ability (a '1' ruler move left or right as an action after movement). The Rebel fighters as well as having shields had droid enhancements that allowed them to remove damage.
Perhaps my best tactic would be to concentrate all the Empire fighters on one Rebel fighter at a time. Worth a try next time.
