Saturday 29th April: Star Wars Rebellion   Leave a comment

Rebels Darryl and Alex took on Phil and Mike’s Imperials.  An early attack near Coruscant from a neutral planet really surprised the Imperials causing Chaos.  A surprise space attack from Ozell caught the rebel fleet and took it out recapturing the planet too but Ozell went all out and lost his Star Destroyer as a result.

The Imperials built up some strong fleets and soon had a rough idea where the Rebels weren’t on the western map but struggled to gain ground, hold planets against rebellions and win ground battles. Consequently they lacked ground troops.  Their dice rolls in combat consisted mainly of blanks (see image).

Imperials once again captured and then carbonited the Rebel Admiral (see image) until he was rescued by Jedi Luke much later (forgetting that they could have captured Luke with Vader’s Special as a result).  The Death Star stumbled on the rebel base at Kessel and then blew up Nal Hutta but lacked ground forces and was out of supply.

Finally the Imperials narrowed it down to just a few planets but chose the wrong two to assault with just a couple of turns remaining.  An all out assault with remaining nearby troops plus Death Star on the Rebel base could possibly have worked in the ensuing turns.  However it was not guaranteed and it was very late and so the Rebels certainly deserved the Victory they were awarded.
