Star Wars Rebellion: Saturday 22 July   Leave a comment

An Epic Game:  report to follow.

DARRYL and Alex played as the Empire against Phil and Mike as the Rebels. The game started oddly with the best planets already under imperial control and a big gap near to Mon Calamari where they had little influence. The rebels took a long time to find Luke but he came out on the last draw. During that time they amassed quite a good fleet but their Diplomat Leader got captured. See the picture below with the ring. She then got carbonited. Nevertheless their were quite a few systems loyal to the rebels and they gained vp for that.

The game was memorable for the moment when Luke armed with the Death Star plans led the fleet against the Death Star. They successfully destroyed it but lost their calamari cruiser in the process. More vp pushed on the rebels cause. The imperials did not seem to care and soon had a big fleet headed from all angles towards the secret base at Kessel. However it had taken them just as long as they had remaining to get there and of course before they could arrive the rebels were able to relocate the base back mon calamari where their fleet could fend off the rebels just long enough. Thus a victory was awarded to the rebels on the basis that time had run out for the imperials. Darryl used his new imperial Star map iPad app which worked well in remembering which planets had been searched or eliminated from the search for the rebel base entirely.
