We picked the protection mission, where a Red squadron X Wing needed to protect the Senator's shuttle until it got off the board from the evil Empire's Tie Fighters.
|Game 1 set up|
Chris and I played first. I took the X Wing and opted to attack his Ties while my shuttle flew in a straight line to safety. Chris started out attacking my X wing then switched to the shuttle. In the excitement of getting my shuttle home free, I can't remember if he blew up my X wing or if I took out 1 Tie. Either way win for me!
|Game 1 set up from the left.|
|The move we reminded ourselves how target lock worked.|
Chris and Guy played next. Chris had the X wing and Guy the Ties. Guy opted to focus on the shuttle with a minimum of 1 Tie and the other switching focus from Chris's X wing and shuttle. Chris opted to defend the shuttle then go on the attack while the shuttle tried to bob and weave. No Ties were destroyed and the shuttle succumbed before reaching the safety of the board's edge.
|Once learnt it got used. They're the cross markers.|
The final game was myself as the Imperials against Guy. I opted to focus on the shuttle and Guy opted to attack. Lots of fancy flying by everyone. The shuttle didn't bob and weave but chose a diagonal home run making it to safety with 1 armor point left. My Ties were wiped out.
|Game 2 both the Tie and X wing coming close to flying off the play area.|
|Game 2 and the X wing and shuttle start there weaving.|
Overall a great evening, using all the rules this time and everyone getting 2 games in 2 1/2 hours. Guy won the laurels with 2 victories, I next with 1 and Chris with a gallant 0.
