If there is one thing that gets old gamers excited, it's when a re-release of an old favourite is announced and has the potential to be an amazing product.
FFG recently announced that second edition for X-Wing is inbound in September. That's great news for a system that is aging simply through the sheer amount of card errata and FAQ. The news couldn't have come at a better time.
I was lucky enough to attend a local event hosted at the magic vault over the weekend. This was going to be a great experience to not only to fly my 'Delta Squadron' build, but also to find more players closer to home.
In my last game yesterday, I was happy with my performance for a number of reasons. Firstly, I didn't net list a fleet and actually put some thought into the choices I made and they turned out to be reasonable. Secondly, it included an Interdictor.
My re-match with Todd took place the very next day, which included some minor changes to our fleets to continue to sharpen our blades.
Today my usual sparring partner Todd joined me for another game of Armada. This time however I was running 8 TIE Defender squadrons who were all freshly painted. I'd never been able to get a solid win against Todd's current build and I was even more inspired as I was running an Interdictor.
