Over the weekend I was nearly knocked off my chair as my son approached me for a game of X-Wing. This is the first game we've had together in second edition and was a welcome change from him just wanting to play technology.
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.
With the first game done and dusted, Todd and I quickly set-up our forces and went at it again. There was some minor changes with fleets but much remained unchanged.
