That's right. It's that night again. It's Tuesday. We all know what that means! X-WING!
Well tonight was a small group. Only five of us showed up but hell that's better than none! Thanks to James (pokey and late), Brandon, Nikoli, and Josh for making it out tonight. I didn't get there until 1830 and Josh was already there. This is where the fun begins.
In that corner, we have Josh Holt. Running Palpy on the cow shuttle with a TAP Inquisitor and Soontir Felk (AKA MINI VADER). One of the many itierations of Palp's Assholes / Aces :D. Great list. In THIS CORNER, THE Hawk flown by Jan Ors in the Moldy Crow with her favorite TLT Co-Pilot Nien Nub. Grouped with Keyan Farlander in his B-Wing with lots of Plasma Torps and FCS with his own PTL. Flying next to him? His buddy Gemmer Sojan with a pocket full of Proton Rockets. Both them with upgraded Guidance (Chips) Systems. :D.
First few rounds were slow and dull with everyone slow rolling it and trying to read what each other was going to do. Finally first blood cam eout of Gemmer but he made for a few more rounds. Alas, he was the first to die and then not far behind that, Keyan went down but with somewhat of a fight. Jan finally managed to take out the TAP and was busy trying to drill Palp or Soontir down as she could but sucumbed to death at the hands of Soontir.
This was the by far the longest game of X-Wing I have played. The game lasted almost two solid hours. It was a blast and I am glad I got to play Josh. He is a much better player than I am (of coure most players in the league are better than I am.) However, each game I learn something that I didn't know or consider before. I always learn that my dice hate me and I need to find a way to build a list that doesn't require dice rolling or that lets me just modify the shit out of them :D.
That was this week. Remember, we'll be at Mulligan's this week from Noon to five. See you there!
