    I know that there’s a lot of X-Wing players that use it, so it has an x-wing DLC. I haven’t tried it (some players REALLY like playing X-wing a lot), but they do seem to like it.Report

    Two of the resident teenagers and I played a three-way X-Wing battle last night. We all chose squadron pilots, with one teen choosing a single X-Wing (because X-Wings are bad-ass and hard to kill), the other teen choosing two TIE Fighters, and me flying a TIE Advanced and an A-Wing. It was a lot of fun. About 30 minutes into the game, the TIE Fighter player and I agreeing that we needed to knock the X-Wing out of the game, so one of his TIEs knocked his shields down and my A-Wing took him out with a guided missile. And just as luck would have it, my TIE Advanced just happened to have a shot lined up on his remaining TIE, so the alliance lasted just long enough for me to win.

    Tonight is the aforementioned gaming group on Discord, where I’ll get to see if my ideas on map sharing and additional channels for initiative and maps make everything flow better (and also reminds me that I need to charge my bluetooth headset and do some actual prep work!).Report

      Blending factions? That’s heresy. Sounds fun, tho. Before this plague stuff, we played some of the epic games with three-way matches that were pretty fun.
      You pretty much have to throw a lot of fire at x-wings to kill them. Ordinance is usually good.Report
