Hey everyone! I played about 3 games today (I have the base set plus a TIE advanced expansion and 2 players).
One house rule that we quickly adopted and really likes was to have simultaneous movement. We felt like we were having a lot of issues around unintuitive issues the came up by having ships move in turns and having to choose their actions before actually seeing where the other ships ended up (This was how we interpreted the rules…. If we were wrong about this, please let me know!). Even aside from the choosing actions without seeing where people would end up, there were other issues around "crashing" that we struggled with as well.
Anyways, we started playing that all ships moved simultaneously from both factions and THEN we chose actions in order of lowest initiative to highest. We simply said that if there was a possible order to move them that would not result in a "crash", that would be the way we would move.
We liked this much better and I wanted to both share this idea with you all and check to see if our initial interpretation of the rules was correct (again, that each ship would move AND choose their action before the next ship actually moved).
