My wife and I stumbled through our first game. The first few turns were awkward as I was trying to grasp the game concepts, but it sped up once we got the hang of it. I was Jedi, she was Sith. I thought it was a really tight game. At first I thought that she was going to crush me since initially she had the dark side with her. However, once I committed Obi-wan to the force I was able to slow the game in my favor. The game shifted to my favor once I had obi wan, a light side apprentice, and the cruiser redemption attack the heart of the empire causing 5 damage. I would have won the next turn with the same attackers if it was not for the fact that I lost the edge battle and she got the edge (we both cancelled, but because she was the defender she won). Since most of the blast icons I had were edge dependent it did not work (Even luke joined the fight at this point). She won the next turn as she took her second objective with the Emperor, a probe droid, and a night sister and pushed the death star dial to 12.
Good game, keep up the good work!
