  1. Nope...going there now. Thanks for all the tips
  2. My group is burning through the original campaign and wanted an expansion. They do not play skirmish YET. I gave them a choice between Jabba's and HOTE as both were highly recommended. I wanted small expansions that the kids could use in either campaign...that's why I chose Han and Darth Maul. If C3P0/R2 are no good for us, then should I get a different blister pack...like Ashoka or Palpatine??
  3. Is there a site where you can find print outs of the campaign mats???
  4. Hey folks, I'm back with a few more questions. Although many folks promoted Jabba's Palace, my gamer group decided that they wanted "Heart of the Empire." I have a few extra bucks and was going to add one or two small expansion packs. They really wanted Darth Maul. I was thinking Han Solo and maybe the C3P0 and R2 packs. Are those the best blisters to go along with the Original Campaign and the HOTE Expansion?? Thanks Shaner
  5. I hear ya Fickle and Bonza. I was just thinking of Dash Rendar's ship with the 2 Attack dice primary....at least it has an option to pay a little more for a secondary weapon. I didn't really plan on using a large based ship for just a blocker. Seems a waste. I'm sure someone will find a way to use the Jumpmaster again (doubtful) and folks will cry OP and it will be made entirely useless.
  6. They could have at least given the thing a slot to add a cannon or turret upgrade or something. My Lord, the thing is nearly useless offensively now.
  7. Hey folks. Having a look at the little quadjumper. Trying to figure out how to use it effectively. It's neat and all, but how would it be useful in any competitive situation?? Thanks
  8. Hey folks, is there a link or something with all the basics concerning HotAC? I did a search and was overwhelmed with info, but nothing that was basic start up. I have read about folks having a blast, but I know nothing about it. Off to do a Google Search, but I figure this place was a better spot for information. Thanks
  9. Hey folks. My after school club is loving the core set campaign. There are now so many expansions. I am wondering which set will give me the best bang for my buck. Hoth looks like it adds lots of tiles and models...So does Jabba's palace. Any suggestions? Also, which expansion provides good models for skirmish?? Thanks
  10. Can range between 5 and 15 teenagers. I'd say 14 is the youngest. They are interested in a ton of stuff...Talisman, Zombiecide, Coup, Xwing...etc.
  11. Hmmmm....I wonder if you can run decent games of skirmish using just the core set?? (IA)_
  12. Hi folks, just wondering what folks think of Armada. How does it compare with X-Wing? I run an after school gaming club and we play ALOT of XWing, but the interest is beginning to dwindle. I was looking at other Star Wars games. We tried Imperial Assault, but it just didn't work. Many of the kids just couldn't make the commitment week after week to complete the campaign. So I figured I would check out Armada. Compared to Xwing, is it way more complicated? Is it too unbalanced, where one side basically wins all the time? Do you feel that teenagers could fit in a full game in 2 to 2.5 hours?? Can you get away with the core set, or is it unbalanced? Thanks

  14. Hi...If I have the points...would Stealth Device be a better option that Autothrusters? Wondering if I should be trying to get into Range one with Fenn. Can you/anyone explain the pros/cons of each option (AT vs SD) Thanks
  15. Hmmmm...Interesting. Can you explain Gecko?
