    Impressive card creator. I would like to have more control over what portion of my selected image is in the frame. I'd experiment with cropping my uploaded photo more but I'm using my phone browser.
    This is good enough for now:

    ViscerothSWG got a reaction from Boba Fatt in Products that make tournaments/game nights/traveling with x-wing significantly easier   
    I use one of these I found on Ebay for templates, damage deck, and to store dice.

     
    I use the harbor freight line laser. Straight as an arrow, comes mounted to a removable flat base, and was only $4.
     
    To transport to game night, depending on how much I'm bringing, I've used padded lunch boxes, a roughly 12x9x2 box with magnetic close from ikea, and 12x12x12 padded pizza carrying cases with homemade foam inserts for a faction worth of ships. Along with the standard Plano 1374 carrying the tokens, based, and card binders.

    List composition, deployment, flying, choice of action, etc. There are a lot of variables that could affect your chance of winning. Need more specifics on what/how you flew, as just pasting a list that has beaten that squad won't help.
    But the best advice I can give is:

    Cowboy Bebop: Boardgame Boogie will soon be hitting the shelves. As a fan of the show, I was looking into it and one of the lead designers caught my eye- a guy by the name of Josh Derksen. Anyone else recognize that name? Josh was the creator of Heroes of Aturi Cluster, and now he's making board games (this one and others) of his own, for real, for money! That's pretty cool. Congrats @armoredgear7!!! I'm looking forward to getting another game system of your design onto my shelf, and if CB:BB is even half as good as HotAC, then it will be well worth every penny!

    That's understandable, especially considering I believe you said that you were not into the comics at all. I'm 41, and have been an avid comics reader since my early teens, I stopped collecting a few years before Iron Man came out, as being a family man meant funds had to be re-appropriated elsewhere. But I still have a connection to the characters and the stories. 
    Iron Man was widely seen by comic fans as a great adaptation of the material, compared to previous attempts to adapt comics to the screen, many failed to grab the feeling that comic fans were looking for. The MCU was a series of hits with fans, with a couple stumbles, but overall they kept to the feeling that fans were looking for from the characters and the growing interconnected universe.
    The Infinity Gauntlet series was originally written in 1991, and was a major comic event back in the prime of my comic reading days, I was probably around 13-14 at the time. Realizing early on what the background story that was slowly burning was exciting and getting to see the payoff with awesome special effects and good actors was a huge thing for me, but I have many years of being a fan. Infinity War and Endgame were the big stories and heroes of my childhood adapted pretty faithfully to the bigscreen.
    If you didn't have that same kind of emotional connection to the comic stories, its understandable that there would not have been the same emotional connection to the movie characters and the story like others might have.  As well, there is nothing that says you need to like all pop culture, there is no need to try to like them. I mean, I don't like Dr. Who, but it has a huge fanbase and I don't begrudge them enjoying something I don't.

    Endgame wont have nearly half the emotional payoff if you've not invested time (and enjoyed) the rest of the MCU.  Its a great film in its own right but so much of the enjoyment comes from the callbacks to the other movies and wrapping up several significant characters' arcs.

    You don't need to have watched all of the other movies to see Endgame, you just get more from it if you have.
    I did see an interview with the Russo brothers that stated as far as they were concerned the bare-minimum you should see to follow most of it is:
    Avengers (effectively introduces the main team)
    Captain America: The Winter Soldier (introduces Falcon and Bucky, and explains what happens to SHIELD)
    Avengers: Age of Ultron (introduces Scarlet Witch, Vision and Clint's family, plus the vision Tony speaks about in Endgame)
    Captain America: Civil War (introduces Black Panther, Spider Man and Ant Man, plus explains what state the Avengers are in at the start of Infinity War and a brief glimpse of Wakanda)
    Avengers: Infinity War (introduces Dr Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy and sets the scene for Endgame)

    You could rent Infinity War and then roll into watching Endgame if you want to. Just have to accept that there will be a lot of moments things that are not fully explained. I did mention there may be a wiki or summary online somewhere you can read up on. I'm just not aware of it. Maybe some Google-Fu may help, but will need to be careful of spoilers. 
    Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame are not typical movies in that they are literally the culmination of a decade worth of films leading up to this event. Its like, you could watch Season 8 of Game of Thrones without watching any of the seasons or books, but you're going to be missing a lot of the nuance and reasons for why characters are the way they are and understanding settings and events building to the final season.

    The unfortunate thing I can’t get out of my head is all the people who were dusted while on airplanes, or traveling at high speed, or whatever. Yes, everyone gets brought back, but you get brought back at 30,000 feet where an airplane was 5 years ago. Have a nice trip.

    The conclusions to Tony and Cap's story arcs was perfect.  The selfish playboy delivers the ultimate sacrifice, after finally achieving the life he'd always wanted; and the man who always sacrificed everything for others finally learnt to do something for himself.
    And man, that 'Avengers Assemble' bit.  Just epic.  I'll hand it to the Russos; they know how to transfer those epic splash pages from comics onto the big screen effectively.
    Also liked the very ST:6 touch in the credits with the main casts' signatures.

    Saw it the other day, thought it was great and tied up everything about as well as we could have hoped for, although I feel Infinity War was probably a fraction better.  Maybe need to see it again to be sure.  Will be interesting to find out in time what was cut out to keep down the runtime.
    Three unanswered questions I have after seeing it:
    1) Did Wong get his Tuna Melt?
    2) Did Stark remember to invite Wong to his wedding?
    3) Why is Gamora?

    Must lead a sad life to make fun of me for losing a match I had 0% chance of winning (he had double my g12s and zetas, as well as having many elite toons I don't like both revans, malak, and traya).
    Only funny thing is because he went overkill on defense he can't fully clear my squads.
