    Vetnor reacted to RunJerZeeNets in First Game Impressions   
    I played last night for the first time. I did the Capital Wasteland scenario as a solo player and played for about 2 1/2 hours as the Vault Dweller. I included the New California content in the encounter, loot, asset, and enemy token decks.
    The game was a lot of fun. I was on my way to losing though, as I hadn’t advanced either faction relative to each other while holding 3 Freedom agenda cards and 1 Security. I called it quits with both the BoS and Enclave half way through influence level 2.
    But I didn’t care.
    Running through all the side quests, gaining loot, killing mobs, and exploring the board was a lot of fun. I didn’t advance the main quest much as I kept finding fun side things to do. The game would have been more fun with another player reading the encounter cards, so we could laugh at the write ups (I triggered Wacky Wasteland) and be better at not reading the consequences ahead. Trying to keep the decision consequences secret while playing solo is really hard. Also, having a second brain and eyes to ensure all the monsters activated would be helpful as I know I missed a couple of humanoid activations.
    The game strikes me more as a beer and pretzels party game for board gamers than a serious ‘play to win’ game. Just exploring and questing to build a cooperative story seems to work a lot better than trying to win the influence game. 
    It played like a Fallout video game. I felt more freedom to ignore the main quest though and just have fun.
    Thoroughly enjoyed. Will play again.

    And by doing so doesn’t move the Faction token down the track until all agenda cards are drawn and reshuffled.

    Solo was OK. It’s a movie set in the Star Wars universe but at no time did I feel like I was getting  a Star Wars experience. 
    If anything it made me want to watch Firefly again. Captain Renolds did a better Han impersonation.

    I live in Perth and the theatre was almost empty. 
    I don’t love this movie and I don’t hate it. I’ll see it again but I won’t go out of my way to do so. 
    There were some errors that I couldn’t ignore but on a whole it was OK. 
    However if I wanted to see this movie I could have just watched the train robbery and Niska episodes of Firefly. Watching the entire season of Firefly would be a better Solo experience.

    Not a single one of the nerfs affected even a single one of my fleets :-)
    Does this mean I build fleets that don't abuse broken elements in the game?
    It could also mean that because I'm Scottish I don't like to buy multiples and spend too much money on excess ships and just build sensible fleets? 
    The maximum number of flotillas I've ever played has been 2 however I do have 4 x HH, 3 x MC30, 3 x AF and 3 x ISD. All combat ships. 
    If I want activation span I use HH.
