  1. X-Wing a Dead Game?

    I see what you did there.
  2. Happy Friday - Let’s fix the tie fighter!

    Swarm Ability a la Armada.
  3. Armada Fleet Designer now Web!

    Is there a rule somewhere that states one cannot add both spinal armament and enhanced armaments to the same ship? The app isn't letting me do that.
  4. Meanwhile in the Real World

    I find it interesting that some on the left insist that the small donations from, say, the NRA (just as an example...) are enough to totally buy the loyalty of Republicans, yet deny that the maximum possible donation from their supporters (COO of Facebook, anyone?) are enough to buy them. Why do they imagine everyone is corruptible but themselves? I find it more likely that they are judging others by their own standards.
  5. Ramming, Overlap and Damage son and I had been playing that wrong until we re-read the RRG. Still, we had one last evening and decided to go ahead and attack. We guessed right. And man, you guys are right about XWM vs. Armada. I really like Armada more that XWM, and I like XWM quite a bit. Armada is a much different game and way more strategic and tactical.
  6. Ramming, Overlap and Damage

    If two ships are touching at the beginning of the round, can they attack each other? Can squadrons attack ships they are touching if there are not engaged with a squadron?
  7. Major Derlin

    With the two weapons upgrade cards shown in the OP...what if the attacker rolls multiple crit results? Would the effects stack (i.e. 1 f/u damage card per result rolled)?
  8. Okay, thanks. I also should specify that I interpret that to mean that if my printed squadron value is 2 (on the ship card), the token + the command (which just activates the ability) makes it possible for me to activate up to 3 squadrons. Is that correct?
  9. Solo A Star Wars Story Premiering at Cannes

    Cannes likes it: I'm out. Cannes pans it: I'll maybe take a chance.
  10. Another question: Can you, in the same round, spend a command dial (say you reveal a "Squadron" command) and then spend a squadron token you've had saved?
  11. Another question: I cannot spend the same defense token twice in the same attack; can I spend a combination of tokens on a single attack? I think that's legal if I am reading the rules correctly.
  12. Played my first two games (ever) of Armada yesterday...what a great game! However, I have a question: How many sets of 3 fighters do I place for each squadron card? I flew Rebels both times last night. As you veterans know, the core set comes with only two Alliance squadron cards. Luke, and generic. Is it a "2 for 1" deal? I thought each ship stand of 3 fighters was itself a squadron.
  13. a quick primer on probability when rolling dice

    So I <ahem> edited my post to reflect the knowledge gained and correct the error.
  14. a quick primer on probability when rolling dice

    Oh, duh. Of course...yeesh. We've been using the formula (nCr)(p^r)(1-p)^(n-r), which is the same as what you have above, but only doing it on a "term by term" basis, if that make sense (vs. your expansions). Interesting side note: We generated Pascal's Triangle yesterday. My students spent a few minutes looking (and finding!) some of the patterns hidden within the array. It was a neat review. Your values are exactly the same as mine for the paints vs. non paints experiment. If I combine the two experiments, the distribution is symmetrical: 4 dice: [0.0039 0.0469 0.2109 0.4219 0.3164 0.3164 0.4219 0.2109 0.0469 0.0039] My classes do the hits vs. misses experiment tomorrow as that's the binomial experiment, but I've enjoyed working on the other numbers. It's been a good review of the maths invovled. Thanks for your help!
  15. a quick primer on probability when rolling dice

    Right, but my work (sorry if it isn't clear) is for 4 dice, paints vs. not paints. I'll try to upload the file again. Not sure why you got that message. Binomial Distributions- 4 XWM Dice.pdf
