  1. I necro'd this thread to give credit to those who contributed. I used material from this thread in my Algbra 2 classes I teach to help explain Binomial Distributions. I will be using XWM dice to do the experiments in my classes. Here's to hoping it goes well. And maybe a few kids get interested in XWM for our school's Wednesday Gaming Club meetings... Thanks all!
  2. Thanks! I will keep this in mind. I get the core set this weekend and cannot wait to try this game. I'm doing Campaign Against Cancer for XWM this weekend as well, so I may have to wait a bit to try out Armada, but I am really excited about trying something new.
  3. To make sure I understand: The command I add to the bottom is the one I reveal after I discard the top one? Turn n+1: That's really neat...Armada is a more strategic and tactical game than I realized. Thanks for your help.
  4. Anime Warhammers and Riflemen? Marauder and Marauder II? This is exciting!
  5. Just getting into Armada. I've grown tired of XWM and the 100/6 format; very few players around me want to try other formats, so I've moved into a new game. So far, I love Armada. However, I have a question about cards that allow you to discard command dials. Why would you want to do this? Specifically, there's an upgrade that lets you discard ALL your dials. Why would you want to do that? Is it because you've royally messed up and need to "redo" your command dial stack? Thanks in advance!
  6. ^^^ This. well said, and pretty much exactly how I feel. I wanted this trilogy until I got it, much like the prequels. Yeesh. I am one sad panda.
  7. I think it's because with a rear arc, FAA is a little bit harder to get to proc. You really, in my opinion/experience, have to fly to intentionally avoid arcs to get the free reposition. Sometimes that's not easy with one firing arc, let alone two.
  8. Woah woah woah woah...Tie Defenders are never boorish.
  9. You are absolutely right, fwiw. I should/do respect everyone's opinion, even if the tone of my post sounds like I don't.
  10. The video posted by the OP...the fact that someone had to justify/explain/defend stuff from the TLJ speaks volumes. Boys, it's still a bad movie. Sorry.
  11. That's the scene in TLJ where I realized the movie was an effing joke.
  12. Yeesh. Still trying to justify this trainwreck?
  13. ^ This. You get what you ask for, even when you ask tacitly.
  14. Where is the video of this game? I want to watch it. I've not watched XWM games since 2014 when I got interested in the game.
  15. dude, it's not your fault. Don't blame yourself. He quit? Yeesh. What a bunch of wusses we've become as a race.
  16. Dear FFG, Can we please have a campaign expansion for XWM? I mean besides the missions that came with some of the expansions. I mean like what Armada got. Sincerely, Scopes.

    To be fair, vague thread titles are vague.
  19. CMs work very well paired with GC and Expertise. HM are always a solid choice, even at 5 points.
  20. Tempest Squadron TIE/A Ion Pulse Missile (or any other <=3 point missile) (or Cluster Missiles and no Mk 2 Upgrade...go GC) Title Accuracy Corrector TIE Mk. 2
  21. What triple Red Squadron list? Sounds interesting.
