    FFG ARMADA Article: Interview online!!!

    Apps are only good for as long as they decide to support them. Once your favorite game starts slipping in popularity, that app will become unsupported. My Armada collection isn’t cheap, I am not going to stop playing the game when it stops getting supported. It is not suddenly going to become a bad game because FFG doesn’t produce it any longer. So let me stick with physical products for my physical games and electronic products for my electronic games. I don’t buy into mixed media games. I have never seen one maintain longevity.

    A gift that keeps on giving.

    Yes, I was really responding to the “star destroyer” part of the sentence.

    Thanks FFG - no really

    If they never released another thing, I will be happily playing this for years.

    He already has one: a Victory.
  5. Think of kinetic energy as the limit of your ship’s speed. At the start of your turn, you can adjust it plus/minus your acceleration. Then your maneuvers must equal your new kinetic energy. Changing altitudes is making a speed three maneuver. You can shoot at ships within one altitude band of you, and you use a shorter range ruler to determine shooting range band (there is no short range on that ruler, only medium and long). The movement system makes the game.
  6. I’m willing to bet most people don’t play in tournaments.
  7. So the objectives worked fine with a 25% point deficiency. The point still stands.
  8. Did the objectives get rebalanced when the “standard” game size increased by 34% with the ISD release? At this point, we are free to play at any points level we want to. Try it and see for yourself.
  9. Have you looked at A Call to Arms: Star Fleet? http://www.starfleetgames.com/Call-To-Arms.shtml http://www.starfleetgames.com/Starline 2500.shtml

    Women in the Game, a Poll of Sorts

    My wife has played, but only occasionally.

    Um, fast sales...

    Would you have preferred if they didn't offer to order it?

    Clone Wars?

    I've never expected science in my Star Wars. If I did, I would have been disappointed since 1977. It's pure blaster fantasy.

    Board Games and Hobbies in the News

    Ameritrash was coined by fans of the genre, perhaps by Michael Barnes (creator of Fortress Ameritrash), on BGG when they felt that the site was being dominated by Euros. It is a divisive term, but not in the way you present it. Games are games and plenty of us can enjoy playing a wide spectrum. But cliques exist no matter where you go or what you do. There are always going to be gatekeepers. Best to avoid them and do what you enjoy, nobody needs to live up to someone else's idea of what a true fan is.

    The GR-75 in combat

    They had the models, they were expensive to make, they were put to good use in beefing up the fleets for the movies.

    Is The Rebels TV Series Worth Watching?

    I watch CW streaming on and off. It's a kids show, but SW is meant for family entertainment. CW is great in that it actually makes the Anakin/Obi-Won relationship seem good. The show itself tackles issues such as what it means to be human and valuing life, conflicting morality that people face, how decisions are made and their consequences. It harkens back to when I was a kid watching shows like He-Man, where there were lessons in those episodes and it wasn't just something to keep your kids quiet.
