Had a big day of X-Wing with family, brother-inlaws and dad.
First fight was 100pt one vs one but all on the board at once, so it was hectic flying.
I few 4 Tie Advanced. I never even got a chance to shoot my missile. I died quickly to 2 A-wing, Y-Wing and YT-2400.
Then we all started to play the campaign game for X-Wing. I will admit if you have not played it yet, do so. It is awesome the way they set up everything. So it was all 4 of us on Rebel vs Empire. I am flying a standard X-Wing as that is one of the ships you can choose to start with. For those who do play campaign, you know you get XP for successful hit on the enemy, destroy the enemy and bonus points for objectives.
If you die, you roll escape and see what happens, anywhere from nothing happening to losing your highest mod on your ship.
Each round the other players would get 10-15pts of XP, me, maybe 2-3. Which means It will take forever to upgrade my ship, however that did not matter as I died every round. EVERY round, we even changed dice on who rolled against me, did not matter. Example:
Tie bomber (2hull left) shooting main weapon which is 2 dice attack, vs my X-Wing with 2 evade and a focus token. I have no shields and 3 Hull, but should be good as he only has 2 dice.
Rolls crit and hit
I roll 2 blanks
pickup crit card - Direct hit 2 damage
= 3 hull damage and I am dead.
I roll so horrible, every felt bad when they had to roll vs me.
So I figure if I make loaded dice then I might have a chance to win a round, at worst I might just cancel out the loaded part and they roll normal
PS. expanding on the first round, my brother-inlaw had a cool idea. Since we play 4 of us, we have done the free for all, team up. Well this time, we rolled dice and determined who sat where. Then you had to attack the person on your right and only that person. Whoever killed there person first, won with a secondary objective to kill whoever they where suppose to kill. It was a lot of fun ... for them
