STAR WARS ARMADA - COULD BE - FULLY OPERATIONAL!
Thanks Ozy for a great day on Saturday and thanks Mark for putting such a tremendous fleet together for me. It's a fun game system with ready to roll models that is quick and straight forward to play. I can't help feeling that the big ships backed up with some cards are unbeatable and my worry is that once you've got the winning formulae, that's it, until someone comes up with another expensive rules re-write.
However, it got me thinking about an operational game approach. Each table could reflect our WW2 tables; rivers become asteroid belts, towns become planets with ion cannon and requiring ground assault etc. If you don't secure your line of supply you do not fight at full capacity. I'm sure we could think up loads of ideas.
However, it would cost! We would need 8 more space boards (or Marks dirty blankets) and a tonne more ships. That would be up to Mark, Russ and Ozy - but I would play it!
