First X Wing game
Played 4 games on Wednesday against Chris and won 3. I am therefore naturally biased and think it is a wonderful game. We didn't use the target lock rules, and we got the overlap rules wrong. On reading the rules again I realised we'd allowed overlapped fighters to target each other, which they can't. They can still fire, but not at the fighter they are touching. Take my winners bias out of the equation and the game played well. It's a game of spatial awareness and guessing where you opponent will move to. As we only played basic games to get familiar with the rules, we didn't get in to the subtleties of building a force with weapon combinations and skills. I'm looking forward to my next game.
