X wing solo (not Solo) game

Postby MoodyGit » Mon Jun 22, 2020 7:46 pm

I thought I'd give the X-wing solo rules a go. This would be my second gaming experience in the lockdown and I'm currently won 0, lost 1!

Before we start, excuses.

As previously mentioned I do not have enough of the new 2.0 stuff(dials and cards) to run a double faction game and as it seems not enough low level stuff (only two torrents) to do a inter-faction battle either.
I have therefore decided to use 2.0 rules but with 1.0 dials and ship cards. This involves my only two rebel ships as the player set, and my larger Empire will be the AI.

Rules seem to be quite straightforward, a few charts and things to bounce between so random set up is as follows

Working through the first few rounds carefully to make sure I don't miss anything and its going well. Turn four is when the second wave appears,

And things are going well,

Turn 7 is when the next wave appears but I'm worried I'll get there in one piece

Goodbye to my I4 ship

My wing-man doesn't seem to be pleased with my decisions,

Well he's on his own now.....

Turn 7 and here they come

It's a tense final dog fight and the mechanics are working very well. I'm impressed, especially when two enemies manage to barrel roll out of my fire arc in the same turn!

Its not to be and eventually I succumb to the lowly (well he has a higher I than me) Tie Fighter.

All in all I thought the AI mechanics ran very well, I'm going to laminate the move charts onto one sheet for ease of use along with the behaviours.
Next up the two N-1's might get a run out.

I see you dice rolling hasn't improved in lockdown then... :D

Your wing-man's look says it all. :lol:

I could argue my red dice were on fire, but as in all solo games they all seem to favour the AI. Take Mike and your Negan games for example.

His look was priceless.
