These Star Wars space combat games seem very popular at the moment. The little fighter based one doesn't appeal as much as the larger 'Armada' fleet action game. I played a game of this with Mike at the club on Sunday. About 300 points I think it was. I had a Imperial Star Destroyer, Victory Star Destroyer, and for fighter squadrons - 3 Tie Fighters, 2 Tie Interceptors and 2 Tie Bombers. Mike had a Mon Calamari Cruiser, Corellian Corvette, and Nebulon B frigate, and for fighter squadrons 3 X-wings and 2 Y-wings.
I charged straight at the Mon Calamari cruiser and directed all my fire at it.
I actually ended up ramming and we both took a point of hull damage.
And then in another round of fire the Mon Calamari Cruiser was no more! The Rebel fighters weren't having a good time of it either and they were all destroyed!
Turn 6 and the rebels had lost all their fighters and their main cruiser, the Imperials had only lost a few fighters and shields. Win to Imperials.
The system seems to work ok, but a heck of a lot of tokens, cards etc which I tend to dislike in games. Still I can see it works in a business sense to have all this material to sell, and it adds lots of little details which many collectors will like I imagine. The ship models are nice too, though all the clutter on the bases detracts from the visual aesthetics to my eyes. But if those aspects don't bother you so much, then I'd recommend checking it out.
