|A Rebel "Freighter" with a heck of a lot of firepower!|
While Francis and Dave to a large extent are more LotR fans, I and Sean like Star Wars and so perhaps are more into making the sounds of a TieFighter screeching to the attack. Heck, I am old enough to have seen the original first run of the movie on the screen when I was young(er).
The scenario was a mutual recovery of important capsules of techie stuff left floating in space was the objective and, of course, to blow each other into atoms....
I played the Imperium once again...in this game I will ALWAYS play the Imperium. Luke is a reactionist young bleeping trouble maker really; and is the bad guy regardless how Lucas makes us believe.
Anyway I was gunning for the pup but in the last turn of the game, he (played by Dave) got lucky and was a mere 1/8" within range of my Tie-Fighter with the third capsule in tow after finally chasing it all game , destroyed it leaving this capsule in space. With one captured capsule each, the battle was declared a tie.
For reporting accuracy, yes, Darth Vader was also flying, under the command of Sean, who managed through some "interesting " maneuvers to do very little in the game. Apparently he does not know his right from his left. Oops, note to self : use inner voice as I am now choking for breath against a bulkhead with my feet above the floor....
Yes, Darth, in my usual "anything to do with flying" games I will always get shot down, in my defence I ONLY lost one fighter!
