X-WING "Courier Escort" game report
My wife and I decided to play a 75 point escort mission. The Rebel goal was to escort a Y-wing courier off the far corner of the sector. The Imperial goals was to stop them. My wife played the Rebels and I played the Imperials.
The Imperial force consisted of:
Two TIE Fighters from Black Squadron
One TIE Interceptor from Alpha Squadron
Maarek Stele in a TIE Advanced with "Swarm Tactics"
The Rebel force consisted of:
Two X-wing Starfighters from Red Squadron. Red 2 had R5-K6 astromech droid and Red 3 had R2-F2.
One Y-wing Starfighter from Gold squadron with an Ion Canon Turret and R2 Astromech.
This game ran very smoothly and all the ships preformed as expected. The Rebel ships were hard to damage with their shields while the imperials were weaker but highly maneuverable and evasive. The Imperials scored a lot of critical hits that only served to weaken the Rebel shields. We played this game in just a couple of hours and I had only played one session of the game if that gives you any indication of how simple the rules are and yet they did not seem all that simplistic.
