Big turnout, including FOUR newcomers, Eric T (friend of Jeremy), T.J. & Tall Steve (who found us on BGG), and James S (who we met at 10th Planet Saturday).

Some group favorites, the Return of Dominion, and Luke turning off his targeting computer (as usual) were highlights.

When I came in (late), this game had just wrapped up. As I frequently do, I told my staffer (Pat) that she should join a game or two, that you guys don't bite. She said she has more fun watching/listening to you guys, esp "that card game" (which made her blush and giggle). Sooooo, boys? What EXACTLY went on at that table Monday? Hmmmm?

Mark picked this up as an impulse buy and I helped him l earn it late Sunday night. Then Monday, he and Stephen K hunkered down and entered the arena. Plays very much like Summoner Wars (and some Magic:TG), but no randomness of cards/spells. It's all planning and reacting to your opponent.

W - STEPHEN (Beast Master)
L - Mark (Warlock)

Didn't see this played, it might've been the game that caused Miss Pat to giggle (see above)? Silly party game that newcomer Eric brought?
Were "maneuvers" mentioned?

More X-Wing fans tonight, which meant MORE SETS!
Two big dogfights took place, the Empire coming out on top in both (Booo! Hiss!!)*

Was the 1st one a 50-pt each game?
IMPERIALS (W):
- Mauler Mithyl (Sean)
- Winged Gundark (Sean)
- Howlrunner (Greg)
- Black Obsidian Squadron Pilot (Greg)
REBEL SCUM (L):
- X: Garven Drees (T.J.) - destroyed
- Y: Dutch Vander (Steve H) - destroyed
--------------------------------------
2nd game (the LATE-nighter) was 35-pts each:
RUTHLESS IMPERIALS (W):
- Winged Gundark (Steve H)
- Black Squadron Pilot + Determination (Steve H)
- Academy Pilot (Mike McR)
- Black Squadron Pilot + Marksmanship (Mike McR) - destroyed
HEROIC REBELS (L):
- Y: Horton (T.J.) - destroyed
- X: Garvan +R2 (Scott) - destroyed

* as I typed this, I pictured Vader striding down his ship's boarding ramp waving his clutched fists over his head in victory, greeted by a mass of stormtroopers fawning over him like pre-teen Bieber fans.
(ironically, neither team used Vader... That's the Dark Side at work.)
-----------------------------------
This game is out of this world fun!
