The third and final game to round out the night at the Daffodil 11 house was Star Wars Epic Duels. Curt had left so Rick, Nick S., and Matthew took on the roles of Jedi fighting to the death. We played with a varient allowing all of a players' units to move on a green die roll with total movement equalling the rolled number.
Random selection resulted in Nick S. getting Obi Wan, Rick getting Anakin, and Matthew with Count Dooku. Dooku quickly found himself down a Battle Droid and retreated to get some cards. Obi Wan chased after him and did considerable damage with hit and run tactics. Anakin got a hit on his teacher and the two faced off while Dooku hung back, regaining some strength. Dooku's remaining battle droid fell but Dooku was feeling adequately powerful enough and chased down Obi Wan. Anakin joined the fray, destroying Obi Wan's clone trooper, however he then shifted his attention to Dooku, eliminating him from the game.
Obi Wan still had a considerable amount of health remaining, but lacked cards due to having split his attacks and defenses between two opponents. Anakin had only two health points remaining, but a hand full of cards. Obi Wan backed off to buy time as he regained strength, deflecting Anakin's pressing attacks. Obi Wan finally mustered up an attack of his own but it was immediately repelled by his young pupil and the killing blow quickly followed, leaving Anakin and his lover as the survivors.
