I just wanted to share this. I was talking to my friend on the phone a few nights ago. On a whim we decided to play X-Wing. We used the heX-Wing variant for obvious reasons.
We tried playing using Vassal, but we wanted the miniatures! Using hexes is the only way to do this because templates over the phone just doesn't work. I know, we tried.
The game was nothing fancy. Just a standard 100 point encounter with no asteroids. We also used our new hex-wing play mats we printed up. They came out very nice and the hex coordinates work great! I played the Rebels he took Empire. The Empire was victorious that night. Pictures coming.
Because it worked so well, there will be more phone-hex.
