Large X-wing game

So 4 of us decided to throw caution to the wind, and play a large Star Wars X-wing game.

Normally Epic level games are 200 to 300 points per player, on a 6ft x 4ft table space, 1 vs 1.
This is us. We went all in. 400pts per player, 2 vs 2.

It was MANIC, took the whole day, and a bucket load of fun.

We managed 7 turns. Loads of ships blew up. The Huge ships destroyed more by crashing into things that shooting at them.

Huge thanks to Nigel from Battle Bunker Tygervalley for providing venue and consumables. Coffee kept us going.

Turn 0 - start of game deployment:

Turn 1:

 Turn 2:

Turn 3:

Turn 4:

Turn 5:

Turn 6:

Turn 7 - end of game state.

At this point we called it. Imperial victory.

Lessons learnt:
Prepping everything the day before, including ship numbers etc definitely helped.
Plan to have a whole day to do this size game.
The forces were relatively balanced, but next time I suspect the Imperials will take less upgrades and more TIE's. :)
