Saturday 4th of February: Star Wars Rebellion.   Leave a comment

Darryl and Alex played the Rebels against Phil and Mike.  Interesting game.  The Rebels were quite successful in creating anarchy and disrupting the supply lines of the Empire.  A notable success being the Rebellion and overthrow in the only Imperial Star Destroyer building system which hampered them for most of the game.  Then when they did build any they were destroyed by missions whilst on the build crew!   Princess Leia proved a great thorn in the side with C3PO aiding her Diplomacy missions especially, but she also did well with insurrections and other mayhem.

Notice how for a long time all the Character Action and subsequent military action revolved around one system.

The Imperials for their part concentrated initially on missions to capture Rebels or build projects.  Thus they held prisoner one general almost all game despite many rescue attempts and they built two Super Star Destroyers in time for the final showdown.  So the Imperials were relatively militaristically weak compared to our other games in terms of Stormtroopers and systems held.  However they did have a fairly strong fleet of super star destroyers on the way to allow them to strike back later.

Using the information from the Prisoner the Imperials were able to destroy the Rebels Secret Death Star Plans and they were reasonably quickly able to identify the Rebel Base using a Long Range Probe.  This forced the Rebels to relocate of course and by then the Imperials had a reasonable idea of where that would be.  So they began moving the death star and the super star destroyers to the new base straight away.  The Imperials then caught the Rebel Fleet in a Trap using a single troop transport as a decoy and then trapping them with the No retreat action card.

With time running out for the evening the final assault could not happen but with no fleet to stop the Imperials and the Death Star on its way armed with a superlaser ready as well it looked very bad for the Rebels indeed.  So a Victory was awarded to the Imperials.  This was mainly due to the successful interrogation of the prisoner and the long range probe plus the invincible Super Star Destroyers arriving to smash the very powerful Rebel Fleet.
