We've gotten our act together officially and are playing Star Fleet Battles on a regular basis now. Last month after our last game, Bill and I decided that the third Sunday of the month was to be Star Fleet Sunday. Yesterday we got in a wonderful game of Cadet rules SFB. We had four players so we split to two teams. Bill and I took Klingons - he a cruiser and me with two frigates. I wanted to see how the baby F5s performed as escorts, since Mike has a strong preference to fly Kzinti Air and had promised fighters and drone swarms.Mike did take the Kzinti CVE with 4 AS fighters. Ray, who had never played, took the helm of a Fed CA.
I quickly concocted a scenario - two opposing convoys running into each other. Each side got two freighters and had to get them safely off the opposite map edge.
We called the game there - a tie for all practical purposes. We all had a great time. Not being able to simply smash the enemy's warships made the exercise a lot different than we're used to. Looking forward to the next one for sure!
