This is looking really promising. I have one ship left to paint, my bomber. I'm stoked.

This tournament was a blast. I lost every game I played and it was still fun. I know there are more people in the area that play AI and I hope that you all will show up for the next tournament.

There were 6 people this time. The missions were fun and not terribly one sided. The only scenario that was a blowout was the first bomber mission. The Bomber had damaged engines and lost two speed for the duration of the game. The Bomber had to make it to the opposite side of the table within the 12 round limit.

All of the bombers made it without too much trouble. If this mission comes up again, I'd like to see it be a little more difficult for the Bomber player. I'd also like to see a "drop-off" mission that required the Bomber or Transport ship to land and drop off troops and THEN make it off the table.

All in all, a really good time.
