Were there really no games last Wednesday?

We stayed in Agawam and played Silver Tower, planning to go to the store this Wednesday.

Patrick and I played a game and he defeated me soundly again. I believe that was the only game on Wed... not a lot of people at the store.

I was going to but I got drawn in to a Blood Bowl double header instead and, well, priorities man! These lizards and vamps aren't going to play themselves!

Got a game in against Kinne this morning. Looked like I made a huge mistake when I took an interceptor-heavy list and it turned out he took no squadrons, but my interceptors turned out to be pretty good at ship hunting and I routed him by about 180 VPs.

Got my second game in, in a rematch against the traitorous Moff Kuzmeski. ISD Butt Pillager made a triumphant return, bringing its advanced armaments to bear against a duo of Gladiator class starships.

So Steve will tell you it was "dice" or "his opponent's list", but he's just trying to cover the fact that he got his face stomped off.

Or that I blew up one ship and ran away. But we'll call it face stomping.

Confirming my (last week) game against Paul as a victory, and another (this week) game against Paul as a defeat. Indeed Darth Moffmalthus is powerful, as the Emperor has foreseen. He has learned well the power of making me tilt into his ship so hard I drove off the board like a noob. Sadly, my 300 point experiment in making Commander Vader work is a 1-1 inconclusive split. Back to the lab with that one.
