Steve re Attack Wing - Arm photon torpedoes!

Post  Lee Newton on December 15th 2015, 23:54

I'd love to boldly go - I'm a Trekkie and a Trekker. I don't get the Star Wars fuss - although I do enjoy X-wing. If you go down that Trek I will invest in a couple of ships and give you a game Steve.

Peace and long life...

Interesting link , Lee. It is likely that some players will always prefer one system over the other , but interesting that several people think it worth owning both games. there are some examples of game play on you tube that take you through a few turns of a game .

Currently looking to do some fleets for the Dominion Wars

Currently only have 1 Nebula class federation star ship , but if Santa is good to me should have at least 10 ships by January .

Currently only starting sentences with currently .

Missed the boat? Sleigh? Ship?

Think. I may. have. missed the boat for the basic set. as far as. Santa. is concerned.
I may be able. to. wrangle it. depending on the amount. my dear-mum-sends-me-for-Xmas.

I am currently. Texting. In the style. Of. William-shatter-increase-impulse power-Mr Scott.

if you google star trek attack rules there is a pdf thing you can access which funnily enough features the rules!!!

the ships themselves come with the game tokens , upgrade cards and a scenario.

would need to get movement guages and a bunch of "8"(certainly have more than 6)sided dice to customize

the starter set is probably the cheapest way to get 3 ships too

so would be worth getting eventually

in the meantime you can read the rules so you can pull me up when i get confused about what should be happening

Cool -all over that! Pm me the PDF or the link?

Btw I watched the play through (3 vids by same guy) quite interesting. He confesses to being a Trek fan but still makes some good points. I think Wings of War/Glory and X-wing are quite simple, similar mechanics. It's a sort of evolution of the idea really. This just happens to be the most recent fish to crawl out the pond. A damn fine fish by all accounts. It's what you want at the end of the day. I like WOG because it's simple quick and about WW1. I like STAW because it's Trek yes, but I love the look of the more complex tactics involved - looks like a real head scratcher.
