Additional reading of the rules has helped, and this game was a much improved experience for one and all. Suffice to say that I did not survive the game (again!), but for once it doesn't matter, as a good time was had by all.
Next week, Chris has offered to run an Old West gunfight (don't forget the buildings Laurie), whilst I shall continue my quest for that elusive first X-Wing kill. Any other offer for games are appreciated.
See yer soon,
