  1. Bargain buys for everyone.

    Chaos cards has a sale on, great discounts on games including Twilight Struggle (30), Champions of Midguard (30) and Alchemists (22). I got alchemists
  2. Star Wars!

    Won 4, lost 2, finished 18th out of 60. Really pleased with that! Got an alt art Hera pilot card, and won alt art Vader pilot in the raffle too! I beat a triple J list in one of the most tense matches I've played. So many close calls and clever barrel rolls! Those proton rockets were easily worth the 3 points, they were used in 4 of the 6 matches and always made an impact. Love using palp to fly through an asteroid and guarantee safety Can't wait to get into tie defenders now, imperial vets wasn't legal in this tournament.
  3. Star Wars!

    Ooh I forgot low pilot skill makes EU a bit crap, thanks. I've replaced it with proton rockets on the inq. and ion projector on the lambda. That actually seems pretty awesome to me, I'm gonna try it! My reasoning is that my opponents will be hesitant to move in one either of those ships, and I can be more aggressive with them.
  4. Star Wars!

    Regional tournament this Saturday in Norwich. I have hardly been playing recently so I'm thinking of just flying the Chiraneu/Fel list quoted above. At least I'm familiar with it! I just made this as an alternative, I assume people try to kill palp first so the engine upgrade might give some survivability. What do you think? This or Deci / Fel? TIE Interceptor: •Soontir Fel (35) Stealth Device (3) Autothrusters (2) Royal Guard TIE (0) Push The Limit (3) TIE Adv. Prototype: •The Inquisitor (31) Autothrusters (2) TIE/v1 (1) Push The Limit (3) Lambda-Class Shuttle: Omicron Group Pilot (33) Engine Upgrade (4) •Emperor Palpatine (8) Total: 99/100
  5. What are you playing?

    Good answer. I don't see the appeal (I bloody love adding things in my head), but I appreciate why it works for you and the family. My latest play: Lords of Vegas with my parents this evening, worked really well 3 players, the game is just a fun treat dripping in gambling theme (every choice involves some sort of probability). Dad winning was cool, but the main great thing is that he suffers from AP in most games (even sushi go) but the flow of this hardly stopped, and he didn't keep forgetting the rules!
  6. What are you playing?

    I don't get how it can be quicker? Are you guys just bad at maths? You still have to go through each category announcing what you each got, and typing into an app is much slower than jotting it down.
  7. Bargain buys for everyone.

    10% off at 365 games currently with the code "game" Just got specter ops for £27
  8. It's going far too quick if anything though. Look at the time they gave Arya with the Hound, and Brienne with Hedwig compared to everyone just turning up where they need to be this season. Edit: what Timmo said!
  9. Football thread 2015/16 season.

    Lively atmosphere at carrow road last night, loads of positivity, plenty of people staying for the lap of honour. Had a very nice evening and seeing us score 4 goals was fun! Not too fussed about relegation, the club's finances are in great shape, doubt we'll lose many players, I just really hope Alex Neil stays, he can take us straight back up. He gave a really nice honest interview after the game. It sounds like he's considering leaving at the end though Well done to Sunderland.
  10. Star Wars!

    Not surprising they're cashing in on the new films, Rey sounds fun to fly, preferring to get ships in arc, encouraging clever flying. This is still for sale by the way...
  11. Dark Souls 3! Miyazaki Directing! PRAISE THE SUN!

    Quick question regarding upgrading weapons, if I spend shards to get it to like +3 and then later infuse the weapon, does the weapon start afresh or keep the +3?
  12. Football thread 2015/16 season.

    Wow, little old Norwich had always previously been called too nice, I'm kind of happy you're saying this! I'm not sure we are much dirtier than you lot though, just less clever about it. I also love that you're criticising our young, passionate manager when you have big fucking England manager material Sam, haha. What a crappy mind set you have, take your points and be happy, don't post all this negative shit.
  13. What are you playing?

    Played Secret Hitler at the Norwich board game group yesterday. Wow. It's awesome. It seemed a lot easier for new players to get involved in the arguing/lying than in The Resistance. It was fast and frantic, with webs of lies being spun beautifully. Check it out if you're at all a fan of those social deduction games. The only drawback is that shouting "you're a fucking fascist!" in some circles is a bit awkward. Luckily not in mine A must buy for me when it comes available (kickstarter is shipping soon).
