Token Commanders: Firepower and Flexibility

Posted on February 5th, 2016 under , . Posted by

By Patrick J. Doyle

 There is a basic principle that holds true for starship combat games, and that is the importance of concentrating firepower on a single target. Concentration of your firepower requires maneuvering into the right range with the right ships facing the right direction, while simultaneously denying your enemy those same advantages. I will discuss one way to accomplish this goal.

Once we have established the importance of concentrating firepower (i.e. putting dice on target) and how maneuvering can allow you do that, we will drill down and discuss what I will classify as a Token Commander, or a Commander that allows you to issue additional command tokens to your ships. Two of these commanders are Grand Moff Tarkin for the Empire and my personal favorite, Garm Bel Iblis.

I am not attempting to make the case they are “THE BEST” commanders and that you will always win by using them. There is no “auto-win” fleet list or tactic. There is only list building, planning, attention to detail, and improvisation when the plan goes sideways. I am suggesting how you can use this type of commander if it fits your style of play. You will still have to practice with your list and match it with your plan. Admiral Akbar is certainly another good way to put dice on target, but he comes with his own advantages and disadvantages that we can discuss at another time.

Tatooine Tuesdays at the Curio Cavern

Posted on February 2nd, 2016 under , , . Posted by

 By Mitch Reed

Much like the rest of the WWPD crew, I too have been bitten by the Star Wars X-Wing bug. Two weeks ago my wing-man Throck told me about a gaming store in my town, Springfield Virginia,  called the Curio Cavern.  I was surprised that a LGS slipped my attention, especially for the fact that it has been open for 5 years.  On a cold MLK day Throck and I checked out the store and got in a few games of X-Wing. The Curio Cavern also hosts an X-Wing tournament every Tuesday at 6:30PM so I decided to try my luck!

During my first visit I ran into Steve Dodd, one of the regulars at the Cavern who has been playing X-Wing since it has first been released.  Steve has some of the most in-depth knowledge of the game and if you ever get him to give you advice, I would recommend taking it. Much like myself, Steve is a dedicated Imperial player and recommend the core of the list I brought to the first two Tuesday events.

18 Awesome Games to Look Forward to in 2016

Posted on January 28th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

Time was a board game was released, without fanfare, without hype, it simply came to be. But that was back when the tabletop gaming industry was a backyard affair, when the majority of developers worked out of their shed or people would import a game hoping they could find someone to translate the German rules for them.

Now however, gaming has grown, become more mature and with big mergers like that between Asmodee and Fantasy Flight Games is turning into big business. This means that previews, announcements and a sense of anticipation has become the norm. It also means that we get to see the games of 2016 long before they come out.

So we’ve put together a list of some of the most intriguing, interesting and hyped games of 2016.

The LCG System is Just as Broken as Random Booster Packs

The LCG System is Just as Broken as Random Booster Packs 

I don’t usually try to be negative but I wish to make a criticism of the Living Card Game, or LCG, system.  It is something that has been bugging me for some time but discussions all over the internet about the distribution method adopted for T.I.M.E Stories and my recent review of Doomtown Reloaded have brought it to the forefront of my mind. The issue is that I believe the LCG system is just as broken and a cash grab as the traditional collectible card game format, it’s a controversial view but hear me out.
