Admirals Diving Into Their Games

66 Comments

With a bit of rules chatter out of the way we're getting stuck into some proper games now as folks learn about the basic mechanics of their fleet with an introductory scenario.

We'll be chatting with some of the folks we caught up with yesterday and then will find out how their first games went!

Anyone know how long the average game lasts?

Depends on who plays, but not longer than 12 parsecs. 🙂

No that’s the Kettle run Justin has to do.

I played at Essen for about an hour – but I don’t think that’s the average game time, it was a slaugther

Hard to tell game length from you tube videos due to parts being edited out but I’d say 1.5 hours for a 1000 points best guess.

About 90 minutes sounds good. It’s soon over if your getting whooped but enough to get a few games in

I’ve noticed it’s a very killy game. Especially with secondary detonations from dying ships.

Quite like that… and if you think about the average crew number of a UCM ship, it becomes a really sad story.

…nowhere near the bodycount of an average Gundam series, mind you…

True. Gundam is brutal.

“secondary detonations from dying ships”

That needs to be on the game packaging somewhere. I really like the sound of this game.

Those mats look great. No worries about how they show up on camera or photos, even the winter-themed. Looks like it will be a great weekend.

Best chain reaction will be won by whoever gets a cascade reaction on that massive station of Warren’s during the Pearl Harbor game they’re planning. I can’t imagine what that explosion would look like IRL.

Yeah, it’s a fantastic expression. Really hard to capture that sort of moment in a photograph.

Is it me of do the bodies of water on the mats match up with other mats?

Looks like one epic battle across an entire planet… they should house rule some map transitioning.

How many UCM players are there? Seems like every battle has a UCM fleet in it and some are UCM vs UCM…
