Here are the pictures from the start of the game.  Pete volunteered to be Primary Attacker.




Events of Turn 1 (DDC@11): The first action of the game ends up getting passed to Pete who is low man on the totem pole.  His attack from his artillery frame fizzles but I get to strike Occam's Spork's Mantis frame for 2 damage with my Black frame.  A Team's Pink frame then hits the Mantis frame for 1 more.  In revenge Occam's Spork's Arty frame hits my Black frame for 2.  Narbey's White frame hits my Purple frame for 1.  A Team's Purple frame unloads on Narbey's White frame for 4!  Narbey's Red frame attacks Occam's Spork's Arty frame for 1 and Narbey's Lime frame also hits it for 3.  Pete finishes out the round with an attack from his Red frame hitting my Purple frame for 2.


Me: 28 points.
A Team: 15 points.
Occam's Spork: 15 points.
Narbey: 15 points.
Pete: 15 points.


Events of Turn 2 (DDC@9): A Team's Orange frame hits Occam's Spork's Mantis frame for 1 damage, the Mantis frame then seizes my Station that I had left undefended.  In retaliation Occam's Spork's Rhino frame hits A Team's Orange frame for 1 damage then seizes her Station.  He then targets Narbey's Lime frame with his Arty frame and does 2 damage.  Narbey's White frame then does 1 damage to A Team's Purple frame.  A Team's Purple frame then proceeds to destroy Occam's Spork's Mantis frame and seize the Station it was defending.  Over in the corner, Narbey's Red frame destroys Occam's Spork's Arty frame.  Unfortunately for Narbey Occam's Spork had already maneuvered his Brawler frame over to keep control of his Station.  My Lime frame then destroys A Team's Purple frame with 2 damage but I can't move close enough to regain the Station.  Left free to his devices at the end of the turn, Pete's Orange frame destroys my Purple frame with 2 damage.  Then his Blue frame destroys my Lime frame with 3 damage.


Narbey: 15 points.
Pete: 15 points.
Occam's Spork: 12 points.
A Team: 12 points.
Me: 7 points.


Events of Turn 3 (DDC@6): Pete's Yellow frame opens up the turn by hitting Narbey's Lime frame for 2 damage.  Occam's Spork's Brawler then tags it for 2 more.  Narbey's White frame then destroys the terrain it was hiding behind in a fit of pique.  Pete's Blue frame proceeds to destroy it with 2 damage.  Occam's Spork's Rhino frame hits A Team's Orange frame for 2 damage which then destroys my Black frame with a 5 point hit.  In the ongoing battle for Occam's Spork's Station, Narbey's Red frame hits Occam's Spork's Brawler for 2.


Pete: 15 points.
Narbey: 12 points.
Occam's Spork: 12 points.
A Team: 12 points.
Me: 0 points.


Events of Turn 4 (DDC@4): A Team's Orange frame opens up the turn by hitting Narbey's Red frame for 1.  Pete swings his forces towards the Station in the center.  His Yellow frame hits A Team's Pink frame for 1, then his Blue frame hits the "Stargate" for 1 damage.


Pete: 15 points.
Narbey: 12 points.
Occam's Spork: 12 points.
A Team: 12 points.
Me: 0 points.


Events of Turn 5 (DDC@2): Narbey's Red frame hits A Team's Pink frame for 1.  Pete's Red frame does the same, then his Blue frame destroys it with 1 damage.  Narbey seizes the Station that A Team lost with his Red frame that had moved beside it.  A Team's Orange frame then hits Pete's Red frame for 1 damage.  Occam's Spork solidifies his position by having his Brawler destroy Narbey's Lime frame with 4 damage, removing the threat to his Station.


Pete: 15 points.
Narbey: 12 points.
Occam's Spork: 12 points.
A Team: 6 points.
Me: 0 points.


Thoughts & Observations:
  • I really should have thought out my squad better.
  • Also, I should have come to the table with an actual plan.
  • Single Shot Rockets were not used in this game.
  • I think I missed some events during Turn 4.
  • Once again the new player won the game.
