Battle Report: Oasis @ Connector Cafe

This is the first of two battle reports.  We had enough players that we split into two tables using two different settings.  This also marks our first return to the Connector Cafe in two years.

Narbey (5 Frames & 20 Systems) = (7 Points per Asset) * (7 assets) = 49 points.  (Skitterers)
   Yellow Recon by Fire -- 2Ra+d8/2Y/2W.
   Red Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Orange Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   White Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Green Brawler -- 2Rh+d8/2B/1Gd8/2W.

Me (6 Frames & 23 Systems) = (4 Points per Asset) * (8 assets) = 32 points.  (Tarantula)
   Red Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Blue Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   White Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.

   Green Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Orange Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Yellow Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1Y/2W.

Pete (6 Frames & 24 Systems) = (4 Points per Asset) * (6 assets) = 24 points.  (Tachikoma)
   White Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Green Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Red Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Yellow -- 2Rd+d8//1G/1Y/2W.
   Blue -- 2Ra+d8//1B/1Y/2W.
   Orange -- 2Rh+d8//1B/1G/2W.


This is what the table looked like at the start of the game.



Events of Turn 1 (DDC @ 11): Pete's Blue frame hits Narbey's White frame for 1.  Narbey's Orange frame hits my White frame for 2.  My Blue frame moves forward and hits Narbey's White frame for 1.  Narbey's Red frame hits Pete's Yellow frame for 2.  Pete's Orange frame destroys Narbey's Red frame with 6 damage and seizes the Station it was guarding.  Narbey's Green frame hits my Blue frame for 5.

Narbey: 35 points.
Me: 32 points.
Pete: 27 points.



Events of Turn 2 (DDC @ 7): Narbey's Green frame destroys my Blue frame with 4 damage.  Narbey's White frame hits my White frame for 4.  My White frame hits his Yellow frame in retaliation for 1.  My Red frame hits the fuel dump for 3 damage and all frames within 4 units are pushed back 4 units.  Pete's Orange frame leaps away from the Station it seized and  hits hits Narbey's Yellow frame for 3.  Pete's Blue Frame hits Narbey's Orange frame for 3, but that allows Narbey to recapture his Station.  Pete's Yellow frame destroys my White frame with 2 damage.


Narbey: 42 points.
Me: 24 points.
Pete: 24 points.




Events of Turn 3 (DDC @ 4): My Orange frame destroys Narbey's Yellow frame with 2 damage.  I seize the Station it was guarding.  Pete's White frame hits my Yellow frame for 2.  Pete's Orange frame hits Narbey's Orange for 1.  Pete's Yellow frame hits my Yellow frame for 1.  My Red frame hits Pete's Orange frame for 1.

Narbey: 28 points.
Me: 28 points.
Pete: 24 points.




Events of Turn 4 (DDC @ 1):  (At this point it was late and I got a little sloppy with the note taking.)  Pete's Orange frame destroys Narbey's Orange frame and seizes the Station it was guarding.  Pete's Red frame seizes my Red Station, which it had been slowly creeping up on for three turns.  The Doomsday Clock is ticked to zero.

Pete: 30 points.
Me: 24 points.
Narbey: 14 points.








Here's an aftermath picture.



Thoughts & Observations:
  • This was Pete's first game in a year and a half.
  • This was the debut of the Oasis table setting.
  • I need a little more terrain for this setting.  The table was a little sparse.
  • We also tried out a new rule with the exploding fuel dump.
  • The edges of the green felt I cut for the oasis section didn't look that great.
  • We were going to have the convoy progress across the table but we forgot to move it after the first turn.
  • We had at least three people knock on the windows and ask what we were doing.
