Battle Report: Alien Planet 2

This was the first meet up of 2020 for the group.  We originally had enough players for two games -- with a 3 and 4 player split -- but one person had to drop out due to work concerns.  We ended up keeping the two game split though.  There's no battle report for the second game as I've tried keeping track of two games at once and even with someone taking notes and me taking pictures, the battle report for the second game never comes out as well as the first.  The table-settings used in both games had been used in at least six months so I felt it was time to give them some love again.

Me (5 Frames & 19 Systems) = (7 Points per Asset) * (7 assets) = 49 points. (Goblins)
   Brown Armored Spotter -- 1B/1Gd8/2Y/2W + SSR.
   Lime Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Blue Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Yellow Recon by Fire -- 2Ra+d8/2Y/2W.
   Red Brawler -- 2Rh+d8/2B/1Gd8/2W.

PJ_Nichts (6 Frames & 22 Systems) = (4 Points per Asset) * (8 assets) = 32 points.  (mecha)
   Lime -- 2Rh/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Green -- 2Rh/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR (x2). 
   Red Heavy Assault -- 2Rd+d8/1B/1G/2W.
   Orange Heavy Assault -- 2Rd+d8/1B/1G/2W.
   Blue Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Yellow Spotter -- 1Gd8/2Y2W.

Tom (6 Frames & 24 Systems) = (3 Points per Asset) * (8 assets) = 24 points.  (Construction Crew)
   Red Hammer -- 2Rd/2B/1Y/2W.
   Purple Hammer -- 2Rd/2B/1Y/2W.
   Orange -- 2Rh/2B/1Gd8/2W + SSR.
   Yellow -- 
2Rh/2B/1Gd8/2W + SSR.
   White -- 2Rh/2B/1Gd8/2W + SSR.
   Robot -- 2Ra+d8/2Y/2W.

Thoughts & Observations:
  • I tried to make a deal with PJ Nicht to get through the game but I went back on my word, so that didn't end well.
  • Honestly I should have made a deal with Tom and then carved up the board between us.
  • We had two new players at this meet up but they weren't in this game.
