Okay, here's what I hope the build queue looks like this round:

Rebel Base: Space ▲, Ground ▲, queue 1
Alderaan (Imperial): Ground ▲, queue 1
Bothawui (Imperial): Ground ●, queue 2
Corellia (Imperial): Space ▲ ■, queue 3
Coruscant (Imperial): Ground ▲, queue 1
Felucia (Imperial): Ground ▲, queue 1
Geonosis (Imperial): Space ▲, Ground ■, queue 2 subjugated
Kashyyyk (Imperial): Ground ▲ x2, queue 1 subjugated
Malastare (Imperial): Ground ▲, queue 1
Mandalore (Imperial): Ground ▲, Space ▲, queue 1 blockaded
Mustafar (Imperial): Space ▲, Space ●, queue 2 subjugated
Mygeeto (Imperial): Space ▲, Ground ■, queue 2
Naboo (Imperial): Ground ▲, Space ▲, queue 1
Nal Hutta: Ground ▲, Space ▲, queue 1
Ord Mantell (Imperial): Space ●,Ground ● queue 2 sabotaged
Rodia (Imperial): Ground ▲, queue 1
Ryloth (Imperial): Ground ▲, queue 1
Saleucami (Imperial): Ground ●, queue 1
Sullust (Imperial): Ground ▲ ■, queue 2
Utapau (Imperial): Space ● ■ queue 3

Build Queue
Rebel:
3: Nothing
2: Nothing
1: Rebel Transport, Rebel Trooper, Rebel Vanguard, Space ▲ Ground ▲

Imperial:
3: Space ▲● ■■
2: TIE Fighter, Assault Carrier, Star Destroyer, Star Destroyer, Space ▲▲▲ Ground ●▲ ■■
1: TIE Fighter, TIE Striker, Assault Carrier, Stormtrooper, AT-AT, Space ▲▲▲ Ground ▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲●

Keep an eye on your unit caps. Again, if you're at the cap of a unit, you can destroy one on the board to satisfy the queue if you want.

And our current forces, for reference:

Jyn goes on mission 1, Lando on mission 2, and Jan on mission 3.

I would consider dropping 6 and leaving Chewie free, but he's your leader so I'll leave that up to you.

Gentlemen. It has been a while since we convened; the Rebellion has been running us ragged, as I'm sure you know.

Image
However, we have located their base on a distant planet on the outskirts of the galaxy, and I believe that today, we can make an end of this.

Commence Operation Emperor's Spear.

The Star Destroyer packs up and retreats again, landing all its stuff on Dantooine, where the Rebel Base awaits.

Okay, but, to really get down to it...

I'll be honest, I wound up having a pretty miserable time with this. It's not anybody's fault, Shark and Bremen played a good game, we got outplayed on the whole and had more than our share of shitty luck, it just happens. This is a really complicated game that I'm grateful to Void for running, and the system itself is really interesting, because even with the constant, constant, constant failures and setbacks and just getting kicked in the fucking teeth over and over we had to deal with, we were never out of the game entirely. We got fucked over this round and it sucked but when I was planning missions I could still see a way we could potentially win the game outright this turn, if we just managed to survive until the end, and that's a neat way to design a game.

Unfortunately, even if things were never actually as bad as it seemed, and even if we always had a chance and there were always a few things up our sleeve we could maybe hope to win, literally nothing went our way the entire game and it was so disheartening to have things just get worse and worse and worse for us every single turn. And in the tabletop setting this was designed for it probably wouldn't have even been so bad, but instead of happening over a few hours in one sitting, it was just this constant background string of loss after loss after loss for a literal month, and it was agonizing. Nobody's fault, just an unfortunate conflict between the original design and how we were playing it, plus a few legit dumbass misplays on our part, plus a lot of bad luck. It's unfortunate, but it is what it is.

I'm sorry I've been a bit of an asshole and a sore loser over the course of this. Part of this is just the worst parts of my own personality coming out, which compounds and makes all the other unfortunate stuff even worse, but honestly at this point I'm just glad it's over.
