of 'Asteroid Runners' fame. Appropriately, we were playing the mission where you get an objective point by intentionally colliding with one of four obstacles on the board. I was drawing two objectives and picking one.... my alternative was one that gave bonus points for shooting ships in their rears arc, not a winner when I had a Victory II SD vs a Corvette and a Frigate.
I see the price has now dropped back to NZD $102.31 I've never seen a game price be so volatile.
Whatever, there are a lot of random objective cards and John and I found ourselves treating lining up shots as incidental to the real work of lining up our flight paths. It really showed the advantages of John's favourite ship, the humble Corvette.
Thanks for reading.
