|We had a huge SFB game at Casa de'Tomas on 1/28. After that wrapped up, we broke out ACTA and demoed it to the SFB guys who'd not yet had the opportunity to play it.
3 Federation CAs and a BC versus 3 Klingon D7s and a C7 on a 4x4 open map.
Turn 1 consisted on the new guys moving into firing range and getting used to the turn sequence:
Turns 2 and 3 involved a bit more action as the range closed up, weapons were fired, and the guys decided to try out some of the special actions.
Turn 4 was when things rally got hairy. All the remaining ships got up close and personal. Take Evasive Action, Overload Weapons, and even one HET special actions were utilized.
Turn 5 and we're down to 3 ships. A Federation BC and two very damaged (but not yet crippled D7s)
The BC tried to reverse out of overload range.
One D7 stayed on it's front shield while the other utilized it's manueverability to get in behind him. End result: A Crippled D7, a damaged D7, and a expanding cloud of plasma that used to be a BC.
