Default Successful playtest!

At Travellercon this weekend I managed two successful playtests of my fleet-level board/miniature game: TRAVELLER:FLEET ACTION.

The Imperial player commanded 24 capital ships in five squadrons while the Zhodani had 43 capital ships in 6 squadrons. Both times the superior numbers of the Zhos outweighed the Imps better tech

Of greater importance all players quickly picked up the movement and command systems. We did have some trouble with the combat rules (they still need some streamlining and clearer explanation).

Combat seemed very deadly, perhaps too much so. In three turns of combat in one battle, the Zhodani lost 23 ships killed or crippled, yet they still won since they accomplished their mission. Plankwell-class battleships seem to attract meson gun fire: in the first action three were killed, with the fourth crippled but jumping to safety. In the second action all four were vaporized in one massive blast of meson fire from all three Zho Batrons.

Everyone seemed to have fun.
