I'm now super excited about next week's Imperial Assault finale. The rebels have been on something of a spree recently, winning 4 out of the last 5 missions. We got halfway through the final mission last time and I'm super excited to see what they make of the final challenge:

It's Darth Vader. Obviously. He's stupidly powerful: 25 health, cannot be stunned or bled, spending 2 threat gives him an extra 2 block (on top of his 2 black dice defense roll) and he activates for one action after every Rebel activation.

All that and one of the Rebels is already wounded. All I need to do is wound the rest to win. By previously winning so often they've given themselves a strawberry floater of a final fight. I'm still not confident though; they mowed through Weiss in his AT-ST with 20 health in one turn so who knows?

So after rinsing the last two quite well (Easy mode though. Stuff anything harder solo) I decide to spend the 3XP to run "Carnevale of Horrors" as a side mission to my Dunwich LCG campaign.

That was very very very close. (Even on easier). Like to mechanically as everything ends up chasing you round the "map". Ashcan Pete's move and investigate action is invaluable.

Managed to get the "best ending" out (I think). Only 1XP from it (so net loss of XP) but 2 more cards to use in my campaign deck.

I did draw the curse of Rougarou weakness this time, but luckily in this campaign there's SO much to wail on it was never an issue - and Pete can slowly cure Horrow on turns I didn't have.

Taking down the "boss" was a hectic and close thing. 2 Allies, Duke, Pete and a Coat to soak damage an I just made it.

Another Ally card though...and a Mask. I think my deck is now about 1/3rd Allies. I just use them as disgardable health right now (and can have two up)

My wife and I won our second game of Pandemic at the weekend on the 6 epidemic difficulty, playing as 4 players. I think we've decided that the researcher and dispatcher are absolutely invaluable as we've used both of those characters when we've won and the dispatcher is really effective at getting the team members together to swap city cards. We've also decided it's far more effective to get into cities to trade their cards rather than waiting and hoping to pick up the right colour cities at the end of each turn.
