I've been playing a lot of this solo during the covid pandemic. Mantic games has several expansions that include narrative solo missions.
My favorite solo game. It works great to set up and leave it, in all its massive glory and play a few turns here and there.
I absolutely am terrible at winning. But that does not stop me from enjoying the horrible defeat over and over again.
I've only played it twice (both times with the Rogue One expansion). But both times left me wanting to play it again. Right now.
WE played this and the Xeno Game's Version so many times in middle school and High School that we could set it up from memory. I'll admit that there is no chance it will hit the table these days, but I have very fond memorys of playing with my dad and friends.
This is a lot of fun when you first start playing it, watching your and your opponents ships fall apart is great fun. But it loses some luster when people get better at ship creation.
