Fishing cancelled

Our fishing plans in ruins because of ice, Cameron came up and we played Star Wars Rebellion.

What a great game.  Cameron had me trapped.  The death star was about to move up to the rebel base.  I made a suicidal attack -- but I managed to get enough sympathy that I caused the game to end before Cameron could make the move to win the game.  So, so, so, so close!!!!!!!

T'was on the good ship Venus, ....

Jim's ship rules.

I have 4 British 2nd raters.  I faced off against Steve with 3 French 3rd raters.  While I beat him, I took so much damage that the honors really went to Steve!

Meanwhile, Mike with the rest of the fleet faced off a superior French force and managed to outlast them -- just.
