More Star Navy from GuadaComaCon

Since I already posted a little on this game, here are some more pics of the 5150: Star Navy playtest at GuadaComaCon back in August.
Again, crappy phone camera = blurry pictures, but you'll get the idea of the size of the game we played, which wrapped up in (you guessed it) a couple of hours.
 We had lots of asteroids, and more than a dozen ships per side, including carriers.
I also got to use my scratchbuilt escape pods as markers to show where a ship got blown up.  By the end of the game, I had quite a number of lifepods on the board.
And yes, those space rocks made a difference, especially when one fleet was heading straight into them, and vice versa!
The game played smoothly, and the two players, who had never seen the game before, picked it up very quickly.
And, as always, it was a pleasure to get a whole bunch of my spaceship minis on the table for a game.

Great game! Can't wait till it's released! I really want to try it solo, since it's like all other THW games.

Really wish I could get some SFW playing time here in Orange County CA.
