While Mark and I have played several small X-wing games over the last couple of weeks, some time ago we managed a larger battle. Larger in the sense of time rather then size of forces involved. What we basically did was play the first mission from the core rulebook with customized forces. I played the Dark Side with Darth Vader in his TIE advanced and two TIE aces to go along. Mark had two x-wings and an Y wing.
The game was pretty horrible for me since Vader lasted about 3 or 4 turns before being smoked and the rest of the TIE's were dead as well after several more turns. Because new TIE's (with lesser pilots) would enter play from my edge the game kept going but the Alliance shuttle eventually escaped pretty much unharmed.
We had some hilarious moments especially when several of our craft lined up accidentally in a ridiculous polonaise.
May the force be with you!
