First up: X-Wing. Got in two solid games (capitol ships just for show) of x-wing, playing Imperials.
Brian's extensive collection is shown below. He had a program which created three semi-random 100point lists that we could chose between. Saved a LOT of time.
The final shot for game 2: All four of my fighters crammed into the enemy's blindspot. Very one-sided battle!
Then, probably my favorite game of the evening, "Captain Sonar". Two teams, each representing a submarine, hunting each other in real time (not turn based!), with each player taking on either the Captain, 1st Mate, Engineering and Sonar positions. It's all about team work and communication and was crazy fun, and relatively quick playing. Well, two of the games we played of it lasted 15-20 mins, but one epic game lasted about 40 somehow. If you have opportunities to game with 6-8 players, I very highly recommend this game.
Hats are of course optional (that's my opposing Captain and host, Brian).
