Out on Maneuvers

In the Out on Maneuvers series of posts I take a look at different ways you can fly your fleets around the table.  If you want to learn formation maneuvering, this is the place to start.

clontroper5's writeup of Threat Radius


  1. Nice set of writeups. As someone that had and studied the Rebel Alliance Sourcebook (second edition) and still have it on my shelves, it was pretty cool to see it used to describe Armada strategy.

    1. That sourcebook has always been one of my favorites. My mind went to it after just a couple of games of Armada. It's fun that it applies at all, although sometimes it's a bit of a stretch.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the read.

  2. This is a great series of articles - I was looking for something exactly like this (and didn't find it!) when I started playing Armada.

    I have played 6 games now, and I have come to similar conclusions as you so far.

    Thanks, and I'll keep checking back. :)

    1. Glad it was helpful, I really enjoyed writing these.
