  1. Any chance of some links to some of the products and websites mentioned on this episode?

  2. Loving the show guys! Keep it up!

  3. I had a great use of tactical crashing where my opponent put his Slave-1 on an asteroid so I moved one of my x-wing’s forward 4 so he couldn’t get off and it caused his Captain Jonas to crash into the back of the Slave-1.
    With the use of another X-Wing I was able to stuff him on that asteroid for 4 rounds, and had range one shots on Captain Jonas who wasn’t able to fire any ordinance as he was in range 1 the whole time.
