Do you run Star Warriors for space combat?

What do you like/dislike about the set of rules?

I used to have this game in the 1e days. My gaming groups played it as its own game sometimes, but we never used it in conjunction with the RPG, even with those modules that had the Star Warriors scenarios. From a few surviving 1e starship stat sheets I can see that at one point we did import the shield rules from Star Warriors into the RPG.

At some point in the 90s I sold the game for probably nothing more than petty cash, and I really regret it. I wish I had it now. My son would probably love it.

I bought it for the sake of completeness, but haven't really explored it.

That's me. I've owned it since it came out, but I've never played a single session of it. Never even tried it out as a test.

I've run long term, multi-year Star Wars campaigns, but I always used the simple rules in the core rulebook for ship battles--not that ship battles came up all that often in my games.

I was just curious about it. I've thought about selling it on eBay, but, then again, I'd like to play it at least once!

It's an interesting take on Starfighter Combat but is pretty tedious.

Tedious = Not-fun.

Yeah we never played it for any big epic battles. Just some simple basic dogfights.

I may try to read up on the rules.

Then again, I may just go to eBay with it.

Hm...
