Welcome back to ReyLo in the Rim, where Geek, my Rey Palpatine, cooperates with me, the Ben Skywalker of his dreams.  Speaking of cooperation, we're going to look at how to be a good teammate in Rebellion in the Rim.

Episode 20: Supplemental - Malee, Triple Onagers, and a Song

Link to the Podcast

Coaster Or Gold:  Malee Hurra

"My List is All Right."

Got a call from an old friend he’d used to play Aceholes
Said he couldn’t keep up the Canadian way
Cut the squads, grabbed Sato, brought a bunch of real coasters
Now he gives them the janky routine in PA... 

I don't need you to worry for me 'cause I'm alright
I don't want you to tell me it's time to play gold
I don't care what you say anymore this is my list
Go ahead with your own list leave me alone

I never said you had to offer me a second game
I never said I was a victim of playing lame
I still belong
Don't get me wrong
And you can have your fun
But not on table one

2 Rebellion 2 Rim: Basic Fleet Building

This is the article by Geek19 posted on his website - keep your eyes open for Part 3 by me soon! Let's start the RitR discussion by discussing how to build your own fleets for the game. This is one of those "involved" articles I tend to end up writing, so get comfy.
I think these guys are massing near Sullust...

ReyLo in the Rim? - Geek19 & Biggs Semi-Exhaustive Article Blitz

Hello again everyone.  I'm Biggs and I'm partnering with Geek19 over at CannotGetYourShipOut to talk about something we've both been doing a lot of lately - Rebellion in the Rim.  We're going to be doing a lot of articles on it over the next couple weeks / months / whatever, and this article is going to be our jumping off point.  He's writing one similar to this over on his website now.

I'm going to be making a bunch of ReyLo references throughout this because when I asked to join him in his insane quest to write these articles, I did so by spamming him pictures with Kylo holding his hand out for Rey.

Teaching Someone To Play - A Thematic Approach (Podcast Supplement)

So, you're introducing someone new to the game, let's say someone who hasn't played a lot of games before, and isn't ready to really just "jump in" to 8 Waves (or more if you're reading this in the future).  Let's teach them the basics in a nice, comfortable environment.  Now a podcast discussion instead of a blog post, really.

Leaked Product Names / Numbers - What Can They Mean?

So, once again Europe comes to the rescue, leaking things they shouldn't leak about upcoming products, with a lot of FFG products for pre-order that we haven't even heard of yet.  Assuming these are true, what does it mean for Armada?
