Took some time reading through and discussing bedfore we got into the rather different game mechanics, particularly the "battle board" and allocating our dice to the various categories. To be honest we didn't make much use of the special properties. I suspect that would come once the basic activation and movement has sunk in.
As we weren't using the (expensive) specialised Saga D6, but had marked the appropriate D6 scores on the boards the mystique of the Saga dice was exposed percetage analysis.
Once we got the hang of it we raced through three four unit games but now it's time for the re-read of the rules to see what we were doing wrong.
