As soon as the second game began I had to watch as my trusty sidekick Jango Fett (my son) has met his match. On the third turn he was lining up his star craft to make a run at the GO and the prize money, unfortunately for him he rolled too big. Back to the same Millennium Falcon hovering over Echo Base on Hoth he has hit 3 times already! With only 50 credits, and all of his properties mortgaged he is down for the count.
I tried to explain to him that the darkside was a fickle master, but he would have none of it. He was convinced that there was a plot against us by the rebel scum. 4 turns later I am starting to believe him. As I carefully work my way around the board I am starting to sense that the makings of a final blow are about to be dealt to me and my minions.
Through the giggling and the whispering, Han had somehow convinced Luke to trade him two yellow ones for one green one. Conveniently that gave Luke possession of Endor and all of the green ones, while just around the corner Han had somehow gained access to my death star and has control of all the yellows and the Cloud City and the reds now!
As I line up my fury to make a run through the Endor region, I roll the dice and feel the power of the force from my *daughter Luke, beckon me to come to the surface in the Endor Forest to settle this once and for all. I have finally realized that it’s a trap, and that the dark side has failed me. To the Endor Forest to make my last stand Vader goes.
High fives all around between the girls, (Mom was secretly watching from the kitchen and had to get one as well. It was evident at this point that there were plans against us!) My master plot was for me and Jango to secretly team up to overthrow the Rebel scum. How dare they have a master plan to counteract my master plan!
When Mom joined in on the high fives Darth Vader and Jango Fett caught each others eyes and at that moment, we both realized who was really in control of the plans. Luke and Han were just pawns in *her elaborate scheme to see us fall. This is most disturbing, I will have to contact my master and tell him of this new disturbance in the force.
As I make my escape I give one last moment to a snarky comment directed at her to let her know I am onto her and known her game, she replies with, “I got your force power right here you geek”
Oh noes, it burns, she got me. 🙂
