Why It's On The List
  • a simple system of simultaneous movement programming combined with gorgeous pre-painted minis... and it's Star Wars, for crying out loud!
Tips & Tricks:
    • This is NOT a cheap game system to get involved with... but if you're patient, you can sometimes find X-Wing minis for sale.
    • Yes, there is a lot of luck involved... but superior movement planning & winning the "bluffing" game helps you win the game.
    • I like scenarios with objectives better than straight out "kill or be killed" scenarios - wish there were more 'official' scenarios. How about a scenario book, Fantasy Flight?!
    • It's not specifically about X-Wing, but I did write what I consider to be a helpful rumination on "toolkit" game systems
