Are you looking for a tabletop game this holiday that combines all the excitement of the Star Wars movies, super cool miniatures, and easy to learn gameplay? I just might have the perfect game for you. Meet me after the jump to learn more about the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game after the jump.
From Fantasy Flight Games, the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game is one of this year’s hottest tabletop strategy games, using highly detailed miniatures that will make collectors and Star Wars fans green with envy.
Not only can you play your favorite X-Wings and Imperial TIE Fighters (as well as other Star Wars ships already out or soon to come), you can also play your favorite pilots like Luke Skywalker in the cockpit. Add a droid like R2D2, or various skills and conditions, so every game is different. Game cards add these varieties to the battle. And it’s not just combat, there are several included scenarios. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission. Expansion packs include new pilots and even more cards.
The gameplay is fast paced yet simple (for the old folks like me). If you want a sample of how it works, you can click here or check out the tutorial below:
