Star Wars: X-Wing™ Miniatures Game
Last year, I told you about a new X-wing / Tie fighter based miniatures game being developed by Fantasy Flight game (makers of Talisman, Battlestar Galatica, etc). Well, they have finished the game and will release it at Gen Con Indy this August (though it wont go on sale anywhere else until Sept.).
From the Gen Con Newsletter:
Star Wars: X-Wing™ Miniatures GameThis year at Gen Con Indy, Fantasy Flight Games Organized Play for X-Wing™ gets started with the inaugural Star Wars: X-Wing tournament!
In X-Wing, the miniatures game of tactical space combat, powerful Rebel X-wings collide with nimble Imperial TIE fighters. Whether you field rookie pilots or legends like Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, the detailed miniatures and intuitive gameplay will immerse you in the game’s cinematic space dogfights. The epic space battles of X-Wing are designed to be every bit as dramatic and action-packed as those from the classic Star Wars trilogy, and the action is magnified when you play X-Wing as part of the game’s worldwide Organized Play community!
The game’s Core Set and first four expansions will be available from the moment Gen Con Indy kicks off until they sell out. You can pick up your copy of the Core Set at the Fantasy Flight Games booth in the exhibition hall, and you can further bolster your squadron with additional pilots and starfighters from the X-Wing™ Expansion Pack, TIE Fighter™ Expansion Pack, Y-Wing™ Expansion Pack, and TIE Advanced™ Expansion Pack.
Then, Friday morning, Gen Con Indy 2012 attendees can participate in the world’s first X-Wing tournament. Registration for the event begins at 10 am, and the action kicks into high gear by 11 am.
X-Wingis ready to jump to hyperspace at Gen Con Indy. May the Force be with you™!
