This game is still in its infancy, but they were demoing the beta rules at Gen COn and it looks beyond amazing. I truly hope the finished product is as good as it looks. Those of use that bought the Star Wars space game from Wizard’s a few years back need our faith in ship combat restored.

Here is a snipit from FF’s website:

X-Wing is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful Rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates exciting Star Wars space combat throughout its several included scenarios. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!

The X-Wing starter set includes everything you need to begin your battles, such as scenarios, cards, and fully assembled and painted ships. What’s more, X-Wing‘s quick-to-learn ruleset establishes the foundation for a system that can be expanded with your favorite ships and characters from the Star Wars universe.
