Star Wars: X-Wing is a miniature war game designed by Jay Little and produced by Fantasy Flight Games that was released at Gen Con in 2012.[2] It features tactical ship-to-ship dogfighting between various types of starfighters set in the fictional Star Wars universe.[3] The game is said to be easy to learn and quick to play taking anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes from first set-up to battle's end. Each turn both players give all their ships movement orders without knowing what their opponent is doing before resolving these orders while trying to shoot down enemy craft.[4]

Game description from the publisher[edit]

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. [5]

Core Game[edit]

The core set, which is required to play the game, includes one X-wing fighter miniature and two TIE Fighter miniatures.
