We’re super-excited to announce our participation in Fantasy Flight’s X-Wing Miniatures Game Kessel Run Preview Event on Friday, December 14th. If you haven’t yet checked out one of the best strategy miniatures games of the year, now’s a perfect time – we think it’s so cool that we’ve even put it into our holiday gift guide. The second wave of expansion ships will be out in the early part of 2013, but our Kessel Run event gives participants a chance to win a preview ship from that release, weeks ahead of time!
More details about the event can be found on the Kessel Run announcement on FFG’s website. In the meantime, read up on the tournament rules, which can be downloaded here. Each player will need to bring a 100-point squad and two copies of its corresponding squad list (one for the GM and one for your opponents) to the event, and entry will be $10 per player. There will be three to four rounds of play until the championship round, wherein all players will use only the new Kessel Run expansion ships. The top four players get to take home a pre-release of a Star Wars spacecraft!
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 Star Wars’ exciting space battles. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!
