A couple of weeks ago we reviewed the fun Star Wars The Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight. The next wave of minis is scheduled for release in February, but you can check out—and maybe play with—the new minis before then. Fantasy Flight has announced the locations of game stores hosting Kessel Run events. To participate, players bring 100-point squadrons to a participating retailer and compete through a number of Swiss-style preliminary rounds. But in the final round, everything changes. After the close of the preliminary rounds, the tournament’s two top players set aside their personal squads and assume control of preview squads built from the event kits.
One player will field two A-wings and the incomparable Millennium Falcon. The other will field two TIE Interceptors and the versatile and deadly Slave I. Then, each of the tournament’s top four participants get to claim one of the preview expansions!
- 1st Place – First choice of one of the included preview ships
- 2nd Place – Second choice of one of the included preview ships
- 3rd Place – Third choice of one of the included preview ships
- 4th Place – Fourth choice of one of the included preview ships
Sounds fun! Go play some Star Wars, and thanks for reading!
