A-Wing Sneak Peek from Fantasy Flight!

box-SWX08-right Fantasy Flight has announced that the second wave of starships for X-Wing are hitting retailers on Feb. 28.

They also gave a sneak preview of the A-Wing, with a look at the two new pilot cards and the maneuver dial—this is by far the fastest and most maneuverable rebel ship yet!

This second wave of single-ship expansions will also feature such iconic ships as the Millennium Falcon, the Slave I, and the TIE Interceptor. So players' fleets will be bolstered considerably with this new round of ships!

Keep checking back here at TOG to find out all the latest and greatest news from around the gaming world! Thanks for reading!

More X-Wing News!

So, we're pretty big Star Wars geeks when it gets right down to it. And we're excited to see more news about the upcoming release of X-Wing. Fantasy Flight rolled out some more info on their upcoming X-Wing miniatures game this week, this time they gave us some info on the first expansion for the title. I'd say it's more of an add-on than an expansion. It features one T-65 X-Wing. It also has some ship cards, two new pilots (including the ever-so-skilled Wedge Antilles) and a few other customizable features. The ships themselves look fantastic and the buzz is pretty good surrounding this game. Although there's no word on when this single-fighter expansion will release, my guess is they'll be getting them to market pretty quickly to capitalize on the release-date fever.

If you're heading to GenCon to play X-Wing, be sure to check back here and let us know what you thought of it!

X-Wing - Stay on Target!

Good News - Fantasy Flight Games has announced that the long awaited release of X-Wing their newest miniatures game, will launch and be available as soon as GenCon '12 kicks off, and they'll sell them until they run dry. Then beginning Friday morning of the con, they will start official sanctioned tournaments for the game under their governing body of FFG Organized Play. They demo'd the game at last year's GenCon and gamers have been clamoring for it ever since then. Bad News - There isn't much bad news here, with the exception that I'm not going to be attending Gen Con this year so I'll have to wait to get my hands on X-Wing until it hits shelves locally.
