4.0 out of 5 stars Great roll kid, that was one in, er, eight... 7 Nov 2012

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's Star Wars Episode IV-VI dogfighting on your tabletop, and you get to play with X-Wings and TIE Fighters. What more do you need to know?

The rules are simple, gameplay is fairly fast, and the components are beautiful. And it's basically 'playing with Star Wars toys' but with a rule system. However, the core set only gives you three ships and you'll soon want to expand your squads. This is where it gets expensive. In fact, many people are investing in two core sets and at least one of each expansion.

And with Wave 2 around the corner, offering A-Wings and TIE Interceptors, along with big ships like the Falcon and Slave I, it's more than likely you'll be looking at an outlay of ~100 for a set you'll be happy with. Fantasy Flight Games know what they're doing with this one.

I am a hardened wargamer of 50 years of age. I have played many many miniatures games and board games. The majority have some flaws. Somethings that leave a sour taste, or perhaps need a house rule.

X-Wing is perfect. The game play is perfect, the models are beautiful, the other components are both functional and beautiful.

the only criticism that could possibly be raised is that the game is not cheap. But then most "cheap" games are nothing like this good. You are paying for top quality components.

Could you play this game with little paper models basically for free? Yes you could, but would you want to?

5.0 out of 5 stars It's A Trap. :-) 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase
My friends and I have banded that quote/joke around, it's kinda true because it's a basic set but if you do a bit of reading you should know what you are getting and what you are in for.

I now have three of these, and eight TIE Fighters in total, so that means I have two TIE Expansions on top of these. You don't need the TIE Expansion/s to build your swarm so you could get four of these if you are going down that route. I bought the TIE Expansion and the X-wing expansion (basically for Wedge).

Why would you want more than one copy of this? Almost straight away you'll discover you need more dice than are supplied in one box. Not a problem as you'll also discover you need more ships, and this box is the most cost effective way to get both. You would also have extra sets of damage cards which you can shuffle together when you have plenty of ships battling it out, I haven't done it yet but we're getting there.

Game wise: We're still learning, this is my brother and I, but so far we're enjoying it. Luke might not be as he is getting blasted into atoms regularly. We had two games from one basic set here, being seasoned gamers we played the full rules. It didn't take long to realise that if the TIEs get in behind the X-Wings it becomes incredibly tough for the X-wings. R2 D2 is a bit of a double edged sword, if you perform a green maneuver he regains you a shield providing you have lost one or both of them. This sounds good but when you are dogfighting with the TIEs you'll soon find performing a green maneuver will lose you that shield with interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars We'll need to engage them ship to ship... 9 Jun 2013
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If I have one question for Fantasy Flight beyond "would you like me to change my payroll account to your number?" it is "why didn't you do this sooner?" XWM marries a tried and tested gaming formula (à la Warhammer or Wings of Glory) with arguably the biggest film franchise of all time. It's a match made in Heaven, or, at the very least, the nearest 3'x3' flat space you can find to play. In summary, X-Wing Miniatures is excellent, but be warned: it's an atrocious money sink. Read on to find out more...

This is the core set, although 'Core' is in very grave danger of being a misnomer. 'Bare essentials' would have been more appropriate. Included in the box is, admittedly, enough to get a small scale, 2 player game of Miniatures going. On the Rebel side, one T65 X-Wing, and on the Imperial side, two TIE/LN starfighters. You read that right: Fantasy Flight have wisely considered their audience and sidestepped the New Trilogy. I also like that, with the in-universe assertion that Rebel pilots often fought their opposites two- or three-to-one, the ratio of 2:1 is faithfully maintained in this game. The models are absolutely gorgeous, and I breathed a sigh of relief to know that I wouldn't be hand painting them, although I've seen plenty of examples already where gamers have decided to go all Warhammer on their fleets regardless. These sit atop plastic bases into which pilot tokens are inserted to create the final playing pieces. My main concern is that the models, especially the X-Wing with its little cannons, are INCREDIBLY delicate. This is not a tabletop game for the clumsy or heavy handed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great game, but beware.. 2 Jun 2014
By T. King
Verified Purchase
25 sounds like a great price for a new game, but you'll definitely end up spending a lot more after it arrives.

The mechanics are good, the miniatures are great, the other components are well made too.. this is a really well designed game as you'd expect from Fantasy Flight. The rules are pretty simple (watch the FF youtube explanation) yet deep enough to allow lots of strategy with other ships. The gameplay is fast and fun and really captures the feeling of a dogfight in space.

I do have some minor complaints though - and even though they won't damage the score of this review, they are worth taking into consideration. Firstly the price (and need) for expansions make this potentially very expensive. I bought the Millennium Falcon and Slave I too, but personally I don't enjoy using them as much because I prefer the small-ship battles - not everyone will agree with me here, but I'd just be careful of throwing cash at them. The game itself can also get a little bit fiddly as you have to use lots of range markers and accurately move your ships whilst filling the table with markers of all sorts. You'll need a big table to get the best out of the game (the recommended board is 3'x3'.. but that doesn't include space for all of your ship cards and extra bits). It also doesn't come with any kind of 'board' or mat, so beware that playing it on your brown table might detract from the theme somewhat - and extra space mats that work for the game are another 25ish.

Finally the packaging is pretty annoying as there are no inserts for any of the multiple components in the box.
