"Cool but expansions practically required"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I had a good time playing it with the kids a few times. Unfortunately the base game seems a bit unbalanced for beginners. It feels like the whole thing is constructed to make you want to buy another X-Wing… Thus starting a potentially expensive collecting habit. Having said that, it's a fun game and quite different from anything else we have (mainly card & board games).

"The best star wars table top game ever!"
5 stars"

This is currently at the top of my list of “games everyone must learn to play.” I have a family that play games from monopoly to Warhammer 40k but I also have some family members who are still learning how to play snap. They have all managed to grasp the rules and have a good time. I do own all of the expansions however I would say to people like Alan's review – you do not need them to play. If you put an amazing pilot like Luke Skywalker in the x-wing then he is more than a match for the tie-fighters and you might think the imperials need a ship or two to back them up!

I recommend this game to every one as a must to play especially if you love the star wars universe!

"Top game; fun, quick to play, and tactically challenging."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

What a great game, my friends and I had a heap of fun playing this for the first time. Simple, easy to learn basic rules but complexity is added with ship selection and upgrades. The maneuver dial adds an exciting step where you try to out guess or bluff your opponent. This definitely one of the most exciting table top games I've played. Give it a try.

Please note this is a Star Wars X-Wing First Edition set. The ship can be used in Second Edition but the included cards are now out of date. Conversion packs can be purchased separately.

Control the most advanced starfighters and outstanding pilots in the galaxy! In X-Wing Miniatures Game, you take the role of squad leader and command a group of merciless Imperial or daring Rebel pilots in furious ship-to-ship space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates exciting Star Wars space battles from small engagements of only a couple of crafts, to large conflicts where multiple squadrons clash. Select and equip your ships, pick your crew, plan your attack, and complete your mission.

SWX01 X-Wing Core Set includes everything you need to begin your battles:

  • 13 Ship cards (featuring nine Imperial and four Rebel pilots)
  • 5 Upgrade cards
  • 3 Fully assembled and painted ships.

With the quick-start rules, you can simply select one of the exciting missions, position your ships on the playing space as instructed, and choose your opening move.

With its dynamic rules system, beautifully detailed components, and range of gameplay options, X-Wing immerses players in the tense cinematic excitement of Star Wars' interplanetary combat. Take to the stars, and decide the fate of the galaxy!

Please Note: Due to very high demand worldwide the supply of the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures range is being affected by production delays. Special Orders placed will reserve your place in the queue for our next shipments but we are unable to confirm exact ETAs on when stock will be available.
