This Year of New Editions is seeing the first time many games are getting a 2nd edition. Pathfinder, Black Powder, and this one: the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight. For you long-time flyboys and flygirls, or those just looking to jump into the cockpit for the first time, now's your chance to pick up this new version of the game. The new box set is available now.
From the announcement:
It is a period of civil war. Across the galaxy, brave Rebel pilots strike out against the tyranny of the Galactic Empire, engaging swarms of Imperial starfighters in tense ship-to-ship combat. Meanwhile, on the fringes of the conflict, notorious criminals, pirates, and bounty hunters scour the stars in search of ways to extract a profit from both sides. New aces emerge alongside some of the Star Wars galaxy’s best pilots, and now you have the chance to earn your reputation as a crack fighter pilot. A new era of thrilling starfighter battles has arrived. The X-Wing™ Second Edition Core Set (and fourteen expansions) are now available!
X-Wing Second Edition gives you the chance to assemble your squadron, hop into the cockpit of some of the most iconic fighters from the Star Wars saga, and engage in frantic space battles on your tabletop. During every game, you’ll plot your ships’ maneuvers, making split-second decisions as you fly into the chaos of a space battle. You’ll take advantage of every ship and every pilot’s unique capabilities to gain an advantage over your opponent. And you’ll make use of several upgrades and choose your special weapons as you strategically position your ships to launch devastating attacks. Man your ships and take command of your squadron!
