Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful Rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, the X-Wing Miniatures Game recreates exciting Star Wars space combat throughout its several included scenarios. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!

Whatever your chosen vessel, the rules of X-Wing facilitate fast and visceral gameplay that puts you in the middle of Star Wars fiercest firefights. Each ship type has its own unique piloting dial, which is used to secretly select a speed and maneuver each turn. After planning maneuvers, each ship's dial is revealed and executed (starting with the lowest skilled pilot). So whether you rush headlong toward your enemy showering his forward deflectors in laser fire, or dance away from him as you attempt to acquire a targeting lock, you'll be in total control throughout all the tense dogfighting action.

Star Wars: X-Wing features (three) unique missions, and each has its own set of victory conditions and special rules; with such a broad selection of missions, only clever and versatile pilots employing a range of tactics will emerge victorious. What's more, no mission will ever play the same way twice, thanks to a range of customization options, varied maneuvers, and possible combat outcomes. Damage, for example, is determined through dice and applied in the form of a shuffled Damage Deck. For some hits your fighter sustains, you'll draw a card that assigns a special handicap. Was your targeting computer damaged, affecting your ability to acquire a lock on the enemy? Perhaps an ill-timed weapon malfunction will limit your offensive capabilities. Or worse yet, your pilot could be injured, compromising his ability to focus on the life-and-death struggle in which he is engaged...

The Star Wars: X-Wing starter set includes everything you need to begin your battles, such as scenarios, cards, and fully assembled and painted ships. What's more, Star Wars: X-Wing's quick-to-learn ruleset establishes the foundation for a system that can be expanded with your favorite ships and characters from the Star Wars universe.

4 Pod Racing (X-Wing style)
Here are some free rules I have designed to create a pod racing variant based loosely on the game "X-Wing" from Fantasy Flight Games. Owning a copy of the "X-Wing" core rules is required to play. It is also inspired by the N64 console game "Star Wars Episode I Racer". All characters portrayed are the property of Lucasfilm and LucasArts.
11 Cinematic Death Star Trench Run
Hope I don't step on any toes here... This is my Death Star Trench Run based on the Singapore rules with some tweaking to make it more cinematic. These are based on rules made by Seldom on the FFG forum. These are the Stay on Target tokens.
12 Maneuvers Wave 1-6
This is a single page with all maneuvers excluding the epic ships. Change log: 27.03.2015 - Deleted the 2nd page of the previous version, which was added by accident. Sorry for that...
8 X-Wing Ship Maneuver Card (Custom Created including Scum)
When Scum released I couldn't find a nice card sized maneuver cheat sheet so I created one! One side has Imperial and Scum, the other has all the Rebel ships, excluding the epics. I have also included an alternate Rebel side which has a stripe with the faction logos down the side in order to keep the sizing the same for every ship. the original option for Rebels allows for them to be slightly larger since there are only 9 ships on that side of the card as opposed to 12 on the Imperial/Scum side. Cut them out and Enjoy!!! I used some designs and images I found here and elsewhere and used Paint and Word to actually bring the images together and size then properly. I don't know all the technical fixes, but if you have issues with printing you may need to make sure you are not...
16 X-Wing Ship Guide
This one page ship guide includes all of the small and large ships released to date. It shows all possible movements, attributes, actions and ship cost. The number in square brackets next to the name is the wave that it was released in. There is an online version here: See the BGG thread here:
6 X-Wing Wave 6 Maneuver Cards (Scum & Villainy)
FIXED version. I know these exist in other forms already. I just wanted to make available some high resolution, full size versions to match the cards that some might have already printed. The file includes all of the new ships, plus Scum & Villainy maneuver cards for existing ships (HWK, Y-Wing, Z95, Firespray). Imagery isn't perfect, but does the job nicely. As always, you can upload these to Printer Studio and the card back that I specifically created for Scum & Villainy (there are several styles of card backs, but the one I made is inspired by the ones I printed): [ImageID=2441454] Hope this is useful to those looking for these cards but being unable to find them to match ones already printed.
3 Template for custom made game tokens
I had these markers custom made, because I wanted markers very similar to the originals but having a distinguishable colour and being from sturdy material. If you like the design, this file contains everything you need to create your own tokens: vector paths for producing the custom tokens and images of the final product.
