Every gaming community has its share of people who take their game way too seriously. In my experience, the X-wing community has an extremely low percentage of these people as compared to other gaming communities. Instead, I have found this community understands that this is a game. We play this game to have fun and to share our experiences with others.

Those of us who share this philosophy have adopted the mantra of "Fly casual", as a reminder to have fun and enjoy the game, win or lose.

I decided to ask a personal friend of mine, Jack Irons (Ironlightsaber) to design a t-shirt with this slogan on it. He is an artist and works at a company that makes t-shirts. He designed a shirt specifically for the X-wing community.

If you search the web, you will find that there are companies that have made "Keep Calm and Fly Casual" shirts as well, but this one was made specifically for us.

So, if you would like one of these shirts, please go onto the store website and order one.

http://www.shirts101.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=shirts1...

Women's tank tops are available as well. Unfortunately international orders must be handled over the phone. I apologize for that, but those are the hoops that we have to jump through.

The website is only going to be open until October 7th at noon (CST), so please hurry if you or your play group members want one.

I would personally like to see many of these at Worlds this year, as a reminder to all that this game is about having fun, even at the most competitive X-wing tournament to date. If you are unable to attend Worlds, you can absolutely still order one, but I would really like to see us all making a statement there.

We have an amazing community, and this is just one way of expressing to others just how great it is.

And for the record, I'm not making a dime on any of this. I'll be buying some as well.

Is there any way to add Pay Pal payment to the web site?

Could he/you take a personal Pay Pal payment for a shirt.

Love them and thanks for sharing!

I don't have any control over the business aspect of it. I can mention it to him, but they have done a lot of business to this point, apparently without paypal, so I doubt they will change, but I'll mention it.

You have to call the company to find out and place an order. The phone number is given on the ordering website.

Just a reminder, the ordering site is only going to be open for another week. After that if you want a shirt, you're going to have to pay the iron price for it.

Yeah, but the iron price will probably ruin the tshirt. Such a catch 22!

As a reminder, the ordering website goes down tomorrow, so if you want one of these shirts, now is your last chance to get one.

I played in a tournament yesterday and kept imagining myself in this shirt when I reached points where I could be a rules stickler or just play a friendly, "fly casual" game (and managed to choose the latter every time, I think). I was accused of being a "nice guy" and it was said I play "very sportsman-like".

This definitely helped end a few sticky situations much more calmly than they could have and since I was the lead TO, that is a particularly good thing. Everyone had fun and it was the first tournament at one of my favorite FLGS's, so it was very cool that to a man everyone came up and said they'd love to do them a lot more often.

So, definitely looking forward to wearing my shirt at Worlds, but I might be looking forward to wearing it when demoing the game and acting as the tournament organizer even more - so I can help set a good tone for the local scene in Phoenix.

I do not like adding credit card info into sites like that, but I ordered one. I have not been active in the community for a while as I have been having other problems in my life at this time.

I would have liked to have been in the latest vassal tournament , but I do not have the time right now. I have not even picked up any wave 3 ships yet.

The shirts were shipped yesterday and this morning. I know there were over 50 shirts ordered. What a great turnout! Thanks to all, and hope to see you wearing them soon!
