Hi there, everyone. A little background first. I've gotten tired of random collectible games, so I am liquidating my Magic collection and buying heavily into X-Wing. I'm trying to figure out where to go with my collection as to even things out. Here's what I have presently:

The Force Awakens Two-player Starter

Imperial Aces

Imperial Veterans

Inquisitor's TIE

Millennium Falcon

Star Viper

Punishing One

I'm adding the Tantive IV and Imperial Raider shortly. I'm thing that I would like to add Rebel Aces, Slave I, and the Most Wanted box. I know I'll need more Rebels at the least, and that I'm pretty heavy on Empire.

Any suggestions are fully welcome.

Hi, Bill: welcome to BGG!

I would add two IG 2000s or at least one. Comes with cool tokens for customizing your games and the expansion has a great three player scenario using said tokens. Great expansion.

Depends if you are looking for a balance of the factions or if you want 1 in particular. An eBay job lot would save you cash in the long run. Do you have buddies into as well and what do they use.

There are some people in my local area that are selling, for what it's worth.

I do encourage picking up a used lot as it's usually a good deal and a nice starting point.

Alrighty, thanks everyone! I'll definitely give lots a look, but as I'm currently trading in Magic cards for store credit at my FLGS, that might be something for later. I just picked up the Imperial Raider with credit, and wow, both Palpatine and Tarkin seem besstly.

Always get a second core. For the money it adds dice, extra ships and tokens. A great bargain actually.


Welcome

I'm surprised this has not mentioned multiple times.

Pick up a second core set. For you, I recommend getting the normal X-Wing Core Set since you already have the X-Wing The Force Awakens Core Set.

If you end up buying a large X-Wing collection from someone, then chances are you do not need that second core set.

I probably wouldn't be picking up a lot any time soon. Money is wrapped up in paying off some bills, but my FLGS takes my Magic cards for credit, lol.

But after checking some lots on ebay, I wish that I could.

Some the Target Stores have the core on sale. Worth a look.

Dollar for dollar a second core is the way to go before expanding else where.

As for the rebels you'll get 1 B-wing with the aces, but I'd recommend 1 or 2 more B-wings, the cheap pilots are some of the most efficient point spend in the game.

If you are looking to pick up a single ship or two see if google express is available in your area. If it is you can get $15 off your first purchase, and free shipping if you sign up for a free 3 month trial. See below for the coupon code.

$15 off first google express order: WCD3U753X

Good luck, and welcome to the addiction!
