My son's birthday is coming up Nov. 1. Normally, I'd wait until Oct. 31 to buy his present, but with X-Wing, I knew I had to buy it early and often, not wanting to miss out on what will be the coolest game I add to my collec-, err.. coolest birthday present ever for my son. He's a huge Star Wars fan. Deep down, I'm a huge-er fan, going back to my childhood.

So now I have 2 Core Sets at home, with one opened so I could read the rules, plus 1 of each expansion coming on Friday. His birthday is over a month away. And every moment of every day, I want to pull those minis out and start flying them around. It's pure torture! I'm not sure I can make it to November 1st!!!!

I can't even think about the OCD-seizue I'm going to have when my son and his friends start playing with them... It's his present... his... those hair-thin X-Wing laser cannons won't break that easily, right??

We don't stop playing when we get old, but we get old when we stop playing.

As a good dad you should get a full session in before his birthday.

I'll bet you can find somebody who will let you borrow their table for a test game.

When they are unwrapped he won't even notice the missing plastic wrap

Have fun

I feel your pain. I've been told that I "should" wait until my birthday (November 14) to get the game. UGH! It's killing me!

At least I got to play a friend's copy (it's awesome) - but in some ways that's worse cuz now I want to play it more!

Yep, only one solution. Get another set and play secretly, curtains drawn, under the blanket.
