There seems to be an interesting mix; as might be expected given the franchise and I wonder if the game will bring Star Wars Fans into the world of BGG and gaming.

Poll
This is not intended to be comprehensive - it's for fans of the game only and there's no sitting on the fence; when it comes to X-Wing MG do you consider yourself primarally a gamer or a Star Wars fan?
I'm a gamer who sees a good game, and it's Star Wars so, bonus!
I'm a Star Wars fan, I'm not so much bothered about other games.

I'm a gamer, but I would never have bought this game unless it was Star Wars.

It is very unlikely that people who are not a fan of other games will ever see this poll...

This is will be the typical reply to this poll.

Most users of this site have at least marginal knowledge of the original game. So, if they did not take the plunge with that and are taking it with this, then it probably is because of the star wars logo...

Great, if somewhat sleazy, move by FFG. This will be a money cow.

+1

I've never been even remotely interested in Wings of War, but this game has caught me hook line and sinker. Partly because the mechanics play so well, but mostly because it does Star Wars so well. I can't wait for 2nd Wave.

How about a 'Wings of War flopped with your group, therefore you're not going to risk buying into this game, even though you're a fan' option?

What age was the group may I ask? I had some trouble with the younger 20 somethings. May be a WW1 history thing I fear.
