Target has the core set of X-Wing on sale this week for $30. When you factor in shipping and such that's probably a decent deal for someone who wants to try it out, or fill their ranks with another core set. Plus there's the instant-gratification factor as well

Ooo Target had a coupon in their toy book that was $5 off any $19 or higher Star Wars toy. I sure hope this counts. Coupon doesn't expire until 11/21/12.

I thought I heard a Target employee mention something about stores honoring their online prices. Not 100% about this, but it would be worth asking in store.

The coupon works, or doesn't, sometimes. It depends on the store or the cashier. Mine did not work until I was ready to walk out of the store, and then the manager or whatever put in his code and gave me a "non-coupon $5 discount for coming all the way down to the store." He said it was just supposed to be for "Star Wars toys, not games." Other folks have said they had zero problems. So, each experience may be different. The $5 coupon is good until 11/21, but the $10 off sale is over on 11/17.

yep, but no hang-overs... not sure about the "guilt" feeling though (not telling the wife about another core set).... one for the road?

seriously, i don't mind spending on another core set (cheaper way if you want to build a squadron of TIE fighters, rather than buying the TIE expansion pack) as it's toys for the big boys. you have bonding time with your kids, and the hobby will pay for itself in the long run. besides, even if it doesn't, the time spent with your family and friends are priceless.

Oh yeah, I was joking for sure - alcoholism is much more damaging than board game addiction. Its like FFG has tapped into something hard-wired in my subconscious with this X-Wing game. I simply enjoy it too much. I have no regrets buying the game at all and everyone I have played with loves it. Its just my wife thinks that the $$ could be spent somewhere 'more productive' is all. She thinks I have more than enough games already! laugh

It seems you won't need the coupon. Just ask about it at the register. They should have a copy in the drawer that they can scan. And again, you can get 4 Star Wars things and get $5 off each one as long as each is $19 or more. Good luck!

EDIT: Reminder: the $10 off sale on the X-Wing game itself ends on the 17th, though the coupon is good until the 21st.
