Some Dirty (but Legal!) X-Wing Tricks

X-Wing started out as a dogfighting game; bluff, out-position, and out-dice your opponents.  However, as more content gets pumped into the game, the design space is opening up.  This allows players to employ disruptive and unorthodox tactics that can catch their opponents off-guard.

There’s really no substitute for the feeling you get when you do something perfectly legal that your opponent hadn’t anticipated. There are some dirty X-Wing tricks out there, and I’m going to share some of the ones I know.

Cody C Brings a Firespray to the Fresno X-Wing Regional!

Hey X-Wing Players-

Earlier this month, I attended the Fresno X-Wing Regional at Crazy Squirrel Games.  Last year was a great event, so I was eager to attend again.

An Epic X-Wing Game and an Epic Story

Hello Pilots!

While X-Wing is dominated by the 100-Point Tournament format, I always like to make time for the occasional Epic match.  My usual partner, John D, coerced me out of hiding to come down to Game Empire for a 300v300 point game.

Turns out, it was quite the “epic” game indeed and makes for a fun little story.  Below will be a play-by-play, as well as a short narrative of the dogfight from an in-universe perspective.  Haha, cheesy I know, but hey, isn’t that the whole point?

Need a cheap gaming headset? Have some earbuds lying around?

Cody C’s devious plan to suck Gio and myself into XCOM2 has of course succeeded. It’s rapidly climbing to the top of my most-played list on Steam.
