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.
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?
RELEASE DATE: 2/2/17!!!!

Hello fellow Geeks-
Unfortunately, I have sad news. Drewe Henley, the gentleman who played Garven Dreis, aka Red Leader, passed away last month.
Recently, while at the Retro Gaming Expo, J Cody’s wife Sarah and I were checking out a 6″ Black Series Captain Phasma and she told me an amusing anecdote. Their son, Everett, who hasn’t seen episode 7 yet, found out that Captain Phasma is female and freaked out!
“You can’t have girl stormtroopers, Mom, ‘cuz all stormtroopers are clones!!!”
Well, young Everett, I have something to show you…
