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.
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.
I was struggling with what I wanted run and decided, “hey, who cares how I do…why not just run a Firespray?!?”
So I did!
If you thought saying goodbye to Party-Girl Manaroo (and hello to modestly-dressed-but-still-good-looking Manaroo) was drama enough, we’ve now got X-Wing Wave 11 coming down the pipe!
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?

I mean…well…that was going to be more dramatic, but if you’re looking this post, you’ve already seen the image on top…spoilers…I guess…damnit…c’mon Cody, dramatize better…
