Tabletop Thursday – Star Wars X-Wing

Posted by on Aug 8, 2013 in Games/Video/Board, Web Shows | 1 comment

Yay, new Tabletop! And it’s funny and engaging.

I get the impression from how this game is edited that the game takes a REALLY LONG TIME to play. The premise appears to be cooperative teams who play Empire or Rebel Alliance against each other. To be honest, it reminded me a lot of the ancient game Starfleet Battles — but that’s Star Trek (and far more complex) and not Star Wars.

Seth Green is funny and understated in that way I get the impression he always is. His wife, Clare Grant, is highly competitive. Mike Lamond (who I didn’t know before this episode) tries his best to keep Wil on task and focused on the game. Seth and Wil’s impressions of various characters from Star Wars are worth watching this episode alone.

  1. I have been interested in this game for a while so I’m glad I got to play it as well as see the TableTop crew tackle it.

    I was able to play Star Wars X-Wing a few weeks ago with just one other person. It was a little boring. Mechanics were fine. I think it would be fun with a large number of people, 6+, or with more minis on the playfield.

    They have most of the TIE ships, X-Wings, Y-Wings, and A-Wings. I believe the B-Wing “expansion” is coming soon as well. I loved the B-Wing for some reason.

    Also, Target was apparently discouting their stock of this game. Guess I need to run out there and check on it…
