Here's a tactical dogfighting game for Star Wars fans. It puts you in deep space, and gives you the opportunity to... blow each other up. You start out with an X-Wing and two Tie Fighters, move dials, move templates, ship and pilot cards, dice, a weapon range ruler, some obstacle markers, some tokens, and that's about it.

First, one thing that sets this game apart is that there's no board. You play on whatever tabletop you have available. That can give you a very wide area to play in. It can mean some long-distance chases. It also means that you can introduce your own obstacles, if you want. (The set includes a number of asteroid obstacles, but it could be fun to add your own objects for planet size interference, etc.)

Game play occurs in 5 phases:

1. Planning. Players dial in a move in the ship's movement dial and lay it face down by the ship. Every ship has a different movement dial, which gives it different maneuvering characteristics. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses.

2. Activation phase. The ships are moved according to the movement dial following a set order. A template -- basically, a curved or straight rectangle -- is available for each maneuver. This indicates where the ship ends up at the end of its phase. (This is where pilots try to outwit each other. Guessing and second guessing -- like paper-rock-scissors on steroids.)

3. Combat phase. Pilots that have others in their sights may fire on them. There are firing arc markers on the ship bases and a weapon range ruler to determine the possibility and accuracy for a shot. Players firing roll firing dice. Players being shot at role defense dice. This is where ships take damage and blow up.

4. End phase.

I have two core sets, and three expansions purchased thus far, and I'm simply loving this game. My kids and I (11 and 12) find ourselves playing several times a week. It is not overtly complicated, and has two sets of rules you can play with. A very simple set to help younglings or new players ease into its combat, then a more advanced set of rules that allow for even more dynamic battles and fun. This game has a lot of potential, and with the Millennium Falcon, Slave 1, A-Wings and Tie Interceptors already coming out this holiday, this thing is going to be a blast. I can't imagine what its going to be like when an Imperial Star Destroyer finally hits the market. Surely those things are in the works.

One of the major negatives is the price. Here, at Amazon, it sits at a good price point, elsewhere, its 10 to 15 dollars more expensive. Buying this game on-line is the way to go. I would recommend picking up the core set (probably an additional one too) and pick up at least one each of the expansions. Fantasy Flight games does a wonderful job explaining the rules, packaging their sets, and giving you plenty bang for your buck. These guys are the Porsche of board games. You can't go wrong with this. It is simply addicting.

If you love star wars and table top gaming, you'll love this game. Great quality, easy to learn rules and beautiful ship models. The game needs to be played on a 3 x 3 surface, preferably cloth so models don't slide around. Sadly, no game mat is included or available. I went to wal mart and bought a 3 x 3 piece of black cloth for $3.50. Couldn't find night sky star field fabric in my area :-( hopefully you can. Its an awesome game set in an awesome universe. Go buy it, you'll like this one alot. Check out fantasy flight games site to check it out. I believe you can read over the rule book. Enjoy :-D

I must admit, for the record, I am a Star Wars fan. I also love miniature games.

The problem I have found in so many mini games is that they are either too complex or too simplistic. They miss that elusive mark of 'fun' for me and my boys. In my opinion this game hits the mark, its a 'Goldilocks' style of game, not to simple, not to complex, it is just right.

My almost 10 year old son and I have a blast playing together. We can wrap-up most games in under an hour, sometimes close to 30 minutes if we keep the squads small.

The X-wing's wing mounted laser cannons are very fragile, but the tie fighters are strong enough. I wouldn't let my 5 year old play with any of them, but he has had the Y-wing for six months and it is still in one piece.

There is a very active online community that generates missions, scenarios and is very helpful and cordial when it comes to newbie's questions and confusions. You should be able to find plenty of support material to keep the game fresh for some time to come.

The miniatures themselves look great. Their proportions look spot-on, except for the tie fighter, to me it seems a tad too large. The paintjobs on the X-wing, Tie and Y-wing look fantastic.

So far the game seems reasonably balanced. At first I was concerned that the tie fighter's agility and barrel roll maneuvers would out class the X-wing but as of six games played it seems to be a pretty fair fight once you get some of the special abilities and weapons on the Rebel ships.

I am waiting for my second Core Set as I write this and I am dying to purchase the Falcon, the Tie Interceptor and every other ship they produce. It is simply a very fun game.
