I actually created a big list for the wife and family to give me for Christmas. So I got 2 Cores, X-wing, Tie Fighter, 2x Tie Interceptors, 2x A-wings, 2x Y-Wings, Tie Adv, Tie Bomb, Falcon, and Shuttle all at the same time. It was all in a big box they put together and it was pretty amazing. Spent hours sorting tokens, sleeving cards, and assembling dials that night.
That was almost the same thing that happened to me. I was out shopping for something, anything, to get for my adult stepson, and saw the coolest small miniature of the Falcon at B&N. When I looked at the box I realized it was a game!
Wheee!!! ... Wait... Does the stepson even like to play games? I dunno...
So I went home and described my dilemma to my wife and how cool I thought the game was but couldn't talk myself into getting a starter set for him because I had no idea if he would even play it.
So she bought one of every ship, including a starter set, at B&N except for the Slave-1 and Shuttle (gasp, I know Sable!). She had them all in a big box too. And I spent the rest of the day happily punching out tokens and reading the rules. Pew! pew!
