 I'm in the same boat. I've got one each of the X-wing products on preorder and a separate preorder for SW:TCG, but now I'm considering cancelling the card game and getting a few more of these. At least one more Y-wing. Decisions, decisions.

I don't know if I'm concerned about the markers being two-sided.  Eventually you need more fighters to field more pilots, so you'd get more markers with the extra fighters you'd need to buy.  I have two starters and a single x-wing expansion coming, so I still don't have enough fighters to field all the expansion pilots.  You could always just make a color copy of the marker on cardstock so you could use both sides at the same time until you get more ships.

It's not a cause of concern really for me. It's really a matter of min-maxing what I get for my money. Since the X-Wing expansion also has cards that the base game supposedly doesn't, it makes sense to get two of them anyway. On the other hand, more than one base game makes sense for the added templates and dice. I think I'll find out what I really want, eventually

After reading the article through again, I've come to the conclusion that elite pilot talents are not restricted to Imperial or Rebel. Some of you probably already figured this out. The reason I think this is because Expert Handling says that you take a stress token only if you're ship does not already have Barrel Roll. Since TIEs are the only ones with Barrel Roll, it makes sense that this card can be played on Imperials as well.

Could be, but more nimble fighters in future releases (like the A-Wing) might have barrel roll.

However, what if the number markers are Skill/Initiative boost markers?  Maybe a card raises your skill (perm or temp)?  I see they seem to start at 10 and 11, so maybe only elite pilots can use it an it bumps you to 10 or 11 for a turn.  Other than that, I have no idea.

Interesting thought. The Y-wing expansion seems to come with 16's and 17's. I'm starting to think that each expansion comes with different numbers so that you can collect a whole numerical series. Awesome! And there are duplicates so you can trade with your friends and get the whole collection of numbers even if you don't buy all the expansions. Nice!

 But a number sequence for what purpose? Still for numbering ships?

 At this point I gotta believe that it is for numbering ships.  I wonder is there is a slot of something those numbers would fit into in the base.

 

Thanks,

To be collectible, of course! Who doesn't like counting from 10 to 20?

Okay, I admit, I was totally joking when I posted that last comment. I was debating whether or not to put "j/k" at the end of it. It's just weird to me that the numbers are ascending with each expansion they reveal.

And as to vadersson's comment, it could be that they are for numbering ships, but why would they start at 10 and not 1?

I agree with others: can't wait to read the rules!

Well, we haven't seen the full spread of components from the core set.  I suspect that 1-9 are in there.

 

I was hoping for rules over the Y-Wing preview actually, but… oh well.

 We really need to rules posted.  How soon is the GenCon tournament?  The sooner the rules are posted the sooner questions can be asked and answered ahead of the event.  Nothing rules a tournament like a  bad on the spot ruling.

 

Thanks,

Duncan
