I had a question that I was hoping someone on the forum or from FFG could answer:
Having never played a tabletop miniatures game before to any real extent (demos notwithstanding), I've been "iffy" on getting into X-wing upon release, and it has come down for the most part to a question of assumed cost.
From what I'm seeing on the website presently, the starter set comes with a total of three ships, one X-wing for the Rebels and two standard TIE fighters for the Imperials. When we toss in one of each expansion, that adds one more X-wing, one Y-wing, one more TIE fighter, and one TIE Advanced.
Once an extra set of dice are factored in, that's base cost of about $108 for a total of seven ships (3 Rebel, 4 Imperial).
How many starfighters are the expected/intended number for playing the game beyond the starter set? If there is a given playing surface, how many is it designed to accommodate?
