  1. I received a few PMs asking if there will be a heX-Wing 2.0. Short answer is that we will have to wait and see. Yes, the movement fundamentals will be the same, but there are a few new features in 2.0 that will need to be considered. I originally created heX-Wing to keep my friend interested in the game. He hated the "fiddly nature" of the game so much that he was going to burn his game! To prevent this, I had to come up with a solution, so back in December, 2012, heX-Wing began to take shape. No pun intended. If someone told me at the time that converting the game to use hexes was going to be popular with many players, I would have been surprised. However, if you think about it, I guess I shouldn't be surprised because there are a lot of advantages to using hexes. For one thing, the speed of play is increased dramatically, accidentally bumping ships out of place is a thing of the past, and the overall "fiddly nature" my friend complained about is completely removed from the game. Also, there are many other advantages including how easy it is to play heX-Wing by chat, e-mail, text messaging, Skype, phone and so on. Even more interesting are the added features others have created. For example, the hidden movement or double blind movement idea the heX-Wing fans have developed.

    X-Wing 2.0 - batteries required.

    I would think FFG would make this feature a must. We certainly hope. That being said, it has not been officially announced that it will have this feature. Edit: RedHotDice beat me to the app reply by 20 seconds.

    Most people do not carry around printers in there back pocket. Especially for pick-up games. A pick-up game is a game that has been spontaneously started by 2 or more players.

    X-Wing 2.0 - batteries required.

    I just realized something. Pick-up games might be more difficult with X-Wing 2.0. Especially if you do not have a computer or smartphone handy. Yesterday my friend and I decided to play X-Wing. We didn't plan this (pick-up game), but we just happened to have our X-Wing materials with us. While we were setting up and creating our 100 point force, it occurred to us that pick-up games might not be as easy with X-Wing 2.0 because batteries are required. When I say batteries, I mean a computer or smartphone that uses batteries, and of course, you will also need the X-Wing App. I guess these days almost everyone has a smartphone or something, but did they charge the battery?

    Jay Little, the original game designer.

    I looked at FFG's site and a few of the more popular websites/forums, but I could not find any online chats and/or video interviews with the original designer of X-Wing. I was just curious what the original designer thought of all the changes, and if he had any input or influence with the development of 2.0.

    How many 1.0 maneuver dials can be used with 2.0?

    That is just silly! Is the FFG police going to kick down the doors of gaming clubs and arrest the lot? No. The ones that are not changed will be okay to use if players want to use them. They will probably not let you use them for official FFG tournaments.
  8. How does Jay Little feel about X-Wing 2.0?

    How many 1.0 maneuver dials can be used with 2.0?

    FFG did their unboxing for all three Conversion Kits. I missed it because of work, but I plan to watch the unboxing if and when FFG adds it to their website, or when fans put the video(s) up on YouTube. I'm pretty sure a lot of fans watched this unboxing. Did anyone take notes about the ship's maneuver dials? Long story short, except for that green is now blue, which maneuver dials from X-Wing 1.0 are still exactly the same as X-Wing 2.0? We can start a list of those dials. This can be useful for fans that have a lot of 1.0 ship miniatures. More than four TIE-Fighters for example - did they change the final number of TIE-Fighter dials that you get with the Conversion Kit?
  10. Do you know what the biggest difference between 1.0 and 2.0 will be? The 2.0 miniatures will be twice as big! 😄😄 I'm just joking. 😄😄

    Special rules for S-Foils.

    Surprising news... for me this is new. Some of you might already know this, but did you know that you can have a B-Wing with articulating S-Foils? https://www.shapeways.com/product/M336ALXAH/4-pack-b-wing-s-foil-hinge Has anyone "Turn your factory stock B-Wing into the ship it was meant to be" using these parts on one of their B-Wings? If so, is it something you recommend?

    Special rules for S-Foils.

    We all know that the S-Foils upgrade was added to the X-Wing to beef up this iconic star-fighter, but should other ships that have S-Foils (such as the B-Wing) also have special S-Foil rules?

    The X-Wing's articulating S-Foils.

    If you think the X-Wing's articulating S-Foils are pretty cool, you are going to go crazy when you see the articulating winglets of the ARC-170. 🤔

    The X-Wing's articulating S-Foils.

    And we already know that we are going to hear, "Lock S-Foils in attack position" in every game with a 2.0 X-Wing.
