  1. I'm not even sure what the other promo cards are, but I happen to have an extra Han Solo/Boba Fett double-sided oversized card, and would like to trade for whatever other cards there are... I have the Ten Numb from the recent/ongoing Store Championship. Is there a list out there of what else is available? Either reply or PM if interested in a trade... Thanks!
  2. great! thanks for all the good pointers. As for the rebel build, I understand Ten was a point sink. I was mostly just trying out the newest ship I had bought, and thought the trick of denying defense dice was neat. From your points I can see how its not necessarily a 'tournament' build as is. Also, I had never thought of the 33 magic number concept. And the swapping out of Stealth for a second Push the Limits makes sense, as the hope is that Soontir escapes targeting more often than not, so the extra defense die isnt as important as making both Interceptors harder to get a bead on in the first place. I'll be sure to read over some other build lists to get other ideas, but this is all very helpful!
  3. So, I'll start out with saying I've only played probably 10 or fewer games overall, so I don't have any expection more than having fun at my store's event this weekend. I played a couple games this past weekend with the B-Wing, and thought I'd try a build surrounding Ten Numb: Ten Numb B-WIng + Autoblaster + Fire-Control System Biggs X-Wing + R2-F2 A-Wing Prototype Pilot x2 =100 points Strategy would just be to get Ten in there at close range blowing stuff up with his power and autoblaster pretty much denying defense dice. Biggs to take the targets away from him with the Droid giving him a defense bump. Awings for nuisance mostly. I know I could use r2d2 for the shield regen, but i really like the fire control system constantly adding a target lock and feel like the extra defense die would serve the same purpose of prolonging his life. This weekend I had played Advanced Sensors on the BWing, which was helpful too, but it didnt make it onto this build... A second build was to try out some imperials (which I haven't played in months). I played against Soontir Fel with Push the Limits recently, so thought of building around that... Soontir Fel Interceptor + PTL + Stealth Device (should have 4 defense die, and always have a focus token) Turr Phenir Interceptor (free moves after shooting is good) Howlrunner TIE Academy Pilot TIE x2 =100 Any thoughts on either build? I am geting the Slave I this week, but I haven't really looked into its abilities. I've read some build threads on here though with that being a big part of teams.
  4. Sorry, no. I play softball in DC with work colleagues on Wednesdays. May be interested in something on 8th/9th weekend in June…
  5. I'm in the Wheaton, MD area, so pretty close to Dream Wizards. I could possibly do Saturday as well, not totally sure. The wife may want to do something that day.
  6. Anyone interested in playing in Rockville on Sunday, May 26? I am interested in playing a game or two around noonish time. I think others are playing out in Chantilly, VA, but I just dont see myself making it out that far. Please let me know if you're interested!
  7. Just bumping again. There were probably 8-10 people there last week.
  8. Just bumping the thread for folks to see. I signed up for the league when I was in the store this past weekend playing a different game. Hopefully I'll actually be able to make it this Wednesday, now that I already paid!
  9. Any of you guys interested in playing XWing this Saturday morning at Dream Wizards? Their online calendar says nothing but Magic pre-release, so we may want to check to see taht they'd have one table worth space for a game. I know some of their card tournaments fill the store… But I finally have a chance to play, and it should be any easy win for someone as it would be my first game.
  10. I saw that Dream Wizards is open tomorrow (Monday, 21st) 11-5, and I would be free to play. What time is the Chatilly game? I dont really want to drive out that far, but could play at Dream Wizards if either Jetsetter or tacticalbastrd (or others) are interested.
  11. This Saturday should work for me (8th). The earlier in the day the better, 11am/noonish. I dont know yet if I will be able to make it to the Kessel Run event next weekend, but I'll try to.
  12. JGSGames, looks like this Wednesday is no good. I dont think leaving the wife alone the night before we host people for thanksgiving would be my best idea… Next week should be fine though.
  13. So after talking to one of the guys at Dream Wizards, he mentioned that there had occasionally been a couple of people on Wednesday nights playing, but nothing regular. He mentioned that there is always space in the store on Wednesday nights, as it is miniatures night (as posted on their website's calendar). He also said that it might be possible to add a more official tournament on Saturdays, but Sundays are not available. I forgot to ask if they signed up to run the Kessel Run event… I play Heroclix every other Saturday, so would be happy to start playing X-Wing directly after (heroclix ends by 430) or could try to start playing regularly on Wednesday nights at the store. I work downtown DC so I would probably only be able to get to the place around 7 at the earliest. Maybe we could try to get a Saturday game on their calendar once a month or so? And maybe play casual games on Wednesdays (once or twice a month). I might be able to play this Wednesday, but am hosting family for Thanksgiving the next day so may find myself busy. -Tony
  14. JGSGames said: Mondays and Wednesdays are usually my best weeknights, but weekends aren't bad either. My current gaming group are mostly boardgamers, but I might be able to round up a couple more folks for a demo if the goal is to create more players. I have two starters plus a half dozen or so expansions, so we could outift a few people. Well I guess I kinda hijacked GeekZap's thread as I started focusing on Rockville. But I just wanted to say I should be at Dream Wizards this Saturday for another game, and I can ask about when we might set up a time to play/demo X-Wing. I know the store is closed on Mondays though, so we may be narrowed down to Wednesday or the weekend. Dunno how people normally demo the game, but we could always use the introductory rules the first time or two if we ever get something set up.
  15. I just emailed one of the guys at the store about the kessel run event. Id be up for playing a game soon, I just picked up the starter and each of the Imperial boosters. I think the stores calendar says Wednesday nights for miniatures but could schedule a different night I'm sure. I work downtown dc so couldn't get to the store before 7 on weeks nights. Weekends are better and I play heroclix there pretty often already. JGSGames said: I'm ten minutes from Dream Wizards - we should try to get a demo or open play evening together.
  16. I've been looking for a place to play around rockville. I play heroclix at Dream Wizards, so next time I'm there I'll ask if anyone's playing X-Wing, or if they'd be interested in letting me start something there. Not much better for you than NoVa, but its a fairly quick drive from Frederick…
  17. DId you ever get any other response about playing at Dream Wizards in Rockville? I'd be interested in playing. So far I've only picked up one Advanced TIE Booster, and not the whole game yet. I play Heroclix at that store, and it's pretty close to me, so I'd be interested in setting something up.
  18. NOTE: sorry, didnt go back far enough through the forum to see there was another Maryland players thread. please post in that thread… A mod can close this thread if desired. I've seen the thread about Northern VA players, but I'm north of DC in the Rockville/Silver Spring area. Anyone interested in playing in MD? There's a store in Rockville called Dream Wizards that usually has a lot of tables (usually full of card players). A store up in Savage, MD called A Family Game Store also has a lot of game space…
