  1. I know that. I've worked in retail of various kinds for over 30 years, so I understand how stores work. However, with this gaming shop, over half the footprint of the store is gaming tables already. There will be no extra staff at all and I could guarantee that 100%. It's not how they do things. They expect the community to run the events, and the staff sit behind the desk to collect the "fees".
  2. That's the thing. These aren't for tournaments. Just for the regular weekly casual play nights. I don't disagree that there's space and all that being used in the store. However, we play there on our regular night regardless if there's the Open Play kits or not. Adding the OP kits will have an entirely zero impact on any other space or game events. None. Nada. Zip. On our nights, there's several tables of X-wing/Armada/Legion/whatever on the big 6'x4' game tables, and a few tables of D&D playing. Beyond that, half the gaming tables are empty.
  3. I'm having a personal issue here. I've been asked by a local store owner to oversee/run the 2019 Open Play kits for X-Wing, Armada, Legion, and Imperial Assault (yes, we have players for all of them but there's a bunch of overlap). This is good. I like the idea of these kits. However, the store owner also wants to charge entry fees for anyone taking part with them. Nothing steep, but the fact that they wanted to even charge a fee at all kind of caught me off-guard. I was under the belief that these are purely meant for encouraging people to play the games in the shop and the idea of charging for them seems... petty? Am I wrong here?
  4. Because in product distribution, we're already well inside the "OMG Christmas is coming" window for product releases. Anything that's dropping in Q4 2019 better start getting hyped right now to ensure it has a strong sales presence for the seasonal buying frenzy. Or, just because. Your choice.
  5. Somewhere in the panel discussion today, I was told (ie: haven't had time to listen to it all myself) that when FFG was asked about IA, all that they said is that there's nothing in the production plan at all for IA. So take it as you will. I haven't confirmed it yet nor do I have the exact quote. But as it stands, IA appears to be as close to dead without it being announced as is possible.

  7. R4-P44 works well with Caibrated Laser Targeting in the Delta.
  8. If we didn't need to go through the Reload steps, it's just say "Recover a charge" which it does not.
  9. If I have a limited ship between two other ships, both of which have Dedicated on them, can I Strain both of the Dedicated ships so that the limited ship can then reroll two defense dice?
  10. Personally, as this question is coming up for a local tournament (but I'm neither Marshal nor Judge there), I'd cite this from the Legal Products and Substitution section of the current Tournament Rules: "All X-Wing Second Edition essential components are legal for Standard Play—including official promotional tools such as maneuver tools." Obstacles are considered essential components, so if I were doing it, I'd allow it. I realize there are other sections that are more specific about squad building, but I'd suggest that the section I've cited would overrule it. But hey... that's why I'm not the marshal or judge!
  11. Someone is OOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDDD.
  12. Yup. This is exactly the same thought I had too when i was opening. It's a crap load of single use plastic.
  13. So our local FLGS has been offered a Rallypoint Qualifier for 2019. Yay, right? Except... no one seems know to what this is other than some kind of regional event. FFG OP said in April 2018 and September 2018 that information will be "coming soon" about them, but from what I can find it's been total silence since. Without any details, it's kind of hard to fit it into a schedule of any kind. Does anyone have any more specific information about what it entails or what the FLGS may need to host it successfully?
