  1. Good point, I forgot about the riders legs.
  2. I think the numbers should reflect a mixture of what people generally run and what people would have a minimum of if they bought at least one of everything. Right now I would be short an X-Wing because of my transport. Maybe they plan to include stuff in an epic conversion later but I see it as an annoying cash grab on there part. 3 Decimators is just silly.
  3. This made me think of a silly fix idea. When the Punisher gets destroyed (note the use of WHEN, not IF) it may immediately (regardless of pilot skill) fire all of its ordinance (including action bombs).
  4. Perfect! That's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you! I opened my Streets of Arkham the other days and thought "with these tiles they could do a second map for Innsmouth". This got me looking (and failing) but now I have what I was after and sure enough Innsmouth gets a second map from Streets.
  5. So I've been able to find the number of map layout variants that there were at the start but I can't find an up to date list that includes any of the expansions. Does anyone have the current information of how many map variations there are for each scenario? I've heard some have more now that new expansions have added tiles.
  6. I forgot about this post but am glad to hear that the tiles have more use than just the two scenarios included with them. Thanks for answering.
  7. Hello, recently I bought a copy of Beyond the Threshold (got it on sale too). This got me wondering since I haven't tried it out yet if any of the new tiles show up in older scenarios. I've heard the Thrall and the cards do but have found nothing saying if the Tiles have been added into additional maps or anything.

    C-Roc update?

    That crossed my mind but it would cost less to just admit you screwed up and FAQ it. Or even just print of cards, put em in sticky sealed sleeves and slap em to the side of the sealed packaging.

    C-Roc update?

    The imperials take property taxes very seriously.

    C-Roc update?

    Perhaps it was supposed to jump into the shipping now category but someone made a mistake? I was hoping on Monday it would move up a category since the TIE Assessor article seemed like a good indication that the C-Roc was about ready to go. Didn't notice the date change though when I saw it still on the boat. I hope someone at FFG is just being a fool and 5/23 isn't the date for it actually starting on the boat and the earlier date was just to keep people thinking it was going to come out on time.

    Blind X-Wing

    I figured it wasn't an original idea by any means but wanted to know the problems people might have encountered or if it was any fun or not. Already I have thought of ways to refine my method thanks to the replies I have so far.

    Blind X-Wing

    Hmm, the DM screen is a good idea. Maybe instead of having the cards face down and then flipped up you just never show them ever. It would rely entirely on honesty but it would be like poker. Also if the opponent sees nothing of what you have then they don't even know if you have upgrades equipped or not. Certain upgrades are really obvious (like titles) and not being able to even see how many upgrades the opponent has would make it more challenging and more thematic.

    Blind X-Wing

    Yeah, I was worried the face down upgrades would cause that problem. The main idea came from trying to have it be more thematic. In Star Wars they don't show up and see that the enemy has Vader in a Tie Advance with Advanced Targeting Computer. Instead he comes from behind and mucks things up. If there was a way to hide pilots that would make it even more awesome but that would require custom parts and probably custom cards as anyone would be able to figure out who the hidden Pilot Skill 9 pilot is. Maybe blind escalation would solve that problem.

    Blind X-Wing

    Hello, I have an idea for how to play casual X-Wing that I think might be fun but don't have time to try myself (I'm still trying to fly each of my ships at least once). So instead I will run it by all of you and see what you think. I have yet to see anyone suggest playing like this but if they have than hopefully someone can tell me if it was fun or not. Also if anyone wants to try this and let me know if it adds a fun element to the game that would be awesome. So here is my concept: In Blind X-Wing you don't know what you are up against until it hits you. All cards would be face down until they are in use. This would add a layer of bluffing to the game and may make ships that see less play more useful. There are also a few other changes to encourage bluffing. An example of how the game would play out would be something like this: Both players make squads up to 100 points but does not reveal the ships or the pilots. Players declare their point amounts. A player may mention any point amount between 100 and their actual point value. So if one player has 98 points they can say 98, 99 or 100. When initiative is established they put down asteroids as usual. For placing ships the player with initiative puts down his 1st pilot skill 1 ship and reveals the pilot (if veteran instincts is used it is to be revealed as well though this wouldn't happen for Pilot Skill 1). If the player doesn't have any pilot skill 1 ships the player can either pass or place a higher Pilot instead if the player chooses. Then the opponent does the same thing and they go back and forth until they are done placing pilot skill 1 ships or ships they wish to place early. When a player passes they cannot place another ship until placing the next pilot skill. If hyperwave com scanner is used it needs to be revealed when it comes into play. If used for 0 pilot skill then it has to be mentioned before the pilot skill 1 ships are placed. This continues until all Pilot skills are placed and all pilots revealed. Then you play as usual but don't reveal upgrades until they come into play. This can make bluffing a bigger part of the game as you could be flying a y-wing with a mystery turret that your opponent assumes is a twin laser turret but is actually an autoblaster turret. He flies into range one and instead of being in the donut he is in range for unblockable hits. I think this would be fun and would encourage weirder lists as bringing the same thing as everyone else will make you very predictable.
