  1. Interesting Video on Han Solo Gunner Card options
  2. @Hippie Moosen I regret posting here however I appreciate your response.
  3. @ TopHatGorilla You make some good points I cant say that I agree with them
  4. @ TopHatGorilla "Then my wife needed the table to do some planning for work, so our second game was on the floor" Hippie illustrates that he he only had one table big enough to play X-Wing miniatures on, once his wife used that table he was forced to play on the floor. This is the inherent issue with X-Wing at 1/270 scale. I play at a local game stores, However because of the popularity of the card games (Keyforge, MTG etc) The local game stores all use 30"x48" or 30"x72" tables, One game store will allow you to rearrange their tables into a 60"x72" table and one supplies a 48" piece of plywood board to place across the table to accommodate X-Wing Miniatures players if table space is available. If FFG produced a X-Wing Micro on a 24"x24" mat the game stores wound not have to make special accommodations for the game. Respectfully, Only a select group of employees at FFG know what FFG's costs are to produce the game and the profit they make from the game. I personally "Fly Casual" so playing it tournament version is not a criteria for me, as a consumer I would be much happier to have the option to purchase a "Micro" or a "Miniatures" size version of the game.
  5. @ Hippie Your post about moving from the table to the floor really illustrates the need for a smaller playing surface, The thread is about giving players the option to buy the same product in a different size, I don't see this as a negative for FFG, Companies often release products that directly compete with their own product line, Monopoly is a good example of this, there is well over 1000 different versions of the popular boardgame, FFG has an opportunity to expand their game into the table top market.
  6. You are correct, FFG made the decision to produce X-Wing at a specific scale (1/270) I am not suggesting FFG abandon the current format, I'm suggesting they consider producing X-Wing Micro at about 1/350 scale The trade off would be less detailed ships in favor of a more tabletop friendly format Think of it as Sheldon vs Young Sheldon “As we set out to design our miniatures and our game system, we needed to choose the scale of the game. Too big, and the game play would be unwieldy and take up too much space. Too small, and we’d lose unacceptable amounts of detail, and the models wouldn’t have the physical presence on the tabletop we were seeking. After creating a series of crude rapid prototypes in various sizes, we finally chose 1/270 as our final scale. At this size it was possible to maintain most of each starfighter’s fine details while also making it possible for those players interested in staging larger battles to field a significant number of fighters on the gaming tabletop.” https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2012/7/16/the-making-of-x-wing-tm/
  7. Is there an App for that? A Travel game would still require card space/dice rolling space. I don’t think you should go sub atomic with this. Just reduce the size so that it can be played on a average size table. Really when you think about the space, right now you probably need a 48”x48” table plus seating. So now your talking about an 8’x8’ area. Not everyone has that space available
  8. The purpose of reducing the size is to allow players to play on a smaller table surface X-Wing mats are 36"x36" and you need some area to place your cards, so a minimum table surface of 43"x43" is required. A 24"x24" Mat would only require a 31"x31" table.
  9. Yes they would be 33% smaller but still useable.
  10. FFG should have a X-Wing Micro version with ships scaled to fit on a 24”x 24” table/mat Thoughts ?
  11. Agree a larger mat would be good for epic problem with 36”x 36” is it requires a very large table 48”x48” to accommodate cards etc outside the playing area. Be nice to have an official smaller board for standard folding tables used in many game stores
  12. Should FFG offer an official alternative playing mat size 36”x36” is the standard maybe a 24”x36” Thoughts ?
  13. Interested in information about the actual table used in the Final Game at the Coruscant Open It looks like a custom table for the event and seems perfect for X-Wing Any information on the manufacturer or where a player could find one Video showing table attached
