Right now we have a standing X-wing night set for every third Tuesday at Game Haven in West Jordan. Our last one was on 2/18 so I think the next one will be on 3/11 at 6:30.

 

I'm always available at different times too if anyone just wants to meet up at a game store for a random game sometime.

My son and I showed up and played a single game, we were on the end table teaching another guy and his kid how to play. We were going to play in the event but it was going to go too many rounds and I had only three hours sleep plus I ran a Warmachine tourney there earlier that day.

If anyone wants to play Saturdays my son and I are up for some games.

I also had a lot of fun at the event.  I'm working with GH to schedule a self-organizing weekly league, with one night a month a special event with prizes.  I'll post details in this thread a little later to see what everybody thinks.

I can find a free Saturday every now and then. I'd be up for a game sometime. Feel free to send me a direct message and we can set something up sometime.

If I were to start a Facebook group devoted to X-Wing would anybody be interested? We could use it to meet up for games schedule events and create events.

Just got an e-mail from Boardgame Revolution

Hey X-Wing Players!


Come join us this Saturday, March 1st, at 6pm for a casual X-Wing Miniatures tournament! Buy in will be $5 or less depending on what we decide for prize support (we have several options!) and the amount of people that show up.

This will be good practice before the 2014 Championship we will be holding on March 8th. Invite some friends! And I look forward to seeing all of you Saturday. Check out in the pics below how awesome our last tournament was!

So here's my idea for a weekly X-Wing league at Game Haven in West Jordan.  We do a 2 month cycle of playing the 6 missions from the rulebooks, with prizes being handed out at the mid point and at the end for whoever has won the most missions as well as who has destroyed the highest number of squad points.  There will be a small entry fee for both the midpoint and end league dates, with participation prizes as well.  The league will be self organizing - just show up, check the Mission Track sheet to see what you haven't won yet and decide with the other players who will play against who.  The tracking sheets will be printed off and kept at the store, but you can see them at BGG if you want a better idea of what I'm proposing: http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/100905/xwmg-rulebook-missions-tracker

 

If you don't show up to play every week, that's ok, just come as often as you'd like.  How does this sound?

Sounds good to me. Any idea what the fees will be?

I suggested $5, but it will depend on both the participation prizes as well as the winner's prizes.  I recommended they get in touch with http://daftconcepts.com/, a local company who has already produced laser cut acrylic stuff for both X-Wing and Attack Wing.  I think the weekly league would be free to play - it's just the monthly organized play event that would have a fee to cover the prizes.

Cool! I would definitely be in. Thursday evening would probably work best for me, but I could make Tuesdays work too.

 

I've seen those Daft templates and they look pretty sweet.

Looks like Gamers Asylum in Ogden will start running Xwing events on the 2nd Sunday of the month.

 

And for those interested they run Attack Wing on the 3rd Sunday of the month.

Shall we kick off the Xwing league at Game Haven in West Jordan tomorrow night, Tues March 25th?

 

I'll bring the materials - it should be a simple, self running league for this first go around.  Free to play for each week, but we'll do a monthly special event with a small entry fee and prizes.

We had 7 players for the first week of the league last night and it was a fun time. Hopefully we'll see a few more next week. The league score sheets are in the Star Trek drawer behind the counter, so if you show up to play just ask the employee for the sheets, then don't forget to put them back.

I've had a couple people tell me they'd like an alternate night to Tues - if anybody would prefer another night, let me know and I'll have GH schedule 2 nights a week.
