Star Wars: X-Wing Core Set (Second Edition) puts you in command of your own squadron of advanced starfighters locked in thrilling, tactical space combat, placing central focus on the visceral thrill of flying starships in the Star Wars galaxy.

It is a period of civil war.
The Galactic Empire spreads its tyranny across the stars, seeking to crush the Rebel Alliance.
However, hope is not so easily extinguished.

Now, the heroic pilots of the Rebellion take to their X-wing starfighters to face endless swarms of Imperial TIE fighters with the fate of the galaxy on the line...Star Wars X-Wing is a fast-paced game of tactical space combat in the Star Wars universe. Players control starfighters, enlist iconic pilots, equip special weapons and upgrades, and engage enemy craft to seize victory.

Game Play

During a battle, you’ll use your squadron’s unique capabilities to give yourself an advantage in the thick of combat. Each X-Wing ship flies differently, with its own set of maneuvers ranging from gentle banks to aggressive Koiogran turns. You’ll need to use every ship’s maneuvering capabilities to the fullest in order to strategically position your ships. A round begins with players secretly selecting a maneuver on each of their ships’ unique maneuver dials. Once you’ve decided how each of your ships is going to fly, you’ll begin revealing the dials and moving your ships, starting with the lowest skilled pilots.

As you move, you’ll enter a tense duel with your opponent as you both try to line up the perfect shot. Before you can open fire on an opponent’s ship, however, they must be in your firing arc and within range. By carefully selecting your maneuvers, you can get enemy ships in your sights, and once you’ve locked onto your target, you’re free to choose your plan of attack. You might pepper the enemy with blaster fire to whittle away their shields. Or, you could go for massive damage and launch a devastating volley of proton torpedoes. No matter how you approach the battle, you have complete control of your squadron. One player wins when all of their opponent’s ships are destroyed!

Slick flying is certainly important, but it isn’t the only decision you’ll have to make in the midst of a dogfight. Once your ships have completed a maneuver, you can also perform an action to gain the upper hand. Whether you choose to acquire a target lock on a rival ship or barrel roll out of an enemy’s firing arc, the actions you take affect the course of the battle and determine the fate of your squadron.

What's New in Second Edition

Now, in the second edition of the game, your actions offer greater strategic depth than ever before. Some actions are red and induce stress when they are used. Other actions may be linked, allowing you to chain two actions together and push the limits of how your ship can handle in a dogfight!
