I just discovered the inside box has “So say we all” wrapped around it in big letters. Pretty cool.

Review is coming, but I will leave this here.

If you are not interested in the git gud tournament scene and all the meta shenanigans, and if what you like about X-Wing is the flying and maneuvering over the upgrade card arms race...sell X-Wing now.

This is the best spaceship game I’ve ever played- I like it better than Armada.

It has -vector movement-. Not true vector, but the abstraction of it is genius. No calculator required. You can come in fast, do a full turn and burn (with drift to account for velocity) AND dive to get under something.

It is more complex, but the additional complexity buys a lot of detail and REAL depth, not that fake depth that card upgrades add.

Totally all in on this- which isn’t saying much, it will probably be like 4 ship packs beyond the starter. You DON’T want to run a huge fleet of ships. It shines with only two per side. Yes, it feels complete out of the box!
