Some pictures of the contents in this posters blog (see signature in his post) of the new FFG X-Wing game. Looks more interesting than the WOTC offering and the minis look crisper.

Quite good, I liked FFG's work with WFRP, I look forward to seeing what they do with Star Wars.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

Wotc game set in Star Wars universe is just horrible product, total waste of money. This FFG X-wing game could be nice, considering their Wings of War game which has same kind of mechanics as this.

Gametime looks to be around 30mins, 2 playergame with possible option to add more, price around 30 so i guess it looks quite ok. Word is that currently it has X-wings and TIE fighters only and knowing FFG there will be some expansions.

Boardgamegeek has some details already on gaming sessions.

Fantasy Flight Games? Awesome. Loved them ever since I bought the Horus Heresy tabletop game. I might be interested if I had some money that did not go into my unhealthy 40k addiction.

I consider Horus Heresy as just rather average boardgame, even though im fan of the series. Fantasy Flights best games IMO are:
Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Cosmic Encounter, Arkham Horror, Chaos in the Old World and Game of Thrones LCG.

Fantasy Flights best strenght are what comes inside box. But their rulesbooks usually are rather messy and several faqs are needed. Their new Star Wars line looks rather promising so far.

The line for this game was VERY long at Gencon this year. I really wanted to play but I never found the time to wait on line for a demo

It upsets me I wasn't able to try this and report back to you guys how it was.
