OMG OMG OMG Imperial Assault!

This game is so much fun! I can’t believe how cool it is. If I had a time machine, the first thing I wouldn’t do is go back and see the dinosaurs, or assassinate a deranged world leader to prevent a world war. I’d take a copy of Imperial Assault back in time and give it to myself as a 16 years old boy, “Here kid, this is going to change your life… oh and here are some stock options.” Continue reading OMG OMG OMG Imperial Assault!


Player Profile: R5Don4 (Don)

Player Profile is a series of articles in which R2-EQ looks at players in the X-Wing community. Many people would like to get to know the person behind the player, and in X-Wing not only are the players renowned for being “nice guys” but they are often quite characterful when you scratch the surface.

Today I interview R5Don4, known as Don in real life. I met Don when I attended my first X-Wing Tourney way back in the Kessel Run days. He was the guy who advertised the event on the FFG forum. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have attended. After meeting Don, I started to use the Star Wars Gaming Ontario Facebook group to find out about local events. He’s a tireless promoter of the game, a very nice guy and an excellent player. I thought it appropriate to start this article series with Don who’s been there since day 1 of wave 1 and growing the game in Southern Ontario like no one else around.

Custom X-Wings by Walter Vail

One part of X-Wing that I enjoy is seeing custom painted ships. I always have my eye out for conversions, repaints and custom mods. I came across Walter Vail’s work one day when looking for swag on eBay. I was impressed with his Y-Wings and X-Wings. What I really liked about his X-Wings were the crisp clean lines and fine detail. I was so inspired by his work I decided to contact him which led to this interview.

My First Team Epic Tournament (Nov 2014)

It was the perfect Saturday to play 7+ hours of X-Wing. I was on 3 hours sleep, recovering from a concert the night before in the passenger side of my friend’s car eating breakfast on the run. Bleary eyed and slightly hungover I had only played Epic once before. Yet, I wasn’t worried in the slightest – I had my coffee with me. We invented coffee to stay up all night and function the next day, right? Besides, I had one of the best players in Southern Ontario as my team captain, so if 70% of my brain showed up, we’d be fine.
