Hi everyone! I would like to share some great ideas I have to enhance your X-Wing experience. But before you continue reading, please be indulgent as my first language is French.
First of all, I have to say that X-Wing is the best table-top game I ever played. It’s been more than a year now that I play it and I think of it all the time (I’m sure I’m not the only one). But, there were 3 things about it that bugged me and I found ways to overpass them and I would like to share them with you.
How many of you, during or after a ship was moved (by you or your opponent) nudged an asteroid and, no one could tell if that ship was overlapping or not? Was it intentional from your opponent (hope not!)? Well, as R2EQ spoke about it in another post, I always bring my “gommette” to fix those asteroids in place. I even bring extra and give some to my opponents as a gift and encourage them to use it every time and share the idea with others.
The second thing that bugged me was the range ruler. How many times have you placed it between compacted ships and mess everything up by bumping them? My solution? Since I have 2 core sets, I have 2 range rulers. I cut one to get 3 different range rulers.
Range 1-2-3. Wow! It is a time and mess saver. Just use the one that seems the best option. Is it range 1 or 2? Use the range 1. Is it range 2-3? Use the range 2. And so on…
The third thing that bugged me was the ship’s base. It slides around a little too easy for my liking. So, I fixed 4 “silicon rubber kitchen cabinet” under each of my base.
Now, they just stick to the mat! If you think of doing the same, make sure those silicon bullets are not too high because your manoeuvre templates will get under the ship’s base.
The last thing that bugs me, and I haven’t quite found the BEST solution yet, is storage. Well, for my part, I got a big box to rule… err arrange them all and a smaller one for tournament or “I want to play that list exclusively tonight”.
Well, that’s it! If I find any other great ideas, I’ll post them here. If you got some, please share!
