HOW THE TOURNAMENT WORKS:

Players are STRONGLY encouraged to read through the X-Wing Tourmanet Rules.

Players are expected to bring a 100 point Rebel or Imperial fleet.

In the first round, teams will be matched up randomly. After the first round, teams will be matched up according to current rankings in the tournament (based on the number of points they've scored outlined here) e.g., the player in first place will play the player in second place and so on. We will try our best not to pair teams that come to the event together or regularly play each other in the first round. If a team receives a BYE they will be awarded max points.

Players are expected to have ALL required Range Rulers, Maneuver Templates, tokens, cards, etc.

You will not play the same person twice.

The pairings for each round will be posted as soon as they are determined. Please be sure to arrive at your table ready to play right away.

Slow playing will NOT be tolerated.

Each game will be played on a 3' x 3' board.

Each game will be 60 minutes long.

Oh neat! I'll get word of this around, a few Thursday 40k regulars have been enjoying this game immensely.

Since most of my friends tend to come later(post 7:30) on Thursdays for 40k I might I'd be up for doing this earlier in the evening before they get there. 

Question: as this is a miniatures game why is it in the Boardgame category on the forum? The "OCD demon" inside of me was wondering.

I guess I just consider it a board game.  /shrug

I suppose moving it is a good idea.

Generally how many models would make up a 100 point fleet?

I've played a 100 point game with 3 or 4 models with lots of upgrades/better pilots.  Or you can skip the upgrades and have more rookie ships.

The bigger ships like the falcon start out around 50. X wings around 20ish. Tie fighters are cheaper

Hello all!

Just picked up "X-Wing" on Sunday 1/19 and I'm really loving it. I'm not new to gaming in general, but I've never participated in tournament style game-play. Should I dive right in this Thursday night, or would I be better off just watching and learning?

Even if I get steamrolled by more experienced players, it might be a great opportunity to learn. That being said, if the list is likely to fill I don't want to keep someone with more time invested from playing.

Your opinions are welcome! I'm looking forward to meeting the "X-Wing" crowd whatever happens.

-Misfit
Currently playing "X-Wing". 100 pt. lists for Rebel/Imperial.

Always up for a friendly game. Open to try/learn new games. Just ask!

I know a number of people that are just starting out with Xwing or have expressed interest in checking it out.  I've played a few games here and there and so far love it.  Hope to be there on Thursday.

I do NOT expect Thursdays to be super serious or super competitive for quite some time.  I'd dive right in!  Learn by doing!  :)

It's nice when people say good things about miniature games and I've heard nothing but good things about X-wing. Excited to see a game in action while about my 40k business.
