So, I bought my lad the X-wing miniatures game starter set… and then another ship or 2, or 3…
We have enough to make a 100 point tournament squad each – with a load more figures on order like the Millenium Falcon and Slave I. My 10 year old has loved playing it – full rules with all the advanced rules and cards. Every waking minute he’s asked if we can have another game.
Great stuff. A game I can get into with him. Mind you, I’m not sure whether to put stuff about it on this blog as the figures are already painted. #woohoo
Anyway, after playing on a 2′ x 2′ Deadzone mat, we progressed to a black tablecloth on the table. Now we’ve moved to a special 3′ x 3′ mousepad space mat. I’m really impressed with the quality of it and I’m now thinking of getting some 6′ by 4′ mousepad mats for some of the other mini games I play.
So… Roll on Easter holidays and all the other ships arriving through the post to play with.
