    Thanks for the kind comments on X-Wing. I'm glad you guys enjoyed it, and I am extremely proud of the positive reception it's received.

      And thanks to you for creating such a fantastic game! Having never played much with miniatures before, this is like a whole new world to me! 😉 I'm kicking myself now for not having picked it up on Thursday at GenCon. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

      And as someone who has played one too many similar miniature games I didn't really care for, I couldn't have been more surprised at how much I enjoyed this one and just how different (ie. better) it felt to play vs. Wings of War for instance. Can't wait for this one either!

    As the designer of the game, thank you for your kind words. And as the "scripter" of the world. Thank you.

    I also designed mercante, and gave the development to Jeff Tidball. Glad you liked them. Sounds like AEG made minor changes.
