A affordable starter set for a Star Wars fan.
This game is neat, I will start with its a star wars miniature dog fighter, with factory painted ships. This core set is very affordable considering most Core sets for miniature games come in at a much higher price point and you have to assemble and paint them yourself, and that impressed me. This is a good impulse buy for a star wars fan.
While the box set does not include all the ships you need for a "normal" game it does get you started to learn the surprisingly deep rules this game has. Its simple yet very complex to learn to pilot these ships properly, Outside of ships it does include everything you need to play. I do like how FFG does the "expansion packs" ie additional ships. They include the tokens you need and all the cardboard game aids. I've been a table top wargamer for many years largely for many of the last few years playing games workshop and I've always disliked their lack of game aids. This game is the opposite, every ship includes most of the tokens you need (they do assume you will be buying a core set for things like dice/range rules/basic tokens.) The ships have cards (baseball sized) with their upgrades and all ad-dons to the ship also being on cards so you can organize them easily both on and off the table.
Last think I will say is most the of ships are very affordable in price and look and feel pretty good, I personally think they look/feel better then their price point suggests.Read full review
