The big announcement this week was Fantasy Flight revising its cash cow, X-wing Miniatures game to a shiny 2.0.
X-wing has been so many things to me over the years but the game system was getting long in the tooth and I welcome the overhaul.
Sorry, no Pit session today but this past weekend marked the annual Gen Con event list release. While the list isn’t exhaustive, as it only includes those that registered events during initial registration period, it is the bulk of the events that you’ll see and a good bell weather for what is hot right now.
The news has been making the rounds across the websites but I thought I’d weigh in briefly on Ares Games’ announcement that they are developing a starship battle game set in the Battlestar Galactica universe. The game “scale” looks to be a dogfight scale game with players controlling a number of individual fighter scale ships.
The beginning of the year doesn’t just include resolutions and goals but it means preparations. Even though August is a ways off, planning for the biggest show of the year, Gen Con, starts now. Yesterday, the first volley of activity for this great convention started with the opening of event submissions.
At Gen Con 50, we were able to talk to the Hawk team and get a rough idea of the major changes coming to Dropzone 2.0. These rules are still in beta so may change and are mainly from my notes so I may have missed or misinterpreted them:
