Announcing New Tournament Kits for X-Wing
X-Wing | Published 02 January 2014

Players, talk to your local game store about hosting a tournament, using one of the new 2014 Season One Tournament Kits for X-Wing™.

In every game of X-Wing Organized Play, you and your opponent meet in fast-paced, ship-to-ship dogfights, employing rapid maneuvers and quick thinking to gain the upper hand. Now, you and your friends can command the starships of the Imperial Navy and Rebel Alliance by talking to your local retailer about ordering a 2014 Season One Tournament Kit for X-Wing. Season One begins in March but the deadline to oder kits is January 17th.

What is a Tournament Kit?

Beginning in 2014, our Organized Play kits are divided between Tournament Kits and Game Night Kits. Game Night Kits are now available for our cooperative games, such as Descent and The Lord of the Rings. The Organized Play kits for our competitive games, however, have been expanded into Tournament Kits. These kits now include more prize support and promotional material designed to support competitive tournament play at local retailers. The kit includes a guide to supporting an eight-week tournament series, but it can also be used to host a single tournament, more casual Game Nights or leagues, or for whatever suits your local play environment best.

 

Each 2014 Season One X-Wing Tournament Kit introduces a champion’s medal, two deck boxes, and nineteen alternate cards – exclusive, movie-still versions of Dagger Squadron Pilot and Colonel Jendon.

Please note: The movie-still cards in this kit are produced through FFG's In-House Manufacturing, and as such, they may appear slightly different in color and texture from the game's other cards. To be tournament legal, these cards must be sleeved with opaque or art sleeves.

What’s in the 2014 Season One X-Wing Tournament Kit?

Each 2014 Season One X-Wing Game Night Kit comes with materials built to support players as they participate in the game’s fast-paced starship dogfights:

  • One exclusive medal for the tournament champion
  • Two movie still versions of Colonel Jendon
  • Seventeen movie still versions of Dagger Squadron Pilot
  • Two card boxes – one Imperial and one Rebel Alliance – for storing ship cards, upgrade cards, and tokens
  • Two packs of five ion tokens and three seismic charge tokens
  • A promotional poster showing two modified TIE interceptors
  • One informational pamphlet on running a tournament
