With the half term holidays on the immediate horizon , I thought it would be fun to bring a boardgame or two to Cornwall, just in case the weather socks in. As this is an absolute certainty rather than a likelihood, I decided to splash out on a copy of Fantasy Flight Games X Wing, rather than drag out my much loved and overly pampered Wings of War collection.
As the boys have been soaked in old school Star Wars since conception and have now been exposed to the whole Clone Wars thing, they should find it a bit of a blast. I have no idea how the system works but it looks like a lot of fun for minimal outlay, by today's inflated standards at least.
I'm really looking forward to a few swiftly paced and desperate dogfights between my rebel X Wing and the evil Imperial boys in their collective Tie Fighters, assuming the box arrives from Amazon by the end of the week that is?
