In an era where flashy consoles have increasingly dominated game play, this makes tabletop gaming cool again.

Star Wars X-Wing is a tactical combat game wherein the Rebel Alliance faces off against the Galactic Empire. When it comes to this particular franchise, old school strategizing and the ability to physically touch and move pieces is particularly appealing. Don’t tell me you’ve never pretended to command squadrons of fighters, leading the rebels in an epic war against the Imperial forces.

Brain’s about to explode. This is the culmination of all the nostalgic fantasies I ever had about the Star Wars universe.

Off to set up battle formations. May the force be with you.
