SWCG is Alive and Well. Just Sleepy. Hey, Look! New Spoilers!

My Summer siesta is over (and by siesta I mean I’ve been busy as f*ck and have been forced to neglect my website duties). Let’s get back into it with some new spoilers for both X-Wing Wave 3 and Star Wars LCG Assault on Echo Base!

All Quiet on the Midwestern Front

SWCG has been in a bit of lull as of late as I prepare for the upcoming Star Wars LCG regional in Chicago. Expect a mondo-update in the days following the 18th as I’ll be posting a hefty amount – results, deck lists, and a detailed report (perhaps even some finals video as well).

This lull comes after a HUGE week for the site where traffic exploded due to the X-Wing Wave 3 reveal. As far as I know, SWCG was the first site on the intertubes to break the news to the general public (much thanks to the generosity of Ryan “Picasso” Krippendorf for sending the news the moment it was revealed at Star Wars Weekend). I genuinely appreciate the support from everyone and I hope that you keep checking back – I want this site to become a valuable resource for the latest news, strategy, and for finding other players.

I’ve got some ideas is the works for new content on the way (including possible video projects and interviews like this one with artist and illustrator, Tony Foti), but I’d really like to start filling up the site with stuff from the community. With all of the recent and upcoming regional activity, SWCG is looking for tournament reports, deck/squad lists, and strategy articles. Share your ideas and experiences with the LCG/X-Wing gaming communities by clicking on the CONTRIBUTE link above. Or you can just click the word CONTRIBUTE right here. See. CONTRIBUTE. Click it. It works. CONTRIBUTE.

Send in anything and everything you’re willing to share about the games. I’d like SWCG to have an easy-access library of information for new and veteran players alike. Any support would be greatly appreciated.

Let’s Reflect on Wave 3

For those of you that attended the Star Wars Weekend Regional hosted by Fantasy Flight, please take a moment and CONTRIBUTE your X-Wing Squads, LCG deck lists, and tournament reports! While we wait for players to share their weekend experience, let’s all take a moment to express our Wave 3 opinions in the form of a multiple choice exam.

Wave 3 Ships Announced!

Finally we know. The next wave of X-Wing Miniatures ships will include: TIE Bomber, B-Wing, Lambda-class Shuttle, and the Moldy Crow (HWK-290) (an EU ship from Dark Forces). It turns out most of the speculation was correct – all except the Moldy Crow – which is a great call by FFG. I suppose now we can all start speculating about stats, pilots, and upgrades now. Thanks to Ryan “Picasso” Krippendorf for sending this information to SWCG immediately after it was revealed.
