(Mild spoilers) When the previews of The Force Awakens came out I thought that our original X-Wing pattern was going to be close enough to use for The Force Awakens as well.  Oops, my bad!  The design is close-ish.  Without getting too technical, the wings are slightly different, the engines now split in 2, and the proportions are a bit different.  (You can see detailed photos of the differences here.)

Review of X-Wing Miniatures Game: The Force Awakens

Well, I just got the new Force Awakens X-Wing Miniature Game for Christmas!  I must have been pretty good last year after all.  And our son who is absolutely crazy about anything that flies, got a matching set from Micro Machines.  This post will review the Force Awakens Set; compare the ships to the Original X-Wing Miniatures Game, as well as the Micro Machines set; and also discuss the topic of collectability.

(Some mild spoilers) I hate movie previews, mostly because I hate hate hate spoilers.  I was scared that the previews of The Force Awakens was going to reveal too much information,  just like most other previews, for most other movies.   However, I really have to hand it to JJ Abrams – not only did he not reveal much before hand,  some of the stuff we though we knew from seeing the previews, turned out to be wrong.  Yet, I don’t feel the least bit tricked.

Review of X-Wing Miniatures Game (Expansion Packs + More Ships)

X-Wing Millennium Falcon. Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game /// We add new Star Wars fun on our blog every week! /// #starwars #theforceawakens #xwingminiaturesgame #boardgames #review #xwing #millenniumfalcon /// maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

Hi all, this is a continuation of the X-Wing Miniatures Game review. There is a fair amount written about this game and expansion sets all over the internet (including Amazon, MiniatureMarket, BoardGameGeek, Wikia, etc). I’m trying to discuss some things that may not easily found on those reviews. This includes more detailed photos, comparison to other miniatures, a discussion about scale, and finally my own take on a review.

Review of X-Wing Miniatures Game (Base Game)

Hello everyone!  I’m “the Hubby” that Anette occasionally mentions in her posts.  I am also, what she calls “the Game Master” here at M4P central.  That title makes sense.  I have been an avid board gamer my entire life, and I have a large collection of board games – Star Wars and otherwise.  A couple of years ago I started playing the X-Wing Miniatures Game, and over the next few weeks I am going to share a series of reviews of that game here.  Let the Games Begin…

Drawing on our Imagination! (DIY Star Wars Crayons)

One of the marvelous things about the Star Wars franchise is how it engages people’s imagination.  Just like countless other kids in the late 70’s, the hubby spent a good chunk of his time drawing TIE-fighters and pretending to be shooting at stormtroopers. Now a generation later, our kids are drawing X-wings and having Lightsabers fights.
