FFG: Star Wars Organized Play Preview
Fantasy Flight Games zeigen eine Preview auf die Organized Play Kits für Star Wars X-Wing und Star Wars Legion im kommenden Jahr 2019.
What’s in the X-Wing™ Season Four Attack Run Kit?
„Luke, you switched off your targeting computer. What’s wrong?“
–Yavin Base controller, Star Wars: A New Hope
Time to switch off your old expectations. With the 2018 Season Four Attack Run Kit, we enter a whole new era of X-Wing™ Organized Play!
The first seasonal kit designed specifically for the second edition of X-Wing, the Season Four Attack Run Kit comes with enough materials to support twelve weekly events or three, larger monthly events—plus a new „challenge“ award that ties into the season’s special challenge, which you’ll find outlined in the X-Wing squad builder.
The result? You gain more chances to play. More prizes to win. More freedom to pursue different variants—or refine your mastery of your favorite squadrons. In short, you get more X-Wing, and more X-Wing is better!
New Prizes Every Month
The Season Four Attack Run Kit comes with three different sets of prizes so that your local X-Wing community can play for new prizes each and every month.
Designed to support up to twelve players, the Attack Run Kit introduces a different set of twelve core prize cards and four elite prize cards for each of the months it supports. Accordingly, if you participate in all three months, you can aim to upgrade your squadrons with as many as six different alternate and extended art cards.
More than this, the different elite prize cards form a triptych if you win them all, meaning your success throughout the season could even lead you to the core of a beautifully decorated squadron of Imperial veterans!
Throughout the first month of Season Four, you and your friends will compete for extended art versions of Crack Shot and an alternate art Black Squadron Ace.
By the time you reach the second month of Season Four, you’ll find your prizes refreshed, and you’ll be able to play for extended art copies of Deadman’s Switch, as well as an alternate art version of „Deathrain.“
The prizes refresh once again for the season’s final month, and you’ll find your participation rewarded by the chance to claim an extended art Munitions Failsafe and vie for an alterante art copy of the talented TIE fighter pilot „Scourge“ Skutu.
One of the highlights of the Season Four Attack Run Kit is the introduction of the new challenge prize—an alternate art version of the Imperial ace, „Howlrunner.“
At any point during the season, your tournament organizer can choose to run a Challenge Event, using the special Challenge variant outlined in the squad builder. Because this Challenge variant could do anything from change the list of available ships and pilots to adding or removing upgrade options—even changing certain rules—the Challenge Event offers you the perfect chance to relax, hang out with friends, try new lists, and experiment with different strategies.
At the same time, it’s up to your tournament organizer to decide how the season’s Challenge Event will run—as a tournament, a casual game night, or even as a single round of X-Wing—just so long as you play it at your local game store and utilize the Challenge variant.
New Systems for a New Edition
The Star Wars galaxy is a vast and wonderful place—populated by myriad creatures and full of adventure. With its second edition, X-Wing and its squad builder app allow us to explore more of this galaxy than ever before, and the game’s Organized Play is ready to take you along for the ride.
Travel to distant star systems. Pilot new ships. Meet more players. Make new friends. And win exclusive prizes. X-Wing Season Four Organized Play is nearly here…

Battles Across the Galaxy
A Look at Season Four Organized Play for Star Wars™: Legion
„My lord, there are so many uncharted settlements. It could be smugglers, it could be…“
–Admiral Ozzel, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
The Galactic Civil War rages across countless planets, and everywhere it touches, violence blossoms, peace dies, peoples fall, families are ripped apart… and heroes rise.
Every planet caught in the grip of the war has its battlefields, its battles, and its heroes. All manner of intelligent species send their soldiers to join the fight, and every single one of them stands a chance—no matter how great or small—of helping turn the tide.
Across icy wastes and jungle planets, grassy plains and barren steppes—wherever there’s a battlefield, you’ll find leaders adapting their strategies to the changing circumstances of the battle. You’ll find pilots and drivers straining their machines to the utmost. And you’ll find infantry fighting, charging the enemy, and winning the day.
These infantry and their acts of heroism often go unsung, except in Star Wars™: Legion!
As the miniatures game of hard-fought infantry battles in the Star Wars galaxy, Star Wars: Legion is your gateway to countless battles fought across countless planets. There’s always a new battle and a new tactic to explore, and there’s no better way to pursue all that Star Wars: Legion has to offer than through its Organized Play.
Now, as we race toward the end of the year’s Organized Play, we’re happy to preview the prizes and Operations making their debut in the 2018 Season Four Ground Assault Kit.
The 2018 Star Wars: Legion Season Four Ground Assault Kit is designed to support your local Star Wars: Legion player base for three months of in-store play. Each month is associated with a new Operation, which adds a unique twist to your standard battles.
The Ground Assault Kit is also flexible enough that your organizer is free to run the Operation in whatever way works best for your group:
- A weekly league that meets on a regular basis.
- A „rivals“ league, in which players partner off and play in the store on their own schedule.
- A single-day event that compresses all four league games into a single epic day of Star Wars ground battles.
While you play through the Season Four Operations, you’ll also place yourself in contention for the Ground Assault Kit’s various prizes. There’s a new set of prizes that comes with each Operation, so you’ll find plenty of reasons—new prizes and new experiences—to head to battle each new month (and week).
The first Operation in Season Four, Operation: Polar is an entanglement operation designed for smaller armies and featuring a unique game setup builder.
You’ll want to break out your General Veers, Snowtroopers, T-47 Airspeeder, and 1.4 FD Laser Cannon Team for this one—Operation: Polar is built around snow effects and the idea of fighting in a snow-heavy battlefield.
The prizes for this Operation are also themed for the cold. You’ll find seventeen copies of a double-sided Fleet Trooper / Snowtrooper Core Prize card, thirteen copies of the Elite Prize Disabled token (potentially for when your vehicles can’t adapt to the cold), and a certificate for the Best Painted Operative.
You can earn up to two copies of the Core Prize cards—one for showing up and participating in the Operation, and one as an award for your patronage at the store. You earn one Elite Prize token for completing at least three of the Operation’s four games, and the other tokens are distributed to players with reference to the achievements they claimed throughout the month.
Operation: Total Annihilation
In Operation: Total Annihilation, you’ll work together with the other players on your team as the Rebels and Imperials clash in the woods outside an urban area. As one side moves toward the city, hoping to take it back from the other side, you and your teammates will score your points together and determine the start of the next match based on your team’s performance.
The prizes for this Operation include seventeen copies of the double-sided Core Prize card that features the Z-6 Trooper and DLT-19 Trooper, thirteen Elite Prize Damaged tokens, and a certificate for the Best Painted Army.
When you battle through this ambush Operation, you and your opponent will be forced to deal with „nighttime“ conditions. You’ll need to adjust your strategy for the Operation’s „fog of war“ effects and hidden information as you deploy and move around command tokens that represent units—until they’re ready to spring out and attack!
The prizes for Operation: Midnight include seventeen double-sided Core Prize cards with Fragmentation Grenade and Environmental Gear, thirteen Elite Prize Weapon Destroyed tokens, and a certificate for the Best Painted Light Support.
Go Where the Action Is
By the time you’ve battled through all of 2018 Season Four, you’ll be a seasoned veteran, ready to put on your Environmental Gear, go anywhere, and fight anyone to advance your cause.
Where will you find your next deployment? Where will you pursue your next objective? Talk to your favorite local game store today about how you can get involved in Star Wars: Legion Organized Play!
