Scramble the Fighters

Blast into Action at an X-Wing™ Second Edition Launch Party


"We need to scramble our fighters!"
–Captain Canady, Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The release of X-Wing™ Second Edition is fast approaching—and so is your chance to take part in the opening exchanges!

The Core Set and the first wave of starship expansions are scheduled to hit retailers on September 13. This means we'll soon see X-wings and TIE fighters racing through the stars. We'll witness torpedoes blasting through shields and hull plating. We'll find pilots straining to pull their ships through difficult maneuvers, hoping to keep just outside of their opponents' rotating turret arcs. And we'll be introduced to pilots capable of using the Force.

There's a lot to celebrate in this second edition, and you can celebrate along with other aces the world over by heading to your favorite local game store and taking part in an X-Wing Second Edition Launch Party!

Take Your Seat in the Cockpit

The perfect chance to gain your introduction—or re-introduction—to the game's thrilling, squad-based battles, each X-Wing Second Edition Launch Party consists of three separate events—the Flight Training quiz, Quick Build Battle, and Squad Builder Startup.

These events arm you with the rules, get you to your ships, and then thrust you into the middle of the galaxy's greatest starfighter dogfights. Even better, each of these events comes with a custom reward—an extended art version of one or more of the Core Set ship cards!

  • You'll get your first taste of the second edition action during the Flight Training event. Prep your ship, prove you're ready to enter the cockpit, and you can claim an extended art Blue Squadron Escort.

  • Win or lose, your first Quick Build Battle is certain to help you gain the experience you need to succeed in the future—as well as an extended art Academy Pilot ship card.

  • Demonstrate your ability to assemble your squadron with the X-Wing squad builder app (or website), and you'll walk out of the Launch Party with a double-sided, extended art version of Luke Skywalker and an Obsidian Squadron Pilot.

Whether you participate in one or all of these events, these cards will ensure that when you next scramble your fighters, you'll do so in eye-popping fashion.
