I was in town seeing a friend and tagged along. X-Wing: The Miniatures Game has been around for a while and is in its 2.5 edition right now. A huge change is that instead of building a squadron out of 200 points to spend on ships and upgrades as you please, now ships can only take only so many points worth of equipment. As a miniatures game, it sure does have a lot of depth! I was talking with one of my friend's opponents and I brought up the Ivory Tower game design of roleplaying games, and how the game is designed to a certain point but it's up to the players to really discover the game. X-Wing TMG even takes a lot of time to get familiar with any list of units and upgrades you put together. It is not really a game I am interested in getting into, but in play there's something about the moment-to-moment play. Players surprise each other with how they maneuver their ships. Turrets rotate for broadsides; bombs are dropped in flight paths. I still find it exciting, even as a spectator.
