Retailers: You’ll soon be able to lead your squads of X-Wing™ fans to battle with the new Season One 2013 X-Wing Game Night Kits!

Our first Game Night Kits for X-Wing were a terrific success.

Now, as X-Wing looks ready to explode with the February release of the Millennium Falcon™, Slave I™, and the other starfighters from the game’s second wave of expansions, our Season One 2013 X-Wing Game Night Kits offer you and your players a chance to field oversized pilot cards for Han Solo and Boba Fett.

Iconic Pilots

“He’s worth a lot to me.”
–Boba Fett, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

X-Wing is a game of fast-paced tactical dogfights in which players secretly select their maneuvers, lock them in, and race into position to fire upon their foes. It is also a game of iconic characters – the famous heroes and infamous villains who battled in the most dramatic space confrontations of the Star Wars movies and expanded universe.

Even among a galaxy of skilled combatants, some earn legends that are larger than others, and the Season One 2013 X-Wing Game Night Kit recognizes two of these iconic pilots with an oversized, double-sided pilot card, featuring Han Solo on one side and Boba Fett on the other.
