Consider X-Wing: The Miniatures Game! It's a simple, but deep tabletop game played with gorgeous little pre-painted spaceships. Check out /r/xwingtmg

What did you just do, buy 4 starter sets and the 2 big ships from wave 2?

If purchased new from Amazon, that would only be 158.94 before tax, but would include free shipping if purchased with Amazon Prime. You're STARTING the bidding for your used set $40 higher than the retail price, and then charging an additional $15 dollars for shipping on top of that.

Amazon.com Listings, (if you don't believe me):

  • Starter Set $29.65 x 4 = $118.60
  • Millennium Falcon $20.48
  • Slave 1 $19.86

    ==================================

  • Pre-Tax Total, brand new from Amazon: $158.94

    -----------------------------------
    Your asking price for used pieces should at least be somewhat lower than the price they could be purchased brand new.

If you can't find it local, the Core set is on Amazon for $29.

The Falcon and Slave 1 should come back around to store soon i hope. They've been out of stock for months now. The FF website says Q1 2015 for a reprint of them.

Okay big confession coming up. I unfortunately have actually on ever seen one Ghibli movie all the way through (Princess Mononoke), but not cause I don't enjoy them! I'm just so darn busy all the time! But Howl's is absolutely at the top of my list to watch!

Now as for things to recommend, for shows on Netflix I recommend everybody to watch "Luther" (the best detective show I think I'ver ever seen) and for something a little more raunchy but hilarious "The League" even if you're not into sports you can certainly enjoy this show.

For books I was going to recommend Chris Hardwick's "The Nerdist Way" but lo-and behold you already had it on your wishlist! So I'm going to recommend the book's of two other podcasters I love: first off, the delightful Kevin Smith book "Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good, it's not as self-help-y as "The Nerdist Way" but still has self-help elements coated with Kev's style of humor. Second are the books of comedian DC Pierson, first is the modern sci-fi book "The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To" and the harry potter/narnia spoof fantasy of "Crap Kingdom". Both books are totally awesome and I highly recommend checking em out!

And finally I couldn't help but notice you seem to be, like my best friend and I, a big 'ol Star Wars fan. Now I don't know if you are a board game fan at all but I do recommend checking out the "X-wing miniatures game" it's super easy to play and learn and it's just FUN. And if you're nervous about getting something like this without having even tried it, here's a video of Wil Wheaton playing it with Seth Green and Seth's wife.

And yeah that's it, so I hope your day get's better and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOUUUUUUUUU!

Edit: seek your fortune.

This looks really fun to play if you love Star Wars!

Side note: I went to Connect Comic-Con and this guy had amazing Star Wars posters. I got the Endor one and I bought my sister the Boba Fett. They were really nice quality.

The X-Wing core set is heavily discounted right now on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1616613769/

u/TopRamen713 · 1 pointr/wargaming

Do you know if there's a big difference between the TFA core set and the regular core set?

u/LazyG · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

You can get it for £25.52 shipped on Amazon UK, and it is 29 in my FLGS.

u/slide_and_release · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

Amazon has great stock for this game. €39.95 + €3.99 shipping for the Core Box. Why doesn't everybody check Amazon first? :D

You could go all in with an awesome collection of Cards Against Humanity!

It requires you to have a pretty twisted sense of humor but it's a ton of fun with friends.

You could check out Firefly the Game.

If you're a fan of the space opera, this is one of the more enjoyable games I've ever played.

If you really don't mind blowing 300 bucks, there's the Star Wars X-Wing miniatures game!

You take control of a spacecraft in the Star Wars universe and each game is like an episode of a Star Wars tv show, with a clear goal and twists and turns along the way as you try and accomplish that goal. The miniatures can get pricey but 300 bucks would get you started on a pretty sweet collection if you buy the smaller ships.

300 bucks would also get you started with the world's greatest trading card game: Magic the Gathering!

This classic card game has been around for over 20 years, features thousands upon thousands of cards to select from and, just like chess, takes 10 minutes to learn and a lifetime to master. For 300 bucks you could both have a gaming mat, plenty of dice, a kick-ass card collection and more than enough to start building multiple decks. Heck, you can just go and buy pre-made decks from a plethora of websites. Check out Youtube for suggestions on what formats you might enjoy, but kitchen table Magic the Gathering is VERY satisfying for two people.

Of course, if you really want an epic adventure, you could check out the bigger, meaner, older cousin of Magic the Gathering, and maybe the most infamous table top game in the world: Dungeons and Dragons!

A little more effort than most, but hugely rewarding if you have a colorful imagination and don't mind some simple math (most games requre SOME math, just look at Monopoly), and you have decades of books to explore, and many are available for pretty cheap from both used book stores and your local library (hopefully). This is a hobby that lasts for the rest of your life.

Like Dungeons and Dragons but want a more easy and accessible game to start out? How about [Muchkin!] (http://www.amazon.com/Steve-Jackson-Games-1483SJG-Munchkin/dp/B004U7JJWE/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1462113434&sr=1-1&keywords=munchkin)

We're talking dungeons...dragons...knights in shining armor and a LOT of fun. It's a good start for tabletop gaming.

Of course, Tabletop gaming is pretty extensive when it comes to choices. Here are a few more to check out:

The Game of the Century: Settlers of Catan

Spooky fun with Arkham Horror!

Big Adventures: Small Heroes... Mice and Mystics!

Survive the Zombie Apocalypse with Dead of Winter!

Of course, like Levar Burton says, you don't have to take my word for it. Here is the awesome Wil Wheaton's Youtube series, Tabletop! He plays with his friends so you don't have to! This series is amazing at helping to decide which tabletop game might be best for your playing needs.

Need a little help deciding if Magic the Gathering is right for you? How about Spellslingers on Youtube! Game Guru Day[9] plays Magic with his friends. Not only is this a super easy way to learn the game, it's a lot of fun to watch.

Need a little help understanding Dungeons and Dragons? Give Critical Role on Youtube a listen!

Luckily, you happened upon a time where tabletop games are going stronger than ever so...good luck!

You could totally start playing this game http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-X-Wing-Miniatures-Game/dp/1616613769 at massive scale.

It's made by Fantasy Flight Games. Here is a link to their page about it.

https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/x-wing/

I don't know what country you live in or if Amazon ships to your location, but that's where I generally buy my stuff. There are 2 core sets (one with characters from the original trilogy and one with characters from The Force Awakens) and you can start with either of those.

Technically you can play with only the core set but I'd recommend a couple of the expansions as well. Be careful though it's a bit of a rabbit hole once you get started. There is way too much available for any sane person to handle. This game is tons of fun. Here are a couple of links to the initial expansions I'd recommend as well.
