101 Lauriston Place, EH3 9JB Edinburgh, United Kingdom
All day event celebrating 40 years of Star Wars! We will have small thematic games running all day for the 3 main game systems but feel free to bring along others such as Destiny and the CCG.
While supplies last, each player that attends will receive one copy of the R2-D2 and Integrated Astromech combination upgrade prize card for X-wing, there will also be extra promos for all games and a chance to win a copy of the world champ 2017 alternate art cards: Rey (X-wing) and Dodonna (Armada).
The entry cost will be £5, this helps cover the prize support and will also include your standard pay to play for Hub so you can keep gaming all day.

Event list so far —

200pts deathmatch. Full rules have been posted in this event by Calum who will be monitoring this event. If you’ve never tried Armada this is a great place to start and there will be 2 full fleets ready for anyone to pick up and play with. The player who has the biggest win at the end of the day will be awarded the worlds alternate art General Dodonna card. In addition, there will be a tonne of armada promos including cards and rules up for grabs.

Battle of Scarif –
The objective of this game is to either destroy the AT-ATs and keep your friends on the ground alive or to destroy the Rebel Blue Squadron and allow the AT-ATs to crush the members of Rogue One on the beaches of Scarif. This game has fixed lists and all models will be supplied.

Escape from Jakku –
Fly either as Rey on the Millennium Falcon or the first order TIE fighters trying to shoot her down. This is a simple shoot out battle in the ruins of a crashed Star Destroyer, the game will be timed to an hour though. The fastest win from the whole day, for either side, will win the worlds alternate art Rey card. This game has fixed lists and all models will be supplied.

Battle of Yavin –
Perhaps the most iconic battle in the Star Wars saga, fly as red or gold squadron and fight your way to the trench to destroy the Death Star or grab a black squadron TIE and support Darth Vader as he cuts down the Rebel pilots. This game has fixed lists and all models will be supplied.

Heroes of the Autri Cluster –
One of the most popular mods for x-wing, we have a full printed and card mounted set with a full rule book and player cards for you to use. Never played this before? Ask a staff member to give you a run through and start your career as a Rebel pilot. Already have a campaign in progress? Bring your character sheet and rack up some XP for your next session. We will supply most of the ships you will need to play this however we recommend bringing your own X-wing or Y-wing to play.

Hunger Games –
Free for all X-wing with a twist. Every wanted to have a heavy laser cannon on a TIE fighter? Or Gunner on a Y-wing? Well this is the game variant for you! We will have upgrades available for your use or you can bring your own and make up your cornucopia as a group. Full rules will be available on the table but you will need to bring your own small ship of choice and any upgrades you wish to throw into the hat. Winners of this game mode will get an engine upgrade alt art.

Open tables/Hanger Bays –
We will have a few tables set aside for standard X-wing games or if you want to bring your own game variant we will be happy to help set it up and maybe get some promos on the go for it. In addition, if you wish to grab 3 friends we can provide prize cards to run a few hanger bay mini tournaments (pods of 4). The winners of these will be rewarded with the double sided lothal rebel/baron of the empire full art cards from this year’s Yavin Open.

We are also working on getting someone down to demo Destiny and the LCG, if you know anyone who wants to demo these please get in touch with Jamie Hewitt and we will allocate you a table and arrange some prize support.
