The Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game is pretty awesome. I'd never really gotten into miniature gaming before this, but its pretty fun. Basically you and your opponent each assemble a squadron of ships and battle it out on a 3'x3' play area.
The game all comes down to how well you can maneuver, and line up your opponent for a good shot. After that its all about making sound effects and Star Wars quotes.
Stay on target...
If you're up for a game, let me know. Otherwise check out the game details over at Fantasy Flight Games.
