New Y-Wing coming with the second edition of X-wing Game

With the second edition of X-Wing coming in September, Fantasy Flight Games is making sure that you can get more than just the base game at launch.  Thus one of the ships being released alongside the new base game is the BTL-A4 Y-Wing, with cards that conform to second edition, plus a couple new items to throw in the mix.  The Y-wing itself is a durable and versatile fighter, and depending on how you load it up it can do many different jobs.  In this expansion you will get cards for pilots like “Dutch” Vander or Horton Salm, as well as upgrade cards like ion cannon turrets or the new proton bombs and seismic charges.  Proton bombs deal a critical damage when a ship gets too close, and the seismic charges will destroy a 1 range obstacle, and then shower any fighters within 1 of that obstacle with debris, causing damage.  So if you are looking for a tough and variable work house for your squadron, look for the new BTL-A4 Y-Wing when it hits stores in September.

I'm an engineer manager by day, board game entusiast by night. I will play most anything once but I love adventure style games and cooperative games, or just playing games with my wife. Games like the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, TIME Stories, and 7th Continent really hit on all those marks for me and I love discovering new gems.
