IMAGINE: You strap yourself into the cockpit of your X-wing. As you turn to exit the hangar bay, klaxons blare and a series of red and blue lights pulse their warnings. "Imperial fighters in sector 48!" Your heart is racing. Then you get the signal from the flight crew. You hit the thruster, and you're chasing your wingmates through the clouds and into the starry darkness of space. For one second, it's the way you always felt flying should be. But then you see the activity on your scanners. And then the ships—hundreds of them, maybe even thousands. You open fire. Your squadmates open fire. The enemy opens fire. And everything erupts into streaks of light and explosions…
This spring, Fantasy Flight Games is bringing the biggest and most exciting X-Wing event ever, the X-Wing System Open Series.  From March 31st through June 5th, the X-Wing System Open Series will be held in eight different events, each held in one of eight different nations around the world.  These events are open to anyone, and each of the eight events will yield one "ace", each of whom will win transportation, hotel accommodation, and entry to the eight-player Coruscant Invitational taking place within the sold-out 2016 Star Wars Celebration in London, England. For more information on this series of events, visit the FFG website here.
