X-Wing: The Redemption Run

“I suppose I could have attacked the Warspite.” - Keyan Farlander

Known among New Republic pilot trainees as the Requiem due to its difficulty, the infamous Redemption training scenario pits beleaguered pilots against massive waves of hostile fighters launched from the jump-and-drop attacks of the Nebulon-B frigate “Warspite“. With trainees flying both the scenario’s aggressors and defenders and reinforcements constantly cycling into the engagement, only truly skilled flyer would survive the swirling dogfight.

Come on down to Games @ PI on the 3rd of May and put your piloting skills to the test in this free-for-all test of mettle, as pilots attempt to rack up the highest kill tally and grab some swag from the official X-Wing Spring 2015 kit including the coveted Push-The-Limit extended art cards for all participants.

Do you think you have what it takes to survive the Redemption?

 

Summary:
The Redemption Run is a free-for-all casual X-Wing event. Each player begins piloting a single low point fighter. When that is destroyed, they return to the table the following turn with another ship with a higher point total, and the process continually repeats with the players bringing on higher and higher point total ships each time their ship is destroyed.

Date: 03/05/15, Sunday, 2pm

Entry Fee: $5

Ship Selection: 
- Each player must prepare 5 different X-Wing lists: 15 points, 25 points, 35 points, 45 points and 55 points.
- Each list may contain only a single ship, though the same ship need not be used across lists. (Eg. List 1: Rebel Bandit Squadron Z-95 Headhunter, List 2: Rebel Red Squadron X-Wing, etc.)
- Unique Ships and Upgrades may be repeated in different pointed lists (Eg. 35 Point list containing Corran Horn, 45 Point list containing Corran Horn, etc)
- All lists must be built using the same faction (Eg. 15 point Scum,25 point Scum, etc)

Starfield Setup:
3 ft by 3 ft Standard X-Wing Starfield. Each player will have the opportunity to add one asteroid or debris field token to the starfield prior to setup. After obstacle tokens are placed, each player will be randomly assigned one of eight different deployment zones for their ships.

 

Special Rules:
Due to this being a multiplayer event, several special rules must take effect.

1. Initiative.
It is possible that multiple players will be fielding pilots with identical skill ratings during this event. At the start of each round before players set their maneuver dials, players with identically skilled pilots will roll three attack dice, with the player rolling the highest number of hits and crits will go first. In the event of a tie (no pun intended), the player with the largest number of crits will go first. After determining which ship of that pilot skill goes first, movement will proceed clockwise around the table in order.

2. Ship Destruction.
When a player’s ship is destroyed, the opponent who cause the final point of damage gets credit for the kill. (In this environment, “kill stealing” is outright encouraged.) If a unit is not destroyed due to hostile action (such as flying off the map or hitting an asteroid) no kill is credited. Ion tokens are An exception to this rule - ships destroyed via flying off the map or colliding with obstacles due to Ion tokens are credited to the player who inflicted the last Ion token on the ship.

3. Point Scoring.
Each time a player is credited with the destruction of an opposing player’s ship, that player scores points equal to the total point value of the ship (and upgrades). In the event that a player intentionally or unintentionally destroys their own ship (via flying off the map or colliding with an obstacle), they suffer a point score penalty equal to the point value of the ship (and upgrades) they were currently flying. Ships destroyed due to the effects of Ion tokens (as listed above) do not inflict a score penalty to the controlling player and award points to the player credited with the kill as per normal.

4. Ship Replacement.
Each player begins using the ship from their 15 point list. Each time a player’s ship is destroyed, a player will bring a ship from their next 10 point increment list (15 –> 25 –> 35 etc). This replacement ship enters the starfield on the following turn from their same starting edge location. Players whose ships are not destroyed by enemy action will bring in an identical ship from the current tier. Players currently using the 55 point list will bring in an identical ship from the current tier when it is destroyed.

5. Winning The Game.
The Game will end immediately as soon as one player has eliminated 200 or more points of enemy ships.

 

Prizes:
Arranged in order of player score from highest to lowest scoring, participating players may claim items from the following list or prizes.
Star Wars Acrylic X-Wing Range Ruler
Corran Horn Extended Art Card
X-Wing Dice Bags

The Winner of this event will receive a Star Wars X-Wing Spring 2015 Winners medal.

Each participant will also receive a limited edition extended art “Push The Limit”  Elite Talent Card for participating in the event.

THE REDEMPTION RUN

GAMES @ PI

03/04/15

Winter is here…

“Winter is Coming”

Hey PI-Fans,

I could probably end this right here by declaring Dead of Winter is in stock, dropping the mic and walking away. But where would the fun be in that? Perhaps you’re in the mood for Zombies but want something lighter - maybe Dead Panic or Card of the Dead betters suits your needs. In the mood for 63% more awesome than you can handle? We’ve reloaded our Smash Up rack with everything from Pretty Pretty Smash Up to the Big Geeky Box. Or you’re feeling nostalgic and in the mood for some old school automotive combat – there’s Car Wars and BattleTech for that. If you’re in a rush, perhaps it’s time to consider one of the microgames like Eight Minute Empire, Lost Legacy or Batman Love Letter.

Be a pirate in Dark Seas, a timelord in the Doctor Who Card Game, a revolutionary in Coup, or just go on a Japanese vacation in Tokaido.

It’s a good time to be a gamer at Games @ PI.

Lets get the gaming started.

- Kenneth, Manager, Games @ PI

And We Have A Winner!

 

Hey PI-Fans!

With Miss Day being one of the most talked about International Tabletop Day promos, Games @ PI would like to congratulate Brian Slattery for being the lucky winner of our International Tabletop Day Lucky Draw. Brian walks away with the coveted limited edition Dead of Winter Felicia Day Promo. Lets hope he stocked up on plenty of anti-psychotics to deal with her… episodes.

In the meantime, with restocks rolling in, I thought I should mention that, barring anything catastrophic, we expect Dead of Winter back on our shelves on April 22nd. Due to limited quantities and overwhelming demand, in the interest of fairness, we will be strictly enforcing our policies regarding customer product reservations.

Sales of Dead of Winter will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Games @ PI Members may call the store during operating hours to reserve a copy of Dead of Winter for collection on the day itself.

Dear PI-Fans,

The Games @ PI staff will be assembling for a superhero punch-up on Thursday, 23rd April. As a result, the store will only be open for business at 3 pm on the day itself.

We apologise for the disruption and thank you for your understanding.

Restocked and Reloaded


Hey PI-Fans,

With the fifth seasons of Game of Thrones out, perhaps it’s time to revisit Westeros with Fantasy Flight Games’ A Game of Thrones board game… If you’re not feeling up to it… perhaps it’s time to save the world from Mythos – Eldritch Horror… perhaps. Or perhaps time to expand your fleets with a restock of B-Wing heavy fighters and Lambda Shuttles.

Perhaps you’re a Whovian… or a Pathfinder… or a Cylon…

Something for everyone, folks.

International Tabletop Day – The Aftermath

Hey there PI-Fans!

Now that I’ve actually had some sleep, I feeling slightly more qualified to thank you all for your support for our International Tabletop Weekend on the 11th and 12th. We had a great time hosting all of you as well, and we hope you had fun. As it stands, I figured it’s now time for the cleanup, so we’ve got news on the Felicia Day lucky draw for Dead of Winter, the International Tabletop Day Sealed Auction and the pack of Tabletop Day coins we’re handing out to one lucky participant.

So… let’s get to it.

- Kenneth, Manager, Games @ PI


TABLETOP SEALED-BID AUCTION

 

Over the course of the week, we received a staggering number of bids from all of you excited fans and we’ve just finished processing all of them and emails have already been sent to those who made winning bids. To ensure that the winners are informed, we will be sending followup emails and making phone calls to the winners again on the 17th of April.

Please note that we will be sticking to the 19th April closing date for picking up the winning bids.

As requested, Games @ PI will not be disclosing the identities of those who made the winning bid.

 


DEAD OF WINTER FELICIA DAY LUCKY DRAW


As promised in our previous announcement, we’re giving away a Felicia Day to one lucky Games @ PI customer, and having run everything through a RNG, the lucky customer is…

Brian Slattery

Congratulations, and on behalf of the Games @ PI staff, we would like to remind you to always keep your Felicia sedated at all times..


International Tabletop Day 2015 Collectors Coin Set

 

Lurking at the bottom of the case, we found a single pack of coins. These coins are swanky (Yes. I like the word ‘swanky”. SWANKY. SWAAAANKY. SWANK. Ahem). With there being only rather lonely one bag of these coins, we figured it would be rather anti-climatic to just have them disappear into the pockets of the first person who came to the counter to redeem stuff. So, once again, the RNG Gods were called upon to choose for us.

Neo Teng Whay

Congratulations, you’ve just won yourself a highly limited collectors set of Tabletop Coins.

BETRAYAL!!!!!!

PLAY MORE GAMES
- Wil Wheaton

Hey PI-Fans,

With Tabletop Weekend dominating our news feed for so long, we figured we should take a moment to inform you about all the restocks that have slipped in over the course of this week. And man… Are there some long awaited gems in stock.

Terrorize your friends in the old house on the hill as we return to the Avalon Hill classic Betrayal at House on the Hill, wage a brutal campaign of Zombicide in the brand new Rue Morgue set, expand your bitter war against the Empire with the Imperial Assault expansions, investigate the paranormal with the X-Files Board Game

And we haven’t even begun to really scratch the surface.

So.

Lets get to gaming.

International Tabletop Day Announcement Part 2

Hey PI-Fans, Hey there PI-Fans! By now, many of you have seen our International Tabletop Weekend announcement, and we’ve had tons of queries about the events on the 11th and 12th of April via Email and Facebook – even more have signed up on our Eventbrite Pages (Here and Here). Be sure to check out the sections on the Hosted Demos, Dead of Winter Felicia Day Lucky Draws and the Sealed Auctions taking place on the day itself.


HOSTED DEMOS

If you’ve ever been intimidated by a game, wondered how it played or just wanted to get some hands on experience, our staff will, on the 11th and 12th of April at the times stated below, be breaking out a wide array of titles featured on Tabletop, as well as a few personal favorites. We’re going to be hosting and cycling people through our demos as fast as we can, but we will be the first to admit that space at each table is limited. For best results, we recommend being present at the start of each session.

Time 11/4/15 Table 1 11/4/15 Table 2 12/4/15 Table 1 12/4/15 Table 2
1-3 pm Pandemic Walk The Plank Sentinels of the Multiverse Sushi Go
4-6 pm XCOM: The Board Game Get Bit Small World Munchkin
7-9 pm Star Wars X-Wing King of Tokyo Forbidden Island Sheriff of Nottingham

Interested in joining us? Here’s some of the fantastic swag (and I do love that word) that you can walk away with for coming down and playing games with us:

We’ve got Promos for Sheriff of Nottingham, Ca$h ‘n Guns, 7 Wonders, Munchkin, Five Tribes, Small World, Munchkin Panic, Dead Panic, Castle Panic, Roll For It, Shadowrun Crossfire, Fluxx 5.0, X-Wing, Terror In Meeple City, Quarriors and More…

On the 11th and 12th of April, bring down proof of your registration on our Eventbrite page (see the above links) to redeem a Tabletop Day Goodie Bag chock full of cool games and promos (one per participant).

Besides the loot, inside each bag will also be a (mostly) blank registration sheet. For each demo played with us, we’ll fill in a column, entitling you to redeem an item from our heap of promos.

Will you grab the Han Solo extended art card for X-Wing  or the wily Wil Wheaton for 7 Wonders? Perhaps the Tabletop Trophy of Awesome for Sheriff of Nottingham or the International Tabletop Day Dungeon of Superior Shopping for Munchkin? Maybe the Blackmailer for Ca$h n Guns or the Coupon of Instant Gratification for Munchkin Panic?

Can’t decide on just one? As Wil Wheaton likes to say, “PLAY MORE GAMES!


 

DEAD OF WINTER FELICIA DAY LUCKY DRAW

Unfortunately, there really isn’t a lot of Felicia to go around. Also, you there. Yes you. You know who I’m talking to. Get your mind out of the gutter.

We’ve had many many enquirers asking about the Plaid Hat Games Felicia Day Promo and unfortunately, demand has far outstripped the limited quantities available. With Felicia being in such short supply, the staff have decided that the fairest way to allocate the Felicia Day promo is as a lucky draw prize to one of our customers.

On Monday, 13th April, one customer randomly selected from our Dead of Winter sales records will receive one of these coveted promos.

We’ll be announcing the winner on our Website, so stay tuned for updates.


TABLETOP SEALED-BID AUCTION

Last, but not least, we’ve successfully acquired a collection of Tabletop themed promos from a number of manufacturers and we’re making these available to all of you PI-Fans. From now until the 12th of April, we’ll be hosting an auction for all the rare stuff we’ve accumulated.

If you’ve never participated in a sealed bid auction, the rules for this are simple – until the closing date of 12th April, Games @ PI members can submit a single bid for the items on sale by downloading the bid sheet here, and sending a filled sheet to our email address (info@pi.com.sg) with the Email header “TABLETOP 2015 SEALED BID” or physically fill up a bid at our retail store.

Customers are allowed and encouraged to bid on multiple items during the auction. However, in the interest of logistics, only the value of the first bid submitted will be entertained. Games @ PI reserves the right to reject bids that are below the starting bid value.

Customers who are not members but who wish to participate can sign up for membership at our retail store on the spot at the same time they make the bid.

Bidding closes on the 12th of April and bids will be tabulated with the product items going to the highest bidder. Members who have successfully bid for items will be contacted by email on Monday, 13th April 2015. Customers will have until the 19th of April to make payment at Games @ PI and collect the items bid for. In the event that an item is uncollected by the deadline, the item will be released to the next highest bidder.

Queries regarding the auction can be directed to us at info@pi.com.sg with the Email header “TABLETOP 2015 QUERY”.

International Tabletop Weekend 2015

Hey PI-Fans,

Now that we’ve got the International Tabletop Day Support Kit in hand and with International Tabletop Day just around the corner, the staff at Games @ PI stopped and asked ourselves… why just stop at one day? To us, it just made more sense for us to jump to the logical conclusion and dedicate the whole weekend to gaming.

Up for it?

Pop down to Games @ PI on either the 11th or 12th of April and grab a slot at our Tabletop Day tables as our staff steadily cycle their way through a bevy of board games, including a number of personal favorites, while we hand out discount vouchers for all the titles you played in over the two days.

If that isn’t enough… Walk away with a Games @ PI Tabletop Day goody bag loaded with promos and swag for participating and grab a limited edition promo of your choice from our Tabletop Day loot pile for each gaming session you participate in.

 


And…

For all the folks who want to play along at home…

Starting on the  6th and closing on 12th April, Games @ PI will be running a sealed auction for some really cool products, including some rare and coveted titles such as the limited Tabletop editions of Council of Verona and Dead of Winter. Details, rules of the auction and a full list of products up for grab are coming soon, so keep those eyes peeled.

 


 

Many more details will be unveiled in the days ahead, as we show off the cool stuff up for redemption, discuss our gaming schedules, unveil the titles hitting our tables and show of the swag bag…

In the meantime, keep those calenders free and register with us on our Eventbrite Pages (Here and Here).

 

- Kenneth, Manager, Games @ PI

 


TABLETOP WEEKEND

APRIL 11 AND 12

GAMES @ PI

Target! Maximum Firepower!

“General quarters. General quarters. All hands man your battle stations.”

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s a new week, which means kits also time for another slab of releases at Games @ PI.

By now, many of you wargamers have been salivating for Fantasy Flight Games’s new fleet scale wargame, and with Star Wars: Armada sailing into port, we’re happy to oblige. If dungeon crawling is more your speed, both Descent and the Lair of the Wyrm expansion have been restocked, so take up your sword and cast your spells as you venture into the darkness yet again. If mysteries and planning are your thing, look up Letters from Whitechapel, Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert as you race against time to beat the board, or an even more insidious opponent – your friends. Of course, if you’re looking for something lighter, how about stopping by for a light snack with Sushi Go, an award winning card game simulating a conveyor belt sushi restaurant.

So… maybe chase away those Monday blues and get to gaming…

- Kenneth, Manager, Games @ PI
