I’m really excited to share that Star Wars: Edge of the Empire is going to be one of the featured game lines at the Star Wars Game Experience held May 3rd-5th . In addition to tournaments for X-Wing and the Star Wars LCG, my fellow producers and I will be running a character creation workshop, demoing Edge of the Empire itself, and doing a panel on creating your own campaigns in the Star Wars universe. Designer Jay Little will also be having a Q&A session about what it was like to create the mechanics for Edge of the Empire and the X-Wings miniatures game. We may even have other special guests, so check back for more updates.
You’ll need to register in advance, which costs $25, but that includes an entire weekend of gaming and exclusive swag. It’s like a mini Star Wars gaming convention right here in the Twin Cities. All events will be held in Roseville, MN at the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center (1975 Oakcrest Ave, Ste. 10).
Below is the roleplaying game schedule we’ve got planned (all play sessions are 4 hours long). There will also be prize drawings and trivia on Saturday and more events for card and minis gamers. See the full event listing here.
