X-Wing Cooperative Campaign

So, I am a bit late to the game in discovering this wonderful little gem, as it was originally put out in August but it is definitely on my list of things to try out with X-Wing. It is called the Heroes of the Aturi Cluster, and its basically a large 15 mission cooperative campaign designed by Josh Derksen at Dockingbay416. The campaign is built around a group of up to 6 players playing as the Rebellion, with each player controlling a single ship and the group playing as a cohesive squadron. The Empire ships are controlled by an impressive AI system that a GM or just a player can use to determine the actions of the enemy ships throughout the game. The campaign is available for free from the Dockingbay416 website here. The download includes everything you need to play the campaign, including an 80 page book, scoresheets, mission and AI pilot decks, along with new terrain used in the missions. All you need to do to get started is download the PDF and components, and then print it and cut out the pieces. The other nice thing about it is that it scales depending on the number of players you have, and can even be played solo if you like. A lot of work went into this, and it shows because it is a very high quality product – especially for something they are giving to the community for free.

This will definitely breath a bit of new life into the game for me and my play group, as it will give us something new and exciting to play as opposed to just blowing each other up repeatedly. If you have played it, let me know how it was in the comments below! Happy campaigning!
