Just back from another couple of games of X Wing at Comics, and, even though I lost both...they were great games!
Short-ish, you don't have to spend hours and hours painting so you've only got money invested in your miniatures, the games are action packed all the way through, the people who play it are in it for the love of the game, win or loose - yes they want to win, but mostly they just love Star Wars and want to have fun whilst playing with their toys.
Thanks Andrew, thanks Tim, I really enjoyed our games.
And Soontir with a Stealth Device is a dodging machine!! :-)
