Opening-Crawl
One of Fantasy Flight Games’ most selling games is the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game, a tactical ship-to-ship miniature combat game. At GenCon 2015, the company hinted that they might have some games or expansions based on the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens hitting stores on Force Friday.

Well the first of such games has leaked online, a new edition of the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game featuring Force Awakens era repaints of the TIE Fighters and X-Wings. The game also features new ship upgrade cards like BB-8. But the biggest thing Star Wars blogs are focusing on is the synopsis found on the back of the box, which very well could be the beginning of the crawl for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Here is what the box says:

It’s a time of uncertainty. Unrest grips the galaxy as the influence of
the First Order spreads, but a glimmer of hope remains in the heroic
forces of the Resistance. As they struggle against the dark might of
the enemy, these brave heroes may yet awaken the skill and strength
needed to forge a new future…

Of course, the synopsis is very vague and could have just been created for the miniature game, or maybe it is the beginning of Episode 7’s crawl? What do you think?

A scooper at MakingStarWars sent over the above set photos from Star Wars: Rogue One at Cardington. It looks like some vehicles are being built or are under cover — is that a New Hope era X-Wing? The vines on the stone walls call back to Yavin 4. Could this be a recreation of that location or something else?
