Fantasy Flight Games have been offering up more ways to play their games this week with the release of Solo Rules for those who want to take on The Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance in X-Wing by themselves or with a friend.

These rules are currently in their Alpha Stage right now but they give you a pretty good way to play out a clash between fighters in X-Wing. A series of tables are included in the rules which govern what manoeuvres, actions and abilities/upgrades a ship uses when it needs to activate.

This might all look a little baffling to most of you (me included) but the rules do offer a very detailed breakdown of how to go about setting up for a clash between yourself and your foes. It was never going to be the easiest game to try and modify for solo play but Fantasy Flight Games seem to have come up with an interesting way to do so.

X-Wing is one of those games that I'd love to play more of but I often found myself going up against people who had vastly more experience in the game than I did. They didn't make the game less fun for me, but it was clear that I was going to be getting outplayed at every turn. With a solo/cooperative element now added to the game, I could instead play alongside my friends and enjoy bashing up The Galactic Empire as the game tries to outwit us!

It would be good to hear what you folks think about this set of Solo Rules and if it will be something you'll be trying out yourself. It does recommend starting with something simple like a clash between one or two X-Wings and TIE Fighters, so the Starter Set seems a nice place to kick things off.

Are you going to be giving this a go?
