For a while now I've been playing the X-Wing miniatures game from Fantasy Flight. It is a really cool game with hardly any issues to spoil play. It's bloody expensive though which is what initially put me off the game. At £12 for a single ship I find it hard to justify a lot of purchases. But once I tried it I enjoyed it and splashed out. Then I got a tad burnt out of the game because I was playing it a lot and because when trying to organise mini-events I got hardly anyone turn up. Bummed me out a bit on the game.
Then one of the semi-regular club members bought into the Star Trek Attack Wing game. It's basically the same game published by WizKids and licensed from Fantasy Flight. It has a few small tweaks such as ship turning arcs since it deals with big capitol ships rather than fighter craft. I'm also a lot more of a Trekkie than I am a fan of Star Wars so I have bought reasonably heavily into this.
The problem is that I am finding that I want to play Star Trek more than I do Star Wars these days. I'm a tad bored of Star Wars. Not bored in a never want to play it or sell my collection sort of thing, just not presently desiring the game right now. I think part of it is also that in Trek there are several factions to keep it interesting but X-Wing is firmly Imperial vs Rebel Alliance. FFG have said that they are not doing any other factions even though I am sure Republic and Separatist factions are wanted by players.
You can tell that I am more into the Trek game because I am already trying to work on a campaign system, something that I pondered for X-Wing but cast aside.
