A Weekend of Star Wars Games

Russell Mason, the Grand Strand’s most dedicated Star Wars gamer, will be joining ShushCon to help us offer a weekend full of Star Wars miniatures games.

Take flight on Star Wars Saturday, when Russ facilitates Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game the first half of the day and a sprawling game of Star Wars: Armada in the evening. If you are a fighter pilot or fleet commander one of these amazing Star Wars games will let you live your dream of stellar conquest or allow you to defend the Rebellion against the evil Empire.

Imperial Assault Sunday is more down to earth. Players take the role of an elite team of operatives going on missions to help overthrow the Empire. Multiple scenarios will run, as the players try to defeat the vicious Darth Mason.

Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game (Early Saturday)

Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful Rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat.

Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!

Star Wars: Armada (Late Saturday)

Massive Star Destroyers fly to battle against Rebel corvettes and frigates. Banks of turbolasers unleash torrential volleys of fire against squadrons of X-wing and TIEs. Engineering teams race to route additional power to failing shields. Laser blasts and explosions flare across the battlefield. Even a single ship can change the tide of battle.

In Star Wars: Armada, you assume the role of fleet admiral, serving with either the Imperial Navy or Rebel Alliance. You assemble your fleet and engage the enemy. Using the game’s unique maneuver tool, you steer your capital ships across the battlefield, even while squadrons of starfighters buzz around them. Then, as these ships exchange fire, it’s your job to issue the tactical commands that will decide the course of battle and, perhaps, the fate of the galaxy.

Star Wars: Imperial Assault (Sunday)

Imperial Assault puts you in the midst of the Galactic Civil War between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire after the destruction of the Death Star over Yavin 4. In this game, you and your friends can participate in two separate games. The campaign game pits the limitless troops and resources of the Galactic Empire against a crack team of elite Rebel operatives as they strive to break the Empire’s hold on the galaxy, while the skirmish game invites you and a friend to muster strike teams and battle head-to-head over conflicting objectives.

ShushCon is a games and geekery convention March 11th, 12th, & 13th, 2016 at the Waccamaw Neck Branch Library in Pawleys Island, SC. For more information contact
