Squad Builder[edit | edit source]
If players want full control over their pilots and upgrades, they can build squads using squad points. When playing on a 3’x3’ play area, play at a squad-point limit of 200.
To build a squad in this way, players must download the official X-Wing squad-builder on their mobile device or access the squad-builder via X-Wing.com. The X-Wing squad-builder explains the rules of squad-point building and enforces these rules so that players do not accidentally build illegal squads. The website also includes a printable list of all cards and their squad-point costs and upgrade options.
A printable list of squad points for all ships and upgrades can also be found on the X-Wing Second Edition product page in the Support Section.
Quick Build[edit | edit source]
In addition to the official online Squad Builder App, players can quickly create their own squads using the Quick Build cards. These cards use a separate, modified set of build rules that allow players to quickly build a squad and start playing, without having to worry about point costs, upgrade slots or deckbuilding restrictions.
To play a match using Quick Build cards, players must agree to a particular threat level. Then both players build a squad by choosing a combination of Quick Build options that add up to that threat level. For a normal game on a 3’x3’ (91 cm) play area, play at threat level eight.
For more information, please see the Quick Build page.
