What do you do when several players in your game group can’t make it to your regularly scheduled RPG game? One of my gamer buddies wrote a post about a game to play in such circumstances. Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing is an easy to play beer-and-pretzels game you can run as a backup game when you have cancellations. His experience was you could run two games in about two hours. Alternatively, you could run a game like this during a ‘buffer’ hour before your main game begins, or after the main RPG game for those who want to game longer.
