Cluster Mines Card

Card Text/Abilities Edit

ACTION: Discard this card to drop 1 cluster mine token set.

When a ship's base or maneuver template overlaps a cluster mine token, that token detonates.

Corrected Detonation Text Edit

When a bomb token detonates, the ship that moved through or overlapped that token rolls 2 attack dice and suffers 1 damage for each hit and crit rolled. Then discard that token.

Original Detonation Text Edit

When a bomb token detonates, the ship that moved through or overlapped that token rolls 2 attack dice and suffers all hits rolled. Then discard that token.

FAQ Edit

When a ship is instructed to place Cluster Mines (such as by Minefield Mapper), the tokens are placed in the arrangement described on the Cluster Mines bomb reference card. (X-Wing FAQ, Version 4.4.0, Updated 10/25/2017)

Notes Edit

  • Unlike Proximity Mines, Cluster Mines do not deal critical hits. Any crits rolled cause normal damage.
  • With the errata'd detonation text, each die rolled has a 50% chance of dealing a damage, and expected damage per mine is about 1.0. Per mine, probability is about 50% for one damage, 25% for two damage, and 25% for no damage.
  • With the original detonation text, expected damage per mine was about 0.75. Per mine, probability was 30/64 (47%) for one damage, 9/64 (14%) for two damage, and 25/64 (39%) for no damage. (source)
