Well, we know how you move your figures into combat with each other in Runewars, but what about once you actually get there? How is combat figured out? Flip a coin? Rock, Paper, Scissors? Tickle contest? Apparently, it’s none of those. What it is is previewed in this article they posted....

Droids are an everyday part of the Star Wars world. They’re basically everywhere, filling in roles in all parts of life. As such, they should also be pretty common in the various games made about the universe. And it’s not just the more well-known ones such as R2-D2 and C-3PO, either. Wit...

It’s a beautiful Saturday here in Atlanta. The sun’s shining. It’s warm outside. … Sounds like a perfect time to go to the LGS and stay inside, playing games all day! 😀 And to those dealing with ice up in the midwest, best to stay inside and play some games all day. Long story...

*meditates* Inner peace… Inner peace… Inner peace… *grooves along to Static-X while meditating, because why not?* Even though the Jedi were wiped out once, there are those that still follow the Light Side of the Force. They’re those that use the Force for knowledge and clarity...

A very good friend of mine is getting married today. Tradition has it that he’ll carry his new bride across the threshold later. I’m hoping that his evening doesn’t turn into a Lovecraftian horror story after that point… Though I have a feeling he’d find that pretty cool...

I have to admit something: I never want to go out into the ocean. There’s just too many things out there in it that I don’t know anything about and it kinda creeps me out. Simply not for me. That sort of fear of the water can be brought right to my tabletop, if I […]...

Star Wars: Destiny is the new card and dice game from Fantasy Flight where players build their own fantasy team and attack their opponents using equipment and abilities taken from all over the Star Wars universe. The initial release was pretty well tied in with The Force Awakens. Well, we’ve ha...

I remember playing the original Doom video game at my neighbor’s house. My friend had the game and we played all the time. You really could die pretty easily in it, and we very often did. That was good, of course, since it meant you weren’t far from having your own turn playing. And who [...

While some units have ranged attacks and could theoretically just be deployed and stay there the entire game, for most figures on the field, that’s not really an option. You’re going to have to get your figures from one side of the board to the other. But how does that work, exactly? That...

It was quite a big deal when the Rebels got their first huge-sized ship for X-Wing. I’ve still been meaning to pick up a Tantiv-IV, just because it’s a cool model, even though I don’t regularly play X-Wing anymore. A while later, the Imperials got their epic ship. But the game has 3...

I’m not so sure I’d want to sit on the Iron Throne. I mean, that just doesn’t seem comfy at all. And how many people have gotten tetanus from just getting a little scratch from all those swords? But if you’re not like me and sitting on that throne does sound intriguing, you ca...

As we’ve seen, considering what happened to Han Solo, it’s best to not get on the bad side of a powerful Hutt… or the Empire… and especially don’t get on the bad side of both. However, when a force statue has gone missing, and everyone seems to be searching for it, you j...

Last year, Fantasy Flight Games announced Runewars, their new rank-and-file fantasy miniatures game based on their Terrinoth world, previously seen in Runebound. The system is a mix of various other games they have, including the X-Wing Miniatures Game, giving you a pair of Command Dials that you wil...

While you may not think that you need their kind of scum, Bounty Hunters are a rather iconic part of the Star Wars universe. Though they had relatively little screen time, people just went nuts over them, particularly the fan-favorite Boba Fett. Well, for those that want to become bounty hunters, the...

Little trinkets. It seems as though a lot of people will go to a lot of trouble to acquire certain little trinkets. I mean, the odd, little statue called Tragic Hope can’t be that important of an item, can it? Apparently, several very important individuals think it is. You’ve got a Hutt c...

Star Wars: Armada scales up the battles by scaling down the ships. Though the big ships like Star Destroyers and Mon Calamari Cruisers might take center stage, any admiral would be remiss to ignore the smaller ships and fighter squadrons. There’s a new batch for both the Imperials and Rebels co...

A lot of my friends went and saw Rogue One last night. I know a lot more that will see it tonight/over the weekend. Personally, I’m gonna let the crowds die down a little bit before I go… I think they’ve almost died down enough to go see The Force Awakens. But that doesn’t mea...

People love choice. It gives you the ability to tailor-make your experience to exactly what you want. With a game, it can also create replayability. Even for a game as open-ended as The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen, having variants with which you can play the game will hopefully havin...

Well, the weekend is over. Mine didn’t quite turn out like I’d hoped. Didn’t get a chance to do any gaming, but did have a chance to do some cooking. This year’s fruitcake is a success, I’d say. Just need to get more people to give it a try. But anyway, let’s get s...

While most of us think of the formidable Imperial-class Star Destroyer when we think of the Imperial armada, there’s plenty of smaller craft that would be used, particularly out on the Outer Rim, when sending a whole ISD would be overkill (even in Imperial standards). That’s where the Imp...

One of my favorite movies is The Adventures of Baron Munchausen that Terry Gilliam did. Based on one of the best-selling books of all time, it recounts several of the adventures of the titular Baron Munchausen, who always insists that his stories are 100% accurate, even if they don’t seem entir...

Not every ship in your armada is going to be the “big guns, blow apart the enemy” sort of ship. There are going to be those ships that simply make all your other ships more “big guns, blow apart the enemy.” That’s what you get with the Phoenix Home. You’re not goin...
