We’ve not been hearing much about Star Wars: Armada recently. It would seem that was due to a manufacturing issue that pushed the Wave II releases from 3rd quarter to 4th quarter. However, things seem to have worked themselves out and the latest sets will soon be making their way to your tablet...

Tattooine has a certain… reputation in the Star Wars universe. It’s not exactly the nicest planet to land on. You’ve gotta be careful about where you go, who you talk to, what cantinas you go into. Even veteran warriors can be caught unawares. Han Solo, for example. He’s got a...

There’s a good chance we’ll have people walk on Mars at some point in our lifetime. What will they find when they get there? Sure, we’ve got those couple rovers on the surface and some probes flying around, but that’s no real substitute for several people going around and seei...

I know we don’t do much in the way of “grainy, leaked images” around here on TGN, but when it’s a property like Star Wars and a game that’s got such a following as the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight Games, we’ll make an exception....

The galaxy far, far away is a big place. There’s hundreds of races, each with billions of people (or, I guess “people”), spread across thousands of planets. Obviously, there’s going to be some variation between different individuals. So creating rules sets to let you play all ...

The wait is finally over. The Rebels no longer are the only ones that have the huge-scale ships for X-Wing. Imperial players rejoice, as the Imperial Raider is now available at retail outlets. Sure, sure, you might’ve gotten one at Gen Con. But that’s only, like a couple of you. The rest ...

Fantasy Flight Games has several products based on Games Workshop’s Warhammer license. There’s already the Warhammer: Invasion card game (along with some others). But that’s an LCG. What if you want a stand-alone card game you can break out with friends and not have them need their ...

At Gen Con, companies get to show off some awesome new things they’ve been working on. Fantasy Flight’s display case is always full of gamers eager to catch a sneak-preview of the latest releases. I was able to get in a little early and get some photos of their case after they put out the...

Sometimes, just playing the good guys in a game can get old. The same can be said for just playing the bad guys. What if you want to play both the heroes and the monsters? There’s not much chance for something like that. However, in Cave Troll, that’s just what you get to do. And [&hellip...

Star Wars: A New Hope, for those that might not have realized it, is told through the perspective of the two droids, C-3PO and R2-D2. Except for a few scenes here and there, they’re in most of them. And the story follows not Luke or Han, but the droids. The film is about getting the […]...

The cast of characters in Star Wars is pretty big, both in terms of named characters and just character archetypes. Though they don’t have a full background, or even usually a name to go with their face, they’re no less iconic to the setting. Well, two of those types of character were jus...

Boba Fett, the biggest badass of the original Star Wars trilogy (who never really did much of anything, but hey, screen presence), is coming to Imperial Assault. There, he’ll have the potential to do a lot more than he did on-screen (if the dice say so, anyway. It’s always up to the dice&...

I’ve always been a fan of heavy ordinance. A-10 Warthogs have been my favorite military aircraft for decades (I even had the G.I. Joe version when I was a kid). So when you see the TIE Bomber for those few seconds in Empire Strikes Back, those became my favorite couple of seconds. Well, little ...
