If there’s one thing that the space battles in Star Wars taught us, it’s never underestimate the power of a fighter squadron. X-Wings and a light cruiser take out the Death Stars. An A-Wing crashing takes out the Executor. Squadrons of fighters can really swing a battle in your favor. And...

A couple of my friends have gotten deep into Runewars. They feel the game flows fairly well and plays rather smoothly. I’ve yet to really have a chance to give it a go (so many games, so little time… *sigh*). For those that were waiting for the game to get a few more miniatures out [&hell...

A good friend of mine used to be a combat engineer. That is to say that he blew up bridges for a living for a while. In the Star Wars universe, the Rebellion especially needs members who are force-equalizers like that, willing to go and take out the enemy’s ability to fight and get around. [&he...

You’d think that, after a while, people would start to take those that are warning about ancient evils coming to destroy the world more seriously. But nooooo. They didn’t listen to you. And now a city is in ruins and you need to work even harder to keep the ancient… things… fr...

In fantasy combat games, thinning out the enemy ranks before you enter melee with them is a must. You don’t want entire regiments of enemy soldiers meeting up with yours, if you can avoid it. In order to help out with that, the Daqan Lords in Runewars are getting some ranged support in the form...

Star Wars: Rebellion is getting a new expansion. This set takes much of its material from Star Wars: Rogue One. I should probably see that movie at some point. Anyway, the Empire has a new weapon they’re building. Something called the Death Star. The completion of it could mean the end of the R...

The Rebel Alliance is always looking for more people to join the cause. They don’t have the rigid structure and industrial capabilities like the Empire, and so each member of the Rebel Alliance must be extra resourceful and capable. That’s certainly the case with Hera Syndulla. And don...

Fantasy armies usually have a special, named hero or two in them, leading their troops into battle. The armies in Runewars are no different. Soon, the Daqan Lords will be able to add Lord Hawthorne (with or without his horse) to their forces. We get a look at what he’s capable of in this previe...

How’s everyone out there enjoying Runewars? I’ve not had much chance to look over it. We’ve got a set in the game library, but other projects have kept me from getting the game on the board, so I’ve only looked it over. The set, being just a starter, can certainly use some mor...

Power has a tendency to corrupt those with it. If you are a Force-user and you succumb to corruption, you’re on a train headed right to the Dark Side. But hey, shooting lightning out of your hands is pretty cool, if you ask me. I’d do it, if I could. Anyway, Spirit of Rebellion for [&hell...

When the Latari Elves make their way to tabletops, joining the other two factions of Runewars, Fantasy Flight doesn’t want them to lag behind in terms of options on the field. So, since there’s characters and command elements for the others, the elves are getting them, too. You can check ...

The Light Side of the Force has plenty of powerful allies. The Jedi looked to keep peace and order across the galaxy. The Emperor almost wiped them out, but he missed a couple. You can’t keep a good Jedi down too long, apparently. And you’ll be able to bulk up your Star Wars: Destiny deck...

This is one I’ve been waiting for. A while ago, Fantasy Flight Games announced that they were taking over the license for the Legend of the Five Rings card game. They were going to make it a Living Card Game and relaunch it at Gen Con 2017. It seemed so far away, then. But it’s […]...

Most board games out there are competitive. All the players are looking to be the one that wins. However, sometimes you aren’t wanting to take down your opponents, but team up and take on the game, itself. Or, everyone cancels on you and you find yourself wanting to game, but nobody’s aro...

“Finder’s keepers.” It’s basically the Jawa motto. Certainly, if they come across some droids out in the desert, they’re going to claim them as their own. And soon, that “what’s yours is mine and what’s mine is mine” attitude can make its way to y...
