The best soldiers that either the Imperials or the Rebels can train still need good leaders to fully realize their potential. And the entire military strategy can’t be just left to chance. Someone needs to be in charge of it. The Rise of the Empire expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion will bring ...

Well, it’s Saturday. My day was looking like it might be a bit dull, but then a friend was like, “Hey, let’s have everyone come over and game.” and I was like, “done and done. I just need to type up a post first.” So, that’s the sacrifice I’m making for...

When you’re playing an RPG, you want the rules to be present, but not get in the way of the game. And with all the options that a player’s character can have, it can be really easy to forget how something works, or forget you have some special bonus at all. Thankfully, there’s resou...

Emperor Palpatine seized control during a time of turmoil. He manipulated events so he could claim himself as undisputed leader. This left a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths, as they were used to the freedom granted by the Republic. As such, a rebellion was quickly formed to fight against ...

Wars are not one or lost on just a single battle. Sure, there might be one, climactic event that ends things, but there’s a long chain of other battles, logistics, secret missions, intelligence, and other such along the way that got to that battle. In Star Wars: Rebellion, you have to complete ...

In any fantasy RPG, someone’s almost always going to pick the rogue to play. You know, they want to be sneaky, staying in the shadows, picking locks, stealing pants off of unwitting bar patrons, backstabbing with a ballista… That kind of thing. Players that like that kind of character can...

It’s never good when a prisoner escapes prison. When that prisoner is an elder god who can destroy the world, it’s a bit extra-imperative to make sure they get back to where they belong. Such is the case with Cities in Ruin. Shudde M’ell is shaking his prison beneath the Heart of Af...

The Uthuk Y’llan are a dastardly race that terrorized Terrinoth centuries ago. Over that time, they were reduced to legends. Scary tales to tell children around campfires. But those tales were true. And now they’re back to reclaim what had been theirs. At the end of their units, the comma...

It’s always important to make sure you and your opponent are on the same page when it comes to rules. It’s also good to see that a company is supporting a game they make, wanting it to be as good and balanced as possible. If you’re a Star Wars: Armada player, you’ll want to ch...

One thing about many secondary weapons in the X-Wing Miniatures Game is that most of them run out after just a single use. There’s an upgrade where you can get a second shot with your missiles or bombs, but still, that’s it. Well, with the upcoming release of the Scurrg H-6 Bomber, anothe...

Grand Admiral Thrawn. Yeah, I just got a little giddy there, too. I might just have to build me a Star Wars: Destiny deck that has him as one of the characters. I’ll be able to do so once Star Wars: Destiny’s newly-announced set, Empire at War, hits store shelves. That’s going to be...

Last weekend, I got to watch my first full game of Runewars. It’s an interesting-looking game. The two players were playing a 200 point army, which is apparently a “standard size.” Though, since both really just had a couple starter-boxes to go with, it was kind of a stretch to get ...

I’ve always been more of a “dog person” than a “cat person.” And within that, I’ve always preferred the larger breeds (German Shepherd and Great Pyrenees) to the smaller ones. However, if I could get a Leonx and have it as a pet, yeah, I’d probably want to ri...

“Let the wookie win.” Well, you probably don’t want to let that extend to “ships piloted by wookies or used around the planet of Kashyyk” because then you might not be winning too many more games of X-Wing, as Fantasy Flight is coming out with the Auzituck Gunship. They&...
