Fantasy Flight Games Previews Podracing in Star Wars: Destiny

“Objection, your honor! The podrace was pretty cool.”
Generally the only thing that most people can agree on that was cool in the Prequel trilogy for Star Wars, Podracing (that seems to have about a 50% mortality rate per race, which makes you wonder how there’s ever enough racers to hold an event, but that’s beside the point) is coming to Star Wars: Destiny. In this preview, we get a look at some podracers, their pods, and how they will work in the game.

Draft Packs Now Available For Star Wars: Destiny

I love draft events. Sure, there’s something to creating a deck ahead of time and making sure it’s as tightly-wound as you can. But there’s also something to flying by the seat of your pants, making your deck from a limited set of cards and having to use only your wits and skill to make it through. Star Wars: Destiny has new draft packs that you can use to have some cool events with.

Fantasy Flight Announces Holiday Preview Wave For Star Wars: Destiny: Legacies Expansion

So, how about that Episode VIII, eh?
… I’ve not seen it, actually. But a lot of my friends have (which means they can shut up about “OMG!! Don’t spoil anything for me!!!”)
Well, I don’t think that there’s anything that’s spoiled in the Star Wars: Destiny Legacies expansion for the movie, but previewer beware. Fantasy Flight is giving you a chance to check out the new set before it’s released as a pair of mini-waves, one of which is out today.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Rivals Draft Set For Star Wars Destiny

Some of you might’ve heard that there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out soon. There’s also a new set for the Star Wars: Destiny game coming out soon. But the main release for that is still a bit off. What will be coming sooner, though, is the Rivals Draft Pack. If you’re in one of the few areas that’ll be getting pre-release versions of this, you can get your game going sooner. For those of us that aren’t in those areas, we can still check out this preview.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Yellow Cards From Star Wars: Destiny: Legacy Expansion

The Star Wars galaxy is filled with all manner of characters on the fringes. They don’t necessarily follow any particular ideology. They’re just looking out for themselves. They’re a resourceful lot, making-do in a galaxy that’s struggling with war. In the Legacy expansion for Star Wars: Destiny, these characters and their kind are colored yellow. But don’t think that means they’re not up for a fight. Get a look at what you’ll be able to add to your decks with this preview.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews New Star Wars: Destiny Starters

Well, you gotta start somewhere. Might as well start at the beginning. This is where we got the job, so this is the beginning. That job? Well, either bounty hunting or saving the galaxy from a tyrannical regime. Take your pick, depending on which of the new Star Wars: Destiny starter sets you want to pick up. They have one that features famed hunter Boba Fett, while the other focuses on everyone’s favorite moister farmboy, Luke Skywalker. Take a look at what you’ll be getting in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Star Wars: Destiny Draft Packs

I haven’t played a collectable game in quite some time. Mostly I’ve just not had the time to keep up with them. But back when I did, my favorite format to play in was draft. It’s seat-of-your-pants gaming. You go in not knowing what your deck was going to consist of and leave it to the draft to build your deck for you. Well, that style of format is coming to Star Wars: Destiny with the Rivals Draft Packs, just announced by Fantasy Flight Games.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Yellow Cards From Empire at War

The color yellow, at least in certain cultures, has often been associated with being cowardly. “What are ya, yellah?” is something you’ve possibly heard in some old western movie. But the yellow cards in Star Wars: Destiny are hardly a bunch of cowards. Empire at War proves that with a bunch of new cards coming out in that color, of which they have posted a preview here.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Star Wars: Destiny 2-Player Starter

Happy Force Friday and stuff! (slightly paraphrased from a saying we have here in the office on Fridays)
With all of the new Star Wars toys and such that are coming out, we’ve got an announcement from Fantasy Flight Games about a new product they’re releasing. In this case, it’s the new 2-Player Starter Set for Star Wars: Destiny. And you don’t have to wait to get it. You can go pick up one now.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Champions of the Force in Empire at War

When talking about the Star Wars universe, a thing that really sets it apart from some other sci-fi universes is the Force. It’s the magical, mystical … umm… force… caused by bacteria or something… (man, the Prequels really kicked the lore right in the junk, didn’t it?). Anyway, Force-users tend to get a lot of the spotlight, and that holds true for the various games based on the setting. Star Wars: Destiny is no different. Check out the new champions coming in the Empire at War expansion.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Red Characters From Empire at War Expansion for Star Wars: Destiny

You know, there’s a big difference when previewing items. By that, I mean, if some company were to show you 1/10 of a new figure they were working on, you’d get, like, a kneecap or something. If someone were previewing their new rules set, but only showed you 1/10 of it, you might get a page or two. In this preview for Empire at War, the upcoming Star Wars: Destiny expansion, Fantasy Flight is showing off 14 cards. That’s less than 1/10 of the 160 cards coming in the set, but it certainly feels like a huge preview. In this case, it’s various red cards.

New Star Wars: Destiny Set Announced By Fantasy Flight Games

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 sometime in the 3rd quarter of this year.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Blue Villains from Spirit of Rebellion

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 Star Wars: Destiny will expand the options for Dark Side players to add some Force-users and Force powers to their decks.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Previews Blue Heroes For Spirit of Rebellion

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 decks with some new blue heroes and abilities when Spirit of Rebellion comes out.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts Preview of the Red Villains in Spirit of Rebellion

The Imperial Military Machine was quite a sight to behold. The First Order inherited many of the doctrines of the Galactic Empire, continuing the tradition of things like Storm Troopers and TIE Fighters. You’ll be able to bring those fighters to your tabletops in Spirit of Rebellion for Star Wars: Destiny via a new group of red cards and their accompanying dice.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Yellow Villains From Spirit of Rebellion

There’s a lot of shady characters out there. Some are just “more out for themselves than anyone else,” while others are downright evil (or were programmed that way). They use all sorts of underhanded tactics in order to get ahead. In Star Wars: Destiny, this translates to many surprises for your opponent or tough choices during combat. Get a look at some of the villainous yellow cards in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Yellow Cards From Spirit of Rebellion

Ummm… be warned. One of them involves the prequels.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Spirit of Rebellion Pre-Release Event

Gamers are notorious for wanting to be the first ones on their block with the latest and greatest games. They also love getting cool swag that others won’t be able to get. Add those two together, and you’ve got a good reason to hold pre-release events for your games. Certainly, Fantasy Flight Games thinks so, and they’re having a Spirit of Rebellion pre-release event to prove it.

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 had another Star Wars movie come out since then, and so Rogue One is getting a bit of a feature in these first new expansion packs.

Review Roundup

The holiday season is well and truly upon us. It’s the last weekend before Christmas and all through the house, my D&D group had to cancel because everyone had last-minute stuff come up due to the holiday and the end of the year :/ … But waddyagonnado? Me? I’m gonna probably bake some cookies and just chill, watching some Christmas movies, including MST3K’s Manos, the Hand of Fate. Why is that a Christmas movie? Because it’s in the same 2-disk box with Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. But that’s me.

As for the exact moment, it’s time to get you a bunch of reviews.

Today we have: Mythos Tales, BattleGoats, Murder at Blood Mansion, Timeline: British History, The Refuge, Ice Cool, You Gotta Be Kitten Me, Colony, CVlizations, Star Wars: Destiny, Pocket Madness, The King’s Armory, La Granja: No Siesta, Escape Room: the Game, Ponzi Scheme, Doom: The Board Game, Deathwatch: Overkill, and Blood Bowl (2016 Edition).

Fantasy Flight Games Posts How To Play Video For Star Wars: Destiny

We’ve been getting Star Wars: Destiny previews for a while now. We’ve seen what the different colors of cards mean, and a bit about the dice a long time ago. But we’ve never really gotten it all put together as to how the game actually works. If you’ve been astute and really read into the different articles, I’m sure you could’ve figured most of it out, but Fantasy Flight is here to help with any missing bits by post up a Learn to Play article and video about the game.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Yellow Cards For Star Wars Destiny

While the sides in Star Wars are generally broken up rather simply to Light and Dark sides of the force, like everything in life, it’s not really that simple. There’s the 3rd “faction” to deal with. They’re the smugglers, the bounty hunters, the thieves, and many others just looking to get by any way they can. Sure, they might lean towards “good” or “bad,” but they’re their own. In Star Wars: Destiny, they also get their own color of card: yellow.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Blue Cards For Star Wars Destiny

Blue cards *hears horses whinny off in the distance* … aren’t the “Good guys” as one might initially think in Star Wars Destiny. It’s not that red cards represent the dark side of the force while blue means light (which would be an easy assumption to make. Just look at lightsaber colors). No, blue cards *horses whinny again* … represent those who are Force-sensitive and the powers and gear they tend to use.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Rey Starter For Star Wars Destiny

There’s at least two sides to every story. We’ve seen the Kylo Ren starter for Star Wars Destiny. So now let’s take a look at the new Jedi on the block, Rey, and her starter for Star Wars Destiny.
