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: Destin...

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 o...

The red cards in Star Wars: Destiny represent those characters, abilities, and equipment that’s all about warfare. They’re the professional soldiers, vehicles, and weapons that are on the lines when it comes to blasters blazing. The Legacies expansion will bring players new red card optio...

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...

The Force is something that sets the Star Wars universe apart from other sci-fi settings. Those that are strong in the Force can perform many great feats. They’re some of the most iconic characters in the series. In Star Wars: Destiny, those characters, their gear, and abilities are represented...

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...

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 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 wit...

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...

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 [...

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...

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...

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...

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 surpr...

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 r...

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 ...

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 l...
