Dice Games


Many games have mechanics where you can put upgrades on stuff in your forces. Attachments or somesuch that makes your piece better. In the upcoming set for Star Wars: Destiny, Fantasy Flight is headed in the other direction. It will include Downgrades that you can play on your opponent's cards in order to hamper them. In this preview, we get a look at some of them that'll be coming in the set.

With card games, one of the ways you can play is by simply opening up some packs and building with whatever you might find inside. This drafting format makes players think differently about their decks, basically having to work with what they're given in a short amount of time. Fantasy Flight is creating a new draft pack for their Star Wars: Destiny game, and they're showing off what you can find inside.

WizKids is just on a roll with their new game announcements lately. That was not intended as a pun, but considering that their latest announcement is for Quarriors! Qualtimate Quedition (reminds me of how they name Rick & Morty episodes), I can see how that could be taken that way. Roll? Dice? Get it? Anyway, you can expect this new version to hit game store shelves soon.

Darth Vader. The whole Star Wars saga revolves around him, from his origins, through his rise and fall, to the fallout left by him and his progeny. He's a major player, and so, as you would expect, he's a major part of Star Wars games, including Star Wars: Destiny. In this preview, we get a look at various Darth Vader cards and accessories.

Hey everyone,
Sorry about the posts the other day. As I'd mentioned previously, I wasn't at the office the last couple days. And, well, you know the old saying, "if it isn't one thing, it's another"? That kinda sums up my last 2 days. Not anything godawful, but just... "well... ok, then."
So, you kinda got a quick bit of stories this morning, and with the Review Roundup, hopefully we'll be back on track here.

Anyway, today we have: Ganz Schon Clever, Getaway Driver, Onitama: Sensei’s Path Expansion, Impulse, Alien Artifacts, and Tadmor.

Hop into your pod racer, see some of your favorite characters, grab their equipment, and fight either for or against the Dark Side with a whole plethora of new options for your decks. The set covers pretty much every era of the Star Wars saga.

"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.

Most games, you take the components out of the box and set it aside, not to really be thought about. Well, Tiny Ninjas actually takes their box and transforms it into a playing space, meaning the game can be gotten out and played just about anywhere. Face off in this head-to-head cards and dice game, that's exclusively up on Kickstarter now.

Seafood. Some people love it. Others not so much. But either way, it's big business. There's money to be made out there, collecting the bounty of the ocean. Fleets of ships head out, cast their next and bring home the catch. And that's just what you'll be doing in Fleet: The Dice Game, a new game from Eagle-Gryphon Games that's up on Kickstarter now.

Man, I wish I could go out into space. You know, head to distant planets. Take control of huge space stations. Build fleets of ships to help get and trade resources. That kind of thing. Sadly, at the moment, you can only get to space if you're an astronaut or ridiculously wealthy. Being neither of those things, if I want to do all that stuff listed at the top, I'll just have to live vicariously through Space Base, a new dice game available now from AEG.
