My first experience with Star Wars was Episode I. I was watching it as a kid and really loved it at that time. Little did I know then about the classic trilogy and what was I missing. Later, I discovered computer games, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and, of course, Knights of the Old Republic. And I felt in love in both of them, and the whole universe. I started consuming movies, books and everything else Star Wars related really fast.

I highly enjoy many different card games, like Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, in some parts Yu-Gi-Oh!, Hearthstone, and whole line of FFG’s Living Card Games. But sadly, I wasn’t aware of Decipher’s Star Wars game when it was popular. So when FFG announced Star Wars: Destiny, I jumped on the bandwagon immediately.

I am really happy to be a part of The Chance Cube and the Star Wars: Destiny community, and I look forward to meeting and getting in touch with all of you guys. So if you want to contact me and talk about Destiny (or how awesome Revan and The Old Republic era was), feel free to mail me at jakub@thechancecube.com. And may the Force be with You!

Lifelong gamer extraordinaire hailing from The Great White North! I’ve been playing games of some kind since I could talk, starting with competitive 52 card card games like euchre and canasta, and of course board games of all kinds, mostly the Hasbro variety. I’m no stranger to online gaming and have played World of Warcraft since vanilla.

But about 5 years ago, I transitioned to mainly table top board gaming, and got into playing Dice Masters competitively for over 2 years before transitioning over to Destiny. I was a 2 time WKO winner in both Vancouver and Seattle, as well as placing in the top 5 in the US Nationals, as well as top 10 for Worlds. I hope to bring my competitive nature and experience over to Star Wars: Destiny! If you would like to contact me you can reach me at jenna@thechancecube.com

Hi, my name is Ken, everyone at the meeting together, “Hi Ken!” I haven’t had a new game in 3 weeks. “Everyone claps”. It’s been hard, I see the new games and remember that new game smell, the glistening of the cellophane as you gentle take it off the packaging, and then you ohhh so carefully take off the top box and there is a thing of beautify, the instruction manual!! Oh the hours of rippling through reading and absorbing all the information, I get chills still…

And this ladies and gentlemen is my introduction to, THE CUBE!! …. erm, THE CHANCE CUBE!!!

I have been a fellow gamer officially since I was about 7-8 getting into Monopoly, RISK, Stratego, Clue, all the other classics, I loved the interaction. My first real big gaming hit in the computer was Wolfenstein 3D. After that download I was hooked on gaming for the rest of my life! I started CCG back in the day with Magic and Overpower, magic wasn’t my thing as the fantasy setting wasn’t my cup of tea, but overpower was the bees knees with Super Heroes being the main selling point. I really enjoyed it and eventually got into more games as well. Being the nerdy man that I am, naturally I gravitated towards Star Wars games, I’ve played all forms of card, video and board games in Star Wars lines. They are always entertaining and the latest one Destiny is a huge hit.

I was into Heroclix majorly and previously wrote many articles on Hcrealms about new releases and the different Attack and X-wing games.

When I first saw Destiny I was hooked, I was skeptical like so many about the dice but when I got to hear from local players how good they were I was all in. I’ve since quit playing Heroclix and all the wing title games to focus on Destiny full time. Feel free to contact me at ken@thechancecube.com.

Matthew ScottMatthew Scott (San Antonio, TX)
Product Review Coordinator

I first delved into the world of board and card gaming when a friend introduced me to Magic: the Gathering in middle school. It wasn’t long, however, before Magic found itself on the back burner so that I could instead sink my minimal funds into a new game – the Star Wars Customizable Card Game by Decipher. Despite multiple attempts with friends, I never quite sorted out how to play properly. But I did spend hours collecting, sorting, and reading every punctuation mark on the flavor text of the cards. Obviously, from the moment that I heard about FFG’s upcoming release of Star Wars: Destiny, I was immediately transported back to my youth. I am absolutely thrilled that the Star Wars license is returning to a collectible game, and I couldn’t be happier about the very capable FFG being in control of it.

When I’m not nerding out about Star Wars and tabletop games, I’m a husband, father of a two year old, and a high school Biology teacher. I’m excited to be joining The Chance Cube, and I hope that I’ll be able to bring some unique perspectives and ideas to the table. If you’d like to reach me, please feel free to email me at matthew@thechancecube.com.
