Today, we share an article from guest author Simon Turner about his experiences in the Australian Nationals.

A Report From a Casual Gamer
By Simon Turner

“What? You never play decks that can win!” He says. “I like Wookiees.”

Saturday, October 7th marked the Star Wars:Destiny Australian National Championship with a field of 99 participants.

[Editor’s Note: This article was written before the release of Empire at War, and will not include any cards from the set.]
So as most of you know, I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Han/Rey, and I’m finally of the opinion that they just won’t work for me. So I have taken that deck apart and am now working on a Darth Vader (AW10) and Royal Guard (SR12).
Then of course, we just got this fancy new two-player starter set with new cards.… Read More
