A Christmas Dinner with Destiny!

T’was the month before Christmas..
Not a dice left unturned,
As the gamer’s life of Copenhagen,
Through cards and booze they burned!

4 Ways to Be a Product Champion

Last December, while visiting my FLGS (friendly local game store), I saw a gravity feed of Star Wars: Destiny Awakenings.  Knowing nothing of the game (but being an avid fan of card games and Star Wars), I purchased one of each Awakenings starter and five booster packs.  My first legendary was a Millennium Falcon (AW49); it went in a Finn deck – clearly primed for FFG World Championships.  After lovingly forcing my wife to play a few games, I realized I needed other people to play this amazing game.

Here are a few tips on how you can become your local product champion and help build your local scene.
