Ongoing eCad/ePhasma Part 2… er… umm I meant eKylo/Grevious…

Sooooo.. yeah… Errata happened.. and well, my original ongoing series got, well… murdered! Maybe not murdered per se, but the deck needed to be changed since eCad/ePhasma was no longer a legal deck. I took another vote… this time even branching outside of just the The Chance Cube’s hangout (Shameless plug to become a Patron!). The voters were VERY clear on who they wanted me to work on and it was eKylo (TP1)/Grievous (AW3).

So last night I decided to run a version of my own making, taking with it what I have used before in other decks that are similar.… Read More

Card Staples: Crash Landing (LG 137) – Our Newest 0-Cost Removal

One of the most important aspects of any deck in Star Wars: Destiny is dice removal. Most dice removal cards come with a condition: giving your opponent a choice (e.g. Loth-Cat and Mouse (SR114)), requiring you to have dice in your pool (e.g. Guard (SR103)), forcing you to meet a play restriction (e.g. Defensive Position (AW104)), etc. Three things you should consider when deciding which dice removal cards to include in your deck are its play cost, playable situations, and place in the game.

Many of the best dice removal cards cost 1 resource to play: Electroshock (AW159), The Best Defense (AW75), and Isolation (AW85).  With the upcoming release of Legacies this December, we have another 0-cost removal card that is worth a look — Crash Landing (LG137).… Read More

Learning Through Losing

Star Wars: Destiny is a competitive game. There are few players who will show up to a Store Championship that would claim they are there just to have fun and see what happens. In a game where two players go head-to-head, one of them is going to lose. The desire to win is something that drives people to look at deck lists from people who win Store Championships, to build and run a deck that is finding success in the current Meta. But I would argue that there is more to learn from losing in Star Wars: Destiny than there is by winning.… Read More

Origins 2017 Recap

Another Origins Game Fair has come and gone, and with it, the first ever Star Wars: Destiny tournament at the convention. While FFG wasn’t “officially” at Origins, the good folks from Cascade Games out of Portland, Oregon, lead by Steve Cameron, ran several Destiny events for them over the five-day event, including Learn-to-Plays and a sealed pack tournament. My wife, Kim, and I spent all five days at Origins, checking out new tabletop games, playing old favorites, and, of course, playing Star Wars: Destiny and talking with The Chance Cube fans and listeners. … Read More

Star Wars Destiny First Experience and Store Championships

Earlier this year, I was introduced to the great game that is Star Wars: Destiny. Prior to Destiny, my experience was extended to games such as Magic: The Gathering and Magi-Nation. The greatest draw to me was that, for once, there was a game that was Star Wars-based that I could recognize and fully get behind without having to feel like I was lost in lore. From the beautiful artwork to the easy-to-follow gameplay, not to mention the great people I have met along the way, my experience with Star Wars: Destiny has been a treat.… Read More

The Chance Cube Open – Recap

Wow! The Chance Cube Open brought more excitement then we could have imagined.  We loved bringing this event to Worlds and thank everyone who attended and supported us! The final game came down to the last health point for the last character on each side! It was a nail biter until the very end. It was a tight competition, with five of the top eight going 4-1 overall.… Read More

Guest Post: Tournament Play Etiquette

Today, we share an article from guest author Paolo Fernandes, about the importance of etiquette and how to enjoy the tournament scene.

Tournament Play Etiquette

By Paolo Fernandes

 

I know playing Destiny is not at all about trophies or medals (but as are you all, I’m extremely excited Worlds is around the corner), and even less about fame and leaving a legacy to your family’s name. But we cannot deny a very large group of players have been drawn by how competitive Star Wars: Destiny can be. The competitive scene, as in any other game, can be both fun, engaging, and challenging, but also frustrating and disappointing, depending on how you experience it.… Read More
