Star Wars: Destiny Panel at NOVA Open

For many of us, it feels like we’ve been playing Star Wars: Destiny forever, when in actuality, the game has only been around about nine months. That brief time period was discussed in a panel held at the NOVA Open, and The Chance Cube was there to listen in. The panel consisted of the winner of the U.S. national tournament, Nick Wilson, and the runner-up, Matt Schmaltz; content providers, Rick from The Knights of Ren, and our own Ruben Sanchez; and one of the designers of Star Wars: Destiny, Jeremy Zwirn from Fantasy Flight Games. Zach Bunn of Team Covenant acted as moderator, asking for responses from the panel members before allowing a few questions from the audience.… Read More

Empire at War July Teaser Reaction – Part 2

On Friday, Fantasy Flight Games dropped a (huge) teaser for the upcoming expansion to Star Wars: Destiny, Empire at War. In the past, their teasers have been in chunks based on color and faction, but this latest one is about Red cards and dice on both the Hero and Villain sides. This leads to a Death Star-sized teaser, which we will discuss in two separate articles. The first article focused on those Characters, Upgrades, and Support cards with corresponding dice. This article will be about the Support and Event cards without any dice.… Read More

Errata! Errata! Read all about it!!!

So in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, as you read this article, some new errata for Fast Hands (SR150) and Ammo Belt(SR141) have come out. Fast Hands is now Yellow Character only, and Ammo Belt can only be used on weapons. These updates to the cards comes at a time where ePoe/eMaz is at it’s prime, and while it’s not the fix that some were looking for, it is going to slow down that deck a little bit and make it a little easier to handle.… Read More

Announcing Season 2 of The Chance Cube’s Meta Tracker

As you may have heard by now, FFG released their latest Rules Reference. Due to the erratas of Fast Hands (SR150) and Ammo Belt (SR141) in this latest Rules Reference (v1.4), we will be entering our 2nd season of our Meta Tracker. Nothing is going to change except that our weekly Meta Report will use data from the effective date of the Rule Reference (7/10/17) instead of the launch date of Spirit of Rebellion. The upcoming Meta Report will be the first Meta Report to apply this new start date for it’s data. In addition to that, we will being linking that last report in every Meta Report going forward for the rest of season 2. The Store Championship Meta Tracker page will now feature 3 sections instead of just the one: one for data before the erratas, one after the erratas, and one with all of the data together. Thank you for your contributions, it is because of you that we can provide this resource to the community. I know I, for one, am curious to see what will happen to the meta now.
