Rogue One and Star Wars: Destiny

Please note that the following article contains minor spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

So first things first, Rogue One was a very good movie. It had the legs to stand alone as an entry into the Star Wars universe.  Not only did it have something for viewers who weren’t Star Wars fans, but it was slammed full of amazing references that die hard fans are sure to pick up on. My personal favorite was when they are walking out to the hanger and Captain Syndulla gets paged; I’m all for Star Wars: Rebel references!

Beginners Guide to Destiny Part I: Choosing your Strategy

Star Wars: Destiny is a collectable card and dice game where two or more players battle each other with 30 card decks and 30 points worth of Characters.  The only true limit on deck construction is the 30 card limit and that players cannot have more than 2 copies of any one card.  As far as your Characters are concerned, you are limited by the fact that you cannot have more than 1 of the same unique Character (but can include 2 dice for that character), and a maximum of 30 points of Characters.

That is a lot of information to absorb, even for a game that was just recently released and has only 174 cards in the first set, Awakenings. But, it is very relevant and players need to understand what they are facing every time they play this game.  Why?  Because each player needs to know what the deck and character limitations are when they build their deck, as well as when deciding what strategies they want when designing their deck.

There are two ways to win a game of Star Wars: Destiny. Taken from page 14 in the Reference Guide: The first is to defeat all of your opponent’s Characters.  The game ends immediately when that happens.  The second is if your opponent has no cards in their hand and deck at the end of a round (after the upkeep phase).  So, you could have no cards in your hand and deck and still be able to win if you deal enough damage to defeat your opponents Characters that round.

So, with that in mind, what Strategy should you use? Truthfully?  The first thing you need to look at is your collection of cards, specifically your Characters and dice cards.  You need to be able to field the cards that can allow you to accomplish your Strategy. … Read More

Star Wars: Destiny Tabletop Simulator League Match Results (Part 1)

For those of you who do not know, the Star Wars: Destiny Tabletop Simulator League Season 1 started up, December 12th.  This 8-week league pits players from all over the world against each other.  Players are grouped into pods of 8, trying as much as possible to keep players in the same pod who can play at the same time.  You play two games against each player in your pod, and results are recorded on the Challonge.com website.  You are allowed to switch decks between games and opponents, and you don’t have to play both games against the same opponent at the same time.  I was assigned to Group R.  I will post how each of my matches go on The Chance Cube.
