Immersion in Destiny – II. A Great Theme These Card Abilities Have

Welcome back. In part two of our little series on how the Star Wars theme is brought to the game, we will look at certain card abilities that just are very thematic. While there have been a ton of spoilers over the last week or so, and it is getting hard to keep up with all the news, here are my favorite thematic abilities from what I have seen so far.

To start off we look at a card that was just spoiled over the weekend. General Grievous (AW3) is a red villain character who boosts 10 health backed up by a high damage die. He comes with 10 wounds for 13 points or 18 in the elite version. His ability lets him steal a non-ability upgrade from a dying opponent character. How fitting is that for a Jedi Hunter who collects the lightsabers of the ones slain by him? And obviously, if his latest victim does not have a lightsabre, the General is flexible enough to accept another weapon or a piece of equipment as an alternative trophy.

Another card that I really like for its ability is One With The Force (AW42). It is a powerful hero blue upgrade which costs 4 resources, but it has an amazing die without blanks. You can only put it on a force user, but the upgrade becomes a permanent after the character dies. Given that the artwork shows old Obi-Wan, I initially thought that he his spirit guides the character. However, then I realized that the artwork is a force spirit. So it is not Obi-Wan helping out, but rather the blue character her- or himself becomes one with the force during life and therefore learns new powers and upon defeat it is the force spirit of the deceased who lingers on and interacts with the physical world for a while, helping and guiding the rest of the team.… Read More

I Make My Own Luck

Central to success in any game with an appreciable amount of luck is having a strategy for mitigating the role that luck plays. This is particularly true in dice games, and Star Wars: Destiny consequently offers many options to manipulate both your own and your opponent’s’ dice. However, there is one key moment in the game in which dice alone may contribute to your fate – the roll off to determine who selects the battlefield at the beginning of the game. However, despite your inability to modify your roll off results, you do affect your odds when you select the characters that you bring to the table.… Read More

Hello and welcome to today’s card analysis. We’ll be tackling one of the lately revealed cards, from the Military Might, and that is Scout (AW33).

Scout is a Red hero upgrade/ability card, which comes with a die.
