However, it can be one of the most important decisions as the battleground can both help you and hurt you at the same time.  And not just by dealing damage.  You need to give careful consideration to not only what battleground you take, or even if you want (or need) to take your battlefield if you win the initial dice roll.

Remembering Carrie Fisher Together

The Star Wars community is feeling the loss of Carrie Fisher, the actress who brought Princess Leia to life.  Without her attidude, spirit, devotion to her fans, and real approach to the character, we would not have the Princess Leia we know and love today.

In an effort to pay tribute to her, we are asking for anyone who wants to share with us their thoughts about Carrie Fisher to leave us a voice mail. You can let us know your favorite Princess Leia moment, how she has impacted your life through her character, what she meant to you personally, or just a message about how she will be missed.  It does not have to be related to Star Wars: Destiny, though it can be if you so choose.

Messages left with us may be used in our next episode of The Chance Cube.

Call 4-CHANCE-360… that’s 424-262-3360.

Ruben’s TTS League Report – Episode I

Hello fellow dice throwers! Welcome to the TTS League Report for the most incredible game in this galaxy called Star Wars: Destiny. In this article and subsequent ones I will discuss each game I play against in the league tournament. I plan to discuss my initial thoughts, how the game went, any changes I plan to do for each round, and my final thoughts. I also want the reader to keep in mind that i am using only the cards I own in my collection. I suppose I can maximize each card but I know that in a real tournament if I don’t have the card, I cannot use it.  The Tournament Organizer told all players they can switch out decks in between games and/or cards.
