So how do you all feel about a Navy Darth Vader and a Sith Darth Vader?  You know a Rebel Luke will happen in the Hoth Cycle as well.  Rebel Han will happen sooner or later too.  Any other crossovers you can think of?

 

I like that we are getting another Vader. It seems early as it is the first pack but still it's Darth Freaking Vader so it is not a bad thing having another version of one of fictions most iconic villains. I think what we can tell of his ability is very fitting, represents him "inspiring" the troops with his presence. I have already built an Imperial Navy swarm deck and this looks like it will be right at home there.

Anyone had any luck getting a pic of these three cards ? I hope the art for Imperial Vader is the art from A Dark Time with the snowtroopers.

Your reaction and other's are exactly what he/she is looking for. Don't feed the trolls, people.

Also, some great cards (not all, but enough). Can't wait.

Personally, I enjoyed the link. It's been a while since I was Rickroll'd.

So I notice that there is a new set being released. I just found the base set finally for sale. Is there only one expansion, or did I miss the first two?

None of the expansions are actually out yet.  There are just card previews.

First Force Pack, Desolation of Hoth, will be released in February.

I actually find a February release unlikely as it is still listed as "In Development" and it would most likely need to already be "On The Boat" by now in order to pull of a February release.

FFG previewed it in November and they almost always do previews 3 months in advance, usually with major releases there is a one month break before cycle starts, numerous online retailers point to February as do distributor solicitation magazines like Game Trade Magazine. So for now barring any delays go with February.

You're quite a bit more optimistic than I am if you think they can finish development, do all of the printing, ship it to their warehouse in MN, and then ship it from MN to the retailers in the next 6 weeks.  I hope you're right, but the shipment from the printers to them can take 6 weeks by itself…

I've been collecting FFG stuff for years. The Upcoming Page status is not always accurate. 

However another way to look at it is according to upcoming page pack 1 is Q1, pack 2 is Q1 and pack 3 is Q3. Only way for that to work is Feb, Mar, Apr. 

Now if there is a printing delay this is all subject to change.

So what is the deal with this page - is it an error?

link

The page has prices, with "A Dark Time" saying it can be bought now, with the others not available.

Lol, yes that is an error. A funny one too since A Dark Time is the third pack. I'll report that one to the webmaster.

Thanks. I am super excited to get my stuff in the mail this weekend, but wanted to get caught up with all the gear I needed.

 

Also, I know it is off topic, but is it a good idea to purchase 2x of these packs. I don't have experience with fixed pack games, so I am a little unsure.

Force Packs come with two of each objective set unless it says Limit of 1 in which case you get one. So you will never need more than one pack unless you want to use the same sets in multiple decks at the same time.

Your going to love this game Adam. It's a great change of pace from swccg.

 

Yes you only need to buy one of each Force pack. Would you guys be upset if they call the future prequel packs "Midiclorian Packs"?

I am excited. My stuff comes in the mail soon. I am planning on coming your way later on this year; so I fully expect a tour of the gaming center and some time to play a few rounds. Beside you and Jeeps, any other locals I know playing?

They just Rick rolled everybody. Classic.

 

 

 

Stupid waste of time you mean.

 

Toq don't joke!

 

To add, I'm really interested in this cycle. The Hoth expansion for SWCCG was one of my favorites. Target the main generators!!
