This whole experience for me has felt like a roller coaster ride!
UP – FFG has the Star Wars license and are going to make an LCG.
DOWN – It’s a co-op LCG.
UP – They’re scraping the original design and going back to the drawing board.
DOWN – There is no news for a little over six months.
UP – It comes out at GenCon that it is now a PvP game.
DOWN – It’s not a recreation / reimagining of Decipher’s Star Wars CCG.
UP – Eric Lang is one of the designers and I really like Warhammer : Invasion LCG and Game of Thrones LCG.
DOWN – You can’t include the best 60 cards in your deck but have to build your deck with pods of 6 cards (1 objective + 5 fixed cards for the draw deck).
I guess I’ll wait and not pass judgment until I have the product in my hands and sit down to make decks. I’ve played many CCGs/LCGs over the years and half the fun for me is building a deck with the best 60 cards I can. On the other hand, I don’t have as much free time as I used too with a wife and three kids. I’m already having to make tweaks in many different decks every month for Warhammer : Invasion and Game of Thrones as the expansion packs come out so maybe a simplified deck building process would be okay. If the game play is great and there’s still enough variety I’m sure I’ll learn to live with it.
