I'm just gonna throw this bone out and see where it goes.
It's now been over a month since I got Star Wars: The Card Game. The novelty of it has started to fade. While it's still a great game, I find that when I lay down to sleep at night, my thoughts turn toward the 2011 demo. I would love to try my hand at that game. I play LotR and from what I've read of the SW game, there were lots of differences between the two and LotR just doesn't satisfy my desire to play the cooperative SW game.
It is my sincere hope that FFG takes those mechanics and creates a new, stand-alone game, much in the same way they released the A Game of Thrones card game based on that LCG. I'd love to see three boxes that take you through the stories of the original trilogy as you and your friends take on the roles of the heroes, trying to overthrow the evil Galactic Empire.
The game we have is nice, and I'll definitely pick up the big box expansions, if not the Force packs, but my desire for the first version hasn't diminished.
