  1. Ares Games has it now; they're doing what FFG was crazy not to do when they had it - X-Wing but with Vipers and Raiders. The best bet therefore would be to petition them to purchase/license the design from FFG.
  2. The debatable need for short rotation was the least of what killed this game. The interminable delays between new product - remember when there was literally an entire year between one cycle and the next? - were several orders of magnitude more responsible. Speaking for the community that played at Team Covenant's store in Tulsa, with each such long gap between releases, the player base shrunk, and never recovered even when new product finally did release. Then Imperial Assault came out, the few holdouts still playing the LCG every week moved onto it (and later abandoned it for Destiny, but that's a bitter tale for another day), and that was all she wrote.
  3. What I think it probably is: X-Wing core set, Episode 8 edition What I want it to be: that rumored Star Wars reskin of the Warhammer Quest card game
  4. Regardless of how well the IA system would or wouldn't work, this statement is definitely false.
  5. I want 4-LOM to come as a companion to Zuckuss, BUT as a figure and an exception to the rules that spring from companions being tokens instead of figures. Basically they'd just be one group made of two different figures with their own stats and abilities instead of two copies of the same figure. (This is also how I feel R2 and 3PO should have been done.)
  6. I don't want to shock you too much, but it's quite common for a game of "X-Wing" to have not a single X-Wing on the table.
  7. Maybe they'll be like the ISBs, with an optional mission that slots into the mini-campaign. The relevant text block on their map sheet could say you get to add it to "[Title Redacted], the upcoming mini-campaign to be released after Jabba's Realm".
  8. So, no indication that Captain Terro/Dewback Rider includes two rider sculpts to differentiate the unique from the generic, like General Weiss? :-\
  9. Well now they HAVE TO make an expansion, even if it's nothing more than a Thrawn standee and action card in an LCG-monthly-pack-size clamshell.
  10. Certainly looks like a better match for the material than the existing Thrones board game (as good a game as that is in its own right, it just plain doesn't "feel like" ASOIF). I just hope the character powers aren't all recycled from CE aliens, and there are at least some changes to the rule system (from the preview article it looks like a verbatim reskin, as far as I can tell).
  11. And if FFG will not listen, then to hell with them!
  12. Oh come now, you saw Return of the Jedi, right? Clearly the items are delivered to the droid's owner by means of its standard-issue lightsaber launching tube. EDIT: hell, in the case of a grenade, I can easily picture it as never being in the owner's hands at all - the action to use it represents radioing the droid and saying "that grenade you found? I need it armed and launched at these troopers."
  13. I think the people predicting Jabba's palace based on the OT-based trajectory we've seen so far are right. I think the people predicting something set before ANH due to the "three dead guys" wave are... also right. Think about it - an expansion built around Jabba's palace would have to happen some time BEFORE RotJ, since after means Jabba's dead, the Rancor's dead, all his goons are dead or scattered to the winds. So since it has to be before RotJ, why not several years before?
  14. I made that exact argument, they looked it up, and this is what FFG wants. They showed me this article about how this isn't collusion. It's insanity. EDIT: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2016/4/15/intentional-draws/ There it is in black and white, agreeing to draw isn't collusion. The TO was like, I feel for you, this seems totally absurd to me too, but it's what FFG decided, my hands are tied.
