    Is the 4 player game really 4 players?

    Interesting, and is it easy to coordinate on the Rebel side? Asking this since you have a bit more of information to hide because of the Hidden Rebel Base right? Are you using codewords or something like that?

    Second game + question

    Excellent! Thank you for the quick answer. ?
  3. I must say, this game is truly good. I've managed to get 2 games in, after I've painted every single mini to create an even richer experience! I played the Imperial in the first game. I lost, just because I didn't know how to properly handle keeping the Rebels in one place. Early in the game, I had managed to capture one of the Rebel Leaders and I played the Homing Beacon card that revealed the Rebel base in a certain region. But ofcourse, he immediately afterwards moved his base (my mistake, in hindsight I should have hold on to the card longer). In the second game, I played the Rebels. The experience was totally different (in a good way). I called the chair I was sitting on the "Sweat Chair", just because of these vast Imperial armies combing through the galaxy and hoping he wouldn't go to the direction of the system my rebel base was in. I ended up winning, but really merely. He was 1 system away with an army + Deathstar (after having figured out where I most likely was) when the timer ran out. One question though: My Imperial opponent made a map of the galaxy where he would secretly mark the information from the probe cards on it to give him a better overview. I know when I played as an Imperial, I just stuck to the stack of probe cards that were given (I just put them together per region for easier overview). Would you consider having a map to give an unfair advantage as an Imperial player, or not because basically you're not getting more information, just a better overview?

    Please FFG give us an expansion

    Or a battlemat of the galaxy, allowing more room for placing fleets and troops...

    FF Please stop ignoring Descent... :(

    I certainly wouldn't buy a 3rd edition, 2nd edition was expensive enough to acquire. It had to end sometimes, but they could have done it with everything being "completed": - Same amount of classes - Hybrid classes - All first edition heroes released in 2nd - ... Now it feels uncompleted, a slap in the face of every fan that wanted a completed collection.
  6. I bought it recently, really looking forward to playing it. I insist on having everything painted though before my first game, just to maximise the experience (and to hook people!). The most tedious minis to paint are all the stormtroopers (just because they are white, annoying to paint on).

    Descent speculation

    It even makes me wonder if you can use the heroes from Warhammer Quest into this, since everything seems identical otherwise.

    Descent speculation

    So basically Warhammer Quest: the card game revived. Not bad and a logical choice.

    Will we see a third edition soon?

    I hear you, and I'm still in the process of painting everything, no way I'm going to immediately jump into a new edition. In fact, if I knew how much it would have ended up costing, I'd probably not have bought into it. I'm very careful now with FFG's products (in general). Big box expansions are fine, but I hate those micro transactions payments (H&M packs and lieutenant packs). I know myself to be a completionist, so that's a dangerous combination. I'll most likely not buy into a 3rd edition, assuming that the same marketing techniques are being applied. The moment that those small overpriced packages are starting to appear, that's a red flag for me.

    Small nitpick about the dice

    Good to know, it doesn't state that in the description though of the product. "The Genesys Roleplaying Dice Pack features three Ability dice, three Difficulty dice, two Setback dice, two Boost dice, two Proficiency dice and a Challenge die, giving you everything you need to run your own game of Genesys." Thank you for clearing that up.

    Small nitpick about the dice

    So the dice of both Star Wars and Genesys are exactly the same, yet in the Star Wars dice packs, there is one "force die" more than in the Genesys packs, yet the prices are the same? https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/star-wars-roleplaying-accessories/products/star-wars-roleplaying-dice-1/ https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/genesys/products/genesys-dice-pack/ Would it have been so hard to lower the value of the packs by $1 or something? I find the packs on their own already expensive, and usually people buy several of them. This seems like yet another implicit price increase to me.

    The Future of 2nd Edition

    Look into Dungeon Saga with the Adventurer's Companion expansion. Technically it's possible to port your descent miniatures to that as well, since you can make your own characters. That said, DS is a lighter version of Descent and comes with its own problems. Still, it's the closest I got to that "Hero Quest" feeling.
  13. Is that true? Where does it state that the Overlord is Waiqar affiliated? I know the last few expansions had a lot of undead... but at the same time the Overlord monsters also include a lot of non undead? I'm just asking because I'm interested in the lore behind it.

    The Future of 2nd Edition

    I really love the undead theme and the Tainted blood mechanic + hybrid classes.
