  1. First article in a while, I used eBala/eTalzin/FOST at last weekend's Lincoln Regional. Here's my report! https://tabletoptimesinks.com/2018/03/22/tournament-report-lincoln-regionals/
  2. Hi, so far at Tabletop Timesinks we've been focused on Star Wars Destiny, but we're moving into first impressions/reviews of board games as well (since we also play lots of them). This is the first of our articles in that regard, taking a look at the Fallout board game. Comments and criticisms are most welcome! https://tabletoptimesinks.com/2018/02/20/first-impressions-fallout/
  3. Last week I was demonstrating Star Wars Destiny to a local club. Here's my writeup! https://tabletoptimesinks.com/2018/02/05/demonstrating-destiny-to-other-gamers/
  4. Yes, I understand that Greedo's ability has nothing to do with activating him. I was using those parts of the rules reference to highlight what the game denotes as a character's dice: Characters, page 5 Rule Reference: "Each character has one or two dice that are rolled when that character is activated." A character has one or two dice.
  5. Funny idea, but it won't work like that. Characters, page 5 Rule Reference: "Each character has one or two dice that are rolled when that character is activated." Activate a Character or Support, page 14 Rules Reference: "All of the dice associated with a character (its character and upgrade dice) must be rolled when that character is activated." Unless you are trying to argue that whenever you activate any character you can just roll as many copies of their character dice that you wish, it doesn't work. As for the Set-Aside Zone, page 10 Rules Reference: "Players can set aside any number of dice that match cards in their deck, or are referenced by cards in their deck." I think that this part just means that you could have an entire deck full of cards that have corresponding dice, rather than your interpretation of using as many as you have in your collection. While I think that they could use some tighter wording, I don't reckon it works.
  6. We had our first local tournament using Legacies cards and there were some interesting teams on display. https://tabletoptimesinks.com/2018/01/18/tournament-report-locals-legacies-legal/
  7. @Alphastealer You bring up lots of good points! Having similar damage types definitely makes things smoother, but we have to be careful not to disregard options that might be good just because they have dissimilar damage types (don't get me wrong though, I agree with what you're saying). After writing this basic deckbuilding article, and reading the detailed comments that people have posted, I think that I could probably write an entire series of articles looking at the various minutiae involved. Mixed damage sides could definitely be one such article! Anyway, thanks for the reply.
  8. @Vitalis I presume you are talking about Obi-Wan Kenobi's Lightsaber? Yeah, it's quite sought-after, but you probably only need one copy per deck thanks to cards like Lightsaber Pull (unless you are consistently playing against mill though).
  9. @Amanal Yep, developing a deck is a whole process as well (which I will probably write an article on). Your method of deck development is pretty much what I do as well. As for HWK-290, I think it has a lot of potential. Definitely going to build a deck with Rose in and cards like that.
  10. With all the new Legacies cards bouncing around, I thought it would be a good idea to do a basic deckbuilding article. Have a read and see what you think. https://tabletoptimesinks.com/2018/01/14/building-your-own-deck-some-tips-tricks/
  11. Another deck that I've been getting favourable results with recently is Rieekan Rainbow Mill. Here's my writeup on it so far! https://tabletoptimesinks.com/2018/01/07/work-in-progress-rieekans-rainbow-mill/
  12. When you use the special, it does two damage wherever you like. You can then spend a resource to do an additional two damage wherever you like. You could even do it to the same character, for a total of four damage (but these are two separate hits, which matters for things like Force Illusion and Count Dooku's ability).
  13. Thanks to the preview wave of Legacies in Europe, I've been able to build a Battle Droid deck. In this article I give you my thoughts on them so far. Enjoy! https://tabletoptimesinks.com/2017/12/31/strength-in-numbers-a-battle-droid-story/
  14. I managed to get hold of one of each of the Boba and Luke starter decks. Here is the full breakdown of which cards and dice you get, enjoy!
  15. We've done another spoiler review at Tabletop Timesinks. Check it out and see if you agree or disagree with our evaluation of the cards! https://tabletoptimesinks.com/2017/12/12/legacies-spoiler-review-so-far-part-3/
