  1. I'm afraid I can already guess the answer. And with a new LCG line coming on, I'm also afraid they might decide to remove an older one from their catalog. (Note: I'm not an "it's all ending" kind of guy. But this and Imperial Assault are my two games and neither of them gets much notice any more.)
  2. I still plan in playing. I don't understand the thinking of abandoning games that don't constantly have new content.
  3. Definitely. I'm a design researcher at a major software company and most of the time we won't talk with customers unless there's an NDA in place. There have been a couple of times when individuals violated the NDA and the legal and professional consequences to them were severe. I'd also point out that the BGG post is from over 10 years ago, and FFG was in a different place in the market then. Plus, you'd have to consider Asmodee's response, which I would expect to be more...consequential...than the response on the BGG post.
  4. They do? I can't find it anywhere on the page, on in the pictures. If so, that's strange because the character has been Eleanor since Middle Earth Quest. (And my daughter will be disappointed, because that's her name!)
  5. I keep seeing Elena used in this thread, but her name is Eleanor!
  6. Ha! I love this. But, I was just reading this section in Unfinished Tales, and he finds it hidden inside Orthanc, along with some other relics of Isildur's that Saruman had stolen, after he becomes king. Which would still lead to the same result, I suppose. But this does make me wonder what other time-travel or logicially inconsistent scenarios we can create!
  7. I'm curious about how much of Rebels you've seen. The storylines and interpersonal relatio ships were pretty deep for a "kid's show". It did a fine job of keeping to the feel of the original triology. (And, I think that Kanan is my favorite Jedi, after Obi-Wan.) I do think there won't be any more Rebels releases after this (although, if they could squeeze in Ruhk and Kallus, I won't complain), but my son and I have been hoping for a Rebels box for a while! I'm pumped about this one.
  8. That marker doesn't mean anything other than that Disney wants to make money off of the product being sold!
  9. Can't tell if serious, or TFA reference...
  10. Shoutout for 17th shard! Now I'm curious to know how many Sanderson fans are here.
  11. I had a Windows Phone for years, and just recently got an Android phone specifically so I could use this app. I am so happy right now!
  12. I never knew the Boffins were Hobbit/giraffe hybrids.
  13. The article said they are developing exclusively for Steam, so my guess I'd that these will be digital counterparts to the existing titles and have nothing to do with the apps.
  14. What do you think about this? It sounds cool, but I feel like this could take a bite out of IA.
  15. I completely agree with this, and really hope that there's more to winning or losing the scenario (and campaign!) than what Caleb wrote. Much of the time, I've felt the designers' have translated Tolkien's vision and theme in some clever, insightful ways. This news left me feeling disappointed. It reminds me very much of the end of DM of the Rings, where the author pokes fun of the idea of an entire campaign simply won or lost on a single roll.
  16. I also wonder how many others there are like me: I wanted to try out Destiny, but the lack of availability led me to try out the SW LCG instead. I love it, and I've already purchased about 1/3 of the packs. (I otherwise would probably have put that money towards Destiny.)
  17. Well, I'd planned on picking up the starter sets from CSI today, but from the time I got the mail to when I could get online they've already sold out. Guess if I do want to try it out I'll wait for the Spirit of Rebellion starter.
  18. I'm a long time LOTR LCG player, and I'm just starting to get into the SW LCG. Destiny looks interesting, but I have no interest in going all in, chasing rates and so on. Is Destiny a good (fun) game with just the two starter packs and a few boosters now and then? I would only be playing with my wife and/or kids.
  19. I think that if they handle it well and make Light and Dark essentially Yin and Yang, then it can work. That would require removing evil elements from the Dark side, though, and that's so ingrained into what the light and dark sides of the force (canonically) mean I wonder how that would go over. It looks like Kanan is going down that path, though. But if they spin it as the Sith (or other dark-side force users) have such a bad misunderstanding of what the dark side really means, then maybe it can work.
  20. I totally, completely agree with this. I recently saw a video that suggests this middle-way, Zen-like balance of light and dark may have been the direction Lucas was planning all along. (There is apparently a poem from as early as the Journal of the Whills that evokes imagery of the fall of the Jedi and then elimination of the Sith that then leads to a philosophy of balance. Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about things ultimately moving in that direction, if true. After all, I still like to think of Jedi as light-side heroes, even if they had some major flaws in the era of the Republic.
  21. Try being ab LOTR LCG fan around this time last year. We didn't get any updates for three months!
  22. I'm not interested in much I see of Jabba's Realm. (Outrageous, I know!) The main execption to this is the Nemesis class deck. Is there any way to acquire this without buying the full box set? The answer is probably "no" but I figure it can't hurt to check.
