The FFG Press Announcement:

…Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Star WarsTM: Destiny, a collectible dice and card game of battles between iconic heroes and villains that will encompass characters, locations, and themes from the entire Star Wars saga.

In Star Wars: Destiny, two players engage in a fast-paced duel, each striving to eliminate the other’s characters first. The game’s innovative mechanics combine dice-driven combat with faction-driven hand management. Straightforward rules make the game easy to learn, but also enable deep strategic thinking and clever deckbuilding. Players will be able to create decks that include characters from every faction and any era, as long as heroes and villains are on opposite sides of the fight. For example, Padmé Amidala might fight alongside Rey and Finn, taking on Jabba the Hutt, Kylo Ren, and Jango Fett.

Star Wars: Destiny will launch with two starter sets featuring Rey and Kylo Ren from The Force AwakensTM, and a range of Awakenings booster packs. Each starter set will contain nine premium dice and twenty-four cards; each booster will contain five cards and one die. This collectible format will allow players to enter the game at their own pace, expand when they’re ready, and experience new discoveries with every booster pack. Star Wars: Destiny will exist side-by-side with Fantasy Flight’s Living Card Games®, which have been extremely successful and which will continue to be supported and developed.

    This is going to be a big game for sure. Already stores are over subscribed for the prereleases and the game design is fantastic, once you get over the garish colored dice. The dice themselves are sealed surfaces, not cheap decals on the top, so that game me some comfort. I’ve played 3 games so far with just the starter decks but I can’t wait for the boosters to make their way into the wild.

    Clever mechanics, really flavorful cards (General Grievous takes an upgrade from an opposing character once they die) and fast paced turns make for a game with depth and also mass appeal. Even the MTG players were begrudgingly playing (I even heard one of the squeek when he resolved a big attack)!

      Star Wars Destiny does look like a fun game; with enough crunch to keep it interesting. The “How To Play” video is top notch; clear and concise and really well presented.
