• Fantasy Flight Games to Publish Star Wars Card, RPG, and Miniature Games

      Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce that it has entered a comprehensive licensing partnership with Lucasfilm Ltd. for the worldwide rights to publish card, roleplaying, and miniatures games set in the popular Star Wars universe!

      "Being able to publish gaming products in the Star Wars universe is quite simply a hobby-game company's dream come true," said Christian T Petersen, CEO of Fantasy Flight Games. "I'm confident that both Star Wars fans as well as FFG's regular customers will be blown away by the game experiences we have planned for this legendary IP."


      "As a leader in hobby gaming, we're excited to be partnering with Fantasy Flight Games," said Howard Roffman, President of Lucas Licensing. "Fun and adventure are hallmarks of the Star Wars saga, and FFG perfectly captures this in their games."


      FFG's first two Star Wars game lines will be the X-Wing miniatures game and Star Wars: The Card Game, both scheduled to launch in early 2012.


      Just the beginning...





      X-Wing
      is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful Rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE fighters, pitted against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates exciting Star Wars space combat throughout its several included scenarios. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!





      Star Wars: The Card Game
      is a cooperative card game that puts 1-4 players in command of the Rebel strike force and mission team. Players will launch fleets of starships and direct some of the most famous heroes in the Star Wars galaxy as they confront the might of the Empire. By working together, players can fend off Imperial assaults and complete their mission, winning the game! With a wealth of characters, starships, missions, and enemies, Star Wars: The Card Game immerses players in gripping galactic conflict.


      Visit the X-Wing website or Star Wars: The Card Game website to learn more, and keep checking back. These two exciting titles are only the beginning, and Fantasty Flight be announcing additional Star Wars card, roleplaying, and miniatures games in the coming months!

        Seems like this came out of left field. Wasn't someone else about to come out with a new line of SW gaming miniatures not too long ago? Or am I mixing that up with another sci-fi franchise? Well, this is really odd timing anyway, but if the miniatures are good enough, I might be tempted.

      Weirdest part of this set: cards #66 and #67 have the same caption, with different images and card back wording.

      Finished reading Cross Current and Riptide by Paul Kemp. Read Riptide first, but the plot made more sense after a point in Cross Current. Not bad SW novels.

      These odd-colored borders just drive me nuts. All I want is a complete set; the color of the border doesn't matter to me.
