    Episode 2 CCG cards

    I thought they stopped making Star Wars CCG cards. At my local WalMart I saw a box on a pallet marked Star Wars Episode 2 Booster packs. What gives?

    Hasbro has taken over the Star Wars CCG license, and they will be the one producing the new card game. Hasbro has been buying up just about every company or contract that has anything at all to do with Star Wars. They purchased Micro Machines, WOTC (who makes the RPG, and now owns the fan Club), and several other smaller companies. I think Hasbro is trying to be the end all monopoly of the Star Wars brand. Lucasfilm decided not to renew their contract with Decipher, and WOTC snatched up the CCG rights.

    I found some at Kmart today, $1.49 for a pack of 5. I'm not a gamer, but I wanted a few just to see what kind of spoiler pics I could be surprised by. I'm heading over to Episode II Spoilers to post a few . . .

    Yep, 5 - how many did Decipher offer in a booster pack? I know there is supposed to be a starter set out there, but all I found were the boosters.

    If it's of any interest, it looks like this set contains 180 cards.

    I saw the starters at Wal-Mart......But can't remember how many cards they contained.....

    Decipher (The better SW CCG licensee) had 15 cards per pack....in most cases.....some did have 11, I think, but all packs contained MORE THAN TEN CARDS......

    damn, I hate WOTC

    I wonder how many Star Wars forums all across the internet have threads where everybody is pretty much saying : "Decipher ruled. WOTC blows."

    Probably all of them.

    And who plays a CCG game with dice? Honestly...

    It's pretty simple......

    Hasbro (WOTC's parent company) wants to be the owner of all games...

    wanna say that Jumprope rhyme?, you gotta pay WOTC, and you gotta say it WOTC's way!

    wanna play hopscotch?, not unless you have a d20

    and don't even think of winning in "Type 1" Red Rover, unless you have the expensive players..........
