Some time ago JediGeekGirl and I spoke about writing some articles for the website and I felt it was something I would like to try and do. In my mind, these were going to be about Star Wars: Destiny in some ways and then a few things happened before I could take time from my life to sit down and write. The focus of the site shifted to a wider paradigm and the game was canceled in terms of production, so I wasn’t really sure about what to write about that would interest people.
In middle school, I sort of played Decipher's Star Wars Collectible Card Game. I say "sort of" because my primary opponents were my brother (who is two years older than me and much, much smarter) and one other kid at my school. My brother and I had Light Side and Dark Side starter decks along with a small handful of expansions.
I wanted to explore some different areas of design space for this game so I thought a fun way to do so would be to design myself as a playable character. The idea behind these cards, thematically, is that I have no superpowers and weak stats.
A Star Wars: Destiny Grand Championship was held Jan. 24-26, 2020 at the Las Vegas Open. Nick Nelson (aka The Gandork) shared a file with the decklists for everyone who played in the event. Following the approach we took with other major events over the past several months, this article will just focus on the decks for players who made the Top 16 at LVO in order to compare similar amounts of data.

On November 22, 1963, the United States changed forever when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. This event screwed up the news that day and really took everybody's mind off of ordinary television. So when a television show about a grumpy alien, his granddaughter, and their phone booth spaceship aired for the first time, not a ton of people paid attention. It seemed as if Doctor Who might die before it really got a chance to take off. After all, how could a show this eclectic actually attract an audience?
On the 20th of December, FFG gave to me: three packs-of-champions, two villain-scenarios and a week-and-a-half to play it all. I really lucked out this year. I have a subscription through Team Covenant for all the Marvel Champions product types and I received Captain America, Ms. Marvel, and the Green Goblin expansions on Saturday, December 21st. I was off work from December 23rd until January 2nd. I spent a week of that time in St. Augustine, Florida, at my in-laws home where it's generally a pretty laid-back, lazy time. As of the time of this writing, I have played quite a bit of Champions.
