It is the second of Fantasy Flight Games co-operative LCGs, following on from Lord of the Rings. You can see the design DNA if you have played both and indeed similarities with how Marvel Champions, their third co-op LCG plays.
At the FFG World Championships in 2016, Fantasy Flight Games launched a new CCG, their first in almost a decade, Star Wars: Destiny. A two-player game spanning all eras of the Star Wars storyline, which let players pit Rey and Qui-Gon Jinn, against Jango Fett and Kylo Ren, if they wanted by playing characters, ships. weapons, and mysterious force abilities, fighting across the battlefields of the galaxy.
Like a lot of people who read these columns and follow the I Rebel podcast, I was a little sad when the news confirmed that Star Wars: Destiny was officially canceled, but not that surprised. Production delays coupled with the challenges of making the dice and packaging them together all combined to make it an easy decision for those in the organization that make those calls. So right now, we are not going to lament on that this time but talk more about which characters we might have seen (and in fact may yet see in Wild Horizons).
When I agreed to write articles for I Rebel I had a plan of how I was going to do them, when and what they were going to be about. Then lots of things happened and they keep happening. This piece for example for supposed to be about the logistics of organising an event, large or small. Since that is not something we have the luxury of being able to do right now it is going to be a little different. Part Destiny observations, part personal thought and part social commentary.
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.
