I remember not too long ago Star Wars Destiny was super popular and it was impossible to find packs anywhere. Now you can find a ton of these packs in the discount bins. It is crazy how quick trading card games can burn out. Anyways I still like the game a lot (even though I can’t remember that last time I played) so I bought a couple of Star Wars Destiny Convergence packs for real cheap.
I didn’t pull anything too exciting. I did pull a couple of cards that can form a start of a Dengar deck. Could be fun.
I watched Solo on Netflix the other day and I thought it was a lot of fun. I think the main reason it didn’t do well in theaters is because Disney has been releasing way too many Star Wars movies as of late. Anyways after watching Solo, I started getting into Star Wars Destiny again…
I love Star Wars Destiny. It is a fast paced card game with a great theme but I always seem to struggle to get in on the table. Card games just have a lot of commitment. There is a commitment to buy cards, to build decks, to learn the rules and to play any deck optimally. I try to bring to game night whenever I can but honestly I think I have almost as much fun just building a bunch of decks.
I have six packs of Star Wars Destiny Across the Galaxy. I hope to pull some of the characters from the movie. Perhaps Solo, Lando or Tobias Beckett.
It is always nice to pull two legendary cards from just six packs. When I first read Iden Versio ability it seemed really broken but I had to look in it up and it just prevent additional actions. The way it read it looked like your opponents can’t take any actions until she resolves her dice. It is still powerful I guess since the best decks in Star Wars Destiny are always chaining two or more actions together. I didn’t pull any of the main characters of Solo but I did pull two copies of Tobias Beckett’s Rifle.
Star Wars Destiny is a game I really enjoy playing but I am having a hard time finding people to play it with. Also I think if I played it competitively or in a tournament it wouldn’t be as fun. AND it cost a ton to play. Despite all that, the new set Star Wars Destiny Legacies has a lot of interesting characters, characters I want to collect. So I bought a couple of packs to see what I can pull before I buy any singles.
The most interesting pull is the only character I pulled, Wedge Antilles. Wedge seems like a fun card to build around especially since I have a lot of spare vehicle dice lying around. Also force throw and pirate speeder tank are legendary cards & dice but I don’t really have a deck in mind for either of them yet.
Overall not a bad couple of packs but unfortunately because the way the game is designed you can never have enough cards and dice you so have to keep buying more and more packs. Ugh.
This is a little update of the previous blog post. I finally found some Star Wars Destiny Spirit of the Rebellion Packs for sale and I picked up nine of them.
I pulled a Jyn Erso and a Mon Mothma. I have to go through the cards I have but these two cards seem to be a start of a deck. I am very happy with my pulls even if I didn’t pull a legendary card.
Happy Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you. Honestly I was hoping to open some packs of the newest Star Wars Destiny set, Spirit of the Rebellion for this special occasion but I couldn’t find any for sale. Instead I got the next best thing, the Rey & Finn starter deck!
Star Wars Destiny is probably my favorite tabletop game right now. It is actually one of the reason I don’t really collect and play Magic anymore and it is biggest reason I don’t play Dicemasters anymore. It has a great theme and it has the perfect combination of luck and strategy built into the framework of the game.
Despite that, this game has some flaws and it really doesn’t have anything to do with the game itself. A) – The collectible card game model makes this game very expensive to play especially if you are planning on playing in tournaments. B) – The game is sold out everywhere and distribution of the game is a bit iffy. C) – Starter decks don’t give you a complete deck since it has only 20 cards of the 30 cards you need. So for A you really can’t do anything about it. Fantasy Flight is supposed to have fixed B with a bigger print run but given that the new set was supposed to come out on May 4th and I haven’t seen packs in stores yet give me some cause for concern. Finally for C, Fantasy Flight should really just put any 10 cards to fill out the deck.
Anyways when the packs do come out I highly recommend that game. It is easy to learn and fast to play but it still gives you some interesting choices. I can’t wait to build my Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe deck!
