I Am One With The Fourth

Happy Star Wars Day! 

I like Star Wars (a lot). If I weren't watching Empire Strikes Back with my oldest (YESSSS!), I'd be playing a Star Wars game (which I might do anyway after the movie). I think I'd go with #Star Wars: Outer Rim first, followed by #Star Wars: Destiny. Of course, I'd play X-Wing in a heartbeat if I had someone to play with haha 

So! What is your favorite Star Wars game, and are you playing it today?

We are currently getting new carpet upstairs but once that’s done by Wednesday afternoon  then I’ll be starting a new Imperial Assault campaign! I had to pack up Gloomhaven to move all our furniture and I think I’ll leave it packed up for a while.

Always wanted to play Imperial Assault but eventually got Legion instead since most people around my area jumped to that.

Nice! I understand the not wanting to get it all back out and set it all back up. I have games like that as well. I'd probably play them more if I could just leave them setup, but our kids would destroy and devastate haha

Let me know when it arrives and I'll be over immediately haha

I think of all the Star Wars board games though, I would want to play #Star Wars: Outer Rim the most. I like the mechanics and the wacky-ness that can happen in it.

It's so good. I'd love for a 5-6 player expansion with more player-versus-player combat :) 

Supporter8 months ago

I’d love any kind of expansion for it. 

8 months ago

This is true. I'd love a Mandalorian themed expansion, or a Mid Rim expansion (since Naboo is technically in the Mid Rim anyway...).

At 4-player, is there a lot of room to avoid conflict?

8 months ago

There really isn’t much personal conflict against players normally. But things do get more crowded which is fun. I’d just like more battles and fights between players, which is currently only possible with a few abilities and jobs and whatnot. 

8 months ago

Ya, the game itself does not seem to me like a game that needs player conflict THAT much, but it would not hurt!

8 months ago

That's true; I guess it doesn't need it. But I would like to engage in "aggressive negotiations" with other players if they get too high in reputation haha

Ah yes, gotta put people in their place lol.

I have not played a single Star Wars board game, but like @theDL I have played video games. I will go with the original Star Wars Battlefront 2, not the new one...

I am also planning on getting Star Wars Fallen Order here soon. 

Supporter8 months ago

I’m very interested in Fallen Order. Someday I’ll pick it up!

I actually just bought it yesterday! It was on sale on the PS4 for the May 4th!

I love those Battlefront games. I haven't played any of the new Battlefronts, but I have read the books associated with them haha

I have thought about getting into reading some star wars book, just never got around to it. I am still catching up on the classics that I neglected for years like Dune and LOTR. 

8 months ago

I highly recommend the classics. But if you do start reading Star Wars novels, I love the Thrawn trilogy by Timothy Zahn. There's an old trilogy by him and a newer "official canon" version. Both are great. And the Battlefront books are excellent war stories that happen to be set in the Star Wars universe. I was quite impressed with them.

That is awesome! Thank you for the rec!

Supporter8 months ago

There are TONS of good Star Wars books. All the new cannon ones are great but I’d particularly recommend Ahsoka, the new Thrawn trilogy, and Master and Apprentice. 

8 months ago

Does Ahsoka follow a similar story line to The Clone Wars?

8 months ago

Those are all good choices! The only one in the new canon I didn't really care for was the one from Luke's POV. It was OK, but not terribly wonderful. I've read (or listened to) most of the others.

8 months ago

FWIW the new Battlefront 2 is actually pretty fun. Since they pulled back all of their pay to win crap, they've put together a pretty good game. This is coming from someone got tired of the first new one real quick.

Fallen Order is pretty cool.

8 months ago

I dont play a ton of online stuff, thats the main issue I have, which is why Fallen Order is my game of choice.

I'm more and more that way too. But TBH it's fairly rare that I play ANY video game in the last year or so. Although during quarantine I have been playing The Show with a friend online to get our baseball fix, haha.
