Rivals has been announced and we sit down to talk all about draft and sealed Destiny. Drafting is not new to card games, but adding in dice and 6 packs for draft or 8 packs for sealed makes for some unique ways to play the game. We talk about each card spoiled by FFG and give out thoughts on what to draft when presented with different situations.

PAX unplugged is coming up very soon and we are giving away a EaW booster box at our second Happy Hour event, PLUS Todd has a new online store with a special discount for our listeners. Check him out at https://www.totalaccessgames.com/.

Anakin Skywalker? You’re fired.

Oct 23 2017 12:00 AM | KnightsofRenPodcast in Star Wars: Destiny

https://artificery.c...er-youre-fired/

Conflicted Apprentice? It’s no wonder he’s conflicted. Poor Anakin. He so wants to be the hero, like we all do. But when we’re left with this decision, I am in no way surprised that he gave in to the dark side. When it comes to competitive play, we all do in the end.

I covered the issues with The Rivals box and draft as an entity last time out. My whinging took over though, and I ran out of column inches to actually discuss the cards themselves. It’s probably a good job really because Anakin is more annoying in his neutral cardboard form than he is in his Hayden Christensen cardboard actor form.

But let’s not jump the blaster. He will have his time in due course.
