Re: Star Wars - The Clone Wars

I am pretty disappointed with the first 8 episodes too. They weren’t bad, but they definitely felt like filler and each of those arcs could have been 3 episodes. Episode 9 was the quality I was expecting for the entire season based on the advertising push. My biggest disappointment is that they didn...

Follow up.

Anyone using this opportunity for self improvement? Reading books, working out etc...?
I took 5 hours yesterday to get a bunch of stuff listed on eBay that I’ve been wanting to sell for a while. Being home for an extended time period makes it a lot easier to pack and ship it.

All the x-wing novels, but especially the ones written by Aaron Allston.

Re: Opinions on the new preview cards?

Why does this character gametext have to go on Thrawn? Now his text is less strong so it's even worse to have to play this Thrawn over the other 2. Can we blank Theron Nett v and instead make a new version of Ackbar that protects against weapons at the same time? It stinks that DS has to give up Th...

Re: Opinions on the new preview cards?

I'm curious why D&D felt the need to restrict this to Thrawn's persona when the LS counterpart is on a random rebel schmuck. LS doesn't have to give up one of it's best characters in order to have weapons protection in space, why should DS?

Re: World's 2020

I don't travel to events anymore, so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but I am a teacher and when I was traveling October was much better for me than August. In Texas school starts in August, so it was always worse to miss a Friday and/or Monday right at the beginning of the school year than to...

Re: Cards yet to be broken

Classic example dating back to the Decipher days is Sith Probe Droid. "When deployed, immediately retrieve 1 Force" It always felt like there would be some way to cycle that forever. same. It's gotta involve Wuher and/or Magnetic Suction Tube somehow. Yeah I guess if Wuher is at the Cantina they wo...

Re: Texas mini worlds?

Our local player base has diminished and TXMW only got 16 people 2 years in a row (with less than half of those being Texans). There's only so much space on the calendar for major events so it seems like other regions that can draw more people for a major should (like Endor) should take the TXMW spo...

Re: Texas mini worlds?

I still play on gemp occasionally, but it's just hard to find the time anymore. In Houston we used to play locally once a week, then it drifted to 1-2 times per month, then every couple of months. When it got to the point where we'd only gotten together to play cards twice in 6 months I decided it w...

Re: Star Wars Toy Thread

I *might* have ended up with two of the SDCC Thrawn? I'll have to check. I know a friend got me one as a gift but I don't recall if I made it down to buy my own before that or not. Did this happen? Do you have more than 1? If possible I'd love to grab one if we could work out something let me know....

Sounds like it's time for another top 10 or top 5 countdown with patented Hunter commentary. My favorite post on the boards ever is your explanation of why Obi JK v was the least thematic character possible to pull disarmed.

General Cracken and Nightfall

http://tlbiesterfeld.servegame.com/gemp ... i8nz6dlvlo

On turn 8 DS battles General Airen Cracken while Nightfall is on the related system. Cracken should prevent DS from adding a destiny to power, but DS was able to draw a destiny to power (and battle destiny too).
