Star Wars Wednesday - Gen Con 2016

Last week brought another successful Gen Con, with around 60,000 gamers packing the convention center and surrounding hotels in downtown Indianapolis. The dealer hall expanded yet again, and the show extended all the way into Lucas Oil Stadium. Despite some early concerns, I got through without straining an Achilles tendon, though I did cut down on the walking some. Fantasy Flight Games that several major Star Wars boardgame and card game announcements. My product Age of Rebellion Forged in Battle was released at the show, and should be available in stores soon if not already.

Star Wars Wednesday - Games and More Games

Good news for my non-baseball and/or non-Royals loving twitter followers: my feed should be a dominated by a lot less baseball for awhile. It's been a great postseason and an exhausting few days between the end of the series and yesterday's epic victory parade, for which I had a front row seat. Fortunately, there has been a sudden surge of Star Wars tabletop games news the past few days. First up is the just-announced Star Wars Force and Destiny Nexus of Power sourcebook, of which I'm one of the writers.

Star Wars Wednesday - TIEd Up

It's Wendesday, isn't it?  Sorry, too many deadlines for the moment, but here's a great Star Wars TIE Fighter short movie in an '80s anime style that appeared this week. A shorter version was released quite awhile back. There are perhaps a few too many x-ray eyeball shots, but it's very well done, and fans of the TIE Fighter PC game should recognize quite a few things from the game.

Star Wars Wednesday - Ups and Downs

This week reflects a lot of Star Wars news of late: information on new movies - yay! More Lucasfilm layoffs - boo! I'm so busy, it's hard to keep up! Ugh! OK, that last one is just me, with a work trip and the usual other stuff taking up time this particular week. Other stuff like retyping this post after it went poof after...never mind. OK, probably not just me. So, on with the Star Wars ups and downs.
