When Fantasy Flight Games previewed the Jawa bunch from their upcoming The Edge of Darkness deluxe expansion set for the Star Wars Living Card Game, I screamed Utinni so many times, I think I freaked my neighbors out.
The Edge of Darkness will satisfy those who want to play the yellow (Smugglers and Spies) and green (Scum and Villainy) factions of this cool game. Featuring a stellar “cast” of Jabba the Hutt, Bossk and Lando Calrissian, this looks like THE set of the year for me, since I really doubt FFG will be so focused on my favorite Dark Side bounty hunters, for a long time.
The Tatooine Crash objective itself looks like a solid capturing machine: the ability to mess with your opponent’s deck every turn is huge. Sure, capturing seems random enough, but I’ll take anything that is potentially disruptive in the long run. After all, it’s card gaming 101: disruption is the arguably the next best thing, after card draw.
And, I know I sound like a nutter but the artwork for Jawa Scavenger is simply, cool beans! Okay, I may have been less kind towards the standard of artwork in the earlier sets (I still stand by those assessments by the way), but things are looking better, aesthetically, so there.
I’m still hoping FFG keeps to the May 2013 release date for this set. I really, really want this, since yesterday.
