Star Wars Destiny is a collectible dice and card game that lets you control the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe. Step into your favorite galaxy and play as your favorite characters as you battle against teams of rivals in this awesome game!
Star Wars Destiny is made by Fantasy Flight Games, who’s library of Star Wars games include some hugely popular entries already, including Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures, Star Wars Armada, and Star Wars Imperial Assault. And if you’re thinking that with all of those games there isn’t room for (or a need for) another game – guess again!
Star Wars Destiny is different from the other games for a couple of big reasons. First, the concept of the game is very different from the other games, with the ability to put together a team of characters from the Star Wars universe to see how they would work in a skirmish. Second, Destiny incorporates a mechanic of dice in combination with the cards for a great mix of customizing your deck and then augmenting it more with additional dice.
Card types are: characters, events, upgrades and vehicles, and battlefields. As you might expect, there are two clear sides in this battle – with the Sith and the Imperials on one side and the Jedi and Rebellion on the other. So while you won’t be putting together a team with both Kylo Ren and Rey, there is a little bit of crossover with some cards, as they can work for either side.
Getting started with Star Wars Destiny is easy – you choose your side and purchase your Starter Set – there is one for Kylo Ren and another for Rey. After that, you can expand your options with Booster Packs.
The Booster Packs, as well as the individual cards from both Starter Sets are identified as all belonging to the “Awakenings” set and focus on the characters, events and settings of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. There is no announcements yet as to which set may be coming next.
