Has there been any news of if/when TFA games could come?

Specifically a version of Risk (my 8 yr old has never played Risk, thought this would be a good first) as well as some FFG stuff.

Just be forewarned. The 'Risk: Star Wars' that is slated to be released soon, is not a 'typical' version of Risk. It's a streamlined version of Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit with a Battle of Endor theme.

I picked up a copy. I love the crap out of Queen's Gambit, and don't own a copy of any Risk!

I suspect, though, that you're still going to have to use Risk's 3-on-2 dice combat resolution system.

Pete (thinks that alone will make it inferior to the Queen's Gambit game)

No it doesn't use the 3-2 dice combat.

Hey, if I get a hot chick to play a board game with me, she can throw the dice wherever she darn well pleases.

She's just mad because her boyfriend didn't wait for the Black Edition (with better minis and translucent dice).

Wow, really? If it borrows literally nothing from Risk... what's the point in the naming convention?

Odd choice...

So it won't raise the question "So, like, is this just like risk?"

The dice combat is "roll a number of dice equal to your fighters, destroy a number of targets that you meet their hit value". Max 5 dice.

Different ships have different hit values (x-wing/tiefighter=3, Y-wing=4, B=Wing, Falcon, Executor=5) and the Falcon and Executor can take multiple hits. The Falcon always rolls 2 dice to attack, and the Executor rolls 4.

The dice are also used for the two side tracks, but its just roll to hit a target number.

And literally, my guess is the naming is just for recognition. It plays nothing like Risk.

If it plays like my Queen's Gambit, it's more cool than good. But it's still pretty good.

Pete (sometimes feel like you just roll a few hundred dice and it comes down to a die-roll or two)

I think this is one of those things where they're basically calling it Risk for the marketing recognition. Kind of like how they put the name Magic the Gathering on their Heroscape remake.

I went and dug through my old micromachines star wars stuff to find an Executor and Falcon. Also found a black suit Luke and a Vader for that track, a Han for the rebel assault team, a bunch of stormtroopers (and unfortunately imp pilots cause I couldn't find 9 stormies) A Lando for the Falcon HP marker, and a Imp officer looking dude for the Executor damage marker.

I'll probably still buy a copy of the black edition when it comes out, but it looks nicer now .

Thanks, I was able to cancel my order through Amazon just in time of the regular edition.
