So c-c-c-c-old!

I've been waiting for this game for a while now. I suspected that FFG was working on something grandiose. They know people will buy this game so why not make it epic in size and in components. My only hope is that the game play will be engaging, interesting, streamlined and will bring me into the world of the Star Wars universe. As I tend to play games above the 2 player count my big hope is that the 3 and/or 4 player game will be satisfying and not just something that is tacked on.

What's your hope for the game?

My hope is that Corey K. will outdo himself. While I think he is talented, I am not a huge fan of most of his games and none have been a huge hit in my group. I find that his game tend to be fiddly, random and over-reliant on gimmicky ideas. So I hope this game will be the one to change my opinion about his designs!

Whilst I like the idea of a feasible 3-4 players, I strongly suspect a share the pieces type of 2v2 rather than true 3-4 players. Perhaps an expansion of Scum & Villainy 3rd faction with their own agenda, sometimes fighting and sometimes assisting either sides.

My main hope is that it is playable in 3 hours so that I can play this with the missus

This was my guess as well. I've never played a 2v2 game before so I have no reference for what kind of experience that would be. Interesting? Frustrating? Would it drag out the game to much?

Boba Fett appears for the Empire, that goes against a separate Scum and Villany faction.

Surely not difficult for an expansion to provide replacement 'neutral/Scum' Fett if they wanted to. Anyway, it is not required & would have to be carefully balanced if they ever did such a concept

Corey K. is my favorite designer, i pretty much like all of his designs and would i make a top 10 list of my favorite games, it would contain a lot of his games. You definitely will recognize Star Wars: Rebellion as one of his designs.
However one of the critique points of his designs is often that his combat systems are fiddly - this is not the case in Rebellion.

Aye, my only complaint about Corey's games are the few that have card combat systems I dislike. Otherwise I like the rest of his games.

Card combat is what makes his designs awesome. Dice combat games are a dime a dozen.

I guess we'll just agree to disagree. For me his record with card combat systems is hit and miss. Some I like and others I don't.

Hopefully this will be a great one! cool

That they'll use the legends "mythology" as the basis for expansions and add-ons in the future. Love to have a campaign with Grand Admiral Thrawn or a Dark Luke.

Or make Boba a shared character, possibly a little like Lando from the Decipher CCG. Maybe whoever pays Boba more resources gets to use him for the round! :-) There's tons o' fun you could have in the design of a Scum & Villainy faction expansion provided the original rules are simple enough to expand on. It could make for an awesome and unique 3-player experience.

Can't wait to see the rule book!

Bit too late for that with new canon and all. A dream.. But we'll more likely see Episode VII stuff in future

They've released stuff in the Legends line since the canon reboot.
