Star Wars y FFG se alían. Que la fuerza nos acompañe.

Esta noticia va dedicada a un amigo mio, gran seguidor de todo lo relacionado con StarWars y lector de este blog. Que mejor noticia para un fan de la saga de lucas y jugador empedernido de los juegos de FFG, que estos dos gigantes del entretenimiento unan sus fuerzas.  Pues si, esto a ocurrido, FFG y Lucas se unen y fruto de esa unión tenemos 2 juegos para empezar.
El primero, un  LCG cooperativo, creado por el autor de moda, Corey Koneczka, valido para jugar 1 solo jugador, y que podría tener inspiración del juego El Señor de los Anillos.
El segundo, un juego de miniaturas táctico llamado Xwing, que sabiendo que FFG ha dejado de distribuir Wings of War en USA, podría tratarse de un juego parecido y también inspirado en el clásico de miniaturas de la I Guerra Mundial. De momento poca información, pero seguid leyendo, que vienen las imágenes....

The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away forever.
    –Grand Moff Tarkin, Star Wars: A New Hope
The Rebel Alliance launches a bold gambit. After cracking a string of Imperial code, the Rebels learned the Galactic Empire's next strategic target. Now a select Rebel strike team races against time, undertaking a desperate mission to thwart the Empire while the Imperial fleet closes in on the lightly defended Rebel base…
Fantasy Flight Games is thrilled to announce that players can soon take control of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and other pivotal heroes in Star Wars: The Card Game. Set during the classic Star Wars trilogy, the game provides an immersive galaxy of characters, starships, missions, and enemies.
This cooperative Living Card Game pits players against Imperial forces as they work together to complete dangerous missions. A devious artificial intelligence system drives the Imperial strategy. Star Destroyers, stormtroopers, bounty hunters, and the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader, launch attack after vicious attack as they close in on the Rebel base.
As the Empire's military presence increases, time begins to run out for the Rebel strike team. Each mission stage the Rebel strike team fails to complete makes it increasingly difficult for them to succeed at their overall objective before the Imperial armada destroys their base.
Building the Rebel Alliance
Designed for 1-4 players*, Star Wars: The Card Game allows players to explore a tremendous range of deck-building options as they draw upon the individual strengths of four Rebel strategies.
  • The Military strategy excels at space and ground combat, using hit and run tactics and the Rebellion's strongest starships to engage their enemies.
  • The Rogue strategy uses more discreet methods, such as smuggling and sabotage to confound the Empire.
  • The Tech strategy focuses on repairs and upgrades, employing high-powered weaponry, droids, and cutting edge technology.
  • The Operations strategy draws from the full strength of the Rebel Alliance, using diplomacy, politics, secret channels of communication, and espionage to advance their objectives.
Players can design decks for solo play or collaborate with friends to forge a stronger Rebel Alliance.
As a Living Card Game, Star Wars: The Card Game breaks away from the traditional Collectible Card Game purchase model. Players never have to worry about blind buys, and the game grows with the release of Force Packs, which introduce new missions, characters, starships, enemies, events, and attachments to the game. The galaxy continues to expand, and the Living Card Game model allows players to continue to customize decks as the card pool increases.
We will continue to post updates on this website. In the meantime, you can visit our description page to learn more.
May the Force be with you!

Respected throughout the galaxy as perhaps the finest single-pilot starfighter ever produced, the X-wing’s superior capabilities are widely credited with the Rebel victory at the Battle of Yavin. With its arsenal of Taim & Bak KX9 laser cannons and Krupx MG7 Proton Torpedo Launchers, plus its full array of deflector shields and an astromech socket for in-flight repairs, the X-wing is among the Rebel Alliance’s most powerful weapons.
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of X-Wing, a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE Fighters (with more starfighters to choose from in future releases), pitted against each other in fast-paced space battles! Featuring beautifully detailed painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates the excitement of Star Wars' incredible space battles throughout its several included scenarios...or gives you the tools to imagine your own. But whatever your mission, you’ll need all your skill and cunning to claim victory.
Assemble your squadron leaders
X-Wing delivers rapid gameplay that puts you in the middle ofStar Wars‘ fiercest firefights. Each ship type has its own unique piloting dial, which is used to secretly select a speed and maneuver each turn. After planning maneuvers, each ship's dial is revealed and executed (starting with the lowest skilled pilot). So whether you rush headlong toward your enemy showering his forward deflectors in laser fire, or dance away from him as you attempt to acquire a targeting lock, you’ll be in total control throughout all the tense dogfighting action.
Want to customize your ship and crew? X-Wing’s advanced rules let you spend setup points to allot resources to your ships, so whether you enter the fray with a seasoned ace, an anxious rookie, or even Luke Skywalker himself, you’ll face a range of compelling options before you even fire up your engines. Choose your pilot, fighter specifications, and (in the case of the X-wing) Astromech droid, all of which has a direct and significant impact on your strategy.
With its easy-to-learn rules system, beautifully detailed components, and range of gameplay options, X-Wingimmerses players in the tense cinematic excitement of Star Wars’ space battles. And with multiple sets, you can even combine your forces to create your own epic engagements. Learn more at our X-Wing website, keep checking back for previews, and look for X-Wing to hyperspace jump onto store shelves in the first quarter of 2012!
