The Force is Strong in This One
Star Wars: Epic Duels has very nice components and is really fun. It combines the best elements of a CCG and a small-unit tactics game, sacrificing only a little depth. We couldn't just play once, the four of us played this one all day long. Unfortunately, the owner of the game moved away soon after, and I haven't played since. It is a damn dirty shame that this excellent standalone game went out of print, to be replaced by another cynical, money-grabbing collectible miniatures game. I would rate this game a 6, except that I have to give it a -1 for having a Star Wars theme. I loved the first two movies, but everything since The Empire Strikes Back only inspires loathing.
