Star Wars: Legion Review

I am too tired to go and learn a bunch of complicated miniatures rules. But a chance togame is a chance to game, so it looks like I'm going to have to go and learn Star Wars: Legion either way.

I have no intention of burdening my shelf with this game, because as good as it seems I know it would not get played. But it does sound like a definite improvement over Imperial Assault from a tactical standpoint. I always wanted Imperial Assault to embrace the more narrative elements of the game more fully, and it never really did.

I sometimes wonder how much FFG plans out the long-term expansion strategy for these games, because they seem to become bloated in just a couple of waves. Am I imagining that other serialized properties are able to pace expansion a little better?

Maybe. It's not just about pace, though, but about overhead. Other properties certainly seem to be better at diversifying by leveraging existing rules and effects, whereas FFG's default position seems to be to add more. Either way - pace or overhead - it's likely this is ultimately about milking a cash cow as fast and hard as possible. After all, it's worked for them so far.

But I think I like Legion best of all the Star Wars miniatures games they've put out so far. So I'm hoping, against hope, they've learned their lesson this time.

Which one is Star Wars Legion? Is this the one with the ships, the one with the miniatures, the one with the cards, the one with the dice, the one with the cards and the dice, or the one with the ships the cards and the dice?
