Photo Friday: Han’s Luck

With the announcement by Restoration Games that they are remaking Star Wars: Epic Duels, the classic Hasbro skirmish game, I thought I’d break out that old standby and reminisce a little.

Unmatched will update the rules and game play but also feature more eclectic character sources like Sinbad or Robin Hood. Licensed characters are due to follow as well with some interesting choices like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bruce Lee. Make no mistake that I’ll be all over this at the release at Gen Con this year.

However, the current game I’m testing has a unique “Disclosure Agreement” instead where the publisher is encouraging the testers to discuss their experiences openly.
