Passed the Gauntlet

It's a new year, and all the traveling and sundry commitments have cleared up.  As in, I should be making it to G2D4 this weekend.  Though, man, it's been at least since October that I played any 40K.   Wouldn't say I've been missing it terribly.  I did want to go to the tournament on the 22nd last month, but I came down with a stomach virus the morning of.

I have been getting in other games though.  I played in the X-Wing Kessel Run at the Game Preserve and won a pre-release Slave 1.  I went to a classic Star Wars CCG tournament in Champaign.  Went 2 and 2 there, and only in one of the losses did I get a major beat-down.  Pretty decent with new decks and only playing about 2 games in the last 10 years.  The guys who ran it have re-started up an IL/IN tournament circuit for the game.  I suggested G2D4 for the next one and we are having it there on the 19th.  Yesterday I broke down and bought a sealed box of the final expansion off Amazon.

My general Star Wars enthusiasm may be tapering down.  I've re-ran through all the good stuff.  Now all that's left is Keven J. Anderson, New Jedi Oder(plus everything that comes after) and prequels.  Ghack.  Oh, wait, this came out yesterday.   Ocean's 11 with Lando, Han, and Chewie?  Yes, please.

Edit: I noticed that I misspelled Order in the above paragraph.  Decided to stick with it as it justly describes my feelings for the general direction of the EU post Visions of the Future.


  1. You should try the new SW:LCG from FFG. Played several games so far and it is a lot of fun (not as fun as SW:CCG, but still good).

    I won't be able to make the SW:CCG thing on the 19th as that is going to be a terrain building day at my place for the Indy Open.

    However, it looks like another X-Wing event will be happening at the GP-Keystone on the 26th, which I will be running.

    I'm all about the Star Wars right now. I'd probably even pull out my SW mins and throw together a squad.

  2. Good for you guys. I wouldnt mind getting in a sw game with you guys.


    can you get those guys the info about the open?
