    Well Jedi Guardians has been out for a few weeks now, so i think its time we set up for the next Expansion. ;) :D

    As well as the New card type, 'Location', There is also going to be New abilities, as well as the First Fan made Card! :D

    Thats right, Mara Jade Skywalker debuts in this set! :D [face_love]

    So let this be the place to talk about the set, and grab a bite of pizza, or just to chat ;) :D

    I'll have some pizza!

    Actuallly in this set I do not think she will be a Skywalker, but I could be wrong.

    Your right, but later if they make some Post RotJ EU cards she will be a Skywalker, and it may be pretty funny watching them explain that they are the same person :p

    Im actually wondering what new abilities they will have, we know the card, what abilities? :D

    I think her card is awesome even without abilities. I bet she'll have Deflect and Evade, possibly even the ability to attack the build zone, considering she was a covert agent. I think it would be cool if she could make your opponent reveal one of their build cards each turn.

    She's probably going to be a full star rare. If not for her abilities, just the fact that everyone will want one. Thank goodness WotC doesn't do like Decipher and have extremely rares. I also have a nice bunch of rares from JG and BOY to trade if need be.

    I still don't like her pic. *chugs some Corellian Yoo-Hoo*

    I don't think the pic is bad at all. She is *evil* (or even "Ev-eel") after all and has to look the part.

    Even when she is Luke's wife, she is a tough warrior woman that could make most men cry if they piss her off and she just looks at them a certain way. She was never one for looking like she just came from a Miss Galaxy FFA contest.

    Anyone start any coffee? I was up late last night watching AotC as many times as possible back to back before passing out from exhaustion.

    I'm hoping they don't add any new abilities to this set. They are starting to have too many and it is making the game too complicated. If they do add one, I just want it to be one. Anyone else agree with me?

    more abilitie=more options

    I like new ones because it keeps it interesting.

    It also keeps the game fresh, when a new set comes out you have to rebuild decks to keep ahead of the new abilities, or untilise them :p

    Even though my LS deck hasnt been upgraded since ANH came out :p ;) :D

    I agree. I don't think it's too complicated because for the first two or so sets they actually print what the ability does on the card. It adds a bit of strategy and I feel it takes if from that original kiddie game level to a more serious level, like SWCCG. Now you have to think about what your opponent can do, like Intercept, or have to worry about attacking someone because of Retaliation and create a balance, worry about things like Bombard and Ion Cannons. I like new abilities and hope they continue to add them.

    True, but i hope there isnt a time that there are too many abilities, so when an opponant plays one, someone wont go, huh, whats that.

    Yeah, I agree with you there Jedi, erm, I mean Darth Benji [face_plain] If it gets to the point where the game goes like
    'I intercept'
    "Well I retaliate"
    'Well I evade'
    "Well I have trample so you can't evade"
    'It doesn't matter anyway because he's flying'
    "But my Massassi Hangar nullifies all flying"
    'Well my Jedi Rune disables your Massassi Hangar'

    12 minutes later...

    "Ok, now that that turn is over, roll for build"
    'My Han's Left Arm says we have to roll for build outside under the noon sun'

    That would start to get a little annoying :p

    I too can't wait, my DS deck needs some AT-ATs as my ground force is lacking.
