    The Smuggler's Gambit audio drama, originally performed live at CVI this August, has now been released online. It's 34:30 long, fully voice acted, and definitely worth a listen.

    Though I was at CVI, I missed this panel, so I'm very happy they put this up.

    It was decent. Liked it way better than I did Fanboys, so that's something. Also reinforced my wish that Lucasfilm would do Big Finish-style audio dramas.

    So is this supposed to be canonical?

    Smuggler's Gambit II announced: http://www.starwarsunderworld.com/2013/08/smugglers-gambit-ii-announced.html

    Creator Kyle Newman also posted something about it earlier today on his Twitter account.

    Apparently it is non-canon. For some reason I remember it being touted as "canon" at C6. Ah well. The old memory is going.

    What practical difference does it make if it's canon or not?

    The plot is pretty insane from what I recall and impossible to really fit in.

    How so? It's no more difficult to fit into the crammed timeline than Zahn's recent entries.

    Would have to relisten to it to make a list.

    If I recall correctly, the main issue was Xizor knowing about Luke Skywalker long before SotE. Also, didn't it set up Yet Another Bounty Hunter Encounter On Ord Mantellâ„¢?

    Does Han have to run into a bounty hunter every time he goes to Ord Mantell? It was a joke that implied he would but that doesn't mean it would happen.
