    I can't begin to say how many hours of enjoyment, frustration, pain, anguish, and sheer, geeky joy this board game has granted me. On first glance, it seems terribly complex, but it's incredibly simple to learn and goes by real fast. Does anybody else own it? If you don't, pick it up first chance you get! :D

    It's really awesome. I always end up turning to the dark side before the game's over so I can take the quick and easy path. :p

    I own it, although most of the pieces are now missing. Fun game, but they need to make an updated version. (That includes EP 3.)

    My friend's love this game, mainly because it is one of the few games I have a hard time winning playing pure light side...

    I agree, an updated version (even a Clone Wars version) would be great!

    I dont own this one, but I do have a copy of the updated mainstream version. Holy smokes, did they PC-ify the hell out of that? No poor house? Life tiles that get you extras cash for doing charity work and being green? Seriously, I dont need this level of propaganda in my board games! Gimme the old school Art Linkletter endorsed version

    I have this game and I love it!!!!!!!!! I've lost track of how many times I've played against my friends and siblings. For me, the light path usually works better because it has better endgame opportunities, and more importantly, I don't have any Fighting skills for darksiders to steal :p.

    Seriously. I won't be buying any of the updated versions of this game. Though the Star Wars one looks fun...

    I've actually thought about getting a set of the old games and was in Target the other day and saw them as "books"

    [image=http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/511RqhWDPUL._AA400_.jpg]

    I could see having the full set just to be able to have it on a book shelf somewhere.
