Greg and I are back to discuss our first proper venture in the Awakenings block. We both jumped into Star Wars Destiny during the Legacies cycle, but have since bought a number of older Awakenings era boxes and have finally begun exploring those earlier sets. First up is Spirit of Rebellion, as those boxes have been on our shelves the longest. We discuss cracking packs over Zoom and playing through our boxes over four rounds of sealed play via TTS.

I’m going to give you all the details on the giveaway and how you can enter (deadline is February 26th). Afterwards, I crack two more Spark of Hope booster packs, generously donated once again by Kingwood Hobbies and Gameshop of Destiny.Continue Reading "Ep. 30: Jank Madness"
The time has come. I share my thoughts on the sudden announcement of Destiny’s demise and try to talk myself into being excited for attending Worlds in May. Then, I talk a bit about some decks I’ve tried out recently and recap a 1/2 box sealed battle I had with Greg using Legacies and the Rivals draft kit. Could my team of Yoda, Wedge Antilles, and a Clone Trooper win the day?Continue Reading "Ep. 29: Easy Pickings"
