Anyone else playing this? It’s a full-fat CCG from fantasy flight games.
While the starters are quite playable, it is already pricey to dabble in, as the mechanics of the game subtly encourage large scale buying.
That said, I have found the actual gameplay to be a lot of fun: it has significantly more tactical back and forth than the average CCG, making playing it a very satisfying experience. The cards have great flavor, so thematically it’s a hit, too. Interestingly, in spite of the dice being a core part of the gameplay, there are so many different ways to modify and control them (at a price, always at a price!) that the gameplay feels non-deterministic without being overly random. Destiny is actually a great name for the game, since it is really all about forging a destiny for yourself out of the chaos of the dice.
Any thoughts are welcome, although let me put up a brief FAQ below to take care of a few issues:
Q: I hate CCGs, they cost a lot of money!
A: They sure do! Thanks for letting us know! That’s not a question, though.
Q: That rascally Fantasy Flight Games will ruin this game with expansions!
A: Also not a question, but okay, thanks for the warning!
Q: Aren’t you bored with Star Wars?
