1. Super fun to play with my entire family, including the six-year-old
2. Actually two games in one, since there are separate rulesets to play either the story-driven campaign missions, or the throw-down-and-slug-it-out "Skirmish Mode"
3. Totally worth it for the miniatures alone. . . IG-88!!!
My painting mojo is in overdrive right now. I have always wanted to paint up SW minis, but with only the old Grenadier models from the West End Games version to work with (not what I would exactly deem "crisp, detailed sculpts"), I never got the chance to do anything really exciting. And now, I have Boba Fett on the way in the post now. Pretty stoked on that.
The game really is great. I don't want to gush too much, but I give it my most enthusiastic approval.
Hope you are well, whether you made it to BOYL 2015, or Oldhammer in the New World 2015, or Gen Con 2015, or not. . .
I will continue to live vicariously through all you blessed bloggers. Thanks for what you do, lead brethren. Take care.
