For Star Wars fans there is nothing like the feeling of playing your favorite Star Wars game or watching your favorite Star Wars movies, but did you know there are some epic Star Wars board games out there? If not, here is a list of tabletop Star Wars games that you should check out, you can thank us later. Star Wars: Armada Want to plan your own spaceships course? Look no further than Star Wars: Armada. It takes some time to become a pro at this game, but true Star Wars fans will love it! Armada might seem a bit overwhelming (and a bit too geeky) at first. You use a plastic stick with a series of joints to plot the course of your ships. There are shields to consider on each side of your big ships, with dials to turn as you take damage. Do you want to use an action to transfer shields from starboard to the bow? Is it time to brace and minimize damage from a frontal attack? Should you use your special action token to improve your yaw for one turn? It’s a lot to take in, but it will...

A large-scale 3rd person style action game named Star Wars 1313 became cancelled after Disney took over Lucasfilm, however this games remains could be fuel for The Force Awakens. Currently, there are three Star Wars games in the works for PC and console gaming systems and the three development companies are Visceral Games, DICE, and BioWare. They all belong to the EA Games Company.

Posted by on Mar 10, 2015 in discussion, electronic arts, other starwars games | 0 comments

We love Star Wars games around here and most of you will know that there has been no shortage of ideas for them but very few that make it to completion and then stick around for any period of time for people to actually enjoy them. This can be very frustrating for the Star Wars gamer fan. How many games in the past couple of years have we seen scrapped? (Stop it already developers!) So here is a question to ponder: If EA was to create a new Star Wars game that isn’t part of an existing series (like Battlefront, Rogue Squadron, etc.) what would you want it to be about? If you could write the plot and script for a new Star Wars game, what would your game be about? Would you be looking for something with more of a Star Wars Galaxies feel to it or would you go in a completely different direction? Looking for a first person, action RPG style?
