Yup. Personally, I'm more interested in their LCG, though its taking some time to get used to it's "pod" deckbuilding style.

Yeah it was announced at GenCon. Might be interesting, I'll probably pick up the final version (I'm not spending $30 on a beta version).

I looked at it. My problem with it was that it doesn't use standard dice. They reinvent the wheel with dice that probably have to be bought along with the book. That doesn't impress me; I just think it's cleverly foolish.

Me, too. Daniel, Greg, and I playtested it and Gencon and it seemed pretty good. Their "edge battle" system has both enough similarities and enough differences with the destiny mechanics in Decipher SWCCG to intrigue me. The deckbuilding system does seem pretty weird, but then again it should also help keep the factions balanced. Plus it gives you a clue as to what your opponent's deck will probably try to do early on.

There is an app that uses their dice and uses reg dice too for like 5 bucks. That's easy worth it for me if I forget my dice. Yeah I know it's not the same thing than real dice but you still see the roll and dice unlike vassal.
