My Summer siesta is over (and by siesta I mean I’ve been busy as f*ck and have been forced to neglect my website duties). Let’s get back into it with some new spoilers for both X-Wing Wave 3 and Star Wars LCG Assault on Echo Base!
Today, Fantasy Flight Games unveiled another Objective Set from the upcoming Deluxe Expansion Set for Star Wars LCG.
Edge of Darkness is coming soon. We’ve charted our course and made the jump to lightspeed. Now it’s just a matter of time before you’ll be able to pick up this deluxe expansion and dive into all-new games of Star Wars™: The Card Gamewith its two new, playable affiliations – the light side’s Smugglers and Spies and the dark side’s Scum and Villainy.

Fantasy Flight Games continues to show us more and more of what’s in store in the coming expansions for Star Wars LCG. Today they gave us another look into Edge of Darkness.
“The dark side’s Scum and Villainy affiliation focuses largely on capturing light side cards, but it also benefits from an array of cards that “cheat” the standard rules for placing focus tokens on cards and determining edge battles. Likewise, the expansion’s Smugglers and Spies objective sets are full of ways for the light side player to “cheat” situations as well, utilizing cards like Lando Calrissian (Edge of Darkness, 328) and Cloud City Operative (Edge of Darkness, 324) to sneak past enemy lines, unopposed, and strike against dark side objectives.
Sometimes, however, you don’t want to focus on stealth and trickery, even as a Smugglers and Spies player. Your dark side opponent might, over several turns, manage to build an army of units too numerous for you to exhaust and bypass. Just as likely, he may build a force capable of overwhelming your defenses on strikes against your objectives. If you can’t stop such strikes, the dark side will quickly advance the Death Star dial, and you’ll lose. Thus, if you can’t win early, you’ll want to consider some way to tear down the army your opponent builds.”

I’ve added a SPOILERS section to the site. It’s a simple design to consolidate all of the released spoilers for future expansions. It’s not necessarily new information, but it is interesting to see all of the revealed cards in one place.
