Product Review: Star Wars--Star Warriors

Last month, I took my girlfriend on her first visit to Half Price Books, near the Tacoma Mall.  Our timing couldn't be better, as we got there on the last day of the Memorial Day Sale.  Everything in the store was 10% off. 

So when I saw this copy of Star Wars Star Warriors for $50.  Even though the sticker said "as is," I grabbed the game without hesitating.  When I got home and opened it, I was relieved to see that, besides the box's dinged-up corners, the only thing missing was the 6 x 6-sided (d6) dice.  (Whew!).

Last year, I downloaded and printed the counters listed under the Boardgame Geek's Files Section.  The original counters are larger and include asteroids and turbo-laser turrets, but the downloaded version has a more variety of color backgrounds for the fighters and even includes a couple of Corellian Corvettes. 

I don't know if I'll play this game per se, but I plan on using the counters for fighter combat in my Redshift Chronicles campaign.  The game itself, has received a decent rating on Boardgame Geek, so either way, I'm definitely happy with my purchase.

I played alot of this back in the day. We combined it with the WEG Star Wars RPG. We had a lot of fun.

It seems like the right game to fit into the WEGSWRPG. I have a similar plan in mind.
