Star Wars Legion Demo arrives

Build. Command. Conquer.

“General! Prepare your troops for a surface attack.”
–Darth Vader, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Star Wars: Legion is a new Miniatures game of ground combat in the Star Wars universe by Fantasy Flight Games set to launch March 22nd, 2018.

Star Wars: Legion invites you to join the unsung battles of the Galactic Civil War as the commander of a unique army filled with troopers, powerful ground or repulsor vehicles, and iconic characters like Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. While innovative mechanics simulate the fog of war and the chaos of battle, the unpainted, easily assembled miniatures give you a canvas to create the Star Wars army you’ve always wanted to lead into battle—whether you fight for the monolithic, oppressive Galactic Empire or the ragtag Rebel Alliance.

Stop by or call Game Empire to reserve your copy today (626-304-9333), and while here play in a demo game! Game Empire will participate in the Launch festivities where you and other players will determine whether Game Empire, Pasadena becomes an Imperial Stronghold, or a Rebel Hideout. Sign up today!

    In Cruel Seas, ( by Warlord Games ) you take on the role of a naval crew manning their fragile coastal craft as they head out day and night to take on both the sea and the enemy. Command your flotilla of small ships as they head out to attack a convoy, drop off Commandoes for a behind-the-lines mission or task them with one of the other myriads of missions this small and versatile craft would perform.

    Team Yankee ( Battlefront Miniatures ) is a tabletop miniatures wargame that is set in a fictional World War III in 1985 based on the novel of the same name by Harold Coyle.

    The game is a standard two player miniature wargame with each player taking command of a company or battalion level force consisting of hand painted miniatures. The game provides one 6 different missions for the purpose of pickup games. There are also several scenarios in the book that allow the players to recreate some of the battles from the Team Yankee novel.

    Both formats are new player friendly, and are the most fun you can have blowing up your friends.

    Series: War of the Spark

    Draft Entry - $15.00

    Want a way to play that offers a level playing field and lets you check out new cards at the same time? Then a limited format like booster draft may be for you. Unlike constructed formats, where you arrive with a carefully constructed deck ready to play, limited formats allow you to build a deck from new cards as part of the game.

    At the start of booster draft, each player opens a booster pack and picks a single card. (Don’t show the other players what you pick!) Then everyone passes the rest of their pack to player on their left, each player then picks a card from the pack they just received before passing again. This process continues until all the cards in those packs have been drafted. Then each player opens a second pack, but this time, you pass the pack to your right. After all those cards are drafted, you do the same with the third pack, passing to the left again.
