Sitting across from my playtest partner, I ask, “Which deck do you want to play? I have Kylo/Anakin, Boba/7th Sister, Yoda/Hondo, Aayla/Rose/Ezra, Thrawn/Talzin or Rieekan/Yoda/Partisan.”
“Hmm,” says my playtest partner… “I think Kylo/Anakin for lots of lightsabers!”
“Right-o then!” I say, “Which deck should I be playing? Remember, this is for the regionals – the biggest event I’ll be playing until the Nationals later in the year!”
“Duh, play your usual deck!” he says. So I do. We both know I won’t be taking home any prizes, but we also know that the rest of the game will be a whole ton of fun! My playtest partner is my (now 7) year old son and he quite enjoys slashing battle droids with lightsabers. It turns out, almost everyone I know does! It’s a very popular deck… to play against!
