Star Wars: Legion Announced

With Fantasy Flight Games announcing Star Wars: Legion, we can't just sit back and ignore this piece of awesome, if only Warren and Lloyd were here to join in on the excitement. We got some time to demo the game at Gen Con and discuss what we would like to see from it in the future. What are you looking forward to most in this awesome beginning to what will hopefully be the next huge game in tabletop?

Gen Con 50

As you well know, get your comments into the live blog to win those awesome prizes, we can't describe how much we're emotionally destraught that Gen Con is over and we can't wait to get back next year!


This week we have 3 neat looking Kickstarters to empty your wallets, I'm not sure which one I want more!

Tune in tomorrow for our amazing XLBS episode of the Weekender where we'll be talking in depth about our experience and loot at Gen Con 50 this year. Check out the website's 7 day free trial and come on over to support us at Beasts of War.
