TOURNAMENTS THIS WEEKEND...
To celebrate the holiday season, I'm going to share a new piece of game
play information that I learned from Decipher's Radio Free Decipher program!
Locations- Each location card will be double sided. It will
have the site location on one side and the system location on the other.
Whenever your opponent deploys a location, you may deploy the opposite
side of that same location.
So, if you opponent deploys the Cloud City site location (the one that
looks like the Carbonite Chamber), you may deploy your version of that
and deploy the Bespin system side of it. Thus, you'll always have
the site and the system in play.
Also, if you're interested in having Jedi Knights League play in your community,
get ahold of your local game store real quick. Decipher will be giving
away special Luke Skywalker cards to anyone who signs up for the Jedi Knights
If you're game store is interested, they can contact Kendrick
Summers at Decipher for all the details.

California with the secretive Rebel Strike Team!

some more juicy tidbits about Jedi Knights TCG? Another quote from
one of the guys at Decipher!
Bang! This is great
stuff! I am constantly finding myself down on the Art
floor looking at all the great 3-D models of
all the 'stuff' (note: that is a
technical term). The design teams (both
gameplay and art) are working hard and
what they are producing are next generation stuff!
The 60 artists that
the art team is working with are from all over the globe! I
was looking at a cockpit from a Russian aviator
the other day that was
fantastic! I also took a virtual trip through
the cantina that was modeled
right down to the cups on the bar and dirt on
the celling! We can make a
Stormtrooper dance a jig and make a Jawa kick
Yoda in the chin. This is
Imagine taking any single
scene in the Star Wars universe and being able to look
at it from a different angle! Instead of
watching Obi-Wan get cut down from
Luke's perspective, imagine what it would look
like from Vader's perspective, or
Obi-Wan's! This is one of the single most
exciting projects that I have seen,
and I can't wait.I'll give you as many updates
as I can throughout the
The Squadron Members
will not be asked to promote Jedi Knights. If you want to
promote it, that's great and we welcome it, but
we plan on having a dedicated
corps of volunteers just for that game.

to the grand opening of the Jedi Knights Trading Card Game website. Soon,
this website will be populated with awesome decks, cool card reviews and
lots of juicy articles.
What is Jedi Knights TCG? Let's hear what Decipher has to say about
A little over a year
ago, Decipher released Young Jedi to the gaming community. In the following
months, the game has grown steadily in popularity, drawing existing gamers
of all ages while expanding the player base well beyond the traditional
gaming community. Along the way, Inquest Gamer voted Young Jedi "Top CCG
of the Year" -- not bad for a game initially targeted at younger players!
But if you thought Young
Jedi's compendium of successes in 2000 was a wild ride, then spend a couple
months steeling yourself because there's more where that came from -- lots
Friday at Gen Con, Decipher
sketched plans for their latest game innovation, the Jedi Knights Trading
Card Game. Based on the characters, locations, and plotlines of the classic
Star Wars trilogy, Jedi Knights TCG puts a totally new spin on the movies
you know and love. Thanks to extensive digital imaging technology in the
hands of a talented team of computer artists, Jedi Knights TCG extends
the on-screen Star Wars world by moving the camera to new angles and perspectives.
Imagine seeing the cantina bar from Wuher's point of view, or studying
the interior of Jabba's sail barge.
In another bold innovation,
Decipher gave their digital artists a broad freedom to illustrate characters,
locations, and events in new ways. The result should be a set of game cards
with incredibly diverse and unique artwork. Collectors will love the set!
Each card includes the url to its own web site, which contains card background
information, strategy notes, artist credits, and behind-the-scenes tidbits.
There's more to the
game than its card art, and Jedi Knights TCG will definitely deliver in
the gameplay department. The game gets its easy and rapid play from Young
Jedi while inheriting a depth of strategy and game mechanics from its big
brother, the Star Wars Customizable Card Game. Decipher's game design alchemists
stir the pot even more with both two-player and multiplayer rules. With
its exciting combination of strategy and fun, Jedi Knights TCG creates
an entry point for new gamers, an advancement opportunity for Young Jedi
players, and a fresh challenge for Star Wars CCG aficionados.
Decipher will also roll
out a Jedi Knights TCG player league, with a host of special tournaments
and events. Regularly scheduled new card releases promise to keep the game
