About Geektopia Epic Duels

Formerly geektopia.info, this site is a companion to the Star Wars Epic Duels Wiki.  We’ve been creating original Epic Duels content since 2003.  We have over 50 Star Wars decks that are fun to play, easy to understand, representative of their characters and relatively balanced.  We also have tweaked versions of originals and other fan-made decks, plus our own house rules and other information about the game.  We’ve also created a Lord of the Rings version of the game plus several original games of our own.  All games we play are 2v2 or more, and we’ve played as many as 20v20 (pictured).  We also host a few expansions such as Game of Thrones and Avatar the Last Airbender.

    Hi Roman, been a while since I’ve been back here… Haven’t had many people to play the game with but I’m trying to get some new people into it. Thanks for updating the Shaak-Ti deck, I’ll have to give it a try! (also keeping this site up… it’s great)
    I’ve got a question about the deck designer program. Whenever I print decks off from PDFs, I have problems aligning it just right. It’s good but not perfect. Some decks I’ve seen have added spaces between the cards on the front side which kind of hides any alignment problems, partly because the back images are larger than the front side. “Is it possible to learn this power?” Or do you have any tips for printing? I think the problem is the image part of the PDF doesn’t sit in the exact middle (slightly too far left, like 1/16 in, ends up being 1/8 between both sides).

    So I don’t have my own printer to use, I did have a cheap one but color printing was out of the question because of ink cartridge costs. I’ve been using fed ex print which is a little pricy ($.65/color page) but the quality is really nice. I’ve tried increasing the border a bit (I think to the 3 pixel setting) so we’ll see if that works, but I also noticed when printing from Adobe on another printer if I choose the print option “fit” it seemed like the page was oversized so I might try messing around with those options. Haven’t really had a chance to try again.

      On any standard inkjet, the color ink cartridges cost a pretty penny, but that’s still a lot cheaper than printing out at FedEx!

      I try to use the printers at work as often as I can but I do sometimes resort to the ol’ home printer.

    Ehh from my experience the printer cartridges were significantly more expensive. I am just trying to use my work printer and I think that will work out nicely!

      Hi Zubb, thanks for your interest.

      Please be specific about which figures you’re looking for, because there are different answers. Start by looking at the individual pages, such as the Kylo Ren page, and you’ll see what figures I’m using. If the answer isn’t there, that’s the best place to ask.

      Anyhoo, for Beckett and Enfys Nest, I don’t have any ideas right now. You might see what kind of merchandise Disney is making available. You probably won’t get Epic Duels scale figures but as long as they fit on the board, they’ll work. You can let me know if you find anything!

      For Kylo Ren, I would see if you can find a Star Wars Monopoly that came out after The Force Awakens. I bought it new for $20 or $25 so used, it should be even less. You’ll get figures for Kylo Ren and Finn. Rey and Poe can be covered by Leia Bounty Hunter and a Rebel Pilot, respectively.

      Anyone pre-Disney probably has one or more Star Wars minis that will work for it. Even minis are getting harder and harder to find…

      Hi tmag, thanks for your interest.

      Not likely we’ll come up with a Dryden Vos deck. I’m not even seeing that much interest in Enfys Nest and Tobias Beckett.

      If you’re interested in Dryden Vos, why not come up with your own? He definitely duels and could be made into a deck. Go to the Wiki and post some ideas and I’ll help you.

    Have you guys thought of uploading this to TableTop Simulator? It would be awesome with your collection. The base game is already on there and you could build off that.

    • roman says:

      Hi Nuge, thanks for the suggestion. Epic Duels has a long history on Vassal, where our stuff has always been available, but I didn’t realize someone had set this up on TTS, which is obviously way better. I do have TTS so I’ll look into it, not sure when though.

    • roman says:

      Btw I’ve checked in on TTS to see that Epic Duels is indeed set up, and they have the EU and 10YA decks included already, the latter of which includes 4 of our decks. What’s also true is that hardly anyone plays SWED on TTS, so I don’t think it’s worth the time to painstakingly add our entire collection to it.

  5. Tyler says:

    I see under your Finn and Poe deck that you guys use a monopoly figure for Finn. Do you know of any miniatures that’d work for Finn? I usually buy figures off of ebay so I don’t know what all is out there for miniatures.

    Thanks!

  6. Daniel says:

    Hi Roman, love the website. I am just getting back into Epic Duels. I probably haven’t played for 10 years. What would you consider to be the most “official” decks to play if someone is just starting out? Would it be the 10YA Tournament set (including both custom and originals)?

    Asking because of minor differences here and there. For example, in the 10YA set, Han solo deck is tweaked, but on this site it felt it wasn’t necessary. Or the minor differences between your Jango deck and the 10Ya set. I know at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter – I can always print and try them all out, but just wanted to know your opinion.

    Thanks!

    • roman says:

      Hi Daniel, welcome back. I would play the 10YA Custom Set with the base set, and tweak the base set if you want to. Beyond that, it’s more a matter of taste than anything, but I’d start with the EU Expansion, or just explore the characters you’re interested in.

      I don’t really know if anyone plays with the 10YA Tournament Set, but you’re welcome to use it if you want to play a set where all of the decks are roughly equal in strength, or if you just want some optional tweak cards for the base decks.

  7. Nick says:

    Hi, I’m just curious how you guys manage to print the character sheets as well as the cards. Is there like a good online service that most people use? Thanks.

    • roman says:

      Hi Nick. I use my home color printer and 110 lb. card stock, though card stock of 80 lbs. or heavier should be sufficient. I print the cards on one side, flip the sheets over, and print the backs on the other side. The quality has been plenty good but suffers as the ink starts to run dry, and the ink can be expensive, but it’s still the cheapest option.

      You can use a FedEx office or local print shop for higher quality prints but that gets really pricey. I looked into a card-making manufacturer once but also found it to be cost-prohibitive.
