  • From Jackson Pope on Out of the Darkness: Fearsome Wilderness Kickstarter Review

    We’ve run three FlickFleet projects on Kickstarter and they’ve all had a lot of backers come from Kickstarter. Though I wonder at the accuracy of that – it’s in Kickstarter’s interest to show how much they bring to the party, so backers who followed a link in an ad and then clicked the remind me link and back after the reminder email – do they count against the ad or Kickstarter: Reminder email?
    I think if your project is successful, you tend to get featured more by KS too, our projects:
    1) Funded with 4 hours to spare, 101% funded, KS brought 46%
    2) Funded in 3 days, 188% funded, KS brought 56%
    3) Funded in 15 mins, 3744% funded, KS brought 67%
    So funding early means you get more KS support. We’re going back to Kickstarter again in 3 weeks, so I’ll have more data soon!

    Just a side note: INTO THE WOODS has all 3 symbols, each on one different card.

    Hey there isn’t a back for these guys? It’s the same as page 1

    You guys should do a Boba Fett and Fennec Shand deck, that would be really cool!

    • From roman on Dark Troopers

      Thanks for your interest! If Boba has his own show, I will almost for sure make a deck for him, but I’d like to see the show play out a bit first.

  • From Separatist18 on Dark Troopers

    Its been awhile since I’ve played/haven’t seen Mandalorian but check the site now and again.

    32 hit points does seem ludicrously high. Most sets in SWED don’t have more than 28, and we’re talking all the points being “major characters”, *and* there’s the potential for “wasted damage” (if your killing blow on one of the troopers does more damage than the health a trooper has remaining, it doesn’t transfer to another trooper.)

    Even if the deck itself somehow played moderate or weak, it still seems like a heck of a lot of hit points to carve through for no reason, given you said even all four of these guys are no match for a jedi.

    I’d probably do 5 or 6 hit points each (6 would best fit the normal distribution of “total hit points” for a deck, while 5 would be accommodating the fact that these guys are all major characters. I could see a case for 7 if you only had to kill 3 of the 4 to win, even then 8 would kinda seem like a lot.

    • From roman on Dark Troopers

      I was actually thinking that I’ll probably go 7, which is still a pretty robust 28 hit points. Unlikely I want to go less than that but we’ll see how 7 plays. I think they should be pretty tough.

  • From Raistlin on King Arthur

    I know, the Boost 4 for those cards may be very strong. It is the tweak I’m monitoring the most.
    Alternatively I also considered to remove it and add the “DRAW 1 CARD.” text as the last sentence in Arthur’s ability (so he can draw when feinted).

  • From Raistlin on Sherlock Holmes

    Great deck this one. It depicts the characters very well, thematic and strong.

    In the end I tweaked one card (at least for now): COUNTERPUNCH. I limited its direct damage to only 1.

  • From Raistlin on Medusa

    A very strong ranged deck.
    For a ranged deck, Medusa has too many defences in my opinion, granting her a bit too much staying power, so I tweaked one card, HISS AND SLITHER; now it has defense 2.

  • From Raistlin on Big Foot

    This deck is really straightforward and strong. A bit too much in my opinion.

    So, for now, I tweaked two cards in Bigfoot’s deck to better balance it. LARGER THAN LIFE is now Attack 5 and IT’S JUST YOUR IMAGINATION is now Defense 1.
    I think it should be enough to better balance it.

  • From Raistlin on King Arthur

    I really like the game, but King Arthur is WEAK. No doubts about it.

    Here are the tweaks I adopted to rebalance him.

    EXCALIBUR: attack value is now 8
    THE LADY OF THE LAKE: added “Gain 1 action.”
    COMMAND THE STORMS: added “Draw 2 cards.”
    SWIFT STRIKE and REGROUP: the Boost value on these cards is now 4

    Tweaks motivations:

    EXCALIBUR: well, it must be better represented. The magical sword should have had a unique, powerful ability in my opinion. Now, at least, it has a unique powerful value. 8 is a really high value in Unmatched, but considering that on average we will strike with EXCALIBUR once in the game, I think 2 more damage are acceptable. I know, it can be boosted too, but boosting it’s not so automatic with King Arthur as many of us has seen during play. In the end I consider EXCALIBUR a bit like Bowcaster for the Han-Chuby’s deck in Epic Duels, which also has a ‘tutor’ card to find it in the same way THE LADY OF THE LAKE does.

    THE LADY OF THE LAKE: giving to this card the “Gain 1 action” ability will grant a half surprise effect. Half because the opponent will know that your next action will probably be an EXCALIBUR’s attack, but it’s now to you to bluff or not. Anyway the other half of the surprise effect resides in the fact that you can now strike with EXCALIBUR in the same turn you draw THE LADY OF THE LAKE, which is great in my opinion.

    COMMAND THE STORMS: the deck has a terrible lack of drawing power, mostly considering King Arthur’s ability. So I checked all cards, trying to find the one to power up. I wanted a sure un-feintable draw effect, so I opted for a Scheme card. COMMAND THE STORMS is a so and so card by its own, so I found it perfect for the tweak. Now you move all characters 3 spaces and draw 2 cards. It’s strong as a defense, putting spaces between you and the opponent if you need it, for a breath moment; but it’s strong also in offense, shortening distances for an attack, if desired. To be honest I would liked most a King Arthur’s card, but Merlin is quite resilient and it shouldn’t be a great problem to rely on him.

    SWIFT STRIKE and REGROUP: I wanted here some better Boost cards. I chose SWIFT STRIKE and REGROUP because they are not those great cards to play, so at least now they have a better, alternative use.

    • From roman on King Arthur

      I don’t follow what you did with SWIFT STRIKE and REGROUP but I like the other tweaks, EXCALIBUR especially. Why should Excalibur be no better than an attack Big Foot has 3 of? Yes 8 is a high value but if there’s one card in the game that should be a higher attack than all of the others, it’s Excalibur.

  • From Raistlin on Is Unmatched the new Epic Duels?

    Ok, I’ll check the page you suggest.
    Yes, I see you produced two games. Congratulations! I’ll check them too.

    I’ve seen your Mandalorian deck. It’s interesting. Ah, by the way, I added some Battle Systems pieces to my SW Epic Duels scenery. Maybe you know the Battle Systems productions. The sci-fi environment is suitable fo SW Epic Duels.

    I’m watching The Mandalorian and I like it. Finally something interesting from the Star Wars universe… I don’t know what you think about it, but the last trilogy was really BAD in my opinion, a total mess and a wasted opportunity to say something new. I think the SW movie saga is irretrievably dead… sigh 🙁

    Un saluto dall’Italia 🙂

    Hi Roman, I’m happy to see you always active at the game table. I bought Unmatched too and I like it very much. I think I’ll buy everithing of the game; I miss the Star Wars brand, to be honest, but I like so much the game system that it’s ok anyway.
    I’m quite satisfied with the average balance of the characters; while one is clearly weak (Arthur) and some are a bit too much strong (Medusa, Bigfoot, S. Holmes), generally the authors did a really good job – also with theme, artwork and new twists to the mechanics.
    You know, I’m obsessed with balance in games, so I’m already tweaking here and there to better balance the whole eheh. However the premises are good, I think I will not have too much work to do in Unmatched! 🙂

    Now I salute you, old friend. In time we will meet again.
    See you!

    Maurizio “Raistlin”

      Ciao Maurizio,

      If you have tweaks please share them at the main Unmatched page! I’m enjoying the game, not that I have gotten much chance to play it in 2020. I have some tweaks for Mando I want to make to get him into the stronger range.

      We’ve got a couple of games out now, have you checked them out?

    Bonjour,

    Je découvre votre site ce jour.
    Mon fils adore ce jeu.
    Je voudrais lui offrir des extensions.
    Est-il possible d’en acheter?
    Mes compétences en informatique sont très minces……..

    Merci pour votre aide.

      Hi and thanks for your interest. You can print out anything you like here onto card stock paper, and cut it out yourself. All you need is a color printer and a pair of scissors.

  • From umondy on Freedon Nadd

    Nice, I actually was thinking about that he left his biggest impact after his death. So I think this is very fitting. Exar really is the obvious choice even though I always dreamed about a cool deck featuring Aleema and Satal Keto because they are pretty cool and unique but never received any love.

  • From Aaron (Darth Wolverine) on Cattle die, kinsman die; the self must also die: Raiders of the North Sea review

    I absolutely love this game. One of my favorites, and the app is spectacular for solo play.

    I think you should check out Champions of Midgard as well.

  • From Dylan on Epic Duels

    There is a lot of helpful info on all the character cards and creating decks, but how did you determine the HP for everyone?

    Go to comment
    • From roman on Epic Duels

      Thanks Dylan. It’s kind of a feel thing, but your majors are generally going to range from 13 to 20. When in doubt, start at 16 and see how that feels. The guidelines posts have more on this:

  • From Dylan on Basic Decks

    This is SUPER handy! But how did you determine HP for each character? Is there some kind of method for that?

  • From Ethan on Master Obi-Wan Kenobi

    May I also suggest that “I will do what I must” could be switched to, “Don’t lose it again” referencing in Attack of the Clones, when Obi-Wan gives Anakin his lightsaber back after chasing Zam?

    I feel like “I will do what I must” is such clearly a reference to Obi and Anakin’s battle in ROTS that it doesn’t make sense that the card would heal Anakin.

  • From Ethan on Jedi Hunter Grievous

    I posted this comment on the Anakin sith page as well, but I’m just looking for more ways to get into this game.
    This page is so cool, my friends and I have been getting SUPER into epic duels the past few months and we’re looking to update our decks to keep things exciting, how would you go about finding physical copies of these decks, figurines, and character sheets?? I would love to find and buy an Anakin Sith and General Grevious if you have any suggestions of websites or other locations!

    I also read these comments and it seems like a lot of people print off character cards themselves?? if you could give a brief explanation it would be SO appreciated, thank you very much!

    • From roman on Jedi Hunter Grievous

      Hi Ethan, thanks for your interest. You’re at the the right place, here and the Wiki. You will find all the decks and character sheets you need here and there. I would go to the characters section and explore the characters you’re really interested in.

      http://epicduels.pbworks.com/w/page/9779461/FrontPage

      As for figures, yeah that’s a challenge but start here, and go ahead and post any questions you might have:

  • From James Matthews on Luminara Unduli

    Can you explain Force Bubble
    Tournament tweak? Does the character have to be adjacent to both Luminara AND Barriss to take 2 damage? Or does the character have to be adjacent to just one of them?

    Go to comment
    • From roman on Luminara Unduli

      Sure, you only have to be adjacent to one of them, but the tweak is that even if you’re adjacent to both, you still take only 2 damage. As I think about it here late in 2020, that’s probably what it should have been all along, but the “original” version can do 4 damage to a character adjacent to both Luminara and Barriss.
