Product Description

Did you ever wonder...

What would happen if the Force was no longer divided? Jedi Knights could battle each other... Sith Lords could challenge one of their own....

What if classic battles could be recreated and have completely different endings? Imagine the unthinkable. Anakin Skywalker versus Darth Vader. Impossible? Not anymore!

In Epic Duels, you create hundreds of never-before-seen battles or relive classic duels.

Stage your battle in one of four different locations -- a landing platform on Kamino, the Execution Arena on Geonosis, the Carbon-Freeze Room or The Emperor's Throne Room.

Attack and eliminate your opponents one by one, until you're the last one standing. Unlimited thrill -- unending excitement and you control it all!

Most under-acknowledged game ever
February 13, 2006
Epic duels, in my opinion, is one of the most under acknowledged games ever. I was introduced to this game back in 2004 by a few buddies of mine and I have been addicted to it ever since. Even after purchasing and playing about fifty other highly rated games on Funagain, it is still my favorite hands down. Sadly, this game is not manufactured anymore. My girlfriend and I actually had to buy it off of Ebay for about seventy bucks, but it was well worth it. My friends and I enjoy the simplicity of the game all the while having enough strategy as well as luck to keep just about everyone involved. While most games only last about a half an hour, it’s fun enough for everyone to want to play a few more.

I've honestly clocked over half a thousand games on it already in a two-year time span, and it's still a blast to play. While people may believe the dark side characters are over-powered a few of my buddies and I have proven this concept to be false. Three friends of mine and I decided to pair off using the same partner for a full semester, playing over 80 games in this time span, switching between the dark and light sides after each victory. We found out that we were deadlocked with the same amount of victories, thus proving this assumption to be false.

If you have a chance to purchase this game I would highly recommend it. It’s simple. It’s fun. It requires a level of strategy. And it involves enough luck to keep you coming back for more and more and more and more and more.

Summer blockbuster!
July 16, 2003

All the reviews do a good job of describing the pros and cons of the game system and its components. ...But I can't resist adding my .02, so here's a summary:

SYSTEM:

  • GOOD POINTS:
    • Easy to learn and play.
    • Duels take only 15-20 minutes to play, on average.
    • Can support 2-6 players (more, if you want really long games).
    • Robust system offers open-ended possibilties for scenarios, house rules, and new characters.
    • FUN!
  • BAD POINTS:
    • Can take hours to play if 6-8 players run a single character deck apiece.
    • Some characters (like the Fetts) can't seem to shake their movie fate (let experienced players handle these characters).
    • Dirt-simple rules and turns of fate that hearken to simpler children's games a turn-off for some.

COMPONENTS:

  • GOOD POINTS:
    • 31 Reasonably well-painted and molded figures for the price. Star Wars RPGers and miniatures gamers rejoice!
    • Excellent board and card art that support the theme well.
    • Pieces in scale to those of The Queen's Gambit (for anyone desirous of making new, custom decks for Epic Duels using those pieces).
    • Parts and pieces encourage gamers to 'kit-bash' their own figures and boards.
  • BAD POINTS:
    • Cards and boards may not stand up well to repeated plays (but repalcement games can still be had relatively cheaply. A second set for your collection wouldn't hurt, and you still save money over most Euro titles).
    • Flimsy box and inserts. (Picky, picky!)

I've been playing this game for over a year now and it's still fresh, engaging, and fun. If you're a gamer that loves Star Wars, 'fight' games, and chances for light-hearted fun in the process, this game will be the summer blockbuster of your collection.

As a side note, many fans of this game have been busy since the game first appeared designing new boards, decks, and either digging up their old RPG miniatures or creating custom ones for their new creations. Some have built 3-D game boards, borrowed figs from other play sets, or even 'super-size' their games by playing with 3.75" action figures. All this testifies to the joy that the game brings to many of its fans. It seems that if you like this game, you LOVE this game.

In fact, a search of the internet will bring up a few fan sites for the game as well as various reviews and catalog entries. There's is even an active group on Yahoo! Groups for the truly fanatic. So, lots of support for this game exists and is being created by its fans, even though the game is often listed as out of print. If that's important to you, the game is a remarkable bargain.

Get a copy or two for your collection before it's too late!

Amazing

First of all dont listen to Jonathan he obviously isn't good enough to play as the dark side. Both sides are perfectly balanced...but who really cares? The whole point of the game is to try out any possibility you can think of. The best part of the game is that you can play teams of mixed light and dark. You can even attach 2 boards together in a 3 vs. 3 game. Some characters cant really defend, others cant really attack. Some are ranged and some aren't. It's using these differences along with the cards you draw, that allows you to win. These characteristics are especially important in 1 vs. 1 games. The artwork is also amazing but it doesn't really enhance the game.
