Moving, attacking, and the use of special abilities requires you to draw and play cards from each of your character’s decks. It plays like a strange…

People worldwide reveled at the unique way director George Lucas and his team was able to depict spaceships flying through space and later, in battle. At that time, it was also truly amazing to see the different kinds of technology such as light sabers,…
