Prepare for Your Star Wars™: Destiny Launch Party

#SWDestiny

Star Wars™: Destiny is a new collectible dice and card game coming this November that lets you control the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe. Now, step into your favorite galaxy and be one of the first to play and own this awesome game!

Star Wars: Destiny Launch Parties will be held November 18-20 around the world. These exciting gatherings are centered around Star Wars fans meeting new friends, having fun at your local game store, and playing Star Wars: Destiny before it’s released. Interested players should come prepared to purchase a Starter Set and share their love of Star Wars with their opponents through Star Wars: Destiny. Trust the Force, ready your blaster pistol, and jump into a galaxy far, far away!

What Is a Star Wars™: Destiny Launch Party?

A launch party is an event held at select specialty stores around the world before product for Star Wars: Destiny goes on sale. In other words, it is an opportunity for players to acquire and play the game before they can purchase it in wide release!

While a launch party can take many forms, the Star Wars: Destiny Launch Party is all about the new game product and is more casual than a typical tournament run at your local store. Everyone should be having fun playing Star Wars: Destiny and not concentrating on who wins or loses each game! Toward that end, players should expect to show up, purchase a Rey Starter Set or Kylo Ren Starter Set (while supplies last), and then join all of the other excited players at your store in Open Play. Players can also purchase Awakenings Booster Packs (while supplies last) to customize their deck after the Launch Party.

Where Can I Find a Star Wars: Destiny Launch Party?

These events are being run at select local hobby game stores worldwide. If you've never been to a game store in your area, you should search for game stores in your town or locale. Make sure to call the store ahead of time to find out if they are hosting an event and what time and date it is!

Is This a Tournament?

No. Star Wars: Destiny Launch Parties are casual events for new and longtime Star Wars fans to enjoy playing a new game in a great local game store. Players can find other people to play with, and even receive promotional items just for attending!
