Star Wars Epic Duels Wiki

 

 Hasbro Board Game, released 2002, out of print.                                

 

 

This wiki was created as a reference and catalog for all things Star Wars Epic Duels and has become the primary site for Epic Duels content and discussion.  Our goal is to use this site as a repository of all user-created Epic Duels content:  new decks, new maps, new extensions to the online VASSAL Engine module for Epic Duels, plus alternate rules, tweaked decks and more. There are also theory-oriented sections for the hardcore Epic Duels fan that includes component design theories and strategies. 

 

If you're brand new to the wiki, check out the Start Here page.  Or, click one of the links in the SideBar to the right, or use the Search box to find specific content. 

 

This wiki is largely an open-source project, so users can login and create pages, and add information or comments to any current pages, including uploading their own Epic Duels creations to share. The administrators reserve the right to edit or remove any content.  If you'd like to contribute to the wiki, please read this first.

I did post what's probably 99% finished in terms of gameplay and deck composition a few weeks ago but it may have been buried in a fairly active period:

http://epicduels.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/133130550/Game%20of%20Thrones%20Complete%20Expansion.pdf?fbclid=IwAR2OVyuzl79a-Ytc-kihu5ItnwVeKZZmU__931keSjCeLat4vqFa-nRX40A

Most of the changes from here will be mostly cosmetic. Aside from changing Joffrey's Whitecloaks for a different power offense (having a Mace Windu battlemind clone, doesn't make much sense in a deck without drawing ability imo), and changing Robert's Rebellion.. maybe to just affect basic combat cards. Right now its OP combined with Its a Great Crime. That and I'll be tweaking the tribute cost of the field cards after much play testing cause they were pretty much guess work to start.

The cards I posted in the image above with an inverted black background/white text are what I'm considering 'signature cards'. These are the cards most decks have 3 of (some exceptions 2), and are the bread and butter, most powerful cards in the deck. Right now its purely cosmetic, but in my future concept of event cards a characters signature card gets altered to be more powerful when a player achieves an in game objective. Eg. an event like 'damage an opponent in combat and with a special card in one turn' would result in a card Tyrion's Lannister always pay their debts having a 3def value instead of forcing him to take full damage.

I briefly considered changing all cards to this black version, but I can't justify the extra cost of the black ink, and reprinting all 20 decks lol. That and it looks great in contrast with some deck colours and terrible with others. Right now its just a useful way of showing new players these are their core cards. I also want to put some sort of symbols on special cards to signify how many there are in a deck. Something like star = 1 per deck, diamond = 2, circle = 3, but I don't want to steal from pokemon lol.

Hey thanks for that direct link. It looks very cool and I will take a closer look when I have some time. Stuff like that always makes me feel stupid for not coming up with that on my own. I love all the ideas you included. Of course, why not use the SPECIAL text space for more and different cards?! That is a great concept. Putting cards on the board or field like you call it. Has always been around in some way but always been difficult to spell out and all that. Now it is super easy the way you do it. Also to give some infos what the go to cards are and how many of those cards are in one deck. It is SO FREAKING SIMPLE but so GREAT! When you have a set of 150+ active decks like I have in no way you always remember all of that and it makes it so much better to play a deck the right way without studying it endlessly before starting a game. This should be so obvious but took us so long until you put it on here.

I absolutely get your problem of not wanting to reprint everything. I encountered this stuff SO many times. Where I had to reprint stuff, etc. Even now after seeing all your great stuff I get the feeling I have to edit ALL my decks and reprint them :D :D :D

Can't wait to take a closer look and maybe even adopting some of your ideas into my Star Wars decks.
Cheers and big thanks again from me and the whole community!

Is it possible that the storage space of the wiki page is exhausted? Today I couldn't upload my new deck until I deleted two of my older ones....

Roman F said

at 9:15 am on Jun 13, 2019

Um, yeah, afraid so. :(

I'll look into getting more, but I'm not sure if it's possible. Might need another site for storage and we just embed links. I'll have to think it over.

umondy said

at 10:39 am on Jun 13, 2019

Okay, let me know if I can help.

JAG18 said

Game over man, game over!

Ahem, so yeah that sucks. I'd be more than willing to move all my stuff over to Mediafire (which I can also use for my future decks too), but that's only gonna free up so much space.

Darth Wolverine said

I was wondering when that was going to happen with so much trafficlately. I've got some free time to move my Marvel decks off-site today, so I'll do that.

I'd like to politely suggest that any non Star Wars material, such as the Game of Thrones content and even the Smash Bros content, be moved to seperate sites to free up space. It's simple enough to do, and I'd like to think we're all supportive enough of our work that we can take the extra clicks to get the content we want.

Roman F said

at 10:35 am on Jun 13, 2019

I think that's a good suggestion. We have space (for now) at geektopiagames.com, and it can fill some of the hosting role that epicduels.com used to fill.

I'd be happy to set up sections for GOTED and Avatar, but I'd prefer not any SW content that isn't ours, and not to host Smash Bros.

umondy said

at 10:42 am on Jun 13, 2019

Agreed...we need to get more space for SW stiuff, but I am definately always in favour if we can keep as much stuff as possible available at one site. We just had a little broken link armageddon and that kinda sucks.

Sophist said

I'll have the full set GOT individual sets for the geektopia page by the end of the night. How do you want me to send them to you?

Roman F said

at 8:03 am on Jun 24, 2019

Emailing them to me at romanfarraday@yahoo.com is probably the easiest.

Hello everyone! This is Rob from http://12wayduels.blogspot.com/ - we run a league where we play with twelve people at the same time, hence our "12-Way Duels" moniker. Head over to the blog to see our recaps, stats, etc. This fall will kick-off season six in our league. We're over 70 games played at this point, have travelling trophies, custom boards, etc. It's all fairly insane but fun.

Next month we'll do our annual "Singles Tournament". We'll have 32 individual Duelers with four entries each (two light side, two dark side). That makes for 128 entries, twice the size of the NCAA tournament. We use each board for the four "regions", thus the final four are the winners for each board.

Roman F said

Welcome Rob! Where you been, my man? Your blog is awesome!

urob said

at 5:07 pm on Jun 28, 2019

Thanks! Sorry for the delayed response to you reaching out. Duels is very much alive in here in Waco, TX. I held the first 12-Way Duel back in 2002 when I lived in Indiana. I had a different league going when I was in Tennessee back in 2007-09, but nothing compared to how it's taken off here in Texas. My 10 year old (she turned 11 the next day) won our May Duel and that might have been my proudest moment as her father, lol...

I've recently been able to figure out how to assemble some half decent maps. I'm not great at it or anything yet but I'm considering do a short write-up to give those interested something to work with.

Roman F said

at 2:23 pm on Jul 9, 2019

Yeah not bad! Would appreciate a write up. Never been able to figure it out myself.

umondy said

Can't wait to see it.

Hey all. I know this isn't Epic Duels related, but I'm the guy that created the Deck Designer and now I'd like your help with my first Kickstarter: http://epicduels.pbworks.com/w/page/134609859/Capital%20Vices%20Micro-Game%20Kickstarter

Roman F said

Awesome Corey! Good luck with your KS! I will back it and tweet it for sure!

We're playing our annual singles tournament next weekend - 32 Duelers, you get four different characters/chances to play! You can check out the blog to see the preview post. I made it to the finals last year but my Yoda lost to Maul on Geonosis...

FYI - Emperor Palpatine of all people won the tournament this year! Quite unexpected...

Darth Nihl & Darth Talon by Umondy is an amazing looking deck. The art and the card descriptions look great.

umondy said

at 12:02 am on Sep 13, 2019

Thanks for the kind words. Let me know how you like playing it.

Roman F said

New trailer, new movie, new TV series (The Mandalorian) and that will mean new decks!

Roman F said

at 9:52 pm on Nov 19, 2019

Who's ready to make decks from The Mandalorian?

Space: The Final Frontier. Our Wiki is running out of space. I doubt it can be increased without spending money, which I'm not about to do (when I sell through my 3rd printing of Cage Match, years from now, I'll consider it). If you have content on the Wiki, please determine if any of it is obsolete and can be moved elsewhere. Even if it is obsolete, I don't like the idea of removing content but in some cases deleting the content may make sense. Please consider it. Feel free to ask questions or make other suggestions as to how best to free up space for new decks.

Roman F said

Well adios to Yahoo! groups. That Epic Duels group was one of the very first online groups I was ever part of, I'm sad to see it go, even if lost most of it's value years ago. Still liked having the storage too.

Has anyone created a Discord group for this by chance? If not is there any interest in doing so? Not for anything specific, just to discuss anything about the game (balancing decks or whatever).

JAG18 said

at 1:46 pm on Jan 20, 2020

To my knowledge, no one ever has. I know this came up a few months ago on the front page, but the consensus back then was that there wasn't enough interest in the game to justify the creation of one (although I don't know if that's still true or not).

MiThiKaL said

at 2:08 pm on Jan 20, 2020

I feel it is at least a try, cant hurt anything. Its free to make a server and if it doesn't work out, everyone can just abandon it.

MiThiKaL said

at 2:21 pm on Jan 20, 2020

It could potentially have more members than expected. People may not have something worth posting to the page here, but that doesn't necessarily mean they don't want to be involved with the community. May allow us to grow the fan base even more and get to know the members better. Of course, it wouldn't replace the PBworks page since their completely different platforms with different functions.

P.S. Not being able to edit is rough, cant imagine why that isn't a feature yet...

JAG18 said

at 2:43 pm on Jan 20, 2020

Hey, man if you want to then go for it; you'll never know how far you'll get until you try.

And yes, the lack of an edit function is stupid and annoying. :/

umondy said

What is a discord group?

MiThiKaL said

at 2:23 pm on Jan 20, 2020

Basically a chat room with text and/or voice chat. Its typically used for gaming communities. You can create a server for anything tho.

MiThiKaL said

at 8:39 am on Jan 23, 2020

Well I went ahead and made a discord for this, not sure how it’ll turn out but it’s worth a shot. Any moderators here are welcome to be premiered Admin access on the server, let me know if you are interested.

umondy said

Sure. Always interested in everything ED!

Roman F said

The discord is awesome! I think we should announce it to the Yahoo! groups, BGG and Facebook.
