We've been playing an app driven co-op campaign of Star Wars: Imperial Assault and we finally had time to get the group together to run the final mission today.  Lots of fun with an ending ripped right out of Rogue One for a finish.  Only two of our band made it out alive, the rest going down to lightsabers through the guts and force chokes but hey, at least the Wookie got a medal this time around.

We're going to try a co-op campaign of Descent next.

I've been debating selling my unplayed SW: Imperial Assault lately. 

Punched the boards out, but never got it on the table.  Not that it's a bad game at all.  Just that I have more Descent 2e stuff, and they're pretty much the same game minus the themes. 

Would still keep IA, but if I ever get around to picking up more expansions, I want to stick with getting those for the same game since the content variety pays two-fold considering the apps.  Having only the core IA set puts it behind in that race.  Besides already having a couple expansions for Descent, I've also painted more than half the heroes in it.

Hrmm.

LOL

I have IA, base game played one time (first scenario only), and two or three of the expansions as well plus lots of 'extra' minis too, most all unpunched/in packs. I don't want to sell them. Really would like to get to play them sometime.

I have This War Of Mine on my table, finally.

A rather depressing game, but it does have its bright spots. It's very unique though. Might deserve a video review more than a written one but I'll see.

If it's already punched, why not download the app and give solitaire a whirl to see if you think it's worth keeping?

I mean... I already have Descent, with it's app, and more content for it. 

Pretty much the same game; one being Star Wars, the other Fantasy.

Right. But what's stopping you from trying Imperial Assault out?

Just setup time & flighty interests.

The reason I haven't sold it is because I would like to get some play out of it since I originally bought it for that purpose.  ;D

Recently got into the "sell it if it's not getting played" mentality.  Mainly because I'm running out of shelf space and want to free some up.  Already sold a few, but another list has been in the making.
