Considering how many Clone Wars episodes revolved around getting to an escape pod and/or its occupants I don't see why having a model and scenario cards for it is a problem.

In less old news (the escape pod was announced 2 months ago), they released rules for smaller games on a 3x3. Looks kind of interesting at least.

Complaining about the release of 2 iconic characters (the only 2 to be in all 8 main Saga movies) and a terrain piece is a bit odd. Makes more sense for them to be on the field than Palpatine, and it's not like they haven't featured heavily in every single other version of a Star Wars minis game so far: they were in the original West End SWMB, the WotC CMG, and Imperial Assault. Palpatine was also in all 3 of those, so it's not like this is new ground that FFG is treading upon

Skirmish looks OK, it's basically just new scenario/setup cards and a lower cap on how many of each unit type you can field. Games are 5 rounds instead of 6. FFG has a 5 page PDF for it that includes the cards

The main selling point is the 3x3 table. A lot more pick up and play capable, both in terms of where you can set up and how much terrain you need.

Oh, absolutely. I've become a HUGE fan of anything on a 3x3, I wish all skirmish games adopted that size. 3x6 might as well be a 4x6 table, and even a 4x4 might as well be a 4x6 in many cases, but a 3x3 fits really well on a non-gamer's kitchen table or coffee table. It's one of the big reasons X-Wing got so popular, non-gamers and beginner gamers could play it without building and dedicating a surface just to gaming, just throw down a neoprene mat and start a game

I'll be playing skirmish mode when I need a faster game.

Although a friend was concerned that Clones already have such a low unit count that they may be at a disadvantage in Skirmish. Looking forward to hearing from others on that.

Love me some 3x3 skirmish games. Dracula's America, the skirmish rules for Grimdark Future and/or Age of Fantasy from OnePageRules, etc.

One of my new terms came from Ash from Guerilla Miniatures calling them "Kitchen Table Games".
