The former Miniature Games forums have been expanded in scope. Other Star Wars Games is for Star Wars games other than the Star Wars D6 RPG. Discuss the FFG and WotC Star Wars RPGs. Discuss the Star Wars game licenses and Star Wars game business as a whole.

Discuss hybrid game systems or non-D6 homebrew Star Wars RPGs. (After my childhood D&D group had seen RotJ in 1983, we created a homebrew RPG called "Stars & Wars" mostly based on Basic D&D that we played for several adventures. I used to tell people I co-created the first SW RPG until I was told that gamers were using Traveller to play Star Wars since 1977.)

Discuss non-RPG Star Wars games such as miniature games, board games, card games, video/computer/online games, etc. Please specify games in the topic titles. Thank you.

Back around 1982 Milton Bradley contracted for the design of a Star Wars RPG. It was never published, but it had a number of cool features though overall the D6 game is a better fit for the Star Wars we see in the first 3 films produced.

I remember you mentioning that. It would be very interesting to see that now if it ever surfaced.
