Come and Meet Some of Our Supporters!

We here at the Golden Dice Podcast have enjoyed producing content for the Star Wars Destiny community since the beginning of 2018. From those first episodes we have been overwhelmed with the support of the community. This support has come in many forms such as kind works, advice from other content creators, pledges on our Patreon page, and even our newest (amazing looking) Alt Art card as a gift. We wanted to give a chance to these supporters of ours to have a voice on our platform. Come and join us in our discussion!

Eldis

  • Tell us a small amount about yourself and your history with Star Wars in general!

-Star Wars has been a fixture in my life for as long as I can remember. I’ve loved it since I was a kid. Sick day? Time to watch the Original Trilogy. I had sourcebooks, toys, etc. I also used to play the SW Miniatures game by WotC back in the day…I was #1 in the world for a time according to DCI.

  • How did you get into Destiny?

-I was very hesitant at first. I generally try to avoid dice games having played and been disillusioned by the likes of HeroClix and DiceMasters. However after finally breaking down and demoing it I really enjoyed it and knew my love of Star Wars would win out. And it did!  

  • What is your favorite style of deck to play?

-I really like Middle/Middle pairings of strong characters, allowing for a more midrange style. However mill’s current success has been something I’ve been very interested in.

  • What do you want to see going forward in the life of Destiny?

-As the power level of the game seems to be increasing, I’m interested in seeing how it balances out. I think the game has found a very interesting triumvirate of deck types; aggressive/bursty damage decks, vehicles, and mill. I want to see what else might develop.

  • Why do you support the Golden Dice Podcast?

-I love these guys. They’re wonderful. I’d support them in anything! Even if they won’t let me on the podcast ever 😉

  • What other content or swag do you want from us?

-I’m all about branded merch. I love the shirt, let’s get dice/card boxes, dice trays, sleeves, etc.

  • How dumb is Shane?

-Pretty damn dumb. But at least he understands and preaches the beauty of 2 Shield die sides. And his jank builds are unrivaled.

Flockton

  • Tell us a small amount about yourself and your history with Star Wars in general!

– I have played many star wars video games. I love star wars the old republic and love the tv shows.

  • How did you get into Destiny?

– Shane

  • What isyour favorite style of deck to play?

– fast and guns, I don’t have any ancients or force speeds so I can’t play blue.

  • What do you want to see going forward in the life of Destiny?

– Shane at a store championship or regionals.

  • Why do you support the Golden Dice Podcast?

– For those sweet alt art cards.

  • What other content or swag do you want from us?

– Deck building guides and discussion on how to make some decks top tier.

How dumb is Shane?

– How much time do I have to explain?

Inception

  • Tell us a small amount about yourself and your history with Star Wars in general!

-My name is Justin, I’m 12 and a CPA living in Dallas/FortWorth TX.  Star wars was a big part of being a kid. We watched the OG trilogy on VHS all the time, and made it to the theaters several times for the prequels.  For whatever reason they were a lot more entertaining you were under 10.

  • How did you get into Destiny?

Star Wars and collectible card game?  I said no for as long as I could, but eventually after watching some gameplay, trying it out on TTS, and finding boxes of Awakenings/SoR for much cheaper than MSRP on ebay… I dived in head first.

  • What is your favorite style of deck to play?

The ones that let you claim and then I do what I want.  Durdling is a lot of fun. This has led to a lot of vehicles play.

  • What do you want to see going forward in the life of Destiny?

More Star wars Lore, and a constant healthy meta where every deck has its    counters. Hoping the drastic change in the game when rotation hits won’t lead to broken combos.

  • Why do you support the Golden Dice Podcast?

Jack is beautiful.

  • What other content or swag do you want from us?

Double sided tokens, Jack loves those.

  • How dumb is Shane?

I think its hilarious u kids talking shit about Shane.  U wouldn’t say this stuff to him at a store championship, hes jacked.  Not only that but he wears the freshest clothes, eats at the chillest restaurants and hangs out with the hottest dudes.  Yall are pathetic lol.

Coleman

  • Tell us a small amount about yourself and your history with Star Wars in general!

– My name is Coleman and I am 23 and am currently living in East Texas. I have just graduated with a Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering and currently an intern, looking for a full-time job! I do not remember the first time that I watched the Star Wars, but I do know that I have always loved the movies. I honestly enjoy The Phantom Menace more than any of the other movies and Qui-Gon Jinn is my favorite Star Wars character (super stoked about the new Qui-Gon). I would not say that I am a Star Wars fanatic, but I have always enjoyed the lore and the universe.

  • How did you get into Destiny?

– My friend was an avid Magic player but had quit and was looking for a new game. He found Star Wars Destiny and told me that I should get into it. I have never played serious card games (CCGs or LCGs) or dice games, so I was hesitant to try it. After a few months of him playing I finally tried it, and then bought a couple boosters for fun. I was immediately hooked. I have been playing for around two or three months now. I did get to participate in the Houston GQ!

  • What is your favorite style of deck to play?

-I would say that given I am so new to the game I am more drawn to certain characters than to a particular style. I enjoy playing Boba/7th Sister, but also am enjoying a Gungan-vehicles Trilogies deck. I will find a character that I think has an interesting or fun mechanic and then try to find optimized builds for that certain character.

  • What do you want to see going forward in the life of Destiny?

-The thing I would love to see going forward in Destiny is a wider audience reached and the player base to grow. This community is super friendly, and seems to only attract nice people, at least from all the interactions that I have had thus far in this game. The more people that join the community the better in my opinion. I would love to be able to consistently see 15+ people at my local game store.

  • Why do you support the Golden Dice Podcast?

-I support the Golden Dice Podcast because I thoroughly enjoy listening to Jack, Tommy, and Shane. I think they are super down to earth and seem to enjoy making each episode. The podcast helps get me through long days at work, and I want to support as long as I can so that they can make content as long as they wish. In the same vein, I also support to show them that they do have fans who enjoy and appreciate what they do.

  • What other content or swag do you want from us?

-I would enjoy live game play of the GDP crew playing each other. Seeing Jack or Tommy play vs. Shane’s ‘jank’ decks would be fun. I love the Maul alt-art and would love to see what more the GDP community could come up with.

  • How dumb is Shane?

-I love Shane. Sure, people say I have awful taste, but I love the guy.

Allen

  • Tell us a small amount about yourself and your history with Star Wars in general!

– Names Allen. I’m 46 and live in upstate NY. I have a degree in Auto Tech and currently work as a trash removal stooge. I’ve always loved SW. Saw the originals in the theater as a kid. Had all the figures and ships. Now I’m having a ball taking my daughter to the new films on release night.

  • How did you get into Destiny?

– I’ve never played any card games before. I got into destiny because of my brother Cliff.  He was ga ga over the game and kept bragging about it. One day I bought 6 packs and started texting him pics of them to be a dumbass. After rolling em a few times I thought this could be fun.  A grand later here I am.

  • What is your favorite style of deck to play?

The one that will make my opponent go WTF is this. My rebel trooper rookie deck is still my fav.

  • What do you want to see going forward in the life of Destiny?

–  Going forward I’d like to see a separation of ages in tourneys and possibly faster release of smaller sets.  Instead of one huge every 3. Maybe here’s your blue set and a month later here’s your red.

  • Why do you support the Golden Dice Podcast?  

-I support you guys for a buck. Lol.  Not really breaking my bank. But seriously.  You guys are fun. It’s like a dysfunctional frat in here.  The 3 of you guys compliment each other really well.  

  • What other content do you want from us?

– Not sure.  You guys do a good job covering a tad of everything.

  • How dumb is Shane?

– Shane’s a hell of a freaking guy.  If I had a sister I’d let him date her.
