Top Tier Gaming [Star Wars: The Card Game - News]


Looking for Bloggers and Game Administrators
Posted on 08/13/14 by Jarrett | Comments: 0

Sometime in Late August / early September, Top Tier Gaming will be refocusing to be a general TCG/Miniatures Gaming site (we will be still supporting the Star Wars LCG, in addition to other games by Fantasy Flight Games and other companies). We are looking for game administrators - essentially, people interested in keeping Top Tier Gaming active for particular games of interest. This is a voluntary position, however it does include a monthly bonus for active participation for product in our web store (which will be launching with the new site).


We are also looking for staff moderators, and other content writers.Interested individuals in any position should send me an email at

New Star Wars Miniatures Game Announced - Armada
Posted on 08/08/14 by Jarrett | Comments: 14

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Star Wars™: Armada, a two-player miniatures game of epic fleet battles in the Star Wars galaxy!
Massive Star Destroyers fly to battle against Rebel corvettes and frigates. Banks of turbolasers unleash torrential volleys of fire against squadrons of X-wings and TIEs. Engineering teams race to route additional power to failing shields. Laser blasts and explosions flare across the battlefield. Even a single ship can change the tide of battle.
In Star Wars: Armada, you assume the role of fleet admiral, serving with either the Imperial Navy or Rebel Alliance. You assemble your fleet and engage the enemy. Using the game’s unique maneuver tool, you steer your capital ships across the battlefield, even while squadrons of starfighters buzz around them. Then, as these ships exchange fire, it’s your job to issue the tactical commands that will decide the course of battle and, perhaps, the fate of the galaxy.
