Scrye Magazine: “The Guide to Collectible Card Games” #5.2 (Jabba the Hutt Cover)

April 28, 2011

I’m starting to think that I could make a collection out of nothing but magazines with Jabba the Hutt on the cover. There’s a surprising amount out there. This particular one is from Scrye, a magazine for collectible card game enthusiasts. This issue is from June 1998, but surprisingly (at least to me) the magazine managed to survive until 2009.

As I mentioned in my entry on the  Jabba’s Palace expansion to Decipher’s Star Wars Collectible Card Game (SWCG), I don’t play these kinds of games and never have. So leafing through a magazine like this is a bit of an odd experience. It’s difficult for me to read more than a sentence or two of any of the articles without my eyes glazing over. Many of them may as well be in a foreign language. That said, it’s interesting to see how many different games there are. In addition to Star Wars, there were Star Trek, Babylon 5, and Shadowrun-based games. The article that goes with the cover story isn’t really all that interesting, since it’s mostly just a preview of the cards that will be included in the Jabba’s Palace expansion set. But I did like the ad for the expansion set that was on the back of the magazine. It’s got some pretty funny descriptions of things you can supposedly do if you get the expansion.
