Select members of Club Jade have long been creating custom Star Wars board games – it’s why we have a Games Night at every JadeCon – but no one has yet approached the game of Operation… But now there’s going to be an official version. Alas, perhaps in deference to the youthful audience, the ‘victims’ are droids. A lost opportunity!
Someday, we hope, some brave Wild Karrde or Star Lady will find it in them to create the game as it should be: With Extra Crispy Anakin Skywalker. Consider the gauntlet dropped.

The con is over, but with so much going on there’s still a lot of coverage coming out from StarWars.com and the fans. (Like the video above.) Here are a few highlights
- The ForceCast did several shows at Celebration, but you don’t want to miss the one where they interview Mark Hamill.
- Ben Burtt talks The Sounds of Star Wars
- Video: Time-lapse of Eric Maruscak’s Clone Wars chalk mural.
- A recap of Bryan Young’s wildly popular ‘Why We Love the Prequels’ panel.
- See all the happy couples who tok the time to get (non-legally) hitched at the Commitment Chapel. (Yes, Lucas Online’s Bonnie Burton does explain why she married R2-D2.)
- Video: A very Disney Last Tour to Endor.
- Miss out on a print? StarWarsShop has some left!
- Were you at the Fandom 140 panel? Did you tweet at the panel? You may be a winner!
Your moment of zen: “I was sitting in the middle of the Force Unleashed 2 panel when I saw you from across the room.”

Round out your thumb drive collection with Japanese Lightsaber USB thumbdrives available at ThinkGeek. I can’t believe we’re getting these (not to mention an R2-D2 USB Humidifier) and still no Han in Carbonite thumbdrive. Step it up, Japan.
(They also have a new t-shirt.)
