General description:
There are a couple of good things about this card and a couple of bad things. Its major bonus is the extra battle destiny. An extra battle destiny in space is handy especially since there are not a lot of dark side cards that add battle destinies in space.

Uses:
I would only use this card if a deck met certain criteria. If a bossk was not already in the deck, the deck was designed for high force generation and the deck did not have "empires new order" in it. If a deck meets all that then i would put it in for space support.

Strategies and game play:
I would want to use this card with other ships that have a higher forfeit. Because it deploys for so high and forfeits for so little it is important to make sure you can get some good use out of it and make it worth your while. "Bossk in hounds tooth" adds one battle destiny which really helps in dark side space decks, and if you have to lose him because you do not have anything else that can be lost then it is almost a waist.

Ways to counteract it:
There is no protection from the space school bus

Strengths/Pros:
Adds one battle destiny
Power 7
Provides ability of 2
Hyper speed 4
Moves like a star fighter

Weaknesses/Cons:
Deploy 8
Forfeit 5
Destiny 1
No immunity to attrition
Can not add more pilots

Artwork and aesthetics:
Looks like Bossk is driving a school bus.

Overall rating:
6 out of 10

as a non player - i find these reviews to be of a highly informative nature - my thanks for helping a collector better understand certain cards and the game in total - anything that makes the game fun for everybody is welcome in my book - RBD

i also believe he looks like a bus driver - would have had him leaning back a bit to counteract the g force of space flight - of course - not being a medical type person - can not fault it too much - find this to be common with most scifi movies

The only thing this card has going for it is the battle destiny. For the same price I would probably rather deploy a star destroyer, Chimera maybe.

Good Review.

For me you are missing a point about this Card which makes it a incredibly usefull card:

It is a Capital Starship that moves like a Starfighter (giving it the ability to land on a Planet) which can contain 6 passengers + a vehicle.

Best option out there to get a full invasion army to a planet you are not able to deploy to (6 passengers + 1 AT-AT full of passengers).

This Card is considered by many Players as the Secret Weapon against any "Mind what you have learned"-Deck as it easily enables you to get some taskforce to Dagobah and show one of the Skywalkers how not to become a Jedi ;-)

Which brings the Image of Bossk driving a bus to a new meaning


Cheers, Nuit
