Fun Ideas for You and Friends to do on “Star Wars Day”

“Star Wars Day”, is where fans of George Lucas’ space drama celebrate in honor of their beloved saga – Star Wars. Not only do fans celebrate by immersing themselves in all things Star Wars, including movies, cosplay, parties,shopping for new toy releases and more, it is also good etiquette to say to one another on that day “May the Fourth Be With You” in homage to the Jedi saying of “May the Force Be With You.” Bonus points to those that do it in the voice of Obiwan Kenobi. Nerdy, maybe – Fun, DEFINITELY!

We’ve listed above what most people do during this day, but we’ve come up with some other ideas that you can do to celebrate the day!

Play a Star Wars Game

There are many Star Wars themed video games to play on the market including the MMO Knights of the Old Republic and the first person shooter Battlefront II but I was thinking of something more hands on and creative that gets everyone away from a computer and console to interact with eachother – the Star Wars table top RPG.

Fantasy Flight Games is taking us back to an elegant age with this civilized game. This week, they announced that they’ll be publishing a limited edition two-book hardcover set of the original Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook and its companion Star Wars Sourcebook in a single slip cover.
