UPDATE: It looks as though Chris' Kickstarter campaign went through another round of fundraising as there is now 12 hours left to contribute. That being said, the page is displaying that the full $2,500 goal has been pledged at this point. Contribute a little more if you'd like, but otherwise we wish Chris a hearty congrats!
Thanks to Joey for the heads up!
Our friend Chris "Hothiceplanet" Smith has a new Star Wars Trivia Book Kickstarter project in the works in order to provide a trivia book that's accessible to all fans. Here's an excerpt of the project's description:
"This trivia book is based on the movies. This volume is based solely on the "Original Trilogy" with 1,138 trivia questions. The plan is for two more volumes on the "Prequel Trilogy" and the "Clone Wars" animated series.
This book is for all ages, but was created for the first and second Star Wars generation, to pass along the love of the movies to our third generation and beyond. This book will help to excite the younglings who have only known the "Clone Wars". Watching these movies, they will become more intrigued as they search for answers.
But still why this book? We have seen many trivia books in the past, but they all had one thing in common. All of them have behind the scenes and expanded universe tough questions. That is great for a geek like me. But not for my sister or nephew. Anytime we would play Star Wars Trivial Pursuit or play with another trivia book, I would always dominate. Why? Because I knew all the obscure behind the scenes answers and they didn't. This book in my opinion levels the playing field. When you sit down and play with friends and family, everyone has an equal chance of winning so to speak. Let's face it we don't just read Star Wars trivia books, we play them like a game."

Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
