How a Star Wars / Disney video game faces charges that it is promoting gambling

Now imagine playing your friend who spent $200 for the random chance that his pawns obtain the board-clearing powers of a queen. Plus his king looks like Darth Vader and yours still looks like a scruffy-looking nerf herder.

You might get mad. Or you might up the ante and spend a few hundred bucks to even the odds. Now imagine that you’re both children.

These are some of the questions that have been gripping the video game industry in a controversy leading up to the Friday release of “Star Wars: Battlefront II,” this year’s marquee Star Wars title timed to Disney’s highly anticipated “The Last Jedi” film next month.
