Greetings Star Wars: The Card Game players!

Gen Con 2017 is fast approaching and with it comes an update to the Star Wars: The Card Game FAQ. Within it you will find a pair of additions to the Restricted List and a few changes to definitions of terms.

  • First, May the Force Be With You (Join Us or Die, Objective Set 112) and Spark of Rebellion (Galactic Ambitions, Objective Set 229) have been added to the restricted list together. Each will now anchor its own particular style of deck rather than combining the strong defensive tools of Yoda ’s set with the explosive potential of Kanan ’s set.
  • Endor Entrapment (So Be It, Objective Set 205) and Technological Terror (Technological Terror, Objective Set 259) have also been placed on the restricted list. The ability of the Death Star Engineers to ensure that a Gladiator-class Star Destroyer was always ready to both attack and defend made for a board state that was difficult to assail.
  • A rare combination of card effects made it possible for a Light Side player to occasionally end up attacking one of his or her own objectives. Text has been added to the “Engaging Objectives” entry to prevent this from happening (as was always the intent).
  • Lastly, the terms “Control and Ownership” have been added to the Definition section to explicitly spell out the difference between these two concepts. A number of entries related to control change already exist within the Game Play section, and each has been referenced in the full definition.

May the Force be with you!
