Introduction to the Star Wars Trading Card Game
It's a term that
describes that intense conflict at the end of a Star Wars movie when the balance of the Force is on
a razor's edge. It's that point when the fate of the galaxy rests on the choices of those involved - when
even the smallest victory can lead to triumph for either the light or the dark side of the
Starfighters clash for supremecy in space, while on land opposing armies face off in desperate
maneuvers to gain ground; and further still, deep within the conflict, is the duel of the fates between the
very forces of good and evil.
It is the excitement of this three-fold conflict that makes the
Star Wars Trading Card Game the ideal way to plan and execute the high-stakes gambits and
intense action of a climactic Star Wars battle.
The Star Wars TCG holds all the
weapons, characters and ships necessary to recreate the intensity and action of the Star Wars
movies. You can experience the lightsaber duels, the desperate space battles and the pitched ground
assaults when you form your own battle groups and plans. Whether you play for the light or dark side of the
Force, you will ultimately choose which elements from the Star Wars universe you will use in your
plan to crush the opposition in one fell swoop.
With the Star Wars TCG you will have
the ability to make the conflicts as simple or complex as you want them. With variations in rules and
setup, there is simplicity balanced with strategy for all levels of play. While the initial game comes with
all the characters, starships, and ground troops you need to win each theater of battle, you can choose to
add and re-mix your own battle forces to fit your tactics and strategies. But, remember that even the
greatest of plans can be laid to waste if you do not use the Force wisely.
