    Collector's Highlights

    The Empire Strikes Back is a 210 card set that features favorite Episode V characters plus many characters, ships and creatures that are new to the Star Wars TCG:

  • Favorite characters include: Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Leia, Han, Chewie, Boba Fett and Darth Vader
  • New cards include Snowtroopers, AT-ATs, Snowspeeders, Wampas, the Executor and TIE Bomber

  • Game Features

    The Empire Strikes Back includes two new card mechanics:

  • Armor: Units with Armor are more durable that their unarmed foes. They can only be hit when your opponent rolls a 5 or higher on their attack roll.
  • Enhance: Many cards (mostly Battle cards) have an “Enhance” cost in addition to their normal cost. If you can afford to pay the Enhance cost you get a much larger effect.
