We’re celebrating Life Day today with this week’s flashback to the Life Day Event from last year. Nominated by Hapax Legomenon on discord, Life Day won the Rebellion era Event card spot for the 15th anniversary fan’s choice set.
This week’s card is one of several Space unit cards released in the Empire at War mini set. The TIE Defender Flight shares design DNA with the TIE Defenders from the Battle of Endor and Fires of Rebellion expansions.
This week’s card is a crafty Character from the recently released Empire at War mini set. Zann comes with a series of corruption counter mechanics that can buff your own Consortium units, while also offering a way to remove key abilities from your opponent’s corrupted units. The loss of a powerful ability like Armor, Lucky, Stack, or Evade on a key enemy unit could turn the tide in Zann’s favor.
Happy Halloween! We’re celebrating today by releasing Empire at War, the second Star Wars mini set for the SWTCG. Empire at War includes content from the video game of the same name, with a focus on the Forces of Corruption expansion. As mentioned with the release of the Imperial Assault mini set in May, the idea behind minis is that they would each be packaged as 1 complete pack of cards, instead of as separate boosters. Keep an eye out for more mini sets in the future!
2022 marks the 20th anniversary of the A New Hope expansion being released. This vintage 2002 poster highlights the Accuracy and Pilot abilities, 2 new game-changing keywords introduced in that expansion.

This week’s flashback celebrates the final two matches of the 2022 Star Wars TCG World Championship with a look back at two SWTCG promotional posters from 2002. When these posters were made, the game’s first expansion, Attack of the Clones, was about to be released. However, these posters took things one step further and showcased battle scenes from A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, teasing future SWTCG sets. The A New Hope expansion wouldn’t be released until several months after, and The Empire Strikes Back set would only be released over a year later. These sets were featured in the 2022 World Championship, alongside the other 3 original Galactic Civil War era expansions. Thanks to all who participated in this tournament, and congrats to Trent McCrow, Jogach, and Dev for claiming the top 3 spots!
