After a year’s break, the Star Wars TCG Academy is being relaunched! The new focus of the Academy will be on monthly draft events, where players get to open booster packs online and then build smaller decks with the cards they draft. Drafting events are ideal for both novice and veteran players, as they put everyone on an even footing, with players choosing cards from the packs they open on the day of the event rather than constructing their decks from a large pool of cards. Drafting events also require a smaller time commitment – as each draft will be a one day event. Each month there will be a new theme and draft event featuring packs from that month’s theme. This May, to build hype for the launch of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, the theme will be based on The Dark Times, the period between Episodes III and IV, a time of Jedi on the run, hunted by Inquisitors and other sinister agents of Empire. The Academy also features side quests which can be played any time during the month, with a range of difficulty levels for players to try out. To join the Academy, visit our discord server!

This week’s card is one of the Rebel characters from the recently released Imperial Assault mini set. Gideon offers a helpful speed and power boost, with the option to untap his allies as well.
