Attack of the Clones 15th Anniversary

15 years ago on this day, May 16th, 2002, Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones hit theaters. Less than a month earlier, on April 23rd, the first expansion for the Star Wars Trading Card Game was released. Attack of the Clones was the launching pad for the entire SWTCG, which is now at 33 expansions and counting.Attack of the Clones Star Wars Trading Card Game

Card of the Week: Tenel Ka’s Lightsaber (A)

This week’s card is from our upcoming expansion, The New Jedi Order: Star by Star. There will be 120 cards in this set, plus 10 Subordinates, and the expansion symbol is the emblem of the New Jedi Order. This set will also introduce a new keyword: Focus X. (If you roll at least one natural 5 for this unit’s attack, it gets +X power for its next attack.) Thematically, “Focus” is the inverse of “Fury.” A unit with “Fury” uses anger and hatred to get more power immediately. In contrast, a unit with “Focus” uses calm and concentration to become more powerful later. Once a unit is “Focused,” it stands a better chance of rolling a natural 5 again and again, thus remaining “Focused” for the duration of the game. Other abilities, such as Accuracy and Critical Hit, also benefit from Focus.
