The main attraction for this game are the Booster Packs! In each of these packs, you will find exactly 16 cards, which consist of a mix of Common cards, Uncommon cards, at least one Rare or Legendary card, a leader, a base, and a foil card. There’s also a small chance of finding a special variant of a card in a pack.
Each booster pack for this game contains exactly
16 cards. Among those 16, one is guaranteed to be a leader card, and another is guaranteed to be a base (with an Experience or Shield token on the other side of it). That leaves 14 cards remaining that are pulled from the pool of “standard” (non-leader, non-base, non-token) cards.
Outside of the cards that are exclusive to starter decks, the cards in this game are divided into four rarities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Legendary. In each booster pack, you will find
9 Common cards, 3 Uncommon cards, and 1 Rare or Legendary card. You may notice that only adds up to 13; add the leader and base card, and you’ve got 15. So, what is the last card in the pack?
The final card in a pack is a
foil card, which will be a foil version of any card in the set (that can appear in booster packs). This foil card can be of any rarity, which means you could luck into a second Rare or Legendary card!
However, foil cards are not the only variants that can appear in packs. There is also a small chance that any of the cards in the pack are a “Hyperspace” variant, which gives them a special alternate frame that shows off more of the artwork!
You may be curious why we designed the booster packs for this game in this way, and the answer is quite simple: to support draft and sealed play! The deckbuilding rules for this game make it so that, as long as you have a leader and base, you can include any cards you want in your deck. Thus, by ensuring that every pack has a leader and a base, a store won’t need anything other than booster packs to run a draft or sealed event! We’ve said before that we integrated Organized Play into this game’s DNA from the very beginning, and we meant it! Also, because of the Hyperspace and Showcase variants, we’ve made sure that every card in a pack has the potential to be something exciting, even if you aren’t participating in tournaments.
So, now you know the ins and outs of Star Wars: Unlimited booster packs. We hope you’re as excited as we are for when the game officially releases in the first half of 2024!
