Frequently Asked Questions

What is Star Wars Galaxies™ Trading Card Game?
Star Wars Galaxies™ Online Trading Card Game is an online-only trading card game, set in the world of Star Wars Galaxies. This first ever online Star Wars trading card game is available exclusively to Star Wars® Galaxies players, past and present.

Playable from within Star Wars Galaxies or through the standalone client, the first release, Champions of the Force, features over 250 digital cards available in both 58-card digital starter decks and 15-card digital booster packs.

Is This Made By The Star Wars Galaxies Team?
The Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game is a joint collaboration between several different SOE studios but is centered in Denver, CO. The Development team there has a great deal of experience with Trading Card Games, both tabletop and digital. The team currently produces the EverQuest®/EverQuest II®-based Legends of Norrath™ trading card game, among others. In fact, members of the design team for Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game have experience with previous Star Wars® games including the popular Star Wars Customizable Card Game released in 1995.

How long does it take to play a game?
The Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game is designed to play between 10 and 20 minutes. The first time through it will take you longer, but as you become more familiar with your cards' abilities and the more powerful card combinations, the game-time will decrease.

Will the five booster packs per month for current paying SWG subscribers contain loot cards?
Yes, these five non-tradable booster packs are identical to packs you can purchase in the Station Store and have the same chance of containing loot cards. It is important to note that in order to qualify for the five monthly booster packs you will need to be an active, paying Star Wars Galaxies subscriber with an account in good standing.

What does non-tradable mean?
'Non-tradable' means that a booster pack, and the cards inside, are intended for your personal Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game collection only. You will not be able to trade, sell or give them to other players or accounts. All cards or packs purchased through the Station Store are fully tradable, although loot items, once redeemed in the MMO, are no longer tradable.

Will I be able to buy or sell packs in the MMO?
Trading Card Game booster packs and starters are scheduled to be sold through the Station Store only.

Will there be promotional or limited edition cards available?
Yes, we have a full slate of promotional activities planned for the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game. Check the Events Calendar on the website frequently for details.
