Star Wars: The Card GameBetween the Shadows (Available Now)

Within the galaxy’s darkest shadows live those beings who seek to avoid watchful eyes…

Between the Shadows is the third deluxe expansion for Star Wars: The Card Game. Featuring twenty-six new objective sets (two copies each of twelve objective sets, and one copy each of two “Limit 1 per objective deck” sets), Between the Shadows focuses on the game’s Jedi and Scum and Villainy affiliations. Members of the Scum and Villainy affiliation use the shadows to pursue illicit operations and illegal dealings, while the Jedi stay hidden to escape the persecution of the Empire.

Between the Shadows features a host of iconic characters and starships from the Star Wars universe, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, and the Virago. Whether you train in the Force on the planet Dagobah, or oversee the rise of the Black Sun crime syndicate, you’ll find plenty of cards to expand your decks in Between the Shadows!

Star Wars: Imperial AssaultImperial Assault Dice Pack (January 29)

While you’re playing Star Wars: Imperial Assault it’s crucial to concentrate your attention on the mission at hand. Whether you’re leading an elite strike team of Rebel operatives deep into an Imperial base, or concentrating fire on your opponents with a team of stormtroopers, one small mistake could alter the fate of the galaxy.

Focus completely on your Imperial Assault missions with the Imperial Assault Dice Pack! This Imperial Assault accessory comes with eleven custom combat dice, identical to the dice found in the Imperial Assault Core Set, allowing you to quickly navigate the most demanding missions, even while laser fire erupts all around you.

Star Wars: Edge of the Empire — Lords of Nal Hutta (January 29)

Escape the oppressive rule of the Empire and engage in devious schemes with the galaxy’s slimiest and most notorious gangsters: the Hutts!

No matter your vice — gambling, luxury, spice, beauty, or other — whatever you pleasure, you can find it in abundance in Hutt Space, and you can find it in Lords of Nal
Hutta, the Hutt Space sourcebook for the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Roleplaying Game. Smugglers, freelancers and mercenaries flock to the galaxy’s many Hutt-controlled hives of scum and villainy to fulfill their depraved desires or make a quick profit. Opportunity is abundant, but it comes at a perilously steep price. Anyone who flies Hutt Space lanes and hauls their questionable cargo must continuously ask themselves how far they’re willing to go in the name of cold, hard credits.

In its 144 pages, Lords of Nal Hutta offers Game Masters all the information they need to bring the most corrupt and lawless stretch of the galaxy to life. The book places everything you need to base a campaign in this infamous region at your fingertips, including information on over a dozen planets and their history, people and culture, points of interest and plot hooks, as well as local creatures and challenges. All Star Wars, all the time.
