Fantasy Flight Games will release two new starters and a new booster for its Star Wars: Destiny card and dice game in Q1 2019.
A new block of sets launches with Convergence, and the 180-card booster introduces new themes and a new card type. Character subtypes including Jedi, trooper, and leader will be an important focus; and more emphasis will be placed on plots and downgrades to hinder foes. The mirror opposite of upgrades, downgrades attach to opponent characters and have negative effects on them, like health reduction, a bounty on their heads, or a mental attack with Force Abilities. The set includes new versions of Emperor Palpatine, Jabba the Hutt, Captain Phasma, and Mace Windu. MSRP is $2.99/pack.
The Obi-Wan Kenobi Starter Set lets players use General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Duchess Satine Kryze to fight the Separatist Army during the Clone Wars. It includes 24 cards and 9 dice. MSRP is $14.95.
The General Grievous Starter Set focuses on the Clone Wars from the perspective of General Grievous and two Commando Droids as they battle the Old Republic. It includes 24 cards and 9 dice. MSRP is $14.95.
Awesome booster art to boot!

Elite Prize Card – 2 copies of the alternate art card “Kylo Ren”. Also in Aurebesh, you can show your opponents the Dark Side with this powerful character card!
Elite Prize Item – 2 sets of 5 acrylic Resource Tokens. Resources are an incredibly important part of the game and you can show your success with these tokens!
Even our pal Kylo is super excited!
It’s really sweet that Fatasy Flight games is recognizing the potential of this game and seem to be doing all the right things to make it a big hit. Also, as per their site – the Prize kits get updated every quarter which roughly matches with the release of each new set (apparently 3 sets release/year).
Additionally, if you’re in search for inspiration, you can go over and check some submitted Star Wars: Destiny lists posted here. Since the game is fairly new, they may not be optimal but a lot of things they have going on a re rather sweet and can give you a dose of inspiration for a future deck/army.
