Allies of Necessity Come to Star Wars TCG

July 10, 2017

Allies of Necessity, the first Force Pack in the Alliances cycle for Star Wars: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games

Chief among the new cards it introduces are its ten new affiliation cards. And just as was the case after the Death Star first unleashed its superlaser upon Jedha City, the galaxy will never again be the same. These affiliation cards don’t just encourage the exploration of new deck archetypes; they reward your exploration with immeasurable power.

While the Force Pack’s eight new objective sets (two copies each of four different sets) each suggest different ways you might explore alliances between your side’s affiliations, these affiliation cards actually mandate those alliances. Then they offer you extra card draw, extra resources, or extra actions.

Star Wars TCG finds need of Allies of Necessity

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Allies of Necessity, the first Force Pack in the Alliances cycle for Star Wars™: The Card Game!

If anything defines the Star Wars saga more than the lightsaber duels, blaster firefights, and epic space battles, it’s the friendships that emerge out of hardship and necessity. Whether it’s Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi looking for a smuggler to take them offworld or ex-convict Jyn Erso forced to work with a ragtag group of Rebels, outcasts, and Imperial defectors, these alliances can determine the fate of the entire galaxy. 

Within the new Alliances cycle, you gain plenty of incentives to bring multiple affiliations together. While multi-affiliation decks have always been a possibility in Star Wars: The Card Game, Allies of Necessity offers more tools to help you than ever before—starting with new affiliation cards, which offer new deckbuilding requirements and special abilities. What’s more, you’ll find iconic characters from Rogue One, Star Wars Rebels, and the Darth Vader comics throughout the cycle: in fact, this first Force Pack includes Doctor Aphra, Director Krennic, Captain Cassian Andor, and Jyn Erso. 

With eight new objective sets (two copies each of four distinct sets), and twelve brand-new affiliation cards (two for each affiliation), Allies of Necessity promises to change your games like never before!
