Fantasy Flight Games has announced plans for a fourth quarter release of Balance of the Force, its second deluxe expansion set for Star Wars: The Card Game. The expansion introduces two multiplayer formats and new objective sets for all six of the game’s affiliations.
The expansion’s new two-versus-two format allows players to team up against a pair of opponents, and there is also a format for as many as three players (light or dark side) to team up against a single threat (the challenge deck scenarios). The six new objective sets enable use of new mechanics and characters, and their effects will work for both head-to-head play as well as in the new multiplayer formats.
Balance of the Force contains 154 new cards including: 1 dark side challenge deck (Jerjerrod’s Task), 1 light side challenge deck (The Hunt for Skywalker), 6 new objective sets, 1 multiplayer Death Star dial, and new rules. No MSRP has been announced.
Star Wars: The Card Game has consistently ranked on ICV2’s Bestselling Top Ten Card Game Lists (see "Top 10 Card/Dice Games--Spring 2013" and "Top 10 Card/Building Games--Fall 2012").
