Star Wars Unlimited Draft

Star Wars Unlimited TCG: Spark of Rebellion released March 8, 2024.

Come play in a booster draft, March 12, at 6pm!

Brush up on the rules:
How to Draft in Star Wars: Unlimited:

First, players sit around a single table. Each player opens three booster packs and takes out the leader cards, keeping the remaining cards of each pack in their separate stacks without looking at them.  

Each player chooses one of their three leaders to keep and passes the other two to the right. Then, each player chooses one of the two leaders that was just passed to them and passes the other to the right. After this point, each player should have three leader cards; one that they started with, and two that were passed to them by other players.

Next, each player chooses one of the booster packs that they opened. The common base/token card from that pack is placed in a pile at the center of the table, and then each player chooses one card to keep from the pack before passing the other cards to the player on their left. They then draft their next card from the cards they received from the player on their right.  

This continues until all cards from the first booster pack have been drafted. Then, the process repeats for the second booster pack, except this time players pass cards to the right.  

After all the cards from the second booster pack have been drafted, the process is repeated one more time with the third pack, once again passing cards to the left.

At the end of this process, each player should have drafted 45 cards (three leaders and 42 other cards). Players may now make adjustments to their decks, using the following rules:

Your deck must consist of exactly one leader, exactly one base, and a minimum 30-card draw deck. Each player can choose any of the common bases from the set, or they can use a rare base that they drafted from the packs.

Your draw deck can include any number of copies of the same card.  

Typically, the winner of a draft play match is determined by best-of-three games. Each game should take an average of 20 minutes to complete.  

One Piece OP-06 Wings of the Captain

We are able to run prereleases March 10 and March 13. Due to product limitations from Bandai, our events have already filled up. Pre-payment is required to save a spot. Again, Bandai capped our attendance at 16 players per event. I would much rather run a bigger event and accept all players.

Also, because of the lack of product, I will be unable to offer any more booster boxes for sale at this time.
