The Premier Star Wars Rivals Set and expansive Character Booster Packs will be available from Funko Games soon.
Funko Games has announced the Star Wars Rivals Card Game, an all-new expandable card game experience featuring endless layers of strategy and fun within every era of the Star Wars galaxy. Arriving late spring 2023, the award-winning tabletop gaming studio will offer a Premier Set and expansive Character Booster Packs, encouraging fans to join the dark or light side of the Force, build teams and battle for control of locations in the Star Wars galaxy.
Inspired by one of the most iconic franchises in pop culture history, the Star Wars Rivals Game challenges players to choose a side and create a squadron of iconic characters in an attempt to collect the most location cards and win against their opponent. Each character from across the Star Wars galaxy has three unique action cards featuring exciting abilities, creating endless strategies when combined with other characters during their fight for the galaxy. The fully expandable game experience also offers fans never-before-seen art stylisation in miniature sculpts and card art.
“The latest collaboration with Lucasfilm for the Star Wars Rivals Game has continued to elevate Funko Games’ collectible offerings through its all-new art style, including awesome hologram variants,” said Deirdre Cross, head of Funko Games. “We’re excited to introduce fans to new immersive gameplay, allowing them to experience unforgettable Star Wars locations as they join the Force and battle it out with their favourite characters from every era.”
The Premier Set offers fans four character-themed game movers and character cards, an exclusive prism die, 14 action cards, 18 tokens and markers, and 12 location cards, which include four that are exclusive to the set. For Star Wars fans of all skill levels, the game system features fast-paced gameplay that’s easy to jump into, with exciting dice-rolling and card revealing moments.
An extension of the Premier Set, Light Side and Dark Side Character Booster Packs expand game play with each including one character-themed game mover and character card, two location cards, game die, five action cards, 16 tokens and markers. Also available in late spring 2023, Light and Dark Side Character Booster Packs can be combined for immediate play or added to Premier Sets, as they intensify gameplay and spark an epic showdown featuring characters from every era of the Star Wars galaxy.
A limited pre-release sale for all Star Wars Rivals products will begin at Star Wars Celebration, from April 7th-10th. Star Wars Rivals Premier set will be available to pre-order on Game.co.uk from April 7th and will be on general release from June 18th, in-store and online from Game.
