Boosting Ahead of Release

It’s time to talk about Star Wars™: Unlimited booster packs!

While many of you are eager to jump into this game of unlimited possibilities, there may be a few of you who are wondering what it is you will find when you crack open a pack. Well, that’s exactly what we’re taking a look at today! So, without further ado, let’s examine the contents of a Star Wars: Unlimited booster pack and the relative rarities of the cards within.


Each booster pack for this game contains exactly 16 cards. Among those 16, one is guaranteed to be a leader card, and another is guaranteed to be a base (with an Experience or Shield token on the other side of it). That leaves 14 cards remaining that are pulled from the pool of “standard” (non-leader, non-base, non-token) cards.

Outside of the cards that are exclusive to starter decks, the cards in this game are divided into four rarities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Legendary. In each booster pack, you will find 9 Common cards, 3 Uncommon cards, and 1 Rare or Legendary card. You may notice that only adds up to 13; add the leader and base card, and you’ve got 15. So, what is the last card in the pack?

The final card in a pack is a foil card, which will be a foil version of any card in the set (that can appear in booster packs). This foil card can be of any rarity, which means you could luck into a second Rare or Legendary card!

However, foil cards are not the only variants that can appear in packs. There is also a small chance that any of the cards in the pack are a “Hyperspace” variant, which gives them a special alternate frame that shows off more of the artwork!

Any card in a pack can be a Hyperspace variant, including leaders and bases. Even the foil card can be a Hyperspace variant! Keep in mind, the difference between a Hyperspace variant and the normal version of a card is purely aesthetic, so be sure to seek them out for your favorite cards.

There’s also an even rarer variant exclusive to leader cards: the “Showcase” variant, which features alternate art, a unique frame, and special foil treatment. Count yourself lucky if you manage to pull one of these elusive gems; they are few and far between!

If you’re wondering about the exact odds of finding the rarer cards in a pack—including Legendary cards, Hyperspace variants, and Showcase variants—just take a look at the images below. Please keep in mind that these odds assume perfect distribution, and the actual odds may vary slightly once the game has been released.

Packs with Purpose

You may be curious why we designed the booster packs for this game in this way, and the answer is quite simple: to support draft and sealed play! The deckbuilding rules for this game make it so that, as long as you have a leader and base, you can include any cards you want in your deck. Thus, by ensuring that every pack has a leader and a base, a store won’t need anything other than booster packs to run a draft or sealed event! We’ve said before that we integrated Organized Play into this game’s DNA from the very beginning, and we meant it! Also, because of the Hyperspace and Showcase variants, we’ve made sure that every card in a pack has the potential to be something exciting, even if you aren’t participating in tournaments.

So, now you know the ins and outs of Star Wars: Unlimited booster packs. We hope you’re as excited as we are for when the game officially releases in the first half of 2024!
