What is a Draft Play Event for Star Wars: Unlimited?

All players in a draft event start on a level playing field. Every draft event is different, since the available cards will be random each time. Each player will receive and open 3 booster packs.

Draft play involves you drafting individual cards out of a limited pool of booster packs and then building your deck as you go. The main advantage of draft play is that everyone starts off on equal footing and must build their decks using whatever cards they get at the start of the event.  

What do you need for Star Wars: Unlimited Draft Play?

  • No need to bring your own deck, since all deckbuilding happens on the spot.
  • Knowledge on how the games work
  • English knowledge due to cards are in English

How does Draft Play work for 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 leaderexactly 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.  

In official Organized Play events, the winner of a Draft match is determined by best-of-three games in a 55-minute round.
