This is not a stand-alone deck. A Star Wars™: The Card Game Core Set is required to play.
It is a dark time for the Rebellion. Although the Death Star has been destroyed, Imperial troops have driven the Rebel forces from their hidden base and pursued them across the galaxy.
–The Empire Strikes Back
The Battle of Hoth heats up in A Dark Time, the third Force Pack™ in The Hoth Cycle for Star Wars™: The Card Game! Rebel forces prepare for evacuation, and Imperial walkers advance and open heavy fire. A Dark Time adds more objectives with the Hoth trait even as light and dark side forces prepare to clash for control of the desolate ice planet. New characters, fighters, and locations populate the battlefield and encourage strategies built around assaulting damaged objectives and winning the Force struggle.
A Dark Time draws inspiration from the early scenes of The Empire Strikes Backwhile relating the ongoing tale of the light side’s desperate stand on Hoth, but its cards also do more. They simultaneously expand the game’s exploration of Hoth and of the Star Wars universe beyond the characters, vehicles, and events captured in the classic films.
