The Star Wars Trading Card Game is a collectible card game that is based on the hugely popular epic space film series created by George Lucas. The card game was produced by Wizards of the Coast and was first released for retail in 2002. The aim of the Star Wars TCG is to be in control of the in-game arenas. To win the game, a player must be able to take control of at least two of the three in-game arenas. The collectible card game, specifically made for the fans of the film franchise, has several types of cards. These cards are categorised into Space, Character, Ground, Units, Mission, Battle, Location and Equipment. The in-game arenas are Character, Ground and Space. Units known from the film series are used in the card game, such as starfighters, armies and Star Destroyers. The characters such as Darth Vader, Padmeâ Amidala, Anakin Skywalker, Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker are also featured in this Star Wars card game. After its launch in April 2002, Wizards of Coast has also created other TCG sets inspired from the film series. The other TCG sets include titles such as Sith Rising, A New Hope, Battle of Yavin, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and Revenge of the Sith.
