  • Very Significant: Completely reworked the way automations work functionally. Reacts and Interrupts no longer trigger automatically during phase changes or specific triggers, rather, cards which have a relevant react/interrupt will now simply highlight themselves at the appropriate moment, much like events, at which point you can simply double-click on them to signify you're using their effect. While they are highlighted, your opponent also has the chance to play interrupts which will cancel their effects, such as "Over My Dead Body". Cards which have normal actions, will highlight after your double clicked them and paid their cost, at which point your opponent has a chance to interrupt and afterward you must double click them again to release their effect. The highlight phase will also give you an opportunity to target the appropriate cards if you need to. Reacts/Interrupts available for use will only remain active for one phase. As soon as someone pressed [ctrl]+[Enter], all unused triggers will disappear. Forced Reacts/Interrupts will not disappear until you use them. To signify you don't want to use a react, either ignore it until the phase changes, or use the built-in action "Ignore Card Trigger" [Ctrl]+[Z] on the card. Effects which are built-in to the cards, such as cost-reductions, shielding and other things which cannot be interrupted, will work automatically as before. You don't need to trigger them manually.
  • Significant: Scripted almost all Edge of Darkness cards
    • Cards not scripted:
      • Wookie Life Debt (Just drag the damage tokens afterwards manually)
      • Chewbacca
      • Blockade Runner
      • Bothan Spy
      • Cloud City Wing Guard/Chewbaca Bowcaster strike "outside of combat" (Just use the manual "Strike" ability in the card's context menu.)
      • Sleuth Scout
      • Undercover Operative
      • Force Precognition
      • Opening Moves (Just attack the appropriate objective)

      • Bib Fortuna
      • Krayt Dragon (Just don't play any enhancements on it)

      • Smuggling Compartment - Just double click the enhancement to draw a card and notify why)
      • Millennium Falcon - Target the unit in your hand and then use the Falcon's ability
      • Assassin Droid (Just use its ability to remove a focus)
      • Tractor Beam (Does not check the printed costs)
      • Bossk (Drawing the cards is not automated)
      • Trandoshan Hunter (Just Target the non-participating Wookie)
  • Added HARDCORE mode. Unleash it from the Game Menu. Hardcore mode is built with the people who want a close experience to the real tabletop, without sacrificing all automations. During HARDCORE mode, your cards will not highlight when their trigger is reached and will not announce it on the chat either. You will need to double click on a card during the appropriate time window at which point it will highlight and announce that your are attempting to use it, to give your opponent a chance to play interrupts. HARDCORE mode only affects your cards. If your opponent is not using it, then their own triggers will be automatically highlighted as usual. This will not affect innate effects which cannot be interrupted, such as Shielding or Cost Reductions. These will work automatically as usual. Forced effects will also always be highlighted to prevent illegal plays. In other words, HARDCORE mode only affects Reacts and Interrupts.
  • Lots of added automations for cards which didn't have them before, such as the General's Imperative
  • Added automation for cards which require you to target cards from your hand, such as Kuat Reinforcements or Jabba the Hut. To use those, just target the appropriate number of cards from your hand and "Use Ability" ''Ctrl''+''Q''
  • Changed shortcut for Activating a card's ability to [Ctrl]+[Q]
  • Added shortcut for Ignoring a card's trigger to [Ctrl]+[Z]

  • Fixed Rogue Squadron Mobilization triggering

    • Interrupts which cancel the effects of events, like C-3PO new require a "ready" event as a target. A "ready event" is an event with a green highlight which has been paid for (or has 0 cost). When that happens, the event will not have any effects when activated by your opponent.
    • Once all players had a chance to play interrupts to events, the controller of each ready event can now double-click on it to have it take effect

  • Leia's Ability should now be working
  • Rebel Sympathizer's ability is automated
  • Trooper Assault should work now.
  • Conceding the game shouldn't give an error anymore
  • Various robustness changes.


Card automations are now here! A very large percentage of the available cards will now trigger their effects as soon as they hit the table or as soon their triggers are reached (after specific phases, after striking etc). Cards which have their own abilities are also automated, and you can make them work by simply double-clicking on them and having the target of their effect targeted (if one is needed)

So except that, the following have also been done:

  • Added capturing mechanic. Many automations will use it automatically, but you can also call it manually.
    • To capture a card from the table, opponents hand or opponent's deck simply target their card and press Ctrl+C on the table. Yes you can target a card in a player's hand or deck normally (shift+click)
  • Added a rescuing mechanic. When an objective with captured cards is destroyed, captured cards in it will be returned to their owner's hands.
    • If you want to manually rescue cards, the controller of the card needs to simply use the "Manual Actions > Rescue card" option
    • IMPORTANT: Due to the attachment mechanics of capturing cards, You should not move them away from their objective manually. Use the rescue mechanic
    • If for some reason the rescue mechanic does not work or cannot be used, and you want to clear the cards that are supposedly captured in an objective, use the "Clear of captured variables" option under "Manual Actions".
  • During setup, starting objectives are now placed face down. This allows players to perform their mulligans before using the abilities of those objectives
    • Once both players have setup their three starting objectives, they just need to double-click on them to reveal them.
  • Smugglers & Scouts resources should now be counted correctly.
  • Unopposed Bonus is now only applied if the attacker has units left in battle
  • Mulligan will now only ever provide 6 cards


  • Fixed bug where finishing an unopposed engagement would assign 2 damage
  • Thwarting an objective will now ask for confirmation to avoid mistakes
  • Renamed the card discard function to point out that it also thwarts objectives.
  • Balance of the Force will now spawn on the light side to avoid confusion


New version improves engagement by separating it into steps (i.e. phases) as well. This means that you can easily communicate who's turn it is to declare participants or when you're ready to start playing edge cards and so on.

The steps work as always, once you're in an engagement, simple press Ctrl+Enter to move to the next step. The game is also smart enough to auto-announce a phase when you take an action that belongs to it (For example if you play an edge card, the game will announce the "Edge Battle" step).

This also includes some extra automation to make things faster and more robust. Reaching the "Reward Unopposed" step will automatically end the engagement, and reaching the strikes step will make sure the edge battle is resolved.

  • Fixed various bugs during Edge calculations, such as cards not being revealed
  • Now unopposed attacker wins the edge struggle automatically
  • Fate cards now have a different highlight when revealed. Once they've been used, they switch to the normal silver highlight for the calculation
  • You can now clear participants form the battle or remove units from the force. Normally the game does not allow you, but this is in case you've done a mistake
  • Added an option to grab the Edge manually, if for some reason the edge calculation was incorrect


  • Finishing the engagement now clears the opponent's edge cards as well
  • Tactic:1 strikes now focus the target unit
  • Spread out the objectives a bit
  • Free units/enhancements now are autoplaced.
  • Can now manually shuffle the objective deck


First working version for the public. It has basic gameplay functionality but not card scripting (i.e. individual card effects are not automated)

However the basic things you need to do quickly and effortlessly should be possible.
