Legendary Star Wars

Page history last edited by 2πr 2 years, 8 months ago Saved with comment

The popular card game Marvel Legendary has been converted by fans to the Star Wars universe, and long time Epic Duelser Rich Pizor has contributed a LOT of stuff to it. All of these links are off-site.


Please note that this is a fairly massive project. The base game by itself is over 420 cards, and with all expansions printed you'll have over 1,200 cards.


It should be noted that it was assumed this would be printed to paper and sleeved since the project is so massive. As such there is no default cardback. A few people have contributed designs for a card back, which can be found in the main BGG thread for the project here.


If you want to try the game before committing to this build, there's a Tabletop Simulator mod available here.


The Base Game


The base game is distributed in 2 formats. A 47 page PDF file of all the cards for the base set can be found here. If you prefer, a Dropbox exists that has master files for each individual file so that you can send them to a printing service, though it has proved problematic to find one that will handle the images due to trademark laws. The Dropbox can be found here.

You'll also need a playmat. A JPEG that can be sent to a print service or tiled for printing at home can be found here. Note that this should be printed at 150 DPI.


If you aren't familiar with the Marvel Legendary rules, a rulebook that covers the basic mechanics and the specific conversions for Star Wars can be found here.


An Imgur gallery of Rich's personal build is available here.





Please note that there are no with-bleed individual template files for any expansion material.


The base game was the work of one person. Subsequently a few other individuals contributed some expansion material. The best of these can be found in a PDF here. The centerpiece of this is a "large-box" expansion based on the Battle of Hoth, but there are also a few other individual heroes, masterminds, and villain groups.


Individual card images exist in the main BGG thread for heroes, villain groups, henchmen, and bystandards based on the prequel movies. The entry in the thread can be found here. These would still require layout of some kind in order to print.


The rest of these were all designed by Rich Pizor.


A collection of 36 special bystanders (and 9 standard Bystanders with Jessica Rabbit fan art, just for fun) is available here.


 A collection of alternate-art Bystanders is available here. These serve no mechanical game function, just cosmetically represent different Star Wars races into the mix.


In addition to the Schemes familiar to the Legendary engine, the Star Wars set introduces the concept of Operations, which add an additional task that must be completed to achieve victory. A collection of additional Schemes and Operations is available here, along with a few additional Special Bystanders.


Locations are a new class of card, entirely a fan creation, that add additional global rules to spaces in the galaxy (the Star Wars version of the city from Marvel Legendary). The 25 Locations, along with 2 cards summarizing instructions for their use, are available here.


A "large box" expansion set based on the Rebels animated series is available here. Notable gameplay addition: Support cards, an implementation of the "Mediocre Heroes" concept from the Big Trouble in Little China edition of Legendary.


A "large box" expansion adding more female characters to the game is available here. Notable gameplay addition: Special Sidekicks, in the form of Ewoks.


A "large box" expansion adding Star Wars Legends material is available here.


A "large box" expansion based on The Mandalorian is available here.


NEW: A "large box" expansion based on The Bad Batch is available here.

WOW! Did not see that coming! Have never heared of that game but am very excited to take a look. I definately love that the base set is core characters from the major movies and you even have a Legends expansion. This makes it so much more attractive to me than all the stuff that is released in retail these days. I am sure I will have lots of questions, once I start to read into everything but for now THANK YOU for sharing that material/game!

1st off I have no familarity with the Marvel game: Is the Star Wars conversion you share enough to play the game or do I need a rule book of the original game?
The link to playmat only reffers to a Rebel Alliance mat but in the pdf there is an Empire mat as well, where can I get that?
The cards I looked through so far don't look like they have any card backs. Am I mistaken, if so what are the card backs or where can I find ithem?

Those are my first questions, to get started :)

This post contains links to everything you need to get started. The rulebook linked in this post is not exhaustive but will get you started and answer most of your questions.

What is your suggestion how I should start? The files as I understand it are not ready to print and play. Correct? How do I have to arrange the files and print everything so I get at least the base set to play?

Every single PDF that is linked here is ready to print and play. The only thing that is not ready to print and play is the Episode 1-3 stuff.

I would recommend starting with the base set and then adding on as you see fit.

Also - I would very much recommend printing the Schemes & Operations expansion, even if you only just do the base set. It only adds 3 pages to your print job, but it nearly exponentially multiplies the replayability of the set.

Okay, sounds cool.

Marvel Legendary is a fantastic game, fantastic enough to be the only game you and your group play for months. I didn't know Rich put time into making a SW version but I'll check it out, maybe even play it if my group ever meets again.

I've been tinkering with it off and on for roughly the past year. I will warn you, it's a pretty big build - there's over 400 cards in just the base game, and there's nearly 1300 if you include all the expansion material.
