Hi everyone,

I am stealing an idea which I thought could be fun, and maybe even helpful.

A long time ago I used to play Star Wars: CCG, made by Decipher.

Someone came up with an unofficial glossary, which was kept on a message board.

It included all abbreviations and terms commonly used by players, and was constantly updated.

I figured I would start one, and hopefully players will contribute their own terms.

I encourage everyone to add to this list-- and HAVE FUN!

It's heresy for a SWLCG glossary to not include a definition of "main".

I feel like One-Shot is more indicative of an objective being taking out by 1 unit from full health to zero.

Or One-Shotting the Trench which is to destroy the Trench Run in one all out attack.


Jedi Leia - Leia from Ties of Blood

Top Deck - getting the exact cards you need to win or save the game.

Cassian Chud - the Rebel Saboteurs from Cassian's set which cancel everything.

IG-88 is also frequently referred to as Iggy-Prime.

 

I usually see Defense of Yavin 4 abbreviated at DoY4 rather than DOYF.

 

And DTF is also used for Deploy the Fleet in addition to Draw Their Fire.

Yeah, doesn't he have a name for the Renegade Squadron Operative as well? I think he said that Shad came up with it... Can't remember what it is.

Navy Vader only ever refers to the pilot version
