What a cool idea for a thread! I love that the community has already started to develop its own jargon.
Incidentally, I'm curious about the etymology of 'chud.' Where does it come from?
Also, I've seen unit damage referred to as 'pewpews,' which I think is kinda cute.

Updated! Great job! Any more?

Saying "pilot" before a main's name indicates it is the pilot keyword version. I.e. pilot Han indicates the bucket of bolts pod.
Also, "pod" itself is not a game term and should be included.

This can get confusion because I will not fight you Luke is also endor traited on objective.
as to the ig88, we also call them iggy , but iggy prime, iggy b, etc
Never thought about that

If I may be so bold as to make a recommendation toward a current "Luke glossary" and "Vader glossary"
Stupid Vader (just kidding, I'd actually recommend Hoth Vader)

Very honored to be sticky!
You guys are making this awesome!

You're still missing quite a few that have already been suggested... most importantly Friendship Is Magic.
I also agree with Greedo that it should fatbar instead of fat ack. Also not sure why that one is bigger font than the rest? That kind of thing get to me, haha.

LS - Light Side
DS - Dark Side -or- Death Star [dial]
Superfriends - A deck-style where any combination of LS Main OT characters (Luke, Leia, Han, Lando, Chewie, R2, 3PO, Obi-Wan and Yoda) are put together, spanning different affilations.
We always call Shifty Lookout "Sh*tty Lookout" (or just "sh*tties") ... especially when Against all Odds is on the table
Also, I don't think it's really actively used but the effect of Sleuth Scout and Blokkade Runner should be called "Sleuthing".
And for the definition of "Bounce", I think you should add that the unit is removed back to the owner's hand (to distinguish from simple destruction/wipe).

The result of sitting thinking by myself on my 40 min commute:
Alpha Strike: Throwing everything you have with the right kind of damage (bombs for objectives; guns for units) at a target in the hope of dealing enough damage to win the game or stop an attack.
Baiting: Attacking a target that will obviously survive the attack with a (usually small or apparently weak) unit while you still have ready units left behind. Used to force the opponent to either block and reduce their defense, or risk getting hit by an edge-enabled tactics or some other negative effect (like Seeds of Decay or Secret Objective)
Black/White Guns/Bombs/Focus: Edge-independent / Edge-dependent Unit/Objective/Tactics combat icons
Buffing (a unit or objective): Increasing a unit's damage capacity (either through effects of with shields)
Going all-in: Throwing all your cards in the edge battle
Milling (a deck): using card effects to discard cards from the command deck without them ever being drawn.
Swarm: A large amount of units, typically with a common trait, that have been brought into play quickly (either with loads of resources, through cost reducers or because they are so cheap) that can enter engagements in such large numbers they will overwhelm your opponent.
The Tarkin Ruling: Originally the (highly polarising) ruling that stated that an enhancement without any play text can not be legally be attached to another card and will have to be discarded (FAQ 2.19). Used as a prediction that something will not be well-received: "It will be the Tarking Ruling all over again".
Weenie: A unit with 1 Damage Capacity. Usually cheap (1 or 0 resources; but not always ... we're looking at you Anzati Elite) cannon-fodder but some can have interesting effects.

"Tom" or "Melucci" - General reference to the Badge of Honor pod which contains a card designed by 2015 World's Champion Tom Melucci.
"Ricky" - Reference to Lowhrick from the Wookie's Journey pod (may also refer to the pod as a whole)
