West End Games - US - RPG Gaming Cards (1990s)


If, when you think of Star Wars game cards, you think of CCG cards by Decipher or Wizards of the Coast, well, I can hardly blame you. There is another group of Star Wars cards used for games however, the cards packaged with West End Games Role Playing sets. Primarily character and ship cards, these are used as part of the game play for Star Wars Role Playing. While these aren't traditional Star Wars trading cards, or even traditional gaming cards, they are definitely part of the Star Wars card universe and deserve a place here. Cards are packaged with gaming sets (boxed), or in individual game books. On the Checklist below, I have listed the book (or gaming pack) that cards come in, and then listed out the cards found in that book. Feel free to let me know if I am missing any from the list. As it is hopelessly out-of-date, I am bound to be missing a number of cards.

Each card has a picture front. The back of each card has the name of the character, capability or ship, and a description of scoring options for game play. These cards have some really terrific images of ships, especially when compared to the Topps Vehicles set. Some really terrific character images as well. Both photo and drawn images are used. Images are larger than those found on Decipher CCG cards, but overall, card quality is much lower. Cards are printed on sheets (8 to a sheet) and intended to be punched out. This is a long page. Be prepared to scroll.
