1. CYCLES IN STAR WARS DESTINY:
Written by CLAUS STAAL
Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) have sorted their releases into so-called "CYCLES" (various sets that have been bundled together according to their release date) in order to determine which sets are up for rotation and when (read more about rotation and formats in Star Wars Destiny).
Any CYCLE consists as a minimum of 3 full expansion sets (found in Booster Displays) and 2 Starter Sets. Some CYCLES might consist of additional products, i.e. the Legacies Cycle also has a Two-Player Starter Set and a Draft Kit in addition to the expansions and regular Starter Sets.
2. AWAKENINGS CYCLE:
The FIRST cycle of cards that were released is called the "Awakenings Cycle" (from the name of the first expansion in the set: Awakenings). The set can be recognized by all the product sealing being predominantly BLACK with WHITE writing. The set consists of:
1. Awakenings Expansion Set
2. Spirit of Rebellion Expansion Set.
3. Empire at War Expansion Set.
4. Kylo Ren Starter Set.
5. Rey Starter Set.
3. LEGACIES CYCLE:
