Welcome to another unboxing! Today’s is a non-traditional unboxing in that it’s not a normal tabletop game that I’ll be showing. Instead, it’s a booster box (36 packs) of Star Wars Destiny from the Spirit of Rebellion set! I got the starter packs for this game recently and wanted to invest a little more so that I could try out different decks, and thought it’d be interesting to share my results.
The booster box, all wrapped and brand new!
Packs spilling out, just asking to be ripped open, mwahaha!
This is what 36 packs looks like all laid out. It was almost too epic to disturb. Almost.
Here is the contents of all the packs. I couldn’t fit all the cards laid out on my board so each pack’s cards are kinda fanned out underneath the rare/legendary (associated with the die) as they came out of the packaging.
Here are all the rares from the packs. You can find complete stats at the bottom of the post, but there were 30 rares with 3 duplicates (so 27 unique ones). I don’t know what the standard fare is for randomness, but this seemed pretty balanced to me.
The legendaries! I got 6 from 36 packs, so 1 out of every 6 packs had a legendary. I was so excited when I opened Obi-Wan! I don’t even know if he’s a good card overall but I’m gonna put him in a deck just because the character in Star Wars is awesome.
All the dice! These are larger than standard D6 dice and are very solid. It’s a joy to roll these. The images/faces are heat-treated directly onto the dice, they do not have any stickers or pieces that will come off when in use.
36 packs | 180 cards
-3 yellow, 2 blue, 1 red
-12 blue (1 duplicate), 10 red (1 duplicate), 6 yellow (1 duplicate), 2 gray
-13 red (2 duplicates), 11 blue (2 duplicates), 9 yellow (1 duplicate), 3 battlefields
-30 yellow, 28 red, 27 blue, 11 gray, 12 battlefields
As someone who intends to play solely for fun, not in the tournament/competitive scene, I think a single booster box from a set, in addition to 1 or both of the starters, gives a good sampling of the cards/dice available from the set and is more than enough to make several decks with different factions/styles. I was hoping to get some yellow cards to add to the Rey starter deck to make more of a blue/yellow hybrid deck and I definitely got some great cards to work with (including 2 yellow legendaries, although 1 is a villain-only card).
A booster box is a hefty investment (over $100 even at the best price) but if you’re looking for something a little more in-depth than just the starters (or just to be able to make full-sized decks as the starters are 10 cards short at 20 cards each) then I think it’s worth getting a booster box or 2. A single one is more than sufficient for creating a variety of decks, but one from each set is also an option if you have the funds and want to experience a little bit of the new stuff they add with each new set.
I’m looking forward to building decks and then getting this to the table!

[…] A Solitary Unboxing – Star Wars Destiny: Spirit of Rebellion Booster Box @ Open Seat Gaming – I keep swithering about Star Wars Destiny, as although it looks cool, I just don’t have anyone else in the area who would be interested in playing it. With that in mind, I’ll probably steer clear of it just now. I also have concerns about the longevity of the game, given the lack of stock that FFG seem to put out. This tends to be a bit of warning sign for this sort of game. This article is great, as it details an unboxing of a booster box, gives a good idea about what you can expect and does so with lots of great pictures! […]
