I have not bought into any of the other Wizkids miniatures games and don't even know if the figures ever have interchangeable cards like this game...anyway, the question:

Do you think that there is ever a possibility of buying packages of the upgrade cards including captains, crew cards, and ship upgrades so that these can be obtained separately from the ship miniatures? I can see wanting a lot of card types after I'm pretty satisfied with the miniatures collection. I realize this might be a long shot since the package of ship + cards helps to move the ships...here is to the hope.

I haven't seen Star Wars: X-wing get into this sort of card-only expansion yet. However, if you were just playing with friends for fun you could certainly print out & proxy cards. Those wouldn't be allowed in official tournaments, but in most other contexts it would be fine.

This won't happen. I can't think of any manufacturer of this type who would do that or that it would be financially viable.

For your own private games, one copy is enough no matter how many you use.

I asked wizkids about this and got a response the same day:

"As for your question, official rules require that players have physical copies of all cards/game components that are part of their fleet build. However, it is up to the store/venue running the event if they would allow proxies such as printed copies for any non-unique card elements. Please speak with the judge/store owner running the event at your local venue."

Basically, they acknowledge that you don't want to spend £12 on 2 cards from a box just to have an extra tractor beam or whatever. Most TOs are fairly cool about this sort of thing so I'd just ask at whatever event you're going to.

You can always buy individual ships or captian's cards.

You could always but the ship expansions and sell off the ship/cards that you didn't want out of them. Stick a generic 1 captain on there and post it on Ebay, I'm sure people are interested.
