So I played my first game and one of the players excitedly picked the Jedi character Diala Passil. But the weapon she starts with isn't a light Sabre, and looking through the cards we couldn't find one.

Is there one in the game, or have we missed somehing?

Yes, the reward for Diala's character specific mission is a light saber. (no spoiler as the reward deck is open information.

Yeah, it's not in the Equipment deck or Diala's class deck- it's in the Reward Deck.

There are two other lightsabers in the expansions so far. (spoilers, in case some people don't want to know)
Spoiler (click to reveal)

One is in Davith's class deck, so only he can get it (but he's pretty much guaranteed to get it at some point, if the player wants it). The other, Ancient Lightsaber, comes with the Obi Wan ally pack, and it DOES go into the item deck. So, if you're wanting to make it even more likely Diala will get a saber, you might want to check out the Obi Wan pack.

As others have said, her lightsaber is in the reward pack.

However, there is Force Pike in the tier 3 items.

Ah. Fantastic. I didn't think there could possibly be NO Lightsabre. Thanks.

Not a lightsaber, but just as cool is the Electrostaff in the Grand Inquisitor's villain pack.

Yeah, I thought that was a nice touch. Honestly, I think I enjoyed the Wave 7 trio even more than what we got in The Bespin Gambit. It just seemed to have more character, to me.


But yeah, with all expansions and figure packs, your heroes will have quite a nice selection to pick from.

there's no lightsaber in the box. Just cards, cardboard tokens, and plastic miniatures.

FFG will probably release a second edition of IA with an actual working lightsaber at some point down the road, but only after you have spent a ton of money buying all the first edition stuff (which of course won't be compatible with the new "lightsaber edition") devil
