About System Core 2019
System Core 2019 was never released as a print-and-play file or sold as a physical product. It was designed as a list of classic cards that players could assemble from their preexisting collections.
Although System Core 2019 was never printed, each card in the set list was given a quantity. This facilitated the “shufflebuilding” style of deckbuilding seen previously in the Core Set and Revised Core Set by Fantasy Flight Games, where one faction’s cards were shuffled together with the neutral cards to make a quick deck. These quantities were also used in the now-retired Core Experience format, which challenged participants to build decks as if they had only one copy of System Core 2019.
For posterity’s sake, the System Core 2019 card list is available here:
