Single-digit cards Edit
Until the FFG edition, attack cards less than were only printed with single digits; effects that referenced a card's tens digit all stated that the tens digit of a single-digit card was treated as 0 for the purposes of these effects. FFG game designer Kevin Wilson stated that the decision to use double-digit numbers on all attack cards in this edition was made both for this purpose and because double-digit numbers have more of a sci-fi feel to them.
