Dark Symmetry cards are handed out at random to each Player before selecting equipment for a mission. They are played generally during the Player's turn. Some require an action to play while others do not. Two powers are listed on each card with the top power playable by any Legion Force and the bottom power requiring the Player's Force to be the Force named within the power, i.e. "Muawijhe Baffling Call" can only be played by Muawijhe. Only one power on a card may be played by the force during the mission. Most Dark Symmetry cards only require line-of-sight with no maximum distance unless otherwise specified on the card. The Dark Symmetry card can only be played once and is then discarded. These replace the Siege of the Citadel Doomtrooper Cards.
