“The Emperor has made a critical error and the time for our attack has come.”
Fantasy Flight Games today released their new tabletop Star Wars themed game, Star Wars: Rebellion. The game up to four people controlling either The Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance, and engaging in a series of conflicts that will determine the fate of the galaxy.
About the Game:
“In Star Wars: Rebellion, you and up to three friends seize control of the entire Galactic Empire and the fledgling Rebel Alliance, only to engage in an epic series of conflicts that will ultimately determine the fate of the galaxy.
At the center of these struggles, you have a tense game of cat-and-mouse as the Empire searches for the location of the Rebellion’s hidden base, intending to deploy there in force and end the Rebellion with one decisive battle. The Rebellion, meanwhile, must deflect the Empire’s attention and fleet movements away from its hidden base in order to buy time. It must then use this time to strike against the Empire through covert missions and guerilla warfare; each of its successes exposes the Empire’s weaknesses and moves the galaxy one step closer to open revolt.
Deeply inspired by the classic trilogy, these asymmetrical struggles burst with Star Wars flavor at every turn. You can enjoy massive fleet battles. AT-AT Walkers can march against Rebel emplacements. Mon Mothma may convince the galaxy’s citizens to join the Rebel Alliance; Darth Vader may cow them into quiet submission. As you wage your Galactic Civil War, you will battle over planetary systems, compete for their resources, and make desperate runs at secret missions that can turn the game on its head.”
This game looks fantastic, and we here at The Nerd Stash can’t wait to get our hands on it. Star Wars: Rebellion is now available at United States retailers. For more information be sure to check out the source of this news, Fantasy Flight Games’ official website.
