Star Wars Rebellion

Star Wars RebellionDescription from Publisher:

The Galactic Empire’s Death Star™ sets a deadly course toward Alderaan™ while Star Destroyers deploy probe droids throughout the Outer Rim. Meanwhile, a young woman risks her life to smuggle invaluable technical data to the Rebel Alliance, and a young farm boy dreams of adventure in the stars, little aware of the role he may someday play in deciding the course of the Galactic Civil War and the fates of countless lives…

The actions of a handful of men and women shape the course of the Galactic Civil War in Star Wars™: Rebellion, a board game of epic conflict between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance for two to four players.

In Star Wars™: Rebellion, you control the entire Galactic Empire or the fledgling Rebel Alliance. You must command starships, account for troop movements, and rally systems to your cause. Featuring more than 150 plastic miniatures and two game boards that account for thirty-two of the Star Wars™ galaxy’s most notable star systems, Star Wars™: Rebellion aspires to be as large and sweeping as the Star Wars™ universe itself.
