Apparently no longer limited by its license to roleplaying and miniatures, Fantasy Flight Games has revealed plans for its first straight-up Star Wars board game. Star Wars: Rebellion, set during the period of the original movie trilogy, incorporates both military and political conflict. It also embraces asymmetrical gameplay. The Imperial player benefits from a stronger military with a goal of locating and rooting out rebel forces. The Rebel player needs to focus on more strategic military targets while building public support for full-scale revolt.
Star Wars: Rebellion is scheduled for release in the first quarter of next year at a retail price of $100. The game is supposed to accommodate 2-4 players and take 3-4 hours.
I’m always up for a new Star Wars game. Some strategy elements so that’s good. Nice looking board. $100!!! No thanks. There aren’t even any plastic miniatures.
Lol – You must have missed the 170 minis that will be included in the game, including a 9cm super star destroyer, star destroyers, x-wings, death star, etc.
I did miss them. They’re not mentioned in the description and I didn’t see them in the picture originally. If you zoom into the picture and look closely you can see some. With that many minis and the lower price I’ve seen elsewhere, I’m back to being interested.
