A game of legendary Star Wars adventure and tactical miniatures combat
It may be Descent 2nd Edition reskinned with a few tweaks, but who can deny the appeal of Imperial vs Rebel battles done in the high quality Fantasy Flight Games style? I must admit my personal vision of Star Wars tactical battles is played in much more expansive environments than tight corridors and small rooms. But once I got the game to the table and started playing the campaign I began to really enjoy it; the bad guys seem a bit stronger in this game than in Descent and it feels more fun for the Overlord equivalent (the Imperial player). There’s also a two-player skirmish mode in the box that adds value to the game.
Along with the rules summary, you’ll also find the first guest contribution on the EOG, a wonderful foamcore box insert design from EOG member David Acton.
