In Star Wars: Rebellion players will face off as either the noble Rebel Alliance or the hated Galactic Empire as both groups battle for control over the galaxy and ultimate victory.
Pro Excellent components
SW: Rebellion comes with a massive, 2-piece game board that is well constructed and has simple and easily understandable graphic design. The 153 plastic minis that make up the players troops are well designed, with excellent detail and solid production quality. All of the games cards feature wonderful art and are made of sturdy cardstock.
Pro Fantastic gameplay perfectly captures the tension of a looming empire battling a fledgling rebellion
From turn one the Empire is able to build large amounts of troops and control multiple planets while the Rebellion tries to get by on what feels like scraps and secretly build their forces up while launching small raids and sabotaging the empire. This leads to the Empire player feeling like they just cant quite destroy this small nuisance while the Rebel player feels always on the verge of destruction by this overwhelming force, even up to the moment of a Rebel victory.
