The new Star Wars: Armada campaign is in stores now – come take a tour of The Corellian Conflict!
Here at BoLS, we’ve been waiting for this one for awhile. We weren’t quite sure what this new expansion for Armada was going to bring to the table. But once we opened the box we were not disappointed:
Let’s get this out of the way first:
- New Missions
- New Aces/Starfighter Squadrons
- New Terrain
- New Objectives
- New Rules for a Campaign (duh)
- New Map for tracking the Campaign
- Plus lots of tokens and doodads for Campaign play
This box has everything you’ll need for running a 2-6 player campaign using all of your Star Wars: Armada goodies. The map is made of high-quality poster-like material so it’s perfect for hanging on a wall of your hobby space or store. Depending on how many players you have, each player can control a fleet and engage in a dynamic campaign to dominate the Corellia system.
The rules are fairly typical campaign style – unique ships are unique for the entire faction and you’re supposed to keep track of destroyed ships throughout the campaign. This means that if you lose your Ace Squadron they are gone for the rest of the campaign. This does put a cap on the number of games you’re probably going to play. Personally, I really like the thought of waging a war vs a few buddies with set fleets and victory conditions.
The Corellian Conflict is really a campaign in a box but, importantly for Tournament players, it has a bunch of new Aces/Squadrons you’re going to want to take in your games. All the general missions and the new Aces/Squadrons are 100% legal for organized play events from FFG. This is pretty much a must buy for any serious Star Wars: Armada players out there. There are missions that are campaign specific – be sure you read the rules about those before you bring them to a tournament!
Overall, this product really is a fantastic campaign-in-a-box deal. Campaigns are great ways to try new ships out in an environment that can really breed a fun, collaborative community. If you’re looking for ways to get people interest in Star Wars: Armada running a campaign is a perfect way to build some interest. And even if you’re just looking for some casual games it’s still a good pick-up because the campaign is only a couple of rounds. I would definitely recommend folks give this one a shot!
