Fantasy Flight Games has announced Star Wars: Rebellion – Epic Conflict on a Galactic Scale!
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Star Wars™: Rebellion, a board game that aims to capture the full scope of the classic Star Wars trilogy.
In Rebellion, two to four players control the entire Galactic Empire or the fledgling Rebel Alliance. Games span multiple star systems. Planets join the Rebellion only to be overrun by the Empire and subjugated. Imperial officers capture Rebel spies and interrogate them for valuable information. A hotshot Rebel pilot may land a one-in-a-million shot against the Death Star and destroy it. Rebellion is sweeping, but also remains intensely heroic, cinematic, and personal. Success depends upon the strength of a player’s starships, vehicles, and troops, and above all on the individual efforts of iconic characters including Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, Grand Moff Tarkin, and Emperor Palpatine.
The fate of the entire galaxy is at stake in Rebellion, and that galaxy has a very real physical presence on the table. Two game boards join together to depict thirty-two of the Star Wars galaxy’s most notable star systems and over 150 miniatures representing X-wings, Y-wings, TIE fighters, AT- ATs, Star Destroyers —even the Death Star in two different stages of completion.
“This is the Star Wars game I have always wanted to play, but couldn’t because it didn’t exist until now,” says Board Game Manager Steve Kimball. “It has been a privilege developing this game alongside Game Designer Corey Konieczka. Rebellion’s brand new, asymmetrical system offers deeply thematic gameplay, and we are excited to have players experience its rich, emergent narrative.”
Star WarsTM: Rebellion is scheduled to become available in the first quarter of 2016.

Simultaneously, it is intensely personal, cinematic, and heroic. Your forces are led by iconic heroes or villains. Including such characters as Leia Organa, Mon Mothma, Grand Moff Tarkin, and Emperor Palpatine, these leaders and their individual talents drive everything you do. As civil war spreads throughout the galaxy, these leaders are invaluable to your efforts, and the secret missions they attempt will evoke many of the most inspiring moments from the classic trilogy. You might send Luke Skywalker to receive Jedi training on Dagobah or have Darth Vader spring a trap that freezes Han Solo in carbonite!
This. Is. Awesome. We have FFG making another Star Wars board games at the Galactic level! Fighting the Galactic Civil War over multiple planets with fleets & heroes and even some ground combat? YES PLEASE! Fantasy Flight is no stranger to these massive scale games Twilight Imperium, Forbidden Stars and a ton of other games are in the same vein so they know what they are doing. The fact that it’s set during the Rebellion Era in Star Wars is just icing on the cake.
