Whichever option you choose, your task involves accounting for troop movements, rallying systems to your cause, and of course, commanding starships.

Choose to represent the rebels or the huge empire armies

If you decide to represent an Imperial player, your tasks involve commanding swarms of TIE fighters, Storm Troopers, Star Destroyers, and of course the Death Star. It is as if you are ruling the galaxy by fear because you are relying on the strength of your massive military who are out there to enforce your will. Nonetheless, if you want to win the game, you are supposed to overpower the budding Rebel Alliance by locating their base and of course, obliterating it besides destroying them and subjugating worlds.

If you decide to take the role of Rebel player, your task involves commanding dozens of troopers, fighter squadrons, and Corellian Corvettes. Perhaps you have noted that these new forces are not matching the ones found in the Imperial military. As far as raw strength is concerned, you will find yourself overmatched from the outset. Therefore, you have to rally the planets in a bid to execute and join targeted military strikes so that you are in a better position to sabotage the Imperial yards and even to steal their valuable intelligence. Overall, if you want to win the Galactic Civil War, you have no option but to sway the citizens of the galaxy to your cause. It is evident that if you strengthen your reputation and survive for longer periods, you are going to inspire the Galaxy to so-called full-scale revolt and without no doubt, you win the game.

Star Wars: Rebellion (2016)
  • Total


Star Wars: Rebellion remains intensely cinematic, heroic, and personal despite its grandiosity. As much as player’s success depends entirely on the strength of your side’s vehicles, troops, and starships, it goes without being noticed that participant’s victory depends upon the individual efforts of some few notable characters in the game such as Mon Mothma, Leia Organa, Emperor Palpatine, and Grand Moff Tarkin. These characters play a great role in ensuring that you have had a wondering board gaming experience.
