Star Wars: Rebellion is a board game of epic conflict between the
Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance for two to four players!
Experience the Galactic Civil War like never before. In Rebellion, you
control the entire Galactic Empire or the fledgling Rebel Alliance. You
must command starships, account for troop movements, and rally systems
to your cause. Given the differences between the Empire and Rebel
Alliance, each side has different win conditions, and you'll need to
adjust your play style depending on who you represent:
As the Imperial player, you can command legions of Stormtroopers, swarms
of TIEs, Star Destroyers, and even the Death Star. You rule the galaxy
by fear, relying on the power of your massive military to enforce your
will. To win the game, you need to snuff out the budding Rebel Alliance
by finding its base and obliterating it. Along the way, you can
subjugate worlds or even destroy them.
As the Rebel player, you can command dozens of troopers, T-47
airspeeders, Corellian corvettes, and fighter squadrons. However, these
forces are no match for the Imperial military. In terms of raw strength,
you'll find yourself clearly overmatched from the very outset, so you'll
need to rally the planets to join your cause and execute targeted
military strikes to sabotage Imperial build yards and steal valuable
intelligence. To win the Galactic Civil War, you'll need to sway the
galaxy's citizens to your cause. If you survive long enough and
strengthen your reputation, you inspire the galaxy to a full-scale
revolt, and you win.
Featuring more than 150 plastic miniatures and two game boards that
account for thirty-two of the Star Wars galaxy's most notable systems,
Rebellion features a scope that is as large and sweeping as any Star
Wars game before it.
Yet for all its grandiosity, Rebellion remains intensely personal,
cinematic, and heroic. As much as your success depends upon the strength
of your starships, vehicles, and troops, it depends upon the individual
efforts of such notable characters as Leia Organa, Mon Mothma, Grand
Moff Tarkin, and Emperor Palpatine. 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!
