"The more you tighten your grasp, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers."
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 Star Wars: 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. Featuring more than 150 plastic miniatures and two game boards that account for thirty-two of the Star Wars galaxy's most notable systems, Star Wars: Rebellion features a scope that is as large and sweeping as any Star Wars game before it.
Yet for all its grandiosity, Star Wars: 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!

The Classic Trilogy in a Single Box
In Star Wars: Rebellion, you and up to three friends seize control of the entire Galactic Empire and the fledgling Rebel Alliance, only to engage in an epic series of conflicts that will ultimately determine the fate of the galaxy.
At the center of these struggles, you have a tense game of cat-and-mouse as the Empire searches for the location of the Rebellion's hidden base, intending to deploy there in force and end the Rebellion with one decisive battle. The Rebellion, meanwhile, must deflect the Empire's attention and fleet movements away from its hidden base in order to buy time. It must then use this time to strike against the Empire through covert missions and guerilla warfare; each of its successes exposes the Empire's weaknesses and moves the galaxy one step closer to open revolt.
Deeply inspired by the classic trilogy, these asymmetrical struggles burst with Star Wars flavor at every turn. You can enjoy massive fleet battles. AT-AT Walkers can march against Rebel emplacements. Mon Mothma may convince the galaxy's citizens to join the Rebel Alliance; Darth Vader may cow them into quiet submission. As you wage your Galactic Civil War, you will battle over planetary systems, compete for their resources, and make desperate runs at secret missions that can turn the game on its head.
Will Luke Skywalker become a Jedi? Will Boba Fett capture General Dodonna and freeze him in carbonite? Will Wedge Antilles destroy the Death Star, and will the Empire construct a second Death Star in time to obliterate the Rebellion's hidden base? Every game of Star Wars: Rebellion is full of dramatic tension that hearkens straight back to the classic trilogy, even as the game allows you to discover your own take on the Galatic Civil War.
