Are you a good guy by nature or is it the Dark Side that attracts you? In Fantasy Flight’s newest addition to the Star Wars card games, Star Wars: Empire vs Rebellion, we see the narrative expand in the ongoing war between the Galactic Empire and the Rebellion. In this game, you hold the power to relive moments from the classic movies and change the course of iconic events, but you’ll need every resource at your disposal to claim victory in the Galactic Civil War.
Gamers take command of the unlimited resources of the Galactic Empire or the heroic men and women of the Rebel Alliance. In every round, you and your opponent match wits and resources in a struggle during a key event from the Galactic Civil War. You’ll need to stretch your resources to the limit to outmaneuver your opponent and rise above the struggle.
As you employ your resources, iconic characters from the Star Wars saga can have powerful effects on the outcome of a struggle. Whether you leap to the rescue with Luke Skywalker, or scheme in the shadows with Jaba the Hut, your characters shape every struggle they enter throughout the game. At the same time, the underlying strategies give you a way to surprise your opponent. Strategy cards, that are secretly chosen by players at the beginning of each round, can help you claim victory from the most unlikely scenarios. By winning enough struggles for the Empire or the Rebellion, the galaxy is YOURS.
We all know the movies well, and how much fun will it be to see if you can alter the results as we know them?
Will you use the Force for good or will you turn to the Dark Side?
