"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. 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! Contents include: 1 game board (split in 2 halves), 170 plastic miniatures, 25 leaders (with stands), 10 custom dice, Over 170 cards, 1 Learn to Play Booklet, 1 Rules Reference".

Star Wars: Rebellion, from Fantasy Flight Games, is a two-to-four-player tabletop game that pits the evil Galactic Empire against the heroes of the Rebel Alliance. The game is based on the original Star Wars trilogy and contains two game boards that fit together, a mountain of cards, and many, many, minis.

Probably the best Star Wars board game out there

Probably the best Star Wars board game out there. Best played with 2 players, but it can be played with 4 though. In a 4-player game, the players are in 2 teams and split responsibilities.
The Ultimate Star Wars Tabletop Experience!

Star Wars Rebellion is without a doubt the crowning achievement from Fantasy Flight Games, and that is saying a lot. I’ve played many of their titles including Twilight Imperium, Forbidden Stars and X-wing Miniatures. Rebellion combines elements from these games into an all-new play style that feels streamlined but not overly simplistic and that allows for lots of unique game play strategies. Most importantly, it feels like Star Wars thanks to the excellent execution of thematic elements.
Beautiful, intricate game

If you’re really into organizing board game pieces and get a kick out of punching out hundreds of cardboard tokens, you will adore this game the second you open it. Luckily, we are exactly those people and it was like a present within a present. My fiancé spent Christmas morning carefully categorizing and setting up all of the pieces in this game. We haven’t even had a chance to play it yet, but it sure is beautiful, and it’s one of the highest ranked board games on a certain board game review site, so we are really excited to get it set up. My first impressions are that extreme attention to detail went into this game, and I’m really excited about the asymmetric gameplay of Empire v. Rebellion, and that you can play it many different ways depending on how many people you have. On the downside, it made my fiancé get really interested in starting miniature painting because the little Death Stars in this game are so cool, and now I might lose him to a new engrossing hobby. If you like Star Wars and are into really intricate detail in your games, this will hit all of the right notes for you.
Original Trilogy w/ Alternate Plot Twists!
Played this at friend’s and had to add it to my collection. I personally don’t care much for war/strategy games where you move units, take territories, and destroy the opposition. (Axis & Allies, etc). Rebellions has those elements but makes it interesting for me with asymmetrical gameplay, variety of themed missions, and the Star Wars narrative that plays out making every game memorable.
Best. Game. Ever.
This is my absolute FAVORITE board game that was ever made. It is absolutely fantastic in almost every single aspect. I am not exaggerating. The miniatures are everything you ever want. The thematic style is exhilarating for even the most casual star wars fan. Everyone gets excited about blowing up an entire planet with the death star. The best part of the game is intricacies of strategy and the constant tension of how to best utilize your previous resources. The game is hardly ever out of reach for either player as the “rapid mobilization” card allows for the game to flip on its head suddenly. It is worth every penny. The ONLY downside in my opinion is the combat process. It can take a long time to work through even the most simple battle. This stretches out the game even for experienced players. All in all a 5 star no brainer board game that every gamer needs on his shelf.
The epic Star Wars in a box experience
This is the best game of its type out right now. Think Axis and Allies in the Star Wars Universe, and you get an idea. It is two players generally, but can work with 4 if you work in teams. Each side has a unique objective to win; The Empire is hunting the galaxy to find and destroy the hidden rebel base, while the Rebels are attempting to free planets, and gain influence to their cause. If they succeed before the Empire discovers their base, they win. It’s a race against time, as each system won by the Rebels draws them nearer to victory, but the Empire has a full arsenal of weapons, ships, and soldiers and even a Death Star at their disposal to track down and eliminate the Rebellion once and for all. This is an epic cinematic game that takes the fight to a planetary scale. If you love strategy games and are a Star Wars fan, it is a must have.
THE 2-player Star Wars game for sci-fi fans and wargamers.

What a great game! I love asymmetrical games and SW:R is one of the best out there. The cat-and-mouse nature really shines. Supposedly the Empire has a slight advantage, but I have not yet seen it after five games.
Star Wars Rebellion comes in a good side box and it is heavy

Unboxing: Star Wars Rebellion comes in a good side box and it is heavy. This is because it is packed full of miniatures, card, tokens, two large game boards (that are placed next to each other to make one large one.) Everything is very good quality as one might expect after Fantasy Flight Game’s other Star Wars games.
