The mission of the Rebel player is to destroy the Death Star, but first they must destroy the shield generator protecting it on Endor.

The gameplay centers around the final scenes from Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi. The battle occurs on three fronts. The main battle is in the center of the board centering on the Death Star. At the same time, Luke and Vader face off on the Death Star, while Han, Chewie, and Leia are on Endor trying to take the shield generator down.
The rebels win by destroying the Death Star, but first have to disable the shield generator on the moon of Endor. Meanwhile, Luke confronts and attempts to redeem or destroy his Father, which reaps many bonus actions for the victor. The rebel fleet is also enduring withering fire from the Death Star, Super Star Destroyer, and seemingly endless tie fighter sorties, trying to hold out until the shield finally comes down so they can blow up the Death Star.
On the other side of the force, the Empire player wins by eliminating the rebel fleet. It sounds simple, however, I don't think the Empire can totally ignore the other fronts in the battle, or they Risk granting the rebels an easy win.
Inside you'll find:
- Scads of ships. There are dozens of plastic miniature Tie Fighters, X-wings, Y-wings, B-wings. I'm glad they went this route. The detail for the scale is just fine and looks much more fun than if everything had been card board. I always think of plastic troops when I think of Risk, so I think this was a great way to keep the game linked to the parent branding.
- Three part game board. The board forms the silhouette of a tie fighter approaching. The space battle is featured in the center, Endor generator battle on one side, and The Luke and Vader confrontation on the other side.
- Two Card Decks. One deck for each player/team. These cards show the orders available for each commander. Cards are thin, and don't look like they will hold up to rigorous shuffling. I'll probably try to find star wars themed card sleeves for these and only shuffle over hand.
- Card board tokens. These include markers for Luke and Vaders health, progress of the rebel commandos, storm troopers, Millenium Falcon, Super Star Destroyer, and rebel capital ships (where the fighters waiting to launch are deployed at game start). Most of these, I'd have preferred to have been miniatures also. Hopefully, a deluxe edition will sprout from their Wizards of the Coast company to produce a collector's edition with the quality of "Queens Gambit", which this game shares many design elements.
- Five Red Dice. Used in combat, these dice are all you'll ever need, since you never get to roll more than five in an attack. Also, unlike traditional Risk, the defender gets no dice to roll. As such, it's going to be to your advantage to attack more than defend.
- Instruction booklet. It is adequate, in full color, and seems to cover everything. A summary of all the order symbols on cards would have been nice to include on the back cover, so new players don't have to flip through the manual too much.
Overall, while some components seem cheap, with plastic minis I think this was a good value priced game. Game plays quickly, probably 30-45 mins, even with slow players. Decisions are there, but not so agonizing you'll spend all day on them. If you're a fan of the original Star Wars and gaming at all, this is a must buy. Rules are easy to digest and understand, so I didn't bother repeating them here. I'd be happy to answer any questions, if you need to know something more specific.
Okay, onto this game: It is far from traditional Risk. There are three simultaneous 'battles' going on that play out with cards. Luke fights Vader, Rebels try to knock out the shield generator, and a space battle. My favorite thing is how much it plays out like the movie. You can make a lot of moves in space that alter the game, but it all hinges on getting the shields to the Death Star down... which in turn can hinge on Luke / Vader. The first time I played it with my son, I was about to kill Luke when he played the card to "redeem" Darth Vader, which gave him a boost in cards to play, which allowed his Rebels to knock out the shield generator, which caused everything to focus on the space battle. He won and destroyed the Death Star (it is okay to lose to your kids). It was pretty simple, pretty interesting, and plays relatively quickly. I am waiting for my micro machine upgrades to arrive, then it will be epic. :)
There are three main battles going on here. The first is the duel between Luke and Darth. Second is the Battle of Endor where you must get through to knock out the shield generator. Third is the space battle where the rebels have a limited number of ships while the empire can spawn new tie fighters regularly.
It all works by playing three cards and choosing one option per card. These options let you play in one of the three battles. Bonus cards are granted to whoever takes out the Jedi first, so that tends to be the first focus of the game. Then you start working on Endor, then the space battles start up.
I found this game to be geared toward the rebels winning. We played several rounds and the empire lost every time, so it seems like there are some balance issues here. A whole session can be played in @ 30 minutes, so it's fun to blaze through and start over by switching sides. In the end, I still enjoyed this game but luck of the card draw and dice rolls tend to be more of a factor than any real strategy.
