Hi Chaps,

Can I ask is Imperial Assault different enough from Rebllion, or are they very similar?

Cheers!

The short answer is yes they are different. Most of the fantasy flight games use a lot of similar concepts though.

The biggest difference is the way it played. IA is up to 5 player, with 1 imperial and up to 4 rebels ( they are working on an app to make it fully coop). They also have a skirmish mode. Rebellion is 2 players and I've heard that it kind of works with 4. Rebellion takes 3-4 hours vs 1-2 for IA.

I don't think they are radically different games (same theme, lots of card play), but they offer very different experiences.

Utterly, completely, totally different, with the theme of Star Wars as the only common demoninator. Assault is a skirmish level game depicting individual battles while Rebellion is a strategic level game depicting the entire galaxy during the rebellion.
