The title says it all. I hope it is, since I've been hunting down that game for quite long.

Well, it has the background of the battle of Hoth...and you have the Empire and the Rebellion...

My guess...

Odds are that those types of similarities will abound...whilst it will be distinctly lacking many other similarities you may be looking for if you are an Assault on Hoth fan????

I don't think an 80s hex and counter wargame is going to have much similarity to a modern LEGO kids game.

I agree with alfonzo. I highly doubt it will be at all similar other than just being Hoth. This game is focused towards kids and will most likely be extremely simple when it comes to rules.

Hey, it's Star Wars, it's Empire Strikes Back, it has walkers and snow speeders - what else do you want?

Sure buy.

I mentioned to my wife "Boy, they sure have figured out the ideal game for my kids." I mean, the Lego adventurers games are close, but Star Wars and Legos? Wow.

Also, as a happy owner of Assault on Hoth, I'll say that it might, somehow, be like it, but I'll wager half my collection it'll have nothing to do with it. Sorry. Keep hunting, though, it's an awesome game.

But I assume you'll wager the half _not_ including Assault on Hoth ...

When I was 4 I wanted nothing more than Star Wars legos and they didn't come out until I was past my toy-buying age. I think I recall trying to make up games with my legos as well. Basically what I'm saying is that LEGO should have hired little me as a design consultant twenty-odd years ago.

The crowbar is used to pry tiles off the die. Some Lego games have different configurations you can use, and that makes it easier to get those flat pieces off of it.

Looks structurally a bit more like a roll and move battle game with some similarities to Heroica.

Doesn't look to have any snowspeeders either.

There's a chunky snowspeeder at the bottom right of the picture to the left of the turret.
