Hi guys,

i couldn't understand
how many diverse skirmish maps are there in the base game?
and how many different missions are there?

if i'm buying the base game mainly for the skirmish, does it has enough replay value?

thanks!

There are 6 skirmish missions, 2 for each of the 3 maps in the core game.

I have played the skirmish only a few times, but the replayability does not only come from varying the maps and objectives, but from squad and command deck building. If you play for fun and not tournaments, you'll have fun for a long time with just the core box.

At some point you'll want to buy figure expansions to allow more options for both squad and command deck building. For example the mercenary faction does not really have much variety/viability on its own with just the core box stuff. (But by spending a point you can do limited mix of factions.)

Having owned everything, there are a LOT of skirmish maps. So if map variety is a thing, it grows very, very fast (each expansion pack has two different skirmish maps). I've played many skirmishes, and it hasn't dropped off in enjoyability yet

I'm sure you mean each expansion has one map for two skirmish missions.

The core box comes with Luke and Vader expansions, thus 3 maps and 6 missions.

To date (I don't have the Hoth-stuff yet), there are 17 maps, 34 skirmish missions.

Yes, that's what I was thinking, but I guess my fingers weren't listening to my brain

Each pack has one map but two mission cards. Your mission deck will rapidly get large.
