1. "Star wars Rebellion" was my favourite game last year and it is still my favourite game. It is a grand strategic game of star wars. It is very very thematic. But because it represents several films all rolled into one each movie event is reduced to a few minutes of play.
Half the game is building space ships, building troops, battles and capturing planets. This is fairly well done. They managed to make the empire much much stronger militarily than the rebels without unbalancing the game. (by comparison...in the movies they had to reduce the stormtroopers to total incompetence to keep the movie balanced)
The other half of the game are the missions. This is the part of the game which is in my opinion spectacular. Each side has a half dozen or so characters from Star Wars and you assign each of them to missions. There is a lot of guessing and second guessing and deception. I really enjoy that part of the game.
But it is a long game. It really helps to have a place to keep it set up.
2.I have not played "battle of five armies" but it seems to be a good battle game.
huhu, yea was expecting it to take a longer time. Is there a possibility that the game ends prematurely? Like finding the Rebel base by accident?
