This isn't a real variant, its more for the discussion.

But it does seem like this is what should happen.

all that "building alliances" is the rebellion paying the Hutts.
it isn't inconceivable that if Han would have paid Jabba in time, they could have later hired his services.

It would be a cool element in the game, where Jabba moves to the Rebels' pool regardless if he has been recruited by the empire or not. They could even re-recruit him back from the rebels (they just paid him more money - he is a scumbag after-all).

just a thought for the discussion.

Lol - now talk of a crazy thing to happen in the game!

I don't really know all of the lore around Jabba; is he supposed to really be connected to his people, the Hutt? (It certainly isn't like we see any other Hutt in the movies that I remember of...)

For balance, should we get Saw Gererra to roll a die at the end of each command phase, and if he rolls sabers then he doesn't come back to the leader's pool 'cause he's not sure it's not the Empire's?

How about, if the Imperials already have Jabba, the Rebels lose 1 reputation to recruit him (the whole galaxy knows he's a scumbag.

The Imperials regain him if they draw (and show) the appropriate action card, play "Hire Mercenary" to get him, or if they gain loyalty in Nal Hutta itself.

Only if he's represented by a picture of a fat guy in a furry vest.

I actually had that situation in my last game: The Empire recruited Jabba while I scored Support of the Hutts in the same round. I actually thought that it was quite thematic, having the Hutt Cartel profiteering off both sides of the conflict, hedging their beds (Jabba offering his services to the Empire, while the Rebellion gets the backing of some other clans) It's not unlike some Hutt events in the current Star Wars comics

The Hutts playing both sides of the war for their benefit? That's TOTALLY not something the Hutts literally always do. whistle

Not to mention all the other cannon and legends sources that delve more into the activities of the Hutts.

Remember Star Wars is far more than just the movies.
