This game covers one battle in the Star Wars Universe - The Battle of Endor. Kylo Ren has no place on the cover, this game has nothing to do with episode VI. There are three theatres of battle - Luke and Vader's duel, The battle in space, and the battle on Endor's surface.
Is the game similar to risk? Strangely,for someone interested in board games, I have never played ordinary risk - so I couldn't say.
+ Miniatures are small, but sturdy, numerous and surprisingly well detailed.
+ The rules were very easy to pick up, and quick play time - games last just under an hour.
+ Plays well both with two and four players.
+ Games are exciting, offence is encouraged, battles often run close and the two sides have some very interesting asymmetry. (more on this below)
+ Theme is very well reflected in gameplay.
+ This is a complete experience with everything you need to play. The maximum amount of dice you will roll is 5 - and that is what they have given you. There are no expansions to tempt you in to spending far too much money. (I'm referring to Star Wars Armada here)
- Quality of the board and cards is fair rather than outstanding.
- There are no regular star destoyers represented for the empire - only the one super star destroyer.
- The game box is easily twice as big as it needs to be. This is actually a very compact game to store and transport - if you replace the box it comes in!
+ I have seen people say it is difficult to win as the empire - and this is true - the rebels are perhaps more forgiving of mistakes. But an empire player with some experience can make the game run very close indeed.
If you are the Empire:
Use the death star as much and as early as possible - it's by far the most efficient way of taking out the rebel ships, and don't forget the bonus cards every time it blows something up.
Don't lose the Executor early in the game - keep deploying those TIEs and stay out of the rebels' reach - then once you have enough TIEs on the board, go on the offensive.
Keep the TIEs in large blobs. You'll hit hard and rob the other player of bonus cards for clearing sectors.
Go for the Falcon - it's fast, but weak and rarely properly protected, and you'll get two bonus cards for destroying it.
Deploy your Stormtroopers only as the rebels reach the last few spaces of the endor track - but don't leave it too late!
Luke is not really a priority, but stay even in the fight and do NOT let the rebels redeem Vader.
If you are the rebels:
If the other player is using the death star, move your ships off the carriers asap.
Then, split your focus roughly 50/50 between Vader and Endor. You generally want to hold back in space, but by all means hit the Executor and clear out sectors where you can.
If you can redeem Vader (which is not difficult to do) you get a whopping 5 bonus cards. Use them to storm up the Endor track and counter attack any encroaching TIEs - remember though, you can't win the game without winning Endor first,
As with the empire, in space numbers matter for attacking and survivability. Keep those ships grouped together!
+ I also recommend you invest in some small press-to-close plastic bags for the ships and tokens, and card sleeves for the cards. (they are slightly smaller than standard size, but standard size will just about do) It will GREATLY extend the life of the game.
In conclusion, this is a quick, simple, but tactically deep game that will be fun for anyone who knows Star Wars, or who likes strategy games in general. £34.99 RRP looks a little pricey for what you get, but if you see it for £20-£30 this is a definite buy.
Arrived quickly and packaged well.
