Star Wars: Rebellion
Played hooky today and got in my 5th or 6th, can’t remember, play of Rebellion. I think I’ve gotten in an even number of Imperial and Rebel plays. Today I was the Rebellion.
Very, very tense game! Against a new Empire player! It was also probably the most true-to-canon game yet: bad guys blew up a system to make a point, the Rebels blew up the Death Star with a one-in-a-million shot (which, if you have the eponymous card, is a sure thing), and what looked like a steady and implacable march toward Empire victory swing at the last possible moment in the Rebellion’s favor. Yay us!
That ridiculous stack of grey plastic is parked one system away from the rebel base. That’s where we made our brave stand.
It may have also been the first time I’ve won with the Rebels since my very first play. Man the odds feel stacked against them. The fact I largely won because I was against an inexperienced Empire player did not go unnoticed.
Still feeling very good about this purchase. Loving that it’s a big event game but not laden with the cruft of say Twilight Imperium or COIN.
