: Matt, are you ready to review the Rise of the Empire expansion
for Star Wars™: Rebellion? To bring everyone up to speed, Rebellion is a grand 2-4 player game set in the Star Wars universe, which I reviewed
and said it was fun, but I couldn't quite recommend it.
What does the expansion add? Well, let me just quote the press materials: “Rise of the Empire isn't just inspired by Rogue One
; it follows the movie's example, adding new depth and story to the Rebellion game experience just as seamlessly as Rogue One
provided new insight into the Galactic Civil War presented in the original Star Wars trilogy.”
: I just did a big vomit out of a window. In Real-World Terms™ it’s an expansion that adds quite a bunch of stuff: new leader characters, new cards, a whole new combat system, more unit types and plastic figures, and a brand new planet: EWOK-HOTH, HOME OF THE CHILLYBEARS.
