Fantasy Flight Games to Publish New ‘Star Wars’ Card Game


Fantasy Flight Games has announced it will launch Star Wars: Empire vs. Rebellion, a new strategic card game set in the Galactic Civil War in the third quarter  of 2014, according to hobby news website



The players in this two-player game are either in command of the resources of the Empire, or the heroes of the rebellion.  Game play revolves around trying to tip the outcome of a key event, such as infiltrating Imperial Center or carrying out a strike on an enemy base, in your favor each round.  Players deploy resources in the form of Military, Diplomacy, Recon, or The Force cards.  Character cards shift unfolding events.  Strategy cards for each faction are secretly chosen before play begins, and determine how the faction will approach its operations. 


Star Wars:  Empire vs. Rebellionis designed by Sebastien Gigaudaut and David Rakuto.  

This is Fantasy Flight’s fifth Star Wars game, which also include Star Wars Age of Rebellion RPG, Star Wars Edge of the Empire RPG, Star Wars: The Card Game, and Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game
