Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space. Travelling around that vast area takes time and effort and a good navigation computer. In this preview for Outer Rim, Fantasy Flight shows us just how travel works in the upcoming board game.
From the website:
“It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. I've outrun Imperial starships. Not the local bulk cruisers mind you, I'm talking about the big Corellian ships now. She's fast enough for you old man. What's the cargo?”
–Han Solo, Star Wars: A New Hope
Scoundrels in the Star Wars galaxy have to stay on the move. Whether they're avoiding entanglements with the authorities or searching for a fresh well of credits, the bounty hunters and scoundrels that populate the Outer Rim can never stay in one place for too long. And as these scoundrels make their way across the edge of the galaxy, tales of their adventures turn their journeys into legends.
If you hope to become the most famous or infamous scoundrel in the galaxy, you can’t nest on one planet. Odd jobs will only get you so far and your adventures will take you from planet to planet as you expand your legacy in the Outer Rim. But be warned, you aren’t alone. Rebels, Imperials, Hutts and Crime Lords all have a stake in the Outer Rim, and their patrols stalk the skies.
Join us today as we preview how to move across the galaxy in Star Wars™: Outer Rim, a board game of bounty hunters, mercenaries, and smugglers for one to four players.
