Imperial Assault


From the website:

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Imperial Assault, a Star Wars board game of cinematic adventure and tactical combat for two to five players!

Imperial Assault casts you and your friends into the climatic events following the Death Star’s destruction above Yavin 4, and offers two full game experiences within the Star Wars universe. In the campaign game, you and up to four other friends play a series of thrilling missions woven together in a narrative campaign, and in the skirmish game, you and your opponent muster your own strike teams and battle head-to-head over conflicting objectives.

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this!

  • Demoed this at Gen Con. Very awesome. I will be getting it.

  • wormwoode

    Are the minis made of the same stuff as Descent? Wouldn’t keep me from buying it, or anything, but I wouldn’t be mad at all if they took the opportunity to step-up their plastics a bit.

    I’m gonna be all over this like stink on a monkey.

    • Soulfinger

      Sir, you need to bathe your monkey!

        That was more sexual than I had intended.

            Mission Accomplished!

    First I’ve heard of this game….and was just thinking in the last week or so how awesome it would be to have a Star Wars version of Descent.

    Call me when they do a squad based tabletop game with the license. Then I’m in, probably passing on this one until then.

    • Marauder

      I could see that happening someday. They did X-wing – now Armada. Why not a squad based one after this? Maybe even use the Dust Warfare core rules as a base?

      But really, they should wait until the new movies come out – maybe there will be some big battles in that!
