Star Wars: Outer Rim


Out on the fringes of the galaxy, the Empire's grasp on star systems is much more tenuous. There, smugglers of all form ply their trade, dealing with various criminal organizations while still trying to stay ahead of the few Imperial agents that exist there, as well as a plethora of bounty hunters. How will you make your living? That's what you have to figure out in Star Wars: Outer Rim, the new board game available now from Fantasy Flight.

Yes, yes, yes. I know. "Get it!? Solo mode!?! In a Star Wars game?!?" You're very clever for making the joke. Anyway, for those that find themselves with no other gamers about but they still want to get their Star Wars: Outer Rim fix, there's rules for playing solitaire-style, you versus the game. In this preview, we get a look at how that works.

On the edges of civilized space, there's bound to be some conflict. You've got smugglers looking to trade goods. There's the Empire looking to stop them. And, of course, a smuggler might get double-crossed by the person they're working for. In this preview for Star Wars: Outer Rim Fantasy Flight looks at how combat will work in the game.

Get a job. Sha-na-na-na, Sha-na-na-na-naaaa
Ba-doom. Sha-na-na-na, Sha-na-na-na-naaaa

50's Do-wop aside, in Star Wars: Outer Rim, you're gonna need to get a job, or probably several, if you're going to get ahead in the world of smuggling. In this preview, we get a look at just how that works, as well as what skill tests are like in the game.

So, you've travelled all around the galaxy, avoiding any sort of Imperial entanglements along the way. But what do you do when you get to your destination? That's what we get a look at in this preview for Star Wars: Outer Rim, coming soon from Fantasy Flight Games.

Out on the fringes of the galaxy lies the Outer Rim. Most people think that it's nothing but a hive of scum and villainy... and they're right! But it's your hive of scum and villainy, and you're going to become the scummiest scum and most villainous villain that you can, all while operating out on the very edge of soceity. In Star Wars: Outer Rim, a new board game coming from Fantasy Flight, become a smuggler, bounty hunter, or other sort of cast-off from society and make your name in a galaxy that isn't a fan of your very existence.
