You’ve (probably) played Pandemic before, but not in a galaxy far, far away (again, probably). But soon, you can. Asmodee and Z-Man Games have announced a partnership to create Star Wars: The Clone Wars board game using the popular Pandemic system.
From the article:
Traverse a galaxy where iconic Jedi heroes utilize the familiar gameplay mechanics of the Pandemic series. These, combined with the beloved story and character elements of Star Wars, bring you a unique experience with Star Wars™: The Clone Wars.
Planets under siege populate the game board as players take on the role of legendary Jedi traveling from battle to battle, teaming up and fighting off the Separatist threat. Battle droids attack on sight, and a planet invaded by too many will fall under a blockade, hindering Jedi from liberating it from the enemy or accomplishing missions.
Players must work together to confront the onslaught of droids by moving into their spaces and engaging them in combat, utilizing dice and Squad Cards to deal damage and push back the threat. In between battles, players move from planet to planet, battling more droids, crushing blockades, completing missions to turn the tide of war, and facing off against iconic villains.
