We're a week out from the release of Star Wars: Rebellion from Fantasy Flight Games. They have posted up a new preview video for the game that you might want to check out. They're also going to be running a special event for the first week of the game's release.
For the week-long event, players will be encouraged to share their game results online. As such, an interactive map will display circles of Rebel and Imperial influence. As the galactic empire brings more systems under its control, their influence will increase. Meanwhile, the Rebellion will be trying to cover the map in red (for... freedom, not like, "the blood of our enemies" or something from The Shining...).
