The Definitive Top 5 Star Wars Games

Supporter

Welcome to the definitive list of the Top 5 Star Wars games. What's your favorite?

5.#Star Wars Armada 

Have only played this once and don't actually own anything for it but it was SO cool. Would probably rank higher than X-Wing but I didn't feel that I had enough experience with it to rank it higher than this. Commanding capital ships is so satisfying and fun. 

4.#Star Wars X-Wing: Core Set

This game is really fun and thematic. I just wish I had someone to play it with me. It really captures the feeling of dogfighting in Star Wars. 
A tremendous two player game. 

3.#Star Wars: Outer Rim

The first game on this list that you can play solo or with more than one additional player, this game really brings a lot of Star Wars flavor to the table. I really love all the detail and asymmetry between the different player characters. It's really fun playing as Boba Fett and hunting down bounties one game and then playing as Jyn Erso and attempting to sabotage Imperial planets the next. And of course it's always exciting to be chasing that really cool ship or weapon upgrade to make your endeavors more successful. There's lots of room for expansion in this game and I'm surprised FFG didn't put out any information for an expansion this year. Sad!

2.#Star Wars Imperial Assault

Ah. IA. What a beautiful, thematic, amazing game. Star Wars pairs so incredibly well with a dungeon crawler like this. The feeling of Star Wars permeates everything, from the look of the modular tiles, to the graphic design of the cards, to the miniatures and dice. So many incredible Star Wars stories are told through this game. It's a blast solo, co-op, skirmish, or the biggest blast is traditional mode with Empire versus Rebels.

1.#Star Wars: Rebellion

Now THIS is Star Wars. Many reviews describe this game as "Star Wars in a box" and they do so for a good reason - That is quite simply the easiest way to describe this game. This is my absolute number one favorite Game of all time and sure it takes a while to set up and sure it takes a long time but it is SO worth it and SO much fun to play. You tell your own Star Wars Saga each time you play. So many possibilities each game. Ah it is amazing, truly. And also the best Star Wars game out there. 

What do you guys think?

I do really want to try #Star Wars: Rebellion, it just looks gorgeous and intense and immersive. Now if I could only win two giveaways simultaneously.....

I love the expertise you give yourself by calling it definitive.

Lol, I had to differentiate from other non-definitive Star Wars lists.

I just found a used copy of Rebellion at my local game store for $40. Now I need to find the time to play it. :)

Supporter3 months ago

This sounds like an amazing deal. Good job!

Supporter3 months ago

Well that sounds like a steal! Was it in good condition?

Edit: Wait.... by local store do you mean Captain Nemo's?? Cause then I missed out!! xD

Supporter3 months ago

Yeah, it was at Nemo's. It is in good shape. It has a little corner wear on a couple of box corners, but it looks great overall.

We need to live closer to each other...

I will say, about X-Wing, that it is solo now! At least, they're working on the rules still, but it's available: https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/fc/4d/fc4dc724-5757-4d80-ae43-7616bc190c54/x-wing-solorules_openalpha-compressed.pdf

And I've played in a furball tournament for X-Wing with 8 or 9 players, each one of us controlling one ship. Points are earned for hits and kills, and if your ship goes ka-freakin-boom, it respawns at the start of your next turn. Very fun, frantic mode of play. Highly recommended. 

And I really want to try Armada.

I'm glad to see #Star Wars Armada getting some love haha. It's a great game. You should give #Star Wars: Legion a try too. I have both and they are so immersive and great.

Supporter3 months ago

I'm kind of angry at Legion because it's responsible for ending Imperial Assault. 

Supporter3 months ago

I felt the same when Legion was first announced. Specially since I was on the fence to buy #Star Wars Imperial Assault and all of a sudden FFG came out with a new minis game. Eventually my gaming group bought into legion and I gave in. I still want to try Imperial Assault though.

Supporter3 months ago

Great list!  I haven't played Outer Rim yet but I agree with the rest. 

Rebellion is definitely the original series in a box for sure and my favourite on the list.   The interesting twists to the original story that you can get are always fun. 

The last couple of times I played the empire commander made it his mission to kidnap and turn Leia in one turn.  He succeeded both times but lost the game so I guess Vader wins a daughter but loses an empire!

I knew this list was coming from you....
