Star Wars: Imperial Assault
Imperial Assault casts you and your friends into the climactic events following the Death Star’s destruction above Yavin 4, and offers two full game experiences within the Star Wars saga. 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. Whether you play as a hero of the Rebellion and fight alongside iconic characters like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, or command the seemingly limitless armies of the Galactic Empire, you’ll enter the Star Wars universe in Imperial Assault.
As an added bonus, Imperial Assault includes the Darth Vader Villain Pack and the Luke Skywalker Ally Pack. These figure packs mark the first expansions for Imperial Assault, adding sculpted plastic figures with new campaign and skirmish missions.
Imperial Assault contains:
- A learn to play rulebook, a rules reference, a campaign guide, and a skirmish guide
- 34 detailed plastic figures
- 59 double-sided map tiles
- Eleven custom dice
- Over 250 cards
- Over 150 assorted tokens
- The Luke Skywalker Ally Pack and the Darth Vader Villain Pack

Just brilliant. Captures the feel of the original movies as rebels frantically run around trying to disable tractor beams and so on. Some snowball issues, but with a good group, that won’t be a problem. Ridiculous amount of content. Sad that it won’t be added to, but relieved that it means sequel nonsense will never taint it.
One of the best board games ever created
I have played this game innumerable times. I've run groups through every available campaign many times over. Imperial Assault is one of the most balanced, well thought out games I've ever played. It feels very Star Wars and it can be exceptionally challenging tactically if you have the right players. It is a real shame that production of further content for this game was shelved. Incredible game.
very complex game, lots of fun learning and painting!
