The box contains: the Gameboard, a Spinner, 4 Padawans with stands, 24 Mission cards, 24 Lesson cards, 12 Jedi Master Cards, 12 Lightsaber Cards, 24 Logic Skill Tiles, 24 Intuition Skill Tiles, 24 Dark Side Tiles, 24 Energy Skill Tiles, 24 Fighting Skill Tiles, and 4 Plastic buildings (Jedi Council, Tatooine Buildin, Galactic Senate, Jedi Dart Ship).
In Gameplay you choose out of three paths, Clan Kaadu, Clan Gundark, or Clan Bantha. Each path has a varying length, but if you take shorter path, you may not collect enough skill tiles to pass your tests. If you fail your test you go back to start and have to try the same clan again. If you land on various spaces you can gain Skills or lose Skills, etc. After the trials you move along and then there is the first chance to fall to the darkside -- its a shortcut but when you use that route you take at least one darkside tile (sometimes more) and can only get rid of it by being Redeemed. Some Dark Side spaces let you steal from other players so it is a pretty popular route. There are major points in the game like getting a Jedi Master and a lightsaber. Different Masters let you enhance different skills (Intuition, Energy, Logic, or Fighting) and different lightsabers do about the same.Read more ›
We played this game with three Star Wars geeks ranging in age from 27 to 40. It was mildly entertaining but not very challenging or truly engaging. Being a board game, there was high degree of randomness and very little skill or strategy involved. On each square of the game board you could either acquire or lose skills. Sometimes, as on the lesson or mission squares, this was dependent on a spin of the wheel, giving the sense that you were playing a kind of roulette: Your success or failure at the missions and lessons depended on your score rather than any abilities.
The thing that I found most trouble some about this game was that there were very little consequences for failure. If you did not get the necessary totals on your spins you might lose a skill or two, but that did not prevent you from going on. If you didn't have the necessary skills to complete your lightsaber, you were simply instructed to take one anyway, for example. Even when you reached the trials, if you "failed" you just went on to the next step. I would have found it more interesting if there were more places where you had to go back and start over; as it was, you could complete the game without having any skills at all. Even following the Dark Side didn't give this game much spice. Although the winner is the person who has acquired the most skills, this was distinctly anticlimactic.Read more ›
There actually is strategy in the game. Throughout the game you choose from 4 skills Logic, Intuition, Energy, and Fighting. The ultimate goal is to get the most skills. If you choose the Dark Side your destiny is dominated by fighting. This is because at the end of the game the Sith�s trial is a very hard fighting one. While the Jedi have to spread there skills between Logic, Intuition, and Energy. You�ll have to buy the game to develop a strategy but be warned the Dark Side is seductive not stronger! I am 18 and the two friends I play with are 17. We can�t get enough of this game. I have to admit it does get old after about the 15th time playing but it is so much fun. The spinner is horrible. After the 2nd game we just used a 10 sided die. All and all this is one of the better board games I own. Even my girlfriend (not a huge star wars fan) enjoys playing it. It�s a lot of fun seeing what lightsabre you get and who your Jedi Master is going to be. It's also fun if you choose the Light Side the skills you chose determine what kind of Jedi you are (In the rule book). Buy it. LOVE it.
