"Our Rebellion is all that remains to push back the Empire. We think you may be able to help us."
New leaders. New missions. New tactic cards that lead to more fully cinematic combats... Rise of the Empire is an expansion for Star Wars?: Rebellion inspired largely by Rogue One. And just as the movie provided new insight into the Galactic Civil War presented in the original Star Wars trilogy, Rise of the Empire adds new depth and story to your Rebellion game experience.
You can send Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor to recover the Death Star plans. You can confuse Imperials with false orders and assaults behind enemy lines. You can command Director Krennic and his finest death troopers. And you can set traps for the Rebel pilots and soldiers, luring them away from their base and into massive battles with more fully cinematic combat and tactics. Even Jabba the Hutt makes an appearance, offering his services to the Empire and feeding his prisoners to the Sarlaac.
Altogether, Rise of the Empire introduces eight new leaders, thirty-six plastic miniatures, five target markers, two attachment rings, three new dice, and more than one-hundred new cards. You'll find U-wings, TIE Strikers, Nebulon-B frigates, and the Interdictor. You'll gain new ways of subverting your opponent's plans, and you'll discover a whole new chapter in your ongoing Galactic Civil War!

The biggest change that Rise of the Empire brings to Rebellion is the new combat mechanics, which replace the old system. The original tactics mini cards have been replaced with normal sized tactics cards for ground and space combat. Now, each player secretly selects a tactic card before each round of combat from his deck. After simultaneously revealing the cards, each player announces whether he will use the cards' top or bottom ability. (Often the top ability will be tied to a certain unit, and can only be activated if that unit is present in the battle). Players then roll dice to determine casualties just as in the base game. Now, since a leaders' tactics ratings don't determine how many tactics cards he draws, he can instead re-roll that number of dice. Also, cross-sabers in combat now acts as shielding, allowing players to cancel hits against their units. The Empire's Interdictor Cruiser can prevent rebels from escaping with its gravity wells that prevent a hyperspace escape.
Should you buy this expansion? The core game is fantastic, one of my favorite games of 2016 (and I play a lot of games every year). The problem with the core game is that the combat system always felt wonky. The expansion improves combat greatly, and makes it more streamlined. It's still not the combat system that this game deserves, but it is light years better than the core set's rules. The new tactic cards offer some fun and engaging choices, while the re-rolling dice and shield cancelling of hits also heighten the tension of each round of combat. The leaders are fun, too, and the minor abilities and green dice offer some that extra little spice that makes your mission rolls that much more exciting. The new mission cards also offer some great new challenges and choices for players.
One of the things I love about Star Wars Rebellion is the stories it tells. No two games ever tell the same story, and now with even more choices and challenges found in Rise of the Empire, Rebellion is that much fun and engaging. I really love Star Wars Rebellion, and this expansion is a fantastic new way to enjoy this great game. If you like Rebellion, you're going to want to pick this expansion up ASAP!
The Discriminating Gamer
And, most importantly, Rise Of The Empire streamlines (but does not completely fix) the clunky combat system; the game's only flaw. But the rules changes are a HUGE step in the right direction.
This is a MUST HAVE....it's as simple as that!
