Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars With These Games

It’s never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan. Not only are there movies, shows, and books, to immerse yourself in, there’s also no shortage of fantastic tabletop games that can let you play out your own adventures in the action-packed universe.

Looking to get in on the Star Wars tabletop action, but don’t know where to start? Check these out:

STAR WARS REBELLION

This game made quite a splash last year, so much so that it made Geek & Sundry’s Best Games Of the Year list. Because of its immersive and exceptional gameplay experience that lets you walk through the original trilogy, and a new expansion coming out soon, now’s a perfect time to bring it to your table.

STAR WARS: DESTINY

This is a game that’s light and accessible from the starter box, but offers a lot of delight and depth through being a collectible game. It’s fun, fast-paced, and our in-depth rundown of the game will tell you everything you need to know to get in and get rolling.

THE STAR WARS RPG OF YOUR CHOICE

images Yes, we used the plural there because there have been many (and some that have even influenced Star Wars canon), though the currently supported (and thus most readily available) offerings from Fantasy Flight Games, including Edge of the Empire (which we’ve gone into detail on) and its compatible counterparts Age of Rebellion and Force And Destiny should be easy to pick up from your local game store.

STAR WARS X-WING: THE MINIATURES GAME

X-Wing Game meta

There is no list of Star Wars tabletop games that is complete without talking about X-Wing. If miniatures, space battles, and two-player head-to-head battles are your sort of thing, this highly popular game is perfect whether you choose to fly casual, or prefer competitive play. Not convinced? We tell you exactly why you should be checking out the game, though admittedly, making “pew pew” noises when you fly around your table was enough for us.
