Sure, playing the hero can be fun, but so can embracing the dark side once in a while. Here, players pick a “Star Wars” villain to portray — Darth Vader, Asajj Ventress, Kylo Ren, Moff Gideon, and General Grievous — and are given a villain deck, a fate deck, a player board, and a 3D character. Each villain possesses its own set of abilities, missions, and storylines, providing countless ways for players to fulfill their evil destinies.

This game is spot-on for true “Star Wars” lovers, as it doesn’t just pay lip service to the popular series, but incorporates many elements from the entire saga into the gameplay. While there are a good number of rules to absorb, they actually contribute to a more immersive gaming experience as they count on a fair amount of strategy to manipulate events in your favor during your quest to defeat the Rebel Alliance and rule the galaxy.
