This year, Fantasy Flight Games has one big announcement after the other about their biggest game series. Last weekend, the publisher has announced their newest board game in the Star Wars universe: Star Wars Outer Rim. Take on the role of a bounty hunter, mercenary, or smuggler and take your spaceship into the cosmos to become the most famous (or infamous) outlaw in the galaxy!
In Star Wars Outer Rim you will fly to the boundaries of the known universe to acquire crew members and complete special missions in which you might for examples smuggle or steal cargo from the empire. But beware who you trust, The different factions know outlaws like this quadrant and are really eager to capture you!
By smuggling cargo or completing missions in this game you can collect loads of tokens and earn fame. You can use the money to hire more and better crew members (such as the well known Lando Calrissian or Han Solo) and buy the best spaceships (like a YT-1300 light freighter). This allows you to outrun other factions and carry more cargo on your missions. The winner of the game is the player who is the first to collect 10 fame points.
Star Wars Outer Rim has been announced to release the second quarter of 2019.
