In Star Wars: Outer Rim you get to play as characters like Han Solo, Lando Calrissian and Boba Fett and Doctor Aphra, each out to complete missions, jobs and bounties whilst also evading the various factions that would be out to stop them in their tracks.

Star Wars Outer Rim Gameplay - Fantasy Flight Games

There are definite shades of Merchants & Marauders and Firefly: The Board Game in this as you venture from planet to planet, unveiling encounter cards and building up a story as you work towards your end goal.

Many of the encounters you'll get mixed up in on your travels will challenge your skills and maybe shift the balance of power between the Rebellion and the Empire as well as forces like the shadowy Hutts and their criminal empire.

You can fight against one or all of them if you wish, giving you certain privileges but also potentially opening you up to being hunted by the others!

Each character has their own personal goal which they are aiming to complete which allows you to flip your character to their more experienced side, no doubt leading towards an end game scenario. Your ship can also upgrade and grow with you, being flipped to reveal a more powerful set of options and actions too.
